this was as close to him as we got

My dad had a Christmas Party last week and we got to see Santa! He came a read a story and then all the kids got to sit on his lap, except my child. He was so excited to see him and was happy and laughing, until it was his turn, then we wanted nothing to do with the Big man all he wanted was the bag of treats he was giving out.

Last week Renae, Peyton, Dylan and I all went up to Ogden for my little sisters birthday. We went out to lunch and then went back and hung out at Christa's house. Dylan thought he was pretty cool with uncle Jack's glasses on.

We went to Grandpas house to help put up his lights and the kids played outside. Then we went inside and helped decorate the Tree. Dylan is still having a hard time learning that we don't get to play with the "Balls" on the Christmas tree.


For thanksgiving Dylan and I went to my parents house. My dad just finished making a fire pit and a horseshoe pit in his garden so while it was still warm out side we all played horseshoes while the Turkey was cooking. Dylan thought the game was pretty cool and he even got to throw the shoe a few times. Dylan was Papa's shadow the whole day. He was right by his side and ever since then he loves Papa and cant wait to see him.

Saying Goodbye

So its been about a month since Steve left and things are finally starting to feel as normal as possible. Dylan and I had our 2 weeks straight of melt down at ourselves and at each other but we are finally getting to the point where we don't cry at the drop of a hat! We had a really ruff time in the beginning and I am sure that most of it was my fault because when I cried it made Dylan cry and then I got really stressed and then cried some more. Dylan has had separation anxiety really bad and I know that its part the age that he is at and part Daddy leaving but it has been hard, he would even cry if I walk out of one room in the house to another, we are still working on it but it is definitely better. We miss Steve alot, every time I am on the computer Dylan thinks that he gets to talk to Daddy on the Web Cam but sadly he doesn't have that available at his base yet, and every time the phone rings Dylan thinks that its Daddy, its so cute but at the same time it breaks my heart. I am so Thankful that Steve is willing to serve his country and I am so proud of him. I had no clue what I was getting myself into when we got married but I am thankful everyday for the wonderful husband that I have and for his Love. I cant wait for the day when he gets home but for now we are just hanging in there. All three of us crying our eyes out( you cant tell but Dylan was crying really hard, he thought that I was the one leaving)
