Only being in our new place for a week, I tried to have as most Christmas Spirit as I could. We didn't have any Christmas Shopping done, which we still don't.....Anyways, this was a very chill Christmas, it was much needed to be that way. Most of our money was spent on the move, so we didn't do anything big. Luke and I got Eli, I mean Santa got Eli a "little tikes, Basketball Hoop." Which he loves!!! Christmas Eve we had the pleasure to have a nice chat with both sides of the family. My parents surprised the Family by publishing there first Children's Book called "Coral Cove and Rudy's Big Discovery." So that was fun too know, and there are also planning on finishing 3 or 4 more children's books by the end of next year. WOW! GO MOM AND DAD!!! Whoohoo!!! We also all three of us made Christmas Cookies, Eli loved putting sprinkle on the sugar cookies.
Christmas morning we all slept in till after ten, then I couldn't take it anymore, I woke everyone up. I was too excited! Eli had a ball putting the basketball in the hoop. Loved it! Also, it took him a little bit to figure out opening presents, first he just carried about the ribbon then the present, then he figured out that there are cool presents under the ribbon and paper. He had so much fun opening everyone's presents. Haha!
And I would like to say thanks to Nana and Papa, and Grandma and Grandpa for our wonderful presents. We enjoyed everyone of them! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!! Here are a few pictures of that day. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Love ya!
For all of those who do not know yet, we were scheduled to move to Fort Hood, Tx, and a week before the big move the army told us that we were moving to Fort Campbell, Ky. So it was a nice stressful time changing all of our plans with in the few days.
Also the week we were moving a nice funny/horrible story happened, Luke was destroying our personal records in the grill in the backyard one day we were packing. Later that day we decided to give our grill to our neighbors, so Luke emptied the pile of charcoal and paper from the grill into our city garbage can. Do know that it was not lite at the time. Much later that night we decided to run to the store for cleaning supplies, Luke noticed as we were leaving that the trash can was smoking, so he drowned the trash can with water, and put it in the backyard. As we were shopping at Target we got a call from our neighbor asking if we were home, and told us that our backyard was on fire. In conclusion to this nightmare of a story, we came home to a some nice firemen who had just put out the fire in our backyard. What happened was the trash can was on fire and melted completely to the ground. Put a nice whole in the backyard. Awful!!!! If Luke did not put the trash can in the backyard then our whole house would of ended up in flames. What a blessing that was.
Anyways, the move went really well. We moved a whole 3 hours away. Stayed in a stinky hotel for 3-4 nights. Was lucky enough to find a home rather quickly. It is a nice 3 bedroom / 2 Bathroom townhome. For those of you who don't know, Fort Campbell is right on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee. So we live on the Tennessee side. It is a different place for us. And it is going to take a little bit for us to get used too.
Luke has been off of work for the last 2 1/2 weeks. Which Eli and I have really enjoyed having him around teasing us all the time. In the end, it was a very Stressful but Successful move.
Well first of all I want to say how proud I am of Luke. He is an amazing father, husband and provider for our family. He graduated with a 93%, he was always one of the top of his class. He did not enjoy school so much, found it really boring most of the time. But he stuck with it and he did it! I love you honey and I am so proud of you. Here are a few videos and pictures of that day...
Luke after Graduation. Made everyone stand out in the freezing cold for like 20 minutes. I am not sure why!?.

So another post... I wanted to post some cute stuff about Eli. I am enjoying every minute I have with him. He is really just turning out just like Luke. He is so funny, he loves just to make you laugh and at the same time loves to love you. Elijah loves little babies and tries to take care of them."SO CUTE!" He does point at my tummy and says "Baby Baby Baby Baby." I am sure he doesn't really know what it means, but he only does it to me, I think maybe in some way he really does kind of know what is going on. He is really going to be a great older brother.
Also he is very tall, he can reach on top of any counter, and is basically a little mess.
Well, all I want to say is, I am very greatful for my little Eli. What a joy he is to me in such a chaotic world. He makes my day every day just to be with him. I can't wait for this next little being, Luke and I are bringing into this world. And am excited to see Eli become older brother.
My sweet Husband!
So on to further news... We have finally found out where we are moving... Fort Campbell,Ky! And we are just excited that we are finally able to know where we are moving. We move this Friday the 11th, so we have alot of packing to do. Luke of course will be moving most of the stuff. We won't find out what we are having until probable the end of December or sometime in January. Luke and I are pretty positive it is a girl, but would be very happy with either or. Well I have to get to packing, so hope all is well. I will post a few more pictures before I go.

