At the end of the day it's all about FAMILY

He fell asleep while coloring Santa Clause a picture :)

You just can't help but love this kid, seriously...seriously look at that mug!!!

* This Thanksgiving was especially meaningful to me this year. I feel that we have so much to be thankful for and I surely felt that all day long!!! Man I was a boob all day, so sorry to those who had to hang out with me I just couldn't help but cry. Especially once we sat down and discussed all that we had to be thankful for. I love all of my family and I love my husband. We missed Sean alot but were able to talk with him on the phone and also read a very touching letter he had wrote to be read with all of us family gathered together. These past few months have not been easy being separated from each other, having to make serious decisions with out Sean by my side, but these past 4 months have also been some of the greatest months because even with having thousands of miles between us, we have grown so strong together and I can honestly say that our marriage has never been so strong. Sean has grown so much spiritually and emotionally. He is such a great human being and I am stronger for having him as my husband. It is easy to go day by day and get caught up in all of the chaos, but for me this holiday season has been an eye opener and I thank my Heavenly Father each and every morning and night for blessing me with all that I have been given, all that I have faced, and all that I am going to face. I know I am blessed and loved by many, but the love from Sean and also the love I have from Christ is priceless.

Halloween was so much fun this year and Porter has been so patiently anticipating for the past month the day when he was allowed to wear his Hulk costume. Everytime I'd open up his closet he'd ask for "Hulky" but once it came down to putting the costume on and trying to paint his hair and face, he was not having any part of it!!! After a slight melt down and me losing the battle to the paint, we went out to my sister's trunk or treat and also up to my parents trunk or treat. He was so polite asking for his "Treat" and always saying "Thankyou", afterwards we had a party with mine and Sean's friends. Porter was definately much happier there, it was nice and warm and he was surrounded by toys. He was so fascinated by so many of our friends' costumes. Sean was way bummed out that he wasn't here to celebrate his favorite holiday with his 2 superheroes, but he is enjoying what they are doing right now, all of the weapons and training. He is done with Basic Training on November 13! Which flew by so fast. After he leaves there he'll head over to Virginia to do his AIT at Fort Lee. I'm just getting through this by knowing that it seems once Halloween is over we barely celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner. Then he'll be home with us for the holidays for 2 weeks!!!
