What is on my mind lately..

Random blog alert

I have lots on my mind

I am worried about a lot of things and my anxiety is through the roof right now about our future and the future of some close friends of ours but here are some things I am excited for:

The Sun
I wish it was sunny outside. I have been really wanting to go on a nice long hike lately. Joe and I bought a hiking backpack a couple years ago, we have only used it a couple times. Oak Harbor is the perfect place to live in the summer for fun outdoor activities, we have the ocean we can literally walk to and many places to hike.

Getting back to my diet
I have been lacking on my workouts and dieting. I have even gained a couple pounds.. It's hard to lose weight when its cold outside. I do have a new gym I can go to but by the time Joe gets home I am so tired and I would rather just go to bed. I guess I could just take the kids to the gym, there is a children's play room but I am doubtful that my kids will actually play and let me workout. Maybe I will take them today and test it out. Today I am back to losing weight and working out.

Free movies
The movie theatre on base plays FREE double features every Saturday! This weekend they are playing kid movies. Brady has never been to an actual movie theater so we might take them this weekend and see how they like it...if they scream and cry we can just go home, it's not like we will be wasting money.

Joe's gets time off and Brooke gets kidnapped
Joe is taking some time off from March 29th to April 10th. The thought of him taking all those days off makes me very happy! My best friend Brooke is taking a road trip with her mom and kids to come visit her dad in Everett, I plan on kidnapping her and her cute kids because the truth is, I am obsessed with those people. I kinda joke to Joe all the time that if I was a fundamentalist Mormon Brooke would be my sister wife. I wish we could live together..I would probably have a clean and nicely decorated home. I love Joe more than anything but I think it would be nice to have a wife. I guess what I really want is maid, someone to do laundry and to clean up after my messy kids.

Sounders Game
Joe and I are planning on going to a sounders game next month with our new friends John and Barb Kidd, I can't wait, I love soccer and I really love the Sounders. I especially love military discount tickets!

Mariner game
Joe's family usually goes to at least one Mariner game a season. Joe can also get discount military tickets. Going to a mariner game is fun but the funnest part for me is being around family. We are going to get tickets for next month.

Easter is coming up and I want to see that new Easter movie.

Alright, time to get back to my never-ending pile of laundry!

St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day was really fun this year! We had corn beef roast with cabbage. Brady got to jump on a air mattress that was set up in our front room all day, that was really fun for him! Josh and Sam came over with baby Addy to eat with us. we also watched a couple movies. It was a fun night!

Welcome home letters

Joe's family decided to write Joe some welcome home letters. When I read them I knew I had to post them on my blog. They are just too cute and too funny not to.
My parents got him a signed picture of Lou Piniella, thanks!

I gave him a Ken Griffey Jr. playing card.

Here are all the letters Joe received:

Dear Joseph,
many great men who came before you received your name. One was a favored son and received a coat of many colors, despite his poor treatment at the hands of his brothers he became a great and respected leader. Josephus was a great historian. Joseph smith was the most favored servant of the lord and great prophet. We knew this history when we chose your name. We love you and are grateful for how you honor your name. love, Dad.

This one is from Matt. oops its upside down. sorry! It is a very funny letter!
Dear Colonel Joe,
Welcome home from a long boat ride on the USS Bush. Two boat rides and you are still not an Admiral. I don't want to say I'm disappointed, but I did have high hopes. Well, maybe next time. On a side note, how many times did you stand at the front of the boat with your arms outstretched exclaiming "I'm the king of the world"? C'mon, admit it; you know you wanted to! Anyway, welcome home! Matt.

A picture from Eathan with a really cool picture of the ship! good job Eathan!

A picture of the ship and a sun from Audrey! Very nice!

Julia drew a U.S. Navy ship with uncle Joe on the dock. Love It!

Anna drew a pretty rainbow!

Uncle Joe,
Thank you for keeping our bodies safe. good night. goodbye Joe! ok. Love Sam

Sydney drew a pretty picture of three stars! Sydney to:Joe

Ok so this is another bad picture. Sandy and her family wrote:

Dear Joe,
Charizard called. He wants his smoking hot good looks back. Now that you're home, you might want to call him back. -David

Wassup, Soja boy? -Joshua

Welcome home Joe! We love you! -Sandy and Rebekah

How was real-life black ops, Rambo? Jacob
Ha ha, you guys are funny!

Welcome home Fluff! You are our hero. thanks for your service to keep us safe. -Joy
Joy drew a very nice picture of sailor Joe with buff arms from sailor work. ha ha

Dear Joe,
We welcome you home. We thank you for your service! The snow flakes even welcomed you last wed night. Good grief -9" in Oak Harbor! we were all glad you made it home safely. I just didn't know how your plane would even be able to land! Welcome home! Love, Mom.

Dear Joe, We're glad you're home. It must have been hard to be away from your family that whole time. Thanks for defending our country and stuff, soldier. And were glad you still have both of your hands. Love, Morgan and Ashley
The picture is Buster with one hand and a welcome home Joe sign. good Job guys, this one was a big laugh with Joe. ha ha

Thank You Everyone for making Joe feel loved and missed!

Brady loves to pretend he's a baby. Silly Brady.

Brady has always been a really bad eater and I have always been worried about his weight. The past week or so he has been eating way more and I can totally see the pounds piling on. I can no longer see his ribs. Yay! Here is Brady boy eating his second plate of wheat pancakes for dinner. We love pancakes around here.

He wants to crawl

And I dont want him to. Maybe I'm lazy, ok I am totally lazy and I like to put Connor on the floor and know he will stay there. I'm not a fan of my babies growing up.

They are really starting to play together. Connor is always smiling and laughing at big brother. Brady.is such a good brother. He knows to be gentle to "Hi" thats what he calls Connor because he can't say his name yet. My sister and I used to call each other "Why" and "bye" instead of mallory and mandy. I think its funny that Brady and Connor might have nicknames too.
