He's Home!

Steven is finally home! He arrived Monday morning safe and sound, and we've had a great couple days so far! Lacy and I were soooo happy to see him! I'm sorry for the late post, but I kinda forgot about the blog until today...sorry! We started on a project...we're building a bed...and it's almost done. We still have to put the finish on it, but we've had a great time making it. We always have to have a project to work on, it's nice! We're also cooking Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow and having David (Steven's bro) & his friend and our close friends Chris & Emily and their girls over. It's going to be so fun, we have so many things to be thankful for this year. More to come later....Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless!

Picking Steven up from the Airport...we are so Happy!!

Lacy is so excited to see Steven...she can't control her bladder! hahaa!

Update on Steven

Well, it's Saturday and Steven's still not home. This is the army for you, you never know what's going on! oh well. I know his flight got postponed from Afghanistan to Kuwait, so I think he flew out Friday afternoon instead of Thursday afternoon. I have not heard from him since he's been in Kuwait, so hopefully later today I'll know something. The waiting is the hardest part....but that's all I know for now...more to come later!

How to Post a Comment

I know a few of you have asked me how to post a comment on here, so here are some quick instructions:

1. Look at the bottom of any post and find the word that says “COMMENTS” and click on it. It is next to the “POSTED BY JENAE AND STEVEN AT xxxtime.”

2. Clicking on “COMMENTS” will open up a separate window that has the list of comments (if there are any) on the left and a box to write in on the right.

3. Type your comment in the box on the right.

4. “Choose an Identity” by selecting either the Name/URL, Open ID button, or Anonymous bullet. It will leave you a blank to write in your name if you choose.

5. Click the orange button “PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT” at the bottom and it will add your comment to the post and you should see it immediately in the column on the left!

At the top of that same page, you can go back to the blog by clicking “The Fundingsland Family.” Let me know if this was helpful!!

Update on Steven

As most of you know, Steven is on his way home for his 18 days of leave. He's been traveling since Monday...mostly waiting for his flights...but he now has a schedule. He leaves tomorrow morning his time to fly to Kuwait (that's tonight our time) and is expecting to be home Saturday or Sunday! Yay! I'm so excited I can hardly breathe...or sleep! I think it's a 14+ hour flight from Kuwait to Atlanta, so I'm sure he's going to be dead tired by the time he gets home...and much in need of a shower! :-) hahaa. 2 Days...I cannot wait!!!!

On the same note, I'm feeling so blessed to have so many wonderful things in my life right now. My girlfriends here have helped me not only pass the time quickly, but have truly given me happiness and peace while Steven's been gone. These women are some of the strongest, most amazing wives, mothers and friends I have ever known, and I thank God every day for bringing them into my life. Also, my boss has been completely understanding and flexible with Steven's time home. He does not even want me to come into the office, because he knows how precious this time together will be. Not many employers have that mentality and I am more than thankful for his generosity. Our families have also gone over the top to show their love and support for us and for Steven's service. The care packages sent, letters, prayers, and support have given us so much strength and we are so grateful. Thank you and God Bless you all!

Wreath Party

The Army Wives are together again...just like we are every week! We had a wreath making party last Saturday at Erin's house to get into the holiday spirit. Lots of us are traveling over the holidays and our husbands are either coming home for good or for R&R, so we wanted to make sure we got in some festivities before we were too busy! We had a good time and all the wreaths turned out great!
