Two Things...

I went home this weekend to visit with my brother, Rich (i'll be nice, but i still call him Richie). I haven't seen him in over 3 years. It was so good to see his face. I missed him and it was just good to see him again.
Elijah turned 5!! I can't believe how fast he is growing up! He is such a fun and smart little boy. He too, was very excited to see his daddy...because he definitely kept telling me about it.

I started school, again, last week, but tonight was my official in-the-classroom-class!! I had two actually. My anatomy and physiology lab and lecture. I LOVED it!! I love being back in school. The whole time (which was FIVE hours) i had a huge grin on my face!! I'm sure as we really get into the swing of things, that grin will start to fade, but right now it just feels so good!! yay!!!!

These Fly Girls!

Oh my goodness, how i miss these lovely ladies!!! I couldn't stop laughing as i made this little picture, because it reminded me of how much fun we had and how much we laughed!! Jamie, Carrie, Neiva and Kelly have been such blessings in my life and i am pretty sure they always will be!! I mean seriously, who else could rock these afros like this?? the Jackson 5...i think not.

Grandma Patricia Clara Delaney

(Gma Patty is the first on the left)
I was able to come home, on emergency leave, early sunday morning. I am so thankful that i was and was able to spend a couple of hours with Grandma. Grandma passed away monday morning, Dec 15th around 11am. She's been sick with Alzeimers and Dimentia for about 3 years now. It's been tough seeing her like that and now she is resting in a much better place, praise to God. I will miss her very very much and it is so sad to see grandpa missing her too. They were married for SIXTY years, this year, and that is amazing and special. Thank you everyone, for your prayers and encouraging words.

The Pier..

I just wanted to post this one, because i thought it was pretty. I've had Photoshop for awhile now, but i still don't know how to use it!! I am trying I guess.....grrrrr!

Thanksgiving at the Beach!

The family rolled in to Pensacola and Elijah immediately let everyone know that only thing he needed to do was see the beach. How could you argue with that?? It turned out to be a lovely day here, about 71 degrees, so i agreed to take him out there. Mom was exhausted from the drive down, so she opted to stay back. So we went and boy am i thankful i decided to bring a towel and a change of clothes for him! He says "krissi, can i pllllease put my feet in??". i said "sure, it's nice out, but the water will still be cold!"
So, he goes to put his feet in and JUMPS totally in the water!! what was i to do?? i just let him enjoy it. I asked "elijah is that water cold??" He replies "oh yes, but i LIKE IT!!" was a good time and i am glad we got to spend the time together!

Christmas Tree!

Today, i put up the Christmas tree! Fa la la la la la la! It means Christmas is almost here. The sad part is, I have dumb duty on Christmas day. But what would my life in the Navy be, without duty on a GREAT holiday?! It'll be ok, I will find a way to celebrate the day.
