You can't tell from the picture but life, really is, good. HAHA. A lot has happened this year, it has been a great 2009 for us.
Can you believe that Ron has been home for 9 months?!?!?!?!? It's been so good having him here. I don't know how many times I told him how happy I was to have him home this year, since last year was spent in Iraq. Even though I was fortunate enough to be able to go home to Memphis for the Holidays last year, it was awful not being able to be with Ron...there was definitely an absence. Especially since Jaxon came along! So knowing what Christmas is like with him gone, I don't want to do it again...but we will have no choice when next summer rolls around. Trashcanistan will be calling his name.
I finished my "first" semester with a 3.0! As embarrassing as it is to admit, it is not my first semester of college but it is my first semester that I have taken seriously...so I'm going to roll with it! I am now enrolled for 14 more hours starting January 20th. I'm really excited. It doesn't look like I am going to make the deadline for the 2010 Nursing school start but I will for sure make the 2011. School will be a nice distraction for the next deployment.
Let's see...what else. Jaxon now says "Look at that!" I'm guessing that's all I said to him at Disney World because he says it...and knows how to use it. He points and everything, it truly is darling. He's such an amazing kid. He has figured out how to go down the stairs within the past couple of days as well. As amazing as he is, he is as much of a handful. I guess that's how kids make parenting worth it, huh?
And wow, 2010. Really?! It was 10 years ago that I remember wondering if the Y2K thing was really as bad as they were saying...obviously it wasn't. It is funny how people like to start, spread and believe hype like that.
Oh yea and I just wanted to say...it was 13 years ago today that my grandpa passed away. I miss him and I just know he is out there, he is sitting at his Mac computer reading this right now. I love you, grandpa.
