Last weekend we were able to throw a little birthday party for Abigail. We were so blessed that John could be there for her birthday. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Abigail is now one. I can't believe how quickly this year went by. This time last year was wonderful and difficult. I hated that John missed her birth. He hated not being there, but he knew I was in good hands. I wish I could say that things were going to get easier or that things were going to calm down this year, but that is not the case with military life. Here we are about to start craziness all over again. I am in a good place mentally and spiritually ready to tackle this year long deployment.
Enjoy the pictures down memory lane and new ones too.
This was right before I left for the hospital...I remember being so excited to meet Abigail. My Dad and I were staying at my grandparents and he drove me to the hospital. We left at 4:00 am and Marmee (my grandma) got up to kiss me good bye and tell me she was praying for me. I will always remember that when I look at this picture.
My mom got to the hospital we took this picture and about 30 minutes later I was holding Abigail.
She is here..
My three little cuties...I am so blessed.
A year later and just precious.
I love these little lips..
Last week John was able to have some leave days. We had some really good time as a family and were able to get more accomplished in our home. One day we went to the Mill Mountain Zoo in Roanoke, Va. It is a cute little zoo perfect for the girls. They have a cute train ride, animals and a park. We brought a picnic lunch and had just a great day. Here are a few pictures from our day...

It has been a month since my last blog update....We survived the move! I know we will move again, but moving is just plain stressful! The house was in really bad shape and I was not in a good place when I saw the walls alone in the house. We have done some painting, got new carpet in the basement and I have cleaned and srubbed the floors with bleach. I am feeling a whole lot better about the house and it is looking a little more like home! John finished WLC and finished in the top 20%. I am very proud of him. He has some leave days so he is at home with us now. We are excited about having some quality family time before he has to leave again.
Easter 2011--John was able to come home to go to church with us that morning
Abigail was not interested in pictures with her older sisters
She is such a sweet baby...I can't believe she is almost 1.
