Veterans Day and more.....

On Veterans day my hubby Frank was on "Flag Crack", because he came home with so many United States flag socks and this GIANT flag that we hung on the back of the house, it was huge!!!! But we are all so proud of our country and its veterans past, present and future!!!! We have alot of veterans in our family, my daddy, grandfather, we both have uncles ,so many friends, my Frank and our Steven. We are still humbled and will forever be that way for the fact that God kept Steven safe during his two tours in Iraq. We had a little impromptu bar-b-q with cake. Here are a few pictures from the evening.
Frank came home with Steven, Megan, my daddy and myself ARMY jerseys and himself a NAVY jersey.
Amy and Christopher....I love this picture!!!!
Here is Steven and his Dad
Our Little Rockin Grandbutton Joshua!!!
This is JiHo,he is a foreign exchange student from Korea that is living with Emily and her family....we are having a great time getting to know him....we just need to fatten him up!!!! lol
One of my best friends Carol and my sister Kerry..... it was a rough day for Carol and her kids, when they got home their little Chihuahua , "chubby" had been killed by a hawk.....sooooo sad!!
Drake and Lily

The other night we decided to roast marshmallows so I thought I would share a few pics!!!
Jena!!!
Heres Jade being a Turd...I told her you are going to burn your lip and of course she would not listen....well when she left, she had a big blister on her bottom lip!!!! Meme knows everything!!!!
Jade,Lily, Jena and Astrud
Rayn and Lily.....
Rayn being silly....

I have been laughing at Frank because I swear he is "Nesting" too!! In the last three weeks, he has bought me a new gas firepit for the backyard, we recently purchased brand spanking new leather furniture for the living room...his idea, on monday we are having wood floors installed in our living room and hallway...his idea. I wont show you a pic of the new furniture until the floors are done, I also got another one of those Tiffany blue boxes the other day , it was a new pair of earrings, I got a new cherry wood jewelry box that stands about 3 1/2 feet tall that I think is just beautiful, Astrud has gotten all kind of new clothes and shoes and the other dayyyyyy......he surprised me and brought my dream dining room table and hutch!!!!! I am getting 4 more chairs so all of us will be able to sit at the table without bringing computer chairs in and I think the Hutch is absolutely beautiful!!! These pictures don't do any of it justice. It is the old farmhouse style and I just love it!!! I know alot of people tell me that Astrud and I are spoiled, well just so you know, he is also spoiled but his love is above all, he is an incredible man, husband and father and I thank God for him every single day of my life.

Veteran's Day is still so hard for me...I always end up never saying anything, and then being afraid that people think that I am flippant. I just can't look at the pictures of the flag covered boxes...Tyrone losing friends in Iraq is still so fresh and my feelings about him having been there are so hard to describe...and knowing that he will go back....it's more then I can take. But it's never far from my mind....anyway, I'm glad y'all got to celebrate, and I love you in your Army jersey.

I am so glad that you got those new things, and you deserve every bit of it! Love y'all so much, and I am so glad you and Frank have each other!

Love!
Bailey

You guys are awesome! I remember I used to look at you and Frank and think...wow, soul mates, that stuff really does exist! (you know what period in my life I'm talking about)! You two never cease to amaze me! Y'all have such a beautiful love and it shows in your smile, your eyes and in every thing you do! I'm so blessed to have such beautiful friends in my life! I love your new hutch and table and can't wait to see the leather furniture! You know when we come back and build...it's you & Kerry that are going to have to help me out with the decor and I've been eye balling the leather furniture! Can't wait! The Veteran's Day tribute was just heart touching! You know, it takes on a whole new meaning to me now that I'm a military wife...the sacrifices are so huge, I still can't imagine! I'm forever thankful to the past, present and future service men and women...they truly are America's heros! I love you all!
