The latest in my life

Well, Uncle Sam has spoken once again. What did he say? After less than 2 years here in Fayetteville we have orders to move to Ft. Lee, Va. Did I mention we bought a house here in Fayetteville? The joys of serving your country. The plan is to rent out our house, and rent a house in Va. We plan on getting a house well under our BAH, which probably means smaller than what we have now (which is smaller than what we had in Germany). Time to once again go through the house and get rid of stuff. This move I am planning on thoroughly destashing my craft and fabric supplies. I am planning on a two fold approach to this. First: selling supplies on etsy as commercial supplies (fabric and scrapbooking supplies). Second: making scrapbooking and card making embellishments, and other paper crafting projects (using my new cricut expression and paper and supplies I already have.) The paper crafting supplies I am selling on my new etsy shop  So, the next few months will be fun, seeing what I can come up with on my new toy. Actually spending time crafting again. Maybe I will have a few new craft projects to blog about again. 

More Vacation Photos

Keara has recently become fascinated with my clothes. She really likes my bras. So between her and her daddy we have the following photos...

This is what happens when I take pity on Keara and share my peanut M&M's. She likes to suck the candy shell off first.
The following are a couple more pictures of our vacation to Maryland. We went on a pontoon boat ride on the Chesapeake Bay. Keara liked it for the most part, but she really wanted to get down to run around the boat. That, of course, didn't happen and here is the result.

Wow! Has it really been 5 months??? What kind of blogger am I? Well, this is as good as it will get. Maybe I'll post again before another 5 months have past. The best news in the last 5 months is that Brandon got home safe and sound from Iraq last month!!! Keara has had so much fun having him home. It's great to see how excited she is when he gets home from work. We went on a week vacation to Maryland recently and stopped by DC on the way home. Here are a few pictures. They are out of the order I wanted them in, I forgot how it changes the order you load them in. Oh,well. For your first pic of Keara you get her melt down on the tour bus, instead of the smiling pic I thought would be first. It was hot, she was sweaty and hadn't had her nap. So this is what a half hour of the tour looked like.

We did the Tourmobile and got to see all the major sites. It was pretty cool. You could get on and off as much as you wanted.

The lady behind us kept making faces at Keara when I was trying to get some pictures of her smiling. So I got a bunch of her with her mouth open.

She finally took a nap and was in a much better mood afterward. I hope she keeps napping for several years, but it sure is an inconvenience when you are traveling and want to do things in the afternoon.
