I bub ooo!

Oh, my little Hudsie. He has the most charming personality I've ever seen. The differences in Clayton and Hudson are pretty overwhelming -- they were raised by the same parents, but they're so different.

Clayton is, what we lovingly referred to as, the hard-headed, strong-willed type. He knew what he wanted, and he was going to get it. As a toddler, he had a permanent bruise in the middle of his forehead from banging his skull on the hardwood floor when he didn't get his way. He was sweet, adorable, and my little best friend, but he was also independent and free.

note the bruises on the forehead!

Hudson? Hudson wants to be held. Cuddled. Kissed. When Hudson is disciplined (and I do mean lightly disciplined), his feelings are hurt, and he cries. He wants to do whatever Clayton does, even if it means being slayed in a sword fight (tune in tomorrow for that!) But mainly he wants to be in someone's lap, safe and warm.



I feel like so much has happened, and I haven't blogged about any of it. We left Kentucky on Tuesday morning and stopped in a teeny town in West Virginia mid-way. And we finally arrived "home" yesterday around 230pm. Since then, we've just been relaxing. Well, Mark returned to work today, and I have to clean the house. So.. not really "relaxing" after all.

Our best friends are joining the Air Force! And, since about 96% of my readers are Air Force Wives, each of you should stop by their blog and congratulate them on their new, exciting journey! Each of you is chuck-full of experience and good advice -- He's now in the DEP program (which some of you are super familiar with!), and I know they'd love any info you have for them! Thanks in advance. We're praying they get sent to Langley with us -- but we'll see! I have so many friends around the world; they're bound to end up at a base with ONE of us! Exciting!

Mandy's husband just graduated from tech school today (yahoo! Way to go, Matthew!), so you should hop on over to her blog and congratulate them during this exciting time!

Not too much else is going on. I do have quite a bit to blog about, and I will in due time. I promise!


  1. Hudson is so cute! I swear! The cutest thing ever! I love how you talk to him! And get him to say words. So cute.

    Thank for the shout out to Matthew. :D Graduation was awesome! I'm uploading pictures to facebook right now! :)

  2. OMG Hudson is so adorable! I love your nephews and when you post videos of them! That's great that you also have more friends joining the AF too! I hope they get stationed at Langley with you guys!

  3. I hope our little J is cuddly and kissable. :)

    Also, we're SO EXCITED about the AF and hope/pray we get Langley, too! :D :D :D :D

  4. I wish they could stay so cuddly their entire lives, but boys grow up too fast when it comes to that (even they promised they will not). :)

  5. HI Shannon! I'm not a military wife, but thought I would say hi. What a cute blog you have here! Can't wait to see the "sword fight"! :)


    Check out Frame It Friday! over at Loving This Mom Stuff!
    I'd love to see some of your child's artwork!

  6. Wow. I'm so behind. I had no idea they were joining the AF! When did they decide? Oh, I guess I could hop over to her blog and catch up, eh?

    ps. Huds is so cute! :)