In case you have all been wondering... Eli and I are driving down to Alabama starting on the 16th of this month. We have not been approved to live on base yet, but will be hopefully next week. If not we will get an apartment right off base somewhere, but Luke and I are thinking we shouldn't have any problems. Also I will not be driving to Alabama alone, my parents have been ever so generous to help get me down there safe and sound. Well hope you enjoy the rest of the blogs. Hope to talk to you sooner the later! Peace!
This is Daddy with little Eli! Standing in front of my favorite rental car EVER! A Saturn Vue. Have never been a fan of Saturn's, but this one is Bad A!
All the soldiers had to stand in formation, while there Drill Sargent's yelled at them for something. Don't know what, I can't even understand half the things they said. But there is my favorite Soldier Pvt Luke Park.

Its finally 30 days... Yes 30 Days till I can see my man and Eli can see his father! And I am so excited. Yes everyone I did talk to him today! He is doing well... More then half way thru and am so proud of him. He past his rifel range shooting and will be getting an award for "THE SHARP SHOOTER", he also passed his second PT TEST. So one more PT TEST and he is home free. Well he told me a couple of fun stories: First; They were learning there IUD shooting ( don't know what that stands for) it is where you are in a jeep and a ground bomb goes off, so they have to quickly get out and move into the forest and start shooting at the enemy. Pretty cool, huh?! As they were running into the trees, the guy in front of him accidently snaped a branch into his eye. So his eye is all cut up and everyone thinks he has pink eye. He is fine and will be going to sick all tomorrow to get it checked out. Now second, I don't really remember the second.... Sorry! But overall he is doing really well.... And it looks like Eli and I will be moving to Alabama in June. It is not final yet, but the chances are very good. Luke won't find out until the first week he is there. So I will let you know as soon as I know. Well hope ya'll are well. Peace!

How could this day be any better... First off I got to listen to our great prophets and apostles and great leaders of our church. Always great to hear there wisdom and counsel. Second I got to talk to Luke for like 30 minutes. I haven't talked to him in two weeks. So it was really nice to talk to him. Luke is doing really well... I just want to mention, wife's are ALWAYS right. Before Luke left he had a hang nail on his big toe that was all infected and stuff. I told him to go to the doctor and get it looked at before he left. So he goes, says his foot was still the same and someone stepped on his toe, so he ended up going to th hospital, doctors numbed his toe and removed half his toe nail. Ha Ha! My poor Luke! Maybe he will learn his lesson one day. But really he is doing awesome, said he went through the gas chambers yesterday, didn't like that much. He doesn't really mind it, just misses Eli and I! Well folks... That is all I got for now! See Ya!

Luke is doing really well... Loves the physical part, and says all around it isn't so bad. He just says he can't stand alot of the people there. He had a great experience at church on sunday. And was able to get a blessing from the missionarys. There is a wonderful couple missionary who I have talked too, they sure are a blessing. They have been helping Luke out alot. Well hope all is well. Peace out! lol

Sorry haven't updated in a while... Luke is officially in the army! We are very excited and ready to get this boot camp and training over with. Luke is in reception right now and doesn't officially start basic till Friday, March 20th. He is pretty excited and I think really liking it. He was home sick for the first couple of days. But now is getting used to being away. Luke really misses Eli and is really sad to miss his first year. Good News though, we found out that when Luke goes to AIT, I will be able to visit him on the weekends. So I figure I will go visit him every other week or so. Well that is the plan anyways. SO.. To sum it up Luke is doing really well, getting to know the army life. Don't have any addresses yet but will post it when I find out. Which he says he will find out the first day of boot camp. So wish him luck. Hope you are all well. Eli and I are doing GREAT! Well.. as good as we can be!
