Hello All...

So this is my first blog in about one hundred years. It has been over 5 months since I have posted anything. So much has happened. Well Willie came home for leave and it was great. It was so wonderful to have him home again and it was for a whole month so we were able to spend a lot of time together. During the time Willie was home we went to Florida and visited our family there. It's always fun to go down there to see everyone. I especially enjoy my conversations with Willie's grandmother Eleanor. She has so much history and wisdom. She is just such a great example of charity and service. I just love her to bits.

We had the boys while we were in Florida so that was really great too. I love it when we are all together as a family. It just makes me feel so blessed to be able to have all of our kids in our lives. What a special role we have as parents. It can be overwhelming at times but I know with guidance from our Heavenly Father my short comings will improve and hopefully won't impact the kids too badly.

I realize I didn't post anything about Victoria's birthday. Well we had a cake. It was strawberry with lemon frosting. (Victoria choose :)) Willie was able to watch presents being open via webcam. (So yeah Victoria's birthday is Jan 11th so this happened before he came home for Leave)

While we were in Florida we had a little birthday party for Victoria at Chuck E Cheeses. That was lots of fun and easy because I didn't have to do anything except pay the cashier hahahaha.

Victoria's party was great fun. There Chocolate cake was so yummy and moist. I will update more later.
