Where we are

We have arrived to Fort Benning, GA (1 1/2 hours south of Atlanta)
We are so close to being in AL so we get the best of all the southern charms! We are still waiting for our stuff. We are hoping for this Sat since the possibility of last Sat has come and gone! It is HOT and HUMID! We are having issues adjusting but it is coming. When the movers come I will take picts and post. right nor not very exciting with 2 folding chairs and some mattresses!

More cute stuff

I keep running across things that I forgot to post from the last month. I just thought these were cute. We love going to the cabin everytime we are in AZ. It is just so wonderful and relaxing!

That's my girl!


Almost forgot to post this! Brian thought he needed a motorcycle when he got home to help "fight gas prices!" So I ordered one to be ready here in AZ when we got down here. We went and picked it up and he loves his Triumph Bonneville! The girls do too. I have Abbey to afraid to ride (yeah me) Kass though loves being a rebel so she is allowed to ride around the block (even though it makes me want to puke) I pretend I am OK with it!

Rock on little girl, rock on

I think it really is a cool bike. Maybe when I am 80 we can ride this to our mission! weeeeee

Here are a few things that happened while we were in WA for a month! So nice to have Brian home. I can't wait to get to GA and have our life get back to normal.

Father's Day

This year the girls were were blessed to celebrate father's day with their dad!
They got him cologne and a wallet! There is no stopping the creativity there huh?!

Too dang cute. I could eat all of them up!!!

We went hiking at the waterfalls for fathers day. It was so pretty and we had a lovely time

Their totem has got nothing on the Team Caldwell totem!
This one tells the story of a sickeningly happy family that will always be close and wonderful!
We love you Brian, you truly are the best dad!
The girls ADORE you

Abbey turns 4!!!!

Our little girl has turned 4!!!
While we were in WA we had a small party with some old friends at the good old reliable Chuck E Cheese!

Just waking up a four year old!

Ariel stickers, can't go wrong thanks Grandma Sherrie!

Loves her funny sister!

Transformed into blonde Ariel!!

Abbey and Lillie, do you think she likes the gift?!

Had to have this Ariel cake. We went to several stores
to find this one. Do I spoil her, maybe, but I don't care!

It was so great to have Brian here for her birthday. We had a great time meating with old friends we hadn't seen. Got to see how big all children had gotten over 15 months!

Mostly can't believe that Abbey is now 4. Time is going so fast! We love her and her constant smile. She is now growing into quite the ham. She makes a face for every emotion there is. Never a dull unlaughable moment with her! So glad we were trusted to have her on this earth!

10 years down infinity to go

This post is long over due. I have been enjoying my time with Brian so much that I have let my blog go. He is now back up in WA to get our things on the truck so i have time to remember and miss him!
July 3rd we celebrated our 10th anniversary!
Brian surprised me by being a romantic and taking me to the hotel we went on our honeymoon! He did however upgrade our room to a bit bigger! It was a fantastic time. We splurged and got each other nice gifts. I got him a motorcycle (to be posted later) and he got me a fab tahitian pearl necklace (see pict below)

Couldn't seem to get a good one of both at the same time!
Cute Brian, ugg Kristal

Our room said it had a jacuzzi tub, didn't mention it was white trash!!! ha ha
I heart our tub and Brian
Being nostalgic and stopping at some of our old look outs from when we lived in northern AZ. I am a little partial but I do have to say he is about the cutest thing ever!
I thank the Lord all the time for having this wonderful man with me. He is the perfect husband and father. I don't know what I did in heaven to get him but I am glad I did!
I love you the most Brian.

Strong and spirited. You're no one's girly girl; actually you are very determined person with a strong sense of self. Never let go of that! The only thing that equals your sense of self is your family, but the traditions of society can always be bent to protect something or someone you love.
