According to Creating Keepsakes, I have another daughter. I promise that I don’t! Meet Alex, my neighbor’s daughter and my little model for the project I made for the December issue. Isn’t she a cutie? hehe.
Also, I want to add something big that happened in our life today and yesterday. Yesterday, Chris put on his Army boots for the very last time. Today he officially began his terminal leave, meaning that he has off from now until January 15th. I think I took all of this harder than he did; I felt guilty that he did it all for me. After a ton of reassuring, he promises that he did it for all of us. This was something we prepared for for many years; we knew that we didn’t want to be moving the kids around once they hit school-age, but it still didn’t make this week any easier.
So, in other words, it seems that today is the first day of a new way of living for the Odie’s. (oh, and those organizational supplies came in, too! Looks like I have something to work on this weekend. eek.)
