Today has been another of those great days where we didn't do much but we did enjoy each other's company. We went to Jason's formation this morning and because I was guessing it was going to be a shorter engagement at the base (meaning I really didn't think they would have classes) and I guess I was right because at a short while after 08:00 Jason called me and let me know that he was done. I met him over at the same place I dropped him off for formation and then we were on our way back to the house.

We got back to the house to find the ladies (Linda and the girls) all having fun and still in their pajamas. Jason said he wanted to take us all out for breakfast, and then go on to Costco to pick up some things. It was decided to head on over to a restaurant that was close to Costco and that way we wouldn't have far to drive, after we were done. Breakfast was over, and we all decided that we wouldn't want to go there again; service was poor and the food was done poorly. Anyway, we headed over to Costco.

We got there is less than a minute (it was close to the restaurant, remember), and there were no parking slots open; or, at least none that we saw. We quickly realized that there were a bunch of folks out doing their last minute shopping for the new year parties that were going to be happening, and on top of that it was close to a payday. We decided that going to Costco was probably not such a good idea right now, and that we could just pick up a few things at the Grocery store. As a result we simply turned around (actually not as easy as it sounds) and headed back to the house.

Once at the house we all got going with doing some straightening up of the place, since there were definite signs that Christmas happened just a short time ago. After this was accomplished, the girls went down for a nap. What is really good about that is that they both will tell us they're tired and want to lay down... Really, they do tell us.

Linda and I decided to head over to the grocery store and pick up the things we needed, and since Joselyn was now here we could do it without any concerns or worry about time. Thanks to a gift from the ASYMCA (Armed Services YMCA), we had been given a Honey Baked ham, so I said I would cook that for dinner, which I did. It was very tasty, and the best thing was that I didn't have to clean up afterward. Linda said since I did the cooking she would do the clean up... worked for me.

The rest of the evening was spent having more fun with the girls and then Jason reading a couple of stories with them. Grandma and Grandpa put the girls down for the night and then we got a chance to just be with the two of us, not doing anything. Not sure what tomorrow is going to bring, but if it is anything like today it should be a very nice one. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Praying that this new year is a good one for you!
    Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
    Revelation 7:16-17 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
