Nathan and I before our big night out. This was the first formal ball either one of us had been to. It was alot of fun to get all dressed up and have a night off from mommy/daddy duties. My friend Meghan watched Ariana for us, so she got to have a fun night of playing with her little friend, Faith while Mommy and Daddy were gone.
We didn't end up staying for the whole evening, but left around 9:30- 10:00. It was quite the evening- from live music, toasts, dinner, guest speakers, skits, the ceremony of making the punch and a few other things...We did have to go through a receiving line and shake hands with some Sgt's Major and Colonel's. I got a very nice compliment from Colonel Haight on the necklace I was wearing, which happened to be the rubies Nathan got me for Christmas from Afghanistan.
My new haircut- the shortest it has been in over 13 years! I love it and it feels chic and fun!
About Our Family...
- We are a family who was birthed through God's incredible goodness- joining our hearts and lives in a way we call miraculous. Nathan and I were married April 11,2009, which just happened to be one of the most perfect days in our lives. Ariana is our beautiful, two year old daughter, that we thank God for every day. She brings so much joy to our lives and delight to our hearts. Landon joined us six months ago. He was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery at three months of age. We are so grateful for his speedy healing and this happy, healthy baby boy! We are an Army family- this is Nathans' thirteenth year serving our country. We recently moved across the country and are loving the life God has blessed us with. Our life is simple, but its beautiful to us and I pray that you are blessed by the beauty that we find in it.
