Time and Tuts

Oh man Time is flying.... soon this year will be gone....This year has been a year of changes not just for me personally but a year of changes for the Simpson family as well.... As many of you know My husband returned on Feb 1st from a 15 month deployment to Iraq. Its been awesome having him my family left NY and moved to Oklahoma for our PCS move.... Its been ok down here....The weather has been good although there were days when it was hotter than hades but thats ok....As far as dealing with the different places on base thats another story... its sooo different from Drum and in fact in some places it was much much worse... There are days when I want to go back to Drum. My kids have started school.. I have a freshman and a sophomore. Yikes scary! Although did you know that this school mandates that these kids walk through metal detectors thats how bad the violence is in the school!! Scary stuff!! I am so proud of both of my kids.,.They have adjusted very well and are actually getting involved in things....My daughter is part of the JROTC as well as Key club..She just had her very first HS spirit week and had a blast! Jayson is bowling and enjoying other activities and he too is loving it.....
I on the other hand have been working for the government at a shoppette on base. Its been good working there. We do have alot of laughs which is a good thing... Mike has been put on detail away from his unit... its nice to have him home early for a change!

Ok next subject lol have you gone to a fave tut site or scrap site and discovered it was no longer around?? I found that out this morning that several of my fave sites are gone :( oh well back to the drawing board....

anyway I have new pics posted at MtA....Should be released soon so keep your eyes out....

off to the drawing board you all have a great day!

egads am I behind lol

Ok I know its been well over a month since I last posted but man its been crazy
FIRST The concert was freaking awesome... he was too cool.... then had fireworks afterwards...... THEN in the middle of July my husband and I were able to find a place to rent here in Lawton for only $425 a month yay! Then on July 21st I received a phone call from my friend Michelle........She gave me the worse news a wife could ever receive she had lost her husband in the war in Afghanistan :( my heart still breaks for her... She is strong though....The funeral was intense and sad...but beautiful... each one of his kids along with Michelle and his parents received a flag....

along side all of this I have started working at the Shoppette on the base,. My work hours are crazy but its ok. There is never a lack of action around the store lol

woohoo my kids start back to school on the 21st!! YAY!!

Then went to the Mall( Damn I know Salmon Run Mall was small but this mall is even smaller!)We walked the whole mall in like 10 minutes( and yes that even stopping in stores to look!)Came back and hung out here for a bit. Sat down and played Phase 10 with Mike and Christina and Amanda..... LOL Amanda came from behind and kicked out asses! Well later on Mike and I and the kids went for a walk...Course it wasnt a long run cause 1/2 through it Mike had to go to the bathroom so came home and then everyone was just to hot so said we would do it tonight........Little bit of drama here but thats life in a house with 3 families!!!! oooooo Also where we are staying at is right down the street from Polo Field( yep the SAME place where TIM MCGRAW will be flying into on Friday for the concert!)Well a ton of buses escorted by a few MP's came down our road ... That could only mean one thing!!! Welcome Home Soldiers!!! It was too cool. We got to hear everyone screaming and such........I am so behind in creating....

WOW Time Flies

LOL I cant believe its been a month since I last posted.... But in that month LOADS of things happened( all for the good of course!)
1st off my husband Michael returned safely from Iraq on the 1st....YAY!!!
2 we got our tax refund so we bought a few things for the house and for me including a new printer! I sooo needed one....
Also we went on vacation to both Ohio and Minnesota to visit both sides of the family....
We had alot of fun! While we were in MN we went to this HUGE outdoor sports place called Cabela's...its so awesome... we love going there every time we go home. My FIL was nice enough to buy Jay & Christina helmets for the 4 wheeler. Then when we went to Cabela's Michael bought us one as we needed it.... We also went to the Mall Of America and had such an awesome time.....If you havent been there.... you should go . its so cool...With Legoland and the Nick themepark in there plus the hundreds of stores...its so worth the trip. They also have this awesome underwater adventure aquarium... There is a 300 foot tunnel that you walk through and meanwhile all the sharks and sting rays and a couple HUGE turtle float around you,... it was amazing... got some good pics there too.....will try to post some of them later for you.... We returned home a day later than we originally intended but that was due to weather issues... Course now we are all sicker than dogs. Chris and Mike are the worse though.. They have nasty sinus infections.
The picture I am sharing is when Christina walked up to the glass to the see the turtle better it floated up to her as if to say hi.... She is such an animal magnet LOL

Anywho off to do some creating and ughhh here comes the rain!

Have a good day
