Well, the decision has been made. C will be going to the war college in Newport, RI. He will be moving in late January to start classes in Feb and the kids and I will move up in June when T gets out of school. And then we'll pack up and move again in early 2010. Don't know where that will be yet, but at least the next year is planned out. ha Hopefully these orders won't change!
Just a quick update today. nothing else is going on. thank goodness!!

What a week...

Leave it to the Navy to create havoc in our lives (again!). C checked out of the command last Friday for 2 & 1/2 weeks of leave before flying out. He got a phone call Monday afternoon saying his orders have been cancelled. So now, he has to scramble to figure out what to do/where to go next so that he doesn't burn up all of his leave. And then, depending on what he decides, we may have to pack up and move ourselves as early as January. He has some options open for him, but none of them are as good as what he would have been doing overseas. And believe it or not, we are both pretty dissappointed about him not going now. Not that I wanted my hubby gone for that long, but we had plans for the next couple of years that are now out the window. We have been planning on this trip since last spring so several little detail type things are now having to be re-worked in just a few short days. Its things like this that make me just loooove the Navy! NOT!
In other news... K finally got her first 2 teeth in this past weekend. It was painful, for her and the rest of us. She was quite the little grouch on Sunday. Hopefully, she will not get any more in for a bit and meybe they won't give her as much trouble. Wishful thinking, I know.
We are getting ready to head to SC this weekend for Thanksgiving. T is so excited about that. He wants us to move to SC to live all the time. If only the Navy had options for us there. Oh well...

Baby dedication

We had a Baby Dedication Day at church for 2 of the babies who were born in the last year at our church. K did wonderfully, not that she had anything in particular to do except stay in my arms. the other little guy, who just learned to walk, wanted to do just that-get down and walk around. HE is pretty cute and everyone was good-nautred about it, of course. I think his parents were a bit embarrassed but I'm sure he will provide many more embarrassing moments for them in the years to come. I know this from experience. I won't go into details on that one... lol
Anyway, here is a pic

Not a lot going on here, as usual. C is still trying to get a few projects done around the house before he leaves. That is coming up faster than I care to think about. He found out last month that he will only get one leave period instead of two as we had previously thought. I am going to have to buy a huge jar for our "Daddy kisses" this time. I think I am going to do enough for the first 6 months and then do enough for the last 6 months, instead of counting down the whole year. I think that will be easier for T and I won't have to count as many kisses at once. lol

T-man is doing very well in school. He has learned enough letters to start making words. He has a word list of around 50 words that he can actually read. So proud of him! I think once he realized how to sound out the letters and then blend the sounds together to form words, he thought it was pretty cool. So now he is practicing more at home and wanting to send "messages" to T-pa and Papa. Those are mostly just him typing out the words he can spell.

K is finally starting to crawl around on her hands and knees more, although she still prefers the commando crawl when she going "cross-country". She is also pulling up to her feet all the time. She hasn't started cruising anywhere yet, but I'm sure that is coming soon. I think she is finally starting to get her 2 bottom teeth in. I can see and feel the little bumps on her gums, although they are not red and inflamed looking yet. I hope they aren't too rough for her.

That's about all that is going in our household. That's about all I want to be goign on right now too. :)
