T'was the night before the night before Christmas...

Well Kaylin's had her 4 month shots and check up. My baby weighs a whopping 14 pounds 1 ounce! Almost doubled her birth weight!!! And I thought she was a chunky thing. Guess she's perfect all around. Doctor even said she thinks she's a few months ahead in motor development, definitely makes me a proud mama! I can't believe how big she's gotten, in just a few months time. She hardly fits into her 0-3 month Gerber clothes. Wow, how time flies. I can't believe in just a few short months she will be a whole 6 months old, and Dennis will be heading off to the "great" sandbox.

This Christmas is definitely a bittersweet one for me. On one hand I am so excited for Christmas to come. I can't wait to see the look on Kaylin's face when she sees the toys and clothes. And I can't wait to see the look on Dennis' face when he see's what all he's gotten. He has no clue on a lot of stuff this year, especially because he's been gone. But on the other hand I'm sad because this is the last "major" holiday before this deployment. We have our anniversary and New Year's but Christmas is like it. Part of me wants to just say, "bring it on, Army!" Then the other part wants my husband to stay here safely beside me. I guess the only positive thing about this deployment will be the chance to get out of debt. I can't wait until we can not have to worry about all this crazy debt on our shoulders. It'll be so nice to only have school loans to stress over. At least, that is my goal by the end of this deployment. Oh and of course the getting out of Germany thing we'll be doing once he gets back. Out of this hell hole, out of this world. Don't get me wrong, we like Germany but we hate Baumholder. 2 stop lights, a down town full of strip clubs and over priced everything kinda makes life tougher here. I sorta wish we got stationed here earlier when the Deutche marks were still around. We would have loved it here, so easy to travel!

Hmmm, Dennis is in there playing Black Ops yelling at his friends. Maybe its time to make him turn off the Xbox and watch a movie with me. :D
