We had Christmas dinner at our friends. The Linsley's house. It was so nice to get together with friends. Which we haven't done in a couple years. Thank you Nichole and Noel for inviting us. We had a wonderful time. Then we came home and put together and played with toys. I put together a Tinkerbell tent for Sami. She loves it so much she's sleeping in it with her new baby doll.
We don't have any plans for the weekend except for munching on the leftover that Nikki sent home with us LOL. Have a great weekend all.

Yes it;s been a while since my last update. I've been quite busy with real life.
Back at the end of June and early July the kids and I went to Oklahoma to visit with family for a couple of weeks. All we really did was go to the zoo and visit all our relatives. Then Deryn met up with us once he was out of school and we drove to Texas to see his family.
This past August Alex started Kindergarten. His teacher said that he has adjusted well. He got his 1st nine weeks awards in October. He got one for citizenship and perfect attendance. We are all very proud. I can not believe that we are already half way through the school year. June will be here before we know it. On Thursdays i volunteer in his class. Whenever I walk in (or see his classmates outside of school) I get a big " Hi Alex's Mom!!!" LOL.
Sami is doing pretty good. We are still potty training. We are at a stand still because she's scared of pooping in the toilet. Everyday when we take Brother to school she asks if she can go to school too. I've told her that if she starts going in the potty that I would put her in school next year. So far she's not holding up her end of the bargain LOL.
I'm doing pretty good. I've lost 7lbs so far this year. I havent been to the gym in 2 months because someone in my house gets sick. Usually me ( haha).
D is doing good also. He checked into his squadron back in July and likes it a whole lot better than his last command. He recently took his E-6 test. He missed it by 10 points. He'll take it again in March so wish him luck.
I got a pretty awesome Christmas gift this year. Terry bought Mom tickets to come visit us. We had a wonderful 5 days. We took her shopping, and too the beach (5 times). I swear she would live at the beach if she could. (Ha).
I am so proud of my cousin Kathleen. She is serving on a 2 year mission for her church in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Please keep her in your prayers for a successful mission. You can follow her blog at redheadsarethebest.blogspot.com. Feel free to sign up for her newsletter.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas. God Bless you all!!

Me , I'm looking into going back to school. The military will pay about $6k for me to go to school. Which is awesome. How can I turn that down. Only problem is the school I'm interested in attending is on the other side of Jacksonville. I don't like to drive that far very often. So I may just look into online courses if I can. And also the school isn't on the list for militaryonesource and i cant figure out how to get it added LOL.
The kids and I are heading to Mom's for a couple of weeks then to Texas to see D's family. I hope D is able to take leave during his down time from school cus i rly don't want to drive back by myself. But i will if i have too LOL. My plans keep changing by the day. It's starting to get irritating LOL.
I leave u with this quote from Samantha. She says it to me every morning like I don't know who she is LOL. "Good morning Mommy. It's me Samanther's" Girl is too cute for her own words.

We got to Jacksonville Tuesday evening. Picked up our keys to the house on Wednesday. We've only been in this house for 2 weeks and the chain on our toilet snapped, sami broke an electric outlet with her poster ( don't ask me how she did it cus i dont know lol) and theres a clog deep in our pipes so the dishwasher hasnt worked right for the past 2 days. You just gotta loved remodeled homes. My washer finally died. The motor decided that it didnt want to spin anymore. So we just bought a new one. We've made numerous calls to the repair man for the past 2 years to come fix it but they came once to look at it. and have been making excuses since not to come back to fix it. Course that was back in Maryland and 2 days after we get here. My washer dies. I just decided that i was done with it. Tired of messing with effing retards that dont want to do their jobs. Believe D and I did rip them new ones.
Anyways, I am loving Florida. The people dont seem as crazy as they are up north lol. Much more friendlier anyways.
Next week D starts his school and Alex gets enrolled in Kindergarten. I drove by the school today and its really nice.
Dude to some circumstances that have come up I've had to delay my trip to Oklahoma til June. Which is no biggie. We are just waiting on D to get his cars registration paperwork in. I dont feel comfortable leaving him here without a car to drive to and from school. Hope all is well.

