On the way to Greece…

Here are some pictures from the cruise as we made our way to Greece from Italy.  We stopped in Athens.  I enjoyed some of what we saw there but it let me down overall.  Next time I go to Greece I want to see something else, like the islands.  It also was the only place we had rain so I think that had something to do with it too.

A Day in Barcelona

Our cruise left from the port in Barcelona.  We got there a day early flying in from Munich.   We got to spend some time walking around the city.  We were in such a beautiful part of the city.  We stayed at the Petit Palace Museum in the Las Ramblas area.  We had one of their family rooms which was perfect for us.

My husband has been home for a whole month now!  Crazy.  It went by SO fast.  We have been having great fun and he starts his block leave soon too.  It has been so nice to have someone else to help with the boys.

Christmas in Bavaria

Christmas is Coming!!! Here we go again! Another Christmas season in Bavaria. This will mark my 4th and last Christmas season in Germany.

This year I plan to enjoy some Christmas markets: And hopefully have a White Christmas: I have never had a white Christmas. Even though it snowed like crazy last year, we had no snow for Christmas. Maybe just maybe this is the year 🙂 My ideal Christmas Eve is to put my boys to bed & then watch the snow fall …

Another Military Homecoming

military homecoming

As I am getting ready for Homecoming 2009 I can’t help but think back to Homecoming 2007.  It was a 15-month deployment and it was 11 months between R&R; and Homecoming.  This time seems so different since I just saw him in August.  The whole Homecoming thing is really cool…once you get that phone call of where you need to be. All the waiting until the Military homecoming just plain old sucks.  But it is worth it. You get to the gym (or wherever you are supposed to be) and you wait.  You wait.  And you wait some more. And …
