I will be reading these books 1-3 to the boys over the Christmas holiday. Percy has dyslexia although he sounds a lot like he has ADHD. My boys can totally identify with Percy. Although Jr. has read the first one I want to read it to all 3 boys. I think they will get a lot out of these books and I will enjoy them too. Anyone reading anything interesting for the holiday season?

It was sunny yesterday and we took the kids to get our tree. Here are the pictures from the hunt for the perfect tree. The hubby wanted to know if you cut a tree and then find a better one what do you do. I told him I don't think you're supposed to do that.

I'm late this year with buying a tree and decorating the house inside and out. My neighbor put up a lot of lights as you can see. So when my hubby came home from work tonight I pointed to their house and said "I want you to do that." Let's see what happens. If anything I will get something going on this weekend. Probably not as elaborate, but Christmasy all the same.

Thanks to Sandra (from: Diary of a Stay At Home mom) I won this recordable book which Dominic can use before he deploys to Afghanistan. The kids will get to hear this read by him every night. I was so excited to see I won this special book. Thanks so much again Sandra.

We decided to retire from the Army, 4 years to go, in Hawaii. Yes it's expensive, yes it's far away from the mainland, yes it's a scary move, but when me and the hubby met over 14 years ago we were both wild free spirits willing to try anything. Where did that take us? Germany, Spain, Washington, Hawaii....so why change now. You only live one life and Hawaii is where we want to be, so yes we are going for it...and nothing's gonna stop us now.

So here goes:
This week’s questions are:
- What characteristic about yourself has either been strengthened or weakened due to your experience as a Military Spouse? My tenacity. I have just used it recently in the move we made to WA. So many things I didn't like about my kids new school that I have been busy pushing my way in and making a difference. Weakness would have to be impatience. I don't like to be in the middle of change and that is what the military is all about. I am fine once I'm settled, I just hate limbo.
- What is your favorite vacation spot and why? Hawaii. I lived there almost 9 years and it was like a total vacation, in fact we will retire there. Hawaii, need I say more.
- If you could have any fast-food restaurant in the food court on base/post what would you pick? Chipotle's. Organic Mexican food. A healthy fast food restaurant. I am enjoying the one here in Federal Way but we don't have this on post.
- Where did you go on your honeymoon? Las Vegas. We were married there so I call it my honeymoon.
- If you could have any job in the world regardless of money, degree or experience, which job would you have and why? I don't really know. Probably some type of therapist. I like working with kids so maybe a guidance counselor in Middle school. Possibly elementary. I was at my kids school 4 hours yesterday helping put a new program into play and I totally loved being around the kids. Especially mine.

Well rain has finally come but it doesn't look like it will stay. We will have to see. At least I did not have to water my grass last night.
Not much on the agenda today. Just enjoying the quite house for awhile.

Because of my daughters medical needs we are lucky enough to get a house on post immediately. Even luckier for me it is one of the historical houses I have always wanted to live in. It has a fireplace, a porch dining area, and dormer windows. I know I will enjoy making this house my home. Luckily it has a full basement and 4 bedrooms. And if anyone was wondering it was sunny and hot in WA today.

I thought this was so cute. From the mouths of babes.
Two boys were walking home from Sunday School. They had just heard a firm teaching about Satan.
"What do you think about all that devil stuff?" one boy asked.
"Oh, I don't know," said the other one. "Remember Santa Claus? He turned out to be just your dad. The devil's probably the same thing."

Brandon and his girlfriend Adrianna (Adri) and her brother Jesse, with a bit of Darrian here at Chilies after graduating. Seems they saw many other classmates here. Without family close by everyone just kind of forms their own.

Be careful little eyes what you see
It's the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it's the little feet behind you that are sure to follow
It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It's a slow fade, it's a slow fade
Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray
The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you're thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

A man died and went to heaven. He was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter who led him down the golden streets. They past mansions after beautiful mansions until they came to the end of the street where they stopped in front of a shack. The man asked St. Peter why he got a hut when there were so many mansions he could live in. St. Peter replied, "I did the best with the money you sent us."

A thoroughly mind provoking film about 3 young women whom, under tragic circumstances see themselves cast away to a Magdalene Asylum for young women t in 1964. One of many like institutions, the asylums are run like prisons and young girls are forced to do workhouse laundry and hard labor. The asylum, one of many that existed in Theocratic Catholic Ireland, is for supposedly 'fallen' women. Here, young girls are imprisoned indefinitely and endure agonizing punishments and a long, harsh working system which leaves them physically drained and mentally damaged. As the girls bond together, it soon becomes clear that the only way out of the Magdalene convent is to escape, but with twisted Sister Bridget running the wing, any chances seem limited...

When we lived in WA we used to eat at a place called Anthony's. The best thing about Anthony's was their Australian lobster. It has a slightly sweet taste. I also loved their version of Asian dressing. The view ain't bad either. This is one of the first places I can't wait to go when I get back to WA.

Which Way to Heaven?
Reverend Billy Graham tells of a time early in his ministry when he arrived in a small town to preach a sermon. Wanting to mail a letter, he asked a young boy where the post office was. When the boy had told him, Dr. Graham thanked him and said, "If you'll come to the Baptist Church this evening, you can hear me telling everyone how to get to heaven."
The boy replied, "I don't think I'll be there... You don't even know your way to the post office."

Today I made these brownies. They were awesome. The best thing about them is they are organic. I coupled them with a scoop of Stoneyfield Farms organic ice cream I bought at Whole Foods. All I can say about the Stoneyfield Gotta have vanilla ice cream is "Oh My God." I will never, ever buy another brand of ice cream. For junk food, these two products are top of the line, and organic to boot.
