Proud officers wife!

Can I just tell you how excited I am for my husband and proud I am of him! He worked really hard on putting his package together for the air force and with every odds against him he made it in the aif force as a navigator. He is an amazing and smart person and I was sure that they wouldn't miss this opportunity to have a good leader in the military. He will do a great job leading others and is an amazing example to me so I know he will be a great example the men that are under him. I love you babe and am so happy for you! I guess this means I have to act a certain way now that I am a officers wife but I have no idea what that implies other than Dave tells me there will be expectations that have to be met. I am very well behaved though other than my moments of being spaztic but I will control myself.

Dave got selected!!!

So this is actually Dave writing, I am just too lazy to sign out and sign back in under my name. As many of you know we have been anxiously waiting to hear if I would get selected for the Air Force. We found out last Friday that I had in fact been selected.

I was not selected for my first choice of pilot, but luckily I added a second choice at the last second and was selected as a navigator. I had not really done much research on being a navigator since I really wanted to be a pilot but the more research I do the more excited I get. It will be a great career, and an amazing adventure for our family. I am so lucky to have a great wife that supports me in this as I know it will not be easy, especially the first couple of years.

I am scheduled to get my flight physical on Dec. 17. Once that gets approved then I will be assigned a class date and can proceed to training. I am hoping to be able to get into training by March or April, but that all depends on how quickly the physical gets approved. The best thing I have going for me is that I am considered age critical so I automatically get pushed to the front of the line for everything.

My first training stop will be OTS for 13 weeks in Alabama by myself. After that we will be going to Pensacola, FL for approximately a year for navigator training. We are all really excited and anxious to get going on this.

Thanksgiving Holidays

So I know it has been awhile since I have posted and know it is finally time to write something. November went by pretty fast for us. Olivia and I got to fly out to see my sister in Vegas and it was so fun seeing Heather finally being a mom it was a lot of fun and abigail is such a easy going and adorable baby she has it easy. We hung out a lot and ate yummy food. Saw my brother rhyan and his family for a day and went and saw christmas lights. My parents flew in on wednesday and we had a great time eating lots of food, going to see New Moon, and enjoying each others company. I left Dave behind and he was definitely ready for me to come by the end of the trip. I felt bad for leaving him but I made sure he was taken care of for Thanksgiving.

Can I just tell you I love getting into the christmas spirit and it is always hard living in a warm place to do that. Until I found out tonight that was are supposed to get snow and I am so excited for that besides the fact that I don't like the cold anymore and I have to always run to my car or a building cause I am not used to it. Livy liked helping me put the christmas decorations up and enjoys eating her nativity scene of wood. Dave said she took a chunk of baby jesus off today but I am sure he tastes good because babies are fun to nibble on. She loves watching the chipmunks movie and dances a ton while watching it. She is going on mommies footsteps dancing everywhere she goes. I can't wait to put her in dance class someday but if she doesn't like it I will understand. Another thing livy likes to do is climb into her stroller either in the basket in the bottom or the front and so Dave took a picture of her in the bottom basket of the stroller. That is about it besides the fact that our house is nervous for tomorrow because Dave finds out about the Air Force!
