We will miss you Clarksville!

To all of our wonderful friends in Clarksville:
Words cannot express how much you all mean to us. You have been such incredible friends over these past 3 and a half years. You have seen us through 4 deployments, 1 (almost 2) babies, and many, many other lives moments. Ian has grown to know you all as his extended family and we are so blessed to have this while our own families are so far away.

To our Grace Family:
WOW! What an incredible thing God is doing through the hard work and prayers of you wonderful people! We cannot wait to come back and continue to see His work begin done! Thank you for the opportunity to serve along with you:)

Please know this is not goodbye but so long for now. Please come and visit us in DC. We would love to see you. If you did not get our contact info please post a comment and we will send it to you via email.

Joe, Tammy, Ian and kick kick from Abbie Grace

Easter 2006

Ian's second Easter was quite a treat! He came down the stairs Easter morning and was fixated on his basket. He honed in on a chocolate bunny and the rest is history! He was so engrossed in his bunny he didn't care what else was in the basket:) After Church we had come friends over for dinner and an Easter egg hunt. Once Ian and Dylan found out there was candy in the eggs they were really excited! What a wonderful day celebrating our risen Savior!

Ian's Second Birthday

Today was Ian's second birthday! It is so hard to beleive! I think I am just as tired today as I was the day he was born. He had a birthday party at school complete with a Nemo and Dory cake. After that he came home and we ran him around a bit to burn off some sugar! Next, it was time for Chuck E Cheese...he ran and ran and ran for 2 hours from game to ride and then back again. We all had so much fun though. When we left Chuck E Cheese it was off to Toys R Us to get Ian his first tricycle. We were going to wait until after we moved but decided to go ahead and get it here. What's one more thing for the movers to move, huh?

He is such a sweet little boy and we have been so blessed these past two years. The joy and laughter he brings with each day is priceless! Soon we will have double the pleasure when Miss Abbie Grace comes along!

28 Weeks

Yes, that's right, I am now 28 weeks! Little Abbie Grace will be born in 10 weeks! Can you believe it?? There is much to do before the little one arrives though....moving being the biggest! We have started reading some big brother books to Ian and stopped referring to Abbie Grace as the baby and by name. Hopefully this will help with the transition. Joe thinks Ian will adjust without any problems and hopefully he is right! He will have grandparents and family around spoiling him while I am in the hospital since Joe will be away in training. Abbie Grace will also have a very special gift for Ian when he comes to meet her:)

Spring Has Sprung!

YAY! We have had 4 days of beautiful weather! Last night there were really bad storms but so far it doesn't look like we had any damage. Ian has his first new summer outfit on's a 3T! Yikes when did he get so big?!?!?

Things are progressing well with preparing for the move. We had a successful garage sale this weekend and got rid of all of the extra furniture we had. Ian is moving into a big boy bed when we move so any of you coming to visit will get to sleep under his new Trucks bedding! He will have a twin over full bunk bed for his new room.
