8 years in the making

This was supposed to post yesterday on our anniversary but it didn't....not sure what I did wrong but here it is!!
Today we celebrate the beginning of a new year but also more importantly, our 8 year wedding anniversary.
When I think of all of the things that we have been through in the last eight years (good & bad,) it really makes my head spin! In a good way......

Here are just a few of our 8 year stats.....
*3 states/4 houses
*2 cross country moves
*2 in town moves
*3 deployments
*countless seperations due to training
*2 Beautiful babies with the third to also occur this year!
In honor of all these milestones, I wanted to share a little arcostic on Ben....
I also must say that I stole this idea from my friend, Katy's, blog.
B- Believer, brave, bright (Ben believes in Jesus first & foremost but will constantly believe in others as well! He is brave because well that is just the type of man that he can't do his job without a little bit of bravery! Ben is so bright that he just has to walk into the room and all my problems are fixed without him ever laying a hand on what I was working on. )
E- energetic (Ben is usually doing something ALWAYS. It seems like he has to have his body, hands, or mind working in some type of fashion. I admire that because I need downtime/naptime more than I really would like!)
N- Nice (Don't kid yourself this really matters! One of the first things that attracted me to this man was the fact that he was unfailingly nice to me, my friends, my animals, and everyone else that he encountered.
J-Just perfect (Ok so I know that is corny and I am not saying that he is without fault but I seriously never could have imagined a better mate. Thank goodness that God knows WAY better than what I do!)
A-adventurous (I love this about Ben because it pushes me out of my comfort zone. There is not a sport on earth that he is not ready to try. His job also has quite a bit more advenutre in it than I would like but it seems to please him!)
M-manly (Don't laugh...I think that this is an admirable quality and makes for a good leader!)
I-Intelligence (Ben knows so much even though he would deny this if you asked him!)
N- Not willing to give up...(ok I have preggo brain but I think that this is an important quality to have!)

Babe, I love you so much and pray that the next 80 years will be just as crazy!
Happy anniversary love.

Christmas Concerts/Parties for the kiddos

For my family that is Facebook incomplete, I am going to try as much as I can to get caught up with blogging our pictures from Thanksgiving on before we leave Wednesday so that y'all can see what we have been up to!

She loved having us in her classroom!

Daddy was able to get off work for Kendall and Isaac's concerts!

Christmas Party

Each year, it seems like we are bombarded with Christmas parties. (This year has been no exception....except for the fact that we haven't gone to but 2 out of 7! Of course that will go to 3 out of 8 come Saturday night but who's counting!)
It hasn't been an easy pregnancy so unfortunately we have cut out some "fun" stuff so that we can concentrate on all the things that need done around the house!
Ben has been a huge helper with wrapping presents & shopping. Christmas cards are slowly being mailed.(I think I may take Ben up on printing labels next year!)
Christmas orders for my business are also slowly being filled.
And I am slowly starting to get back into the Spirit of Christmas.
I wanted to share a little bit of Christmas joy in form of our visit with Santa at Ben's work party for MAG-29.
Still afraid of the Man in red!

But at least we gave high 5's

And hugs which is a huge improvement over last year!

Baby Names

So Ben and I spent a large majority of our travel time in Texas discussing baby names.
We are having a hard time finding the "right" one for us both. So we are going to ask family and friends to help us out!
I am going to put some of our favorites out there and we wanted to see what y'all think you like the best!
I am hoping to make a little voting box for the blog or you can comment/email us too!
We would appreciate it :)
Ok so here are our favorites so far!
Kimberlynn Mae
Harper Mae
Piper Mae
Dusty Mae
Tristan Mae
Taitum Mae
(So her middle name is Mae just in case you didn't get that one!)
Looking forward to hearing from y'all!
