Hard to say Goodby...

It was a wonderful ceremony!!

Farewell ceremony to honor 45th

Weekend Fun!

This is probably the last time that Keira and Jaden and will get to see their Uncle Kale for a year or see he leaves next Saturday to prepare for his deployment to Afghanistan. I'm still not sure of his exact schedule - I think that is what selective amnesia is for!!! He'll be home for 3-4 days the end of March, for sure, and then we are hoping for a few days the first part of May, that I'm not sure of. And then, he will be in Afghanistan sometime in June...this mother's worst nightmare come true!
So...this weekend has been all about family, fun and food!
Uncle Kale promised to take Jaden fishing.

And this was their first catch of the day!! By the look on Jaden's face I don't think that he is quite sure about wiggly and slimmy~!
And then Keira had fun with her Uncle Kale chasing Jaden. Her little legs couldn't ever catch her big brother so Uncle Kale had to help. He hoisted her on his shoulders and the chase was on! She laughed so hard you couldn't help but laugh too!

I just love this picture!!
Right after this picture was taken Auntie Erin and I went home to start dinner. On the menu, Hillbilly Spaghetti! This has become one of my family's favorites!
Keira and Jaden spent the night to spend even more time with their Uncle Kale.
On the agenda today, Keira and I are going to make Uncle Kale cake balls!
Here's to the memories that will have to last us a year!
