A little Air Force update and A Photo A day 365: Day 43

Well, Mr. Sir is officially in Europe, we are stationed in Europe for the next 3 years!

Due to some passport issues (and me not knowing what was going on) I am staying here in the states for another month. But that just means that I can putz, pack, and purge some more before the big move. Also, it means that Mr. Sir can get everything all ready for us when we get there. Am I excited? That would be a big YES! It is getting closer!

Tonight was the first night in a long time that I had a convenience meal. I ordered pizza from the local gas station, and acted all American by driving the 3 blocks away to go pick it up and then promptly eating the whole thing minus the one slice James ate. It was totally worth it.

A Photo A Day, 365: Days 30-42

 Coupled with a week of being quite busy and not liking the time which it takes to post a picture from my phone and also the next week of Mr. Sir being home (!!) I got about 13 days behind in my photo a day, I DID remember to take the pictures, just not post them. I do have pictures of Mr. Sir too but most of those ended up on his phone, which I don't have. Darn. So, I just have to use my pictures instead. So, this is me catching up from my crazy weeks. Also, if you can't tell.  James is usually the focal point of my day.
Day 30, at his great grandparents grave.

Day 31, My parent's lab.

Day 32, Apples at grandpa's house are the best!

Day 33, swinging selfie.
Day 34, kicking back at home with his toy's

Day's 16,17,18 and 19: A Photo A Day 365

Unfortunately I got a few days behind in my 365. I remembered to take the pictures, but little James ended up in the hospital due to a respiratory virus. We were there for about 2 1/2 days. He is doing much better now, home and happy. Though I should mention that he never really lost his energy, and it got interesting being cooped up in a hospital room.

Day 16
James getting some much needed rest.

Day 17
Burning off energy.

Day 18
Home again, home again, jiggity jig. James getting his nebulizer treatment.

Day 19
A day of getting stuff done. Mending the air mattress.... check!

Day 15: A Photo a Day 365

Naptime productivity, start to finish.

Upcycled Baby Jeans

 I made these jeans out of a pair of Mr. Sir's old work pants. Mr. Sir's pants had a rip in the crotch and that is almost impossible to thoroughly mend. So I cut them up for these cute little pants. I did a little bit of embroidery on them and added embellishments. The fabric inserts were supposed to be pockets but I messed up the pattern so now they are just decorative panels. There are also black suspender straps but they blend in with his black shirt really well. They are too big on James right now because I made them a 2T for him to grow into. He is only a year and a half right now.

A Visit

 James and I hopped on the plane to California to visit Mr. Sir this past weekend. It was a really nice trip with hikes, seafood, parks, the beach and just hanging out. Here is a picture montage from our visit.

The beach.

A short hike.

Looking over the harbor from a scenic viewpoint.

James checking out the boats.

He loved the dolphin. It was the perfect size for him.
