Space Shuttle makeup

First off, Happy Thursday!!! Wooohooo!!! Another week is almost over. I know, I feel so bad that I have been a horrible blogger lately. I tell ya, with the holidays coming I am so beyond stretched. Hubby and I stayed up a little later than usual trying to get all the envelopes stuffed with not only cards but newsletters and family pictures. Whoa!!!

Now, I haven't been all about the holidays. I am so gonna spill the beans as to where I live EXACTLY. You all know that my husband is military. Well, we are stationed at Edwards AFB in California. What you might not know is that Sunday the 30th of November the space shuttle landed here at Edwards AFB. I so would have been there to watch it but it landed at the time we meet for church. Again, I might have skipped it but I had to speak. I so wanted to call and duck out but it was a good thing I didn't because I happened to be the only one that was supposed to speak that made it to church that day.
Anyway, with all that said, since I missed the landing of the space shuttle there is NO way I was going to miss the 747 taking off with the space shuttle on it's back.
I have been eyeing the website trying to find out for sure when it was going to leave. The time came yesterday morning at 7:00am our time. At first it was supposed to be 6:30 but I was willing to wake up myself and the boys to get there so we can all watch.
My digital camera isn't the greatest but I got one picture that I am going to share with you. I hope you enjoy.

Now, I also wanted to share a couple pictures of my fam at the tree lighting ceremony here on base. Like I said, we live in Southern California so no snow. Well, at the tree lighting they always bring in some snow and surround the area underneath the tree and then they let the kids go and play for a while. It is loads of fun. Since both my boys were born in Alaska they love the snow, well, my oldest does anyway. My youngest was still young when we left Alaska. We couldn't get him out of the snow, no matter how many times he got hit in the face he was ready for more. Enjoy the pics.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Thursday!!!

I don't know I think I would have been sick to see the space shuttle cool is it that you got to see it piggyback on the 747! Glad you had fun in the snow! :o)
