Looking for your favorite photos!
Photos … They take us back in time. A memory of a baby being born, a laugh from a family reunion, a smile of grandparents we miss dearly. Some of my favorite photos are from my husband’s homecoming from Iraq. Oh how we missed him. Oh how happy we were to have him home! Do you have favorite military-family photos? You can now upload them to our MilitaryAvenue Facebook Fan page. We’d love to see them, to have you share them. We would love to use them on MilitaryAvenue, to show the military’s surrounding communities who our true-heroes are. In the future I will compile all of our facebook-friends’ submitted…

I’m feeling *very* fortunate. I have my boys tucked into bed and my feet are up for the evening. *E*, 6 years old is already snoring softly in dream world. *C*, 3 years old, is turning his little-lamp by his bed on and off, on and off, on and off. He is trying. This is what happens when he takes a nap during the day … bedtime comes and he has no interest in sleep. Who can blame him. But this Mommy craves… desires… NEEDS her “quiet time” as I refer to it after 8:00pm. So in spite of naps he still has to stay in his room till he…
Is it April yet?
Is it April yet? *Hubby* will be home for good in April. He told me the guys he is with are all getting antsy. They are a little bit “short” with each other, patience is way down and they aren’t exactly “being all they can be”. I think they are ready to get home too! As for me I am READY! He’s been a little short with me too on our nightly web-cam calls. Not in a mean way, just in a ‘bleh… this web cam is getting old & I’d much rather kiss your face goodnight then stare towards the computer at you’ kind-of-way. I’m with him on that.…

Music to my ears
I come from a musically-inclined family. Probably not what you are thinking, though. In fact, I remember one of the funniest jokes my mom ever told: “I can play all kinds of music; on the radio, on the record player, on the tape deck.” Ok, I was young… I thought it was really funny at the time. 🙂 Our family made QUITE A FEW PCS’s over the years and what was the first thing that was set-up in each new house after the movers came and went? (I think even before the beds!): The stereo. I remember Dad getting all the wires set up, getting the speakers in place and…
‘Build A Sign’ offering free Homecoming Banners
Do you have a loved one coming home from deployment soon? Hubby is not coming home for quite a while (sigh…) but I just ordered a ‘free banner’ for his arrival. (YAY!) 🙂 “Build A Sign is proud to offer free 3′ by 6′ banners to celebrate the homecoming of your family member or friend from service overseas: http://www.buildasign.com/Troops.” In all actuality it did cost me $11 because they do charge for shipping, but I certainly won’t complain! It appears that it will be a nice banner & I look forward to receiving it, and more importantly hanging it when the time comes. – Leanne from MilitaryAvenue.combyLeanneonFriday, July 11, 2008Email…
