*I didn't drop of the earth...*





...I'm so sorry that I didn't post anything lately...

On the 22nd of December my husband came home from his 14 month deployment from Iraq...finally :) We have to catch up on a lot of things...
It is so nice to have him home again :) He was on leave for a few weeks...the 1st week he relaxed and the 2nd week we took on a big project...we put hard wood floors down...OMG it is sooo much work...as you can see *Spooky* my 6 old month kitten was "helping me"...it took us forever but it we love how it changed our home...and we put tiles in our guest bathroom. We glued the wooden floor down...I was the glue girl :)...this glue was absolutely crazy! Anyway...we have a beautiful floor now but I have carpal tunnel syndrome on both arms :( it is pretty painful! I'm wearing my stabilizers at night...slowly but surely it is getting better YEAH

Kevin will go back to college for 1 year...after that he has to go for 6-8 month to Captain's school in a different State...but I will stay put :)
This upcoming year, I will take the opportunity to spend as much time with my husband as possible...after this 1 year in school he will be very busy again and he will work long hours.

I will not stop making dolls...I'm planing to sew a doll here and there but not regulary...I hope you understand...I will keep you updated...I will send you an email when I offer a new doll :)

I also included a picture of us all dressed up...we had a Tribute ball to our fallen Soldier's in our Battalion...

Hugs to all of you :)

So glad your hubby is home with you now. And your floor looks beautiful! I hope to some day redo the wooden floors under our carpeting. And your new little kitty helper is so darn cute up there on your back.

Just wanted to pop in and see what's shakin' ...

you are surely missed, sweet Ivonne, but relish your time together and do everything you have been putting off while he was in Iraq. I'm so happy for you, I know it was not an easy period of time while your dh was away.
