Sweet Sweet Monday

Normally, the word sweet and Monday do not go together, but today was an exception. The boys and I got to see Kevin today. Now, before you get all excited for me, and thank you for getting excited for me, let me explain. The base has a video phone, and I called and asked if I could use it. They eagerly obliged. So, Noah, Caleb, and I sat in front of a 27" TV and saw Kevin via video phone. It was very nice seeing him and him seeing the boys. Noah was in need of a daddy fix. However, to my surprise I did not like what came on the TV. I love my husband, I think he is a hottie, but his new look is not my favorite. Imagine a bald head Kevin with a big, gnarly, tom selleck moustache, and that it what I saw today. Apparently, this is what all the guys do while deployed, they grow moustaches. How cool. NOT! I sweetly advised him to get rid of the tom selleck look before he arrives home in Sept. Honestly, it is not above me to show up to see him after 4 months with shaving cream and razor at the ready.
Noah was so funny talking with his dad. He kept repeating, "Dad get in a plane and fly to Noah's house!" and "Come and play, just get in a plane, it's not hard". We had a good laugh at his sweetness. However, when it came time to disconnect it was like saying good-bye all over again. Noah broke down for a few minutes and I carried two crying babies to the car. Seeing him was almost worse than not, cause I couldn't hug him or kiss him. I miss him and wish God speed upon these last months. It was a sweet sweet Monday.

I am sooooo happy you got to have a little bit of Kev yesterday. Ok, Noah's little sweet heart is making me cry.

I second the whole mustache thing. Oh well...one will never understand boys.

That is so great that you got to see Kevin! I understand the saying good bye thing. It was hard enough with just the phone and I really can't imagine seeing him and not be able to touch. It would kill me. Noah cracks me up! He is too smart for his own good. I'm going to miss him.

I've shared this story with some close friends. Anyway, my friend Stacy wanted me to tell you she's saying a prayer that Kev gets home quickly and safely :)

This entry is a definite tear jerker--got to get out the kleenex to dry the eyes. Isn't modern technology wonderful? Hang in there!

Hey girl...it's kind of late to leave a comment but I know exactly how you feel about saying bye again. I only wish they had the video phone but so sad they don't. We do get emails while underway but not while on missions. When Cody gets one it's almost not worth reading it to him b/c of what I have to deal with afterwards. Just take life "one day at a time." God will be there for ya...have faith. Love to ya
