Jason and Connor having fun around the fire

Hello Everyone! I just wanted to give you all an update with what's been going on with me the last couple weeks. ... My husband came home for R&R on Dec 21st after being deployed for a long 7 1/2 months. And since then, we have been enjoying our family time so very much. I cannot even express how very wonderful it has been to have him home over the holidays, heck, to just to have him home! Needless to say, my craft table has been feeling very neglected and lonely, but I am sure there is some understanding there.
Unfortunately, R&R is only a short 15 days, and my husband has to go back to Iraq this Wednesday morning. This being our fourth combat tour, I should be used to sending my husband to Iraq - again - but, honestly, my heart is breaking that he has to leave again. I am trying to focus on the fact that once he gets back, we only have 3-4 months until this deployment is over.
I know after I take my husband back to the airport, I will once again, find comfort in my stamps, designer paper and my new prismacolor pencils (thank you my BFF Cassie!) and I will be back in the swing of things getting back to my favorite challenges like the Clearly Inspired Challenge and designing for The Color Dare.
Until then, Happy Crafting! I will see you all soon!

I am so glad that Jason got to come home for R&R! The next 3-4 months will fly by!

Haha, this is such a cute picture. Connor looks adorable, and Jason looks like Jason, hehe. Enjoy the last few days of r&r, and know that you are loved and prayed for. Wish I was flying to TX rather than GA on Wednesday morning.
