Home Sweet Home

I'm proud to say that we're all moved and settled in at our new apartment. This place is great - unless you ask our 4 yr. old who will tell you "I don't like our new house." The first time he told me that he started crying. It broke my heart! He said he didn't like it because he didn't like having to be quiet. It is a huge adjustment considering our house is the only home he's ever known. I feel so bad that he's sad. I explained to him that it's only temporary until dad gets home and then we can build a house. Now every time he tells me he's sad we talk about what kind of house we should build.

(This is our "welcome" can outside our apartment.)

Just recently I came across a special that Tiny Prints was having. This was my chance to help make my boys a little happier. I made each of the boys their own Santa card. I was able to get one for free so I figured I would buy a second one (one for each of the boys) at full price. It was great! I personalized them, had them sent in the mail addressed to the boys themselves and the return address read: Santa Claus, North Pole. I even added a sentence from Santa: "I can't wait to bring your presents to your new apartment." My 4 yr. old LOVED it!

My Blue Star Flag

I recently went online to My Blue Star Flag to order my free flag to put in our balcony window. While I was ordering I noticed I could sign up for a FREE custom blue star flag, so, of course I did. A few weeks later I received an email stating I won!! I emailed them what I wanted my custom flag to say and a soon enough it was delivered to my door. I couldn't be happier - it's beautiful!!

Here's a picture of my free flag hanging up:

Here's a picture of our custom flag hanging up (I love it!!):
A special "Thank You' to for my free flag and the opportunity to win my custom flag. Another special "Thank You" to Dave England for the emboidered custom flag I won. I looks beautiful and it fits perfectly in our new home!
