Busy Busy Busy

Wow, it's been a busy couple of days around here, I haven't had much time to blog or post any new pictures but I guess it's about time I get caught up now. Earlier in the week Alex went to a program at the library where the kids made their own herb garden and he was so proud of what he brought home. I was really impressed with the fact that they actually had plants and not just seeds for the kids to bring home. We put it in the sun and watered it and then we watered our tomato plants, we have about 25 tomatoes at last count now if some of them would just start to ripen up I would be a very happy gardener.

Yesterday Robert came home for a much anticipated visit before his next tour of duty overseas and we picked him up at the airport and within about 1/2 hour he was already out with friends, he is like a magnet...they all know he's home and the doorbell isn't quiet for too long once we walk in the door. I was happy to see him sleeping comfortably in his bed this morning when I woke up.

After getting myself out the door it was time for a trip to the DMV (groannnnnn!!) to register Jesse's very first car and boy is he excited to finally have his own set of wheels and of course as I type this it is late and he isn't home...knew that was going to happen. HAHAHA!

Tonight for dinner I made a feast fit for hungry boys, even Alex ate 3 chicken cutlets. I made a ton of food and it was pretty much all gone by the time these boys were finished and got up from the table. Robert's best friend, Tommy, is deploying soon too and I had invited him to join us for dinner tonight so that was nice.
