Catch up Time!!

So I have been really slacking on keeping this updated. Since the last entry, Ben has graduated from Basic Training and Airborne school. He jumped 5 times and loved it. After that he went to another school and is now in his MOS school. (Occupation school) The girls and I moved out of Ben's parent's house into an apartment in Moreno Valley. We are enjoying our own place again. Cozette turned 3 on October 4th. Ben came home for 10 days at the end of October and beginning of November. Shyanne turned 1 on November 6th. We had a Mad Hatter's Tea party for both of them. It was a lot of fun. Ben left on the 11th. He will be back for christmas break on Dec. 18th. He will then go back for 6 to 8 weeks and then we will all move to Florida. It was supossed to be North Carolina but his MOS changed. We are all excited for what the future is going to bring us.

Ben's Basic Training

Ben has been at Basic Training since March 16th. He has been doing really well on his tests and has been learning a lot. He has learned to shoot at an expert level, throw granades, rocket launcher and much more. He has done several road marches with 85lbs of weight added to him. We are very proud of him and all that he is accomplishing. His graduation is on July 2nd. The girls and his mom and I are going out to Georgia to see him graduate. I am really excited. Here are some of the pictures his Master Seargent has posted for us.

He will then go to Fort Bragg in North Carolina and do his training for Special Forces. When he goes there, the girls and I will move out there with him. We are very excited for the new changes coming up! Good Luck Ben!

Shyanne Rose McPherson

I guess it is time I updated this. Shyanne was born on November 6th. She weighed 8lbs 8oz and was 20 inches long. She looks a lot like me and has Mel's strawberry blond hair. her eyes are blue grey right now, but so were Cozette's and they changed to hazel. We will see. She is a very good baby. She sleeps a lot and hardly cries. It is a nice change of pace. We love havng her sweet spirit in our home.

3 more Weeks!

I can't believe how time has flown by. I have only 3 more weeks left till little Shyanne joins our family. We are so excited for her to join us. Cozette is going to be a good big sister. We thought that she might be mean, but as time has gone by, she has calmed down a lot. She is still rough, but she loves to look at other babies and touch their little feet and hands. I will try and keep everyone updated on what is going on.

Beach Time!

Cozette and I went to the Beach with my friend Jen. Cozette has been afraid of the water the past few times we have gone to the beach. This time she finally got used to it by the end of the trip. We had a lot of fun. Cozette even got to fly a kite that a nice lady had.
