We are heading into the second week of January and I couldn't be more excited! The holidays are over and that means it's almost time for my hubby to come home!! This deployment has gone by relatively quickly, however I am so past the point of being ready to be home and together. I am desperately awaiting the day that my hubby walks off the plane and into our home again. On January 13th, he will have been gone for 6 months. As for his homecoming, I can't give many details because of OPSEC (operational security), but I can say that he's mostly packed and ready to go and he will be home by this time next month! This little guy is pretty excited too... can't you tell?! I'm not sure he really has any idea what's going on! Ha!

We actually got to talk to hubs today WITH VIDEO! It's been weeks since Jax has been able to see his daddy. The internet over there is very slow and with lots of people using it, Skype/GChat hardly ever works. But today it worked for 30 minutes! Jax was showing his daddy his "uck" (truck) and "tacto" (tractor) book. He was showing him his piano and playing songs for him. He was showing him his animal book and saying all his animal sounds. He has grown so much over the past 6 months and I know hubs is gonna have a blast seeing all the fun things Jax does. I can't wait to see it through his eyes.

As this deployment comes to an end, I am so thankful for all of you who have been praying for our family. These last 6 months have not always been easy, but we've gotten through them... and that is in part because of your love and support. Thank you for your continued prayers as hubs gets ready to head home and we transition back into our "real" life. It'll be here before we know it!