thats rescheduled for Monday. Deryn took his E-6 exam on Thursday. He says he done good. But feels that he didn't make it. We talked to housing in Mayport. There is a good chance that we will have a house when we get down there next month. Not just any house but one of the new houses. I'm very excited about that.Deryn talked to TMO about scheduling the move. So all we are waiting on is for the movers to call us. Yesterday the kids and I went outside and played in the snow. The head fell off a snowman and alex picked it up and chased me around the house with it. Then he threw it at me, but he missed LOL.
Today we have a whole lot of nothing besides catching up on laundry to do. Tomorrow Alex and Sami have a playdate over at the Jump Yard with friends.
*update* mayport housing called and as of today they only have a 2 bedroom available. But are expecting the new 3 and 4 bedrooms to be turned over anyday now. Please keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer too.

Tomorrow i have to go back up north to get my new plates and tags from the dealership. Oh joy i was kinda hoping that they would mail them to me. OH WELL... We need a day to get away from the phone. Ds work keeps calling him to come in when hes off work for stupid crap. so it would be nice to be away from the phone for a couple hours. We have to put Ds car in the shop to get brakes replaced and a tune up so it will be road ready.
Alex and Samantha have actually been rather quiet the past 2 days. ( knock on wood).
Hopefully D will be back on days on Monday or I'm gonna be uber pissed.
Grats to my friend Mandy and her hubby. Their dog is the cutest dog on Tinker this month. Miss Rosie is a doll. I just might go steal her. Muahahaha. but then again my "wifey" can get really mean and I don't want to get her mad. LOL.

And Alex is getting his 4 yr molars. Oh yeah thats so much fun.

I have an appointment next Friday to get mine trimmed and highlighted. That will be a great birthday treat.
This weekend Deryn and I are planning on driving up to Salisbury to test drive a car that we've been looking at. It's the only one we seem to agree on LOL.

Anyways I think i may have insomia. I find myself not going to sleep til almost 6 am now. I hope its just the excitement for the move. Im still gonna bring it up at my docs appoitment when i make it for my other problem.
So yeah housing at Mayport called and told D that they "didn't" recieve his paperwork. This being after he called after he sent it and they said they got it. ./sigh. Hopefully that got straightened out.
I'm not looking forward to V-day. (sorry Mandy.) I have my reasons. ( and Mandy my "wifey" made a cake without me so thats one of them LOL).

Samantha had her 3rd Birthday yesterday. It was good only Kari was sick and spent most of the day in bed. we didn't get any pictures because Deryn forgot to get a camera. We are planning on having another party when Mom comes to visit next week. So I promis we'll have pictures then.
Sami got a new dress and shirt from Mommy and Daddy. A mermaid barbie from Alex. A kitchen/cleaning set from Great Gamma. Princess pjs and a bear from Grandma and Grandpa. And this weekend we are going to pick out gifts from Meemee and PaPa. Thank you all for the gifts and the cards. She had a great birthday. We had pizza for dinner and Dora the explorer cake and icecream.
She is growing up so fast. Sami is talking more clearly and is going number one in the potty. Unlike when Alex started potty training, she's doing this on her own. She also knows her ABC and likes to pick out and put on her own clothes.
Alex is great. He is fully potty trained (except for the night time). He will be starting Kindergarten in August. Kari is looking forward to a quiet house during the day but also isnt ready for Alex to start school.
Kari is good. She will be turning 26 next week. She is planning on going back to school herself. Kari is starting to get real serious about losing weight. She has lost 7 pounds since Jan 1. But has slacked off in the past 2 week cus of everyone being sick in the house. She does plan on getting back on track once everyone is well.
Deryn is doing good also. He has been busy with work getting everything ready for the move to Florida.
Hopefully I'll keep this blog updated. But you all know how real life goes LOL.
Love to all,
Deryn,Kari, Alex and Sam.
