since you been home...

there's a few things i've noticed since you've been home.

*i missed you more than i thought i did.

*the kids REALLY love having you around and want your attention at all times.

*we do much more fun things when you are around (like bbq's and smores)

*i've missed you

*katie absolutely loves her daddy.

*i've laughed more in the past few days than in the last 7 months.

*you are the hardest worker i know (since you been home you've already put in new counter tops, mowed the yards, cleaned out the garage, and are currently painting my kitchen cabinets)

*i'm pretty damn lucky to of married you

*you make me want to be a better person

*did i already mention that i've missed you?

What a great post. I still don't know how you do it with him gone all the time. Your my hero. Can't wait to see your kitchen redo. YOU BETTER POST IT!!! Sounds like he is keeping up with his honey do list. Enjoy him while he's home!

Ps. He's handy and good looking. It's no wonder you have such cute kids. Look at you two!! :)

Fleming Family said...

Enjoy being a full family as much as possible!!!!!! I was reading one of your old posts about your conversation with Jake about "comments" and reassure him that you do know some of the people in real life that visit your blog and that we love hearing how everyone is doing. :)

My goodness this guy has a killer smile! And he works around the house too? He's a keeper! blessings, marlene

Nash said...

So, how much longer does he have until he's all done?
You guys are the most adorable couple. I think i even sorta have a crush, he's cute and does "honey-do's". (Oh I hope that didn't come across weird) I mean he reminds me of my husband, but we aren't quite as cute as you two.
And did I ever mention how much I love it when someone says Damn on their blog. Makes me laugh everytime. I actually took it off once when I realized my VT reads mine, but then I thought, WHo cares? Sometimes I say it...and it feels GoOD!
So happy for you. BTW, didn't make it up this time. We might shoot for beginning of october, though I might have to drive home alone with the kids.

Great, great post. You are a sweet couple.
I can tell you when he leaves this time it will be harder than the first. I remember.
However, when he comes back home it will be for good.
I hope the rest of your days are filled to the rim with fun and laughter.

V and Co. said...

haha i make myself cry too. sorry ladies he's mine but you are welcome to gauk at him and tell him how cute he is he loves it and smirks everytime i tell him, and then he goes and does more "work around the house" with a smile...so keep the motivation going! :)

Mindy said...

Aww, V! Now you've gone and made me cry! I'm so glad you could have some time together, and I pray that the rest of your time apart goes by quickly.

I've always said he and Jarrod are the most handsome men out there! Jake shaved! Last I saw a picture he was looking a little burly. I'm glad you are enjoying your time together and getting so much done! You'll be able to look around when he's away and remember how much he loves you.

Emotional post V! My brother just left to do his training for the Navy, and has a wife and 2 yr old. It's sad for those sitting at home, but we sure are lucky to have all those brave military!!!!!!
