Wow...I miss my husband and blogging.

Derek has been gone since last Tuesday and it has been a LONG week without him. This is the longest we have ever been apart from each other (and the longest he has been away from Stratton). I know all those military wives out there are probably scoffing as they're reading this...but I'm not a military wife.
Since he's been gone I've been trying to stay busy.

I started a t-shirt quilt for Derek two weeks ago and I FINALLY finished it. 
Here is the first picture I took of it. 
It doesn't have the back on it and the border hasn't been added in this picture.
I don't want to post any new pictures until Derek gets home tomorrow.
I want him to be able to see it in person before he sees it online.

I've also been doing A LOT of laundry trying to get it all caught up for when Derek gets home.
Stratton has been helping me with laundry. He is such a big help.

Stratton has also been my little snuggle buddy at night since Derek's side of the bed has been empty.
I know this will probably come back to bite me in the butt when Derek gets back home and he still wants to sleep in bed with me. How can you not want to wake up to THIS every morning...

I forgot my mom gave us a gingerbread house for the Christmas holiday.
Well I found it and Stratton wanted to decorate the "cake" so we decorated it.
It was such a mess but it was SO much fun!
I think we ate more of the candy then we actually put on the "cake".
Here is how it turned out.
 Here he is eating the candy that was supposed to be going on the gingerbread house.
 Here is the final product! The left side is Stratton's and the right side is mine.
I love it...even if it was made a month later than it was supposed to be made.

Emily I wish I had known Derek was gone because Daniel was gone all last week too! I let JD sleep with me while he was gone and now that Daddy's back JD won't sleep in his good luck getting Stratton back in his bed! lol! Also, great job on the quilt!

I was scared to post anything about him being gone! I'm so paranoid about someone breaking into my house I didn't want to post it on my blog. Haha. We need to get together soon. Are you taking classes this semester? I have two for this semester. Let me know when you're free so we can go get dinner or lunch one day
