A Month In Pictures | January 2012

Month In Pictures January blog

We enjoyed having Jerome and Noah's Send Off party at the local American Legion.
I danced with my husband to our song at the party.
We laughed and we cried.
We were happy to have friends from far away stay, Jerome enjoyed catching up and talking about old USS Hayler days.
We clapped our hands and smiled at the wonderful toast their friend Alex made.
We spent a night out on the town with friends.
Natalie enjoyed her daddy daughter date to Blackhawke Grille with her daddy.
Spencer enjoyed one last paintball trip in the cold weather with his dad.
Katie enjoyed her daddy daughter date and went bowling with her daddy.
We spent a whole day at the Reserve Center waiting on papers and processing for Jerome to be completed.
We got new military I.D.'s
We enjoyed a nice dinner and our last date night for a long time.
We watched him pack his things.
We spent time with family and friends at the airport.
We gave hugs, lots of hugs and kisses to him.
We cried.
He held each of our kids as they cried and said goodbye.
We cried.
I walked through security with him and gave him a long kiss goodbye.
I watched him as he had to turn and walk away.
I cried.
We came home to a home without him.
We made it through a week of what seemed like a deployment curse.
We made it through.
We celebrated on February 1st by going to dinner, hoping that he will be here this time next year.
We learned to live with just the four of us at home.
We miss him.
