Lots of updates

I know it has been awhile since I've last posted. We have been so busy! So I guess I'll start with Justin's deployment ceremony. We had a special guest speaker.....the Governor of Alaska! It was very cool having her there speaking and supporting our troops.Joelle has recently discovered that she loves boxes! I had an empty Huggies box that was quickly turned into a soap box car. She loves it! One day I was on the phone for awhile and I knew Joelle was in her room playing so I did not worry about her. I later walked into her room and found her asleep in her box with a few of her stuffed animals.Joelle also learned from Daddy how to properly eat and enjoy Oreo's. She, of course, likes them!
Along with all of this fun stuff going on, we found out something else....
That's right! Baby #2 will be showing up October 2009! I'll keep you updated on our progress. My first appointment here isn't until I'm 10 weeks along so I've got a few more weeks to go before I know for sure there's a child in there and not just a food baby :-).

And our last bit of news is that Justin has left for his long journey. If you think of him please pray for him. Here are some of our last pictures:

I can not believe how big Joelle is!!! Where did baby Joelle go?? She grew up so fast! I love the oreo picture, that's just priceless. I hope baby #2 is being good to you and you've been feeling good so far. I think of you guys often and hope Justin's deployment goes fast for both of you!

yay for updates!!! i'm a big fan of pictures...even with no words...& you know you can schedule posts ahead, right?? so if you don't feel like you have time to post but have 57,000 photos to share with us, you can post a few each day. it'd keep me occupied for at least a few months ;)

AND i wanted to let you know that i posted that yummy "chunky" tomato soup recipe i told you about when we were visiting...in case you feel like eating chunks of tomatoes ;) i'll email you soon...i'm still stuck in the boonies.
