Dress Up

Ashden came out of our bedroom tonight dressed like this!  I just had to laugh, and then all of the kids wanted in on the fun.  They raided Ryan's freshly cleaned and organized closet for a bunch of his clothes.  I snapped a few pictures that I thought Ryan would enjoy.  You don't realize how big he really is until the boys tried to put on his clothes, it made for a fun night!

All in all we are adjusting quite well to the absence of daddy.  I say that on day two, and still being able to talk a few times a day.  I will have to post again next week, once the reality of his eight months of training has sunk in.  For now, he is on a bus with hundreds of others, headed to South Carolina from Atlanta.  He has already made a friend who is 'old' too, and is headed to Arizona with him after his training in S.C.  I think he was pleasantly surprised at how many over thirty men there were, he won't be the only old guy after all!

As you can see, Adeline preferred to just play dress up with mommy's shoes!


This is how I found Ashden asleep, what you can't see is that under the pants are underwear and socks pulled all the way up his leg.  That boy is going to miss his daddy a ton.

Super cute photos! I'm impressed the kids could move around in those clothes.

Wow, Ashy sure crashed. That is so funny that your kids were putting Ryan's clothes on. This last week our boys have been putting their dad's shirts on to wrestle.
I am glad things are going well. You are one tough cookie.

That is so cute! I'm glad you're all settling in okay. Let me know if you need anything!

I love those pockets of laughter that our kids create. Sure helps get through the crazy moments that seem to be the majority! I love Ashy just asleep on the till you drop = ).

Robert met a and "old" friend on his first day too, and they went through basic, AIT, and then Airborne together and are now super close friends still. He even baptized him during basic training. I feel that was a blessing from Heavenly Father to strengthen both of them. It will help Ryan so much cause that bond will help them deal with the stupid stunts the younger guys pull. Makes me so happy to hear that!!!!!
