Random Stuff that I didn't get to blog about this week

As you know, this has been one heck of a week for our little family, as a result, the little things that I would have blogged about in a normal week got pushed to the side. So here are a few tidbits that I'd like to share.

***************************

I surprised Hubby with his "coming home" present a year early, since a friend of mine was selling it and I wanted to make sure it was exactly what he wanted. It was and he was THRILLED beyond belief. I wish I could have truly surprised him with it when he got home, but, eh... you do what you've gotta do, right??

The 3 days of Spring we get here in Kansas have come and gone, lol... but look what they left behind!

My lovely rose shrub and hosta plant by the front door:

AND our Strawberries!! WOW!

James and Daddy checking out the Strawberries they planted last year in the planter they made:




Wow, Dad! Look at all the berries!!






Here's one *almost* ready to eat!




Let's not forget the carrots:




***************************

This is first time I've EVER seen James draw a pic of a recognizable person

James: "That's ME! With a lot of HAIR! Ha Ha Ha Ha!"

He kept turning the drawing pad upside down and saying "Look I'm frowning!!" and then right side up and saying "Now I'm smiling!" What a card!:




The 2nd time I've ever seen him draw a recognizable person and the FIRST time he's ever drawn a picture of our family (the "faces" don't have heads around them.... it's just dots for the eyes and nose and a curved line for the smile. The bodies come directly out of the smiles):

That, plus a whole lot of packing and running around, was our week. Busy, busy, busy.


p.s. We did get to speak with Hubby tonight. He's having a lot of briefings, ect right now, but he made it fine to Ft. Benning and will be flying out by the end of the week.

I love the strawberries! So awesome. I wish we werent in an apartment so we could do the same.

You are so brave..I just looked at your ticker and saw how many days you have left... I feel like such a pansy being upset when DH went underway for 40 days.

Stay strong mama!

Oh, my little hosta has gotten so big! Those roses look AMAZING! I remember how small it was when you planted it. You've got the green thumb going!
