Just Couldn't Stay Away

Just 1 post down it says I've left, and now here I am posting that I'm back. I'm back to my family blog. I miss blogging about my family, about my everyday adventures. I do not miss blogging about reviews and giveaways. Too stressful. I have way too much going on to worry about the next product to post about. I just want to blog about the stresses of having a new dog. The aggravation of having 2 kids still in diapers. I want to be able to post a couple cute pictures of my kids every now and then. So I've decided to nix the old fancy shmancy blog, and just post here. Where it all started. I like it here. I miss it here.

So what has been going on? This past summer, Rich deployed for 6 months. He left right before Josslyn's first birthday and returned right before Jacob's 3rd. Being without my better half for six loooong months was difficult but something I think we both needed. I know I did. I learned so much about myself. I learned that I could be a single parent, though I hope I never have to be, LOL.

Justyn started the 1st grade, lost 2 teeth, and learned how to give me attitude and roll his eyes. Yaaaaay!

Jacob started to talk more, eat less (didn't think that was even possible), and started to love his sister. Notice there wasn't anything about using the potty? Yea, that's because he won't.

Josslyn learned to walk, then run, then climb, the terrorize, all while eating everything in sight.

We spent a lot of time at the beach. What's the point of living in Florida if you aren't going to soak up the sun?!
Rich got home right before Thanksgiving. We had a lovely dinner at home, together, as a family.

Shortly after Rich's return he and I went to Georgia sans children and stayed in the most beautiful cabin. It was glorious, and a little scary. I couldn't imagine living in the mountains anymore. Those driveways are horrific.

We got a new puppy for the kids. She is (we think) a border collie/lab mix. She's so cute and soooo aggravating. The kids love her, but I am having a hard time with her chewing stuff. We are going to have to get wood flooring in our house because she's tracking dirt and mud on our carpet every time she comes in the house. Despite all the doggy chew toys she still feels the need to chew EVERYTHING. She is also unaware of her size and strength and how little my children are. She tries to jump on Josslyn and Jacob and knocks them down. I am thinking we may have to give her to another family that has the tolerance, because I clearly do not.

So that has been what's going on in our little family. I don't want to spill too much right now, because then what would I have to blog about? :0)
