Update for November

Ok so lets see if I can update this to today's date. We have been severely busy with life these days. Its like were has all the time gone. Well since I last posted in October we had Halloween with our friends which was amazing watching the kids get candy and of course my favorite part is digging through it and getting what I like out.. he he. Anyhow, Uriah is growing up so fast. He's making friends and interacting as he should. The month of November went by too fast. We visited the Philippines for the first time. We had a blast on our vacation. We started out in Makati City and saw everything that was in that area.. Mall of Asia, Greenhills Mall (largest flee market I've ever seen). We celebrated Thanksgiving at a small restaurant. We also went to the sea life park along with Rizal park. We took a day trip to Corrigador Island which was gorgeous. We were able to get a history lesson in about world war II and toured a huge tunnel where the Japanese barricaded and blew themselves up with grenades. After along day we grabbed some grub and went to our amazing hotel. We also went to Tagati city which is were Taal Volcano is located and had an amazing lunch on pretty much a cliff. I'm deathly afraid of heights so it took me a minute to actually agree to eat in the hut that oversaw Taal Volcano and the Bay area. It was an amazing view. On Friday we took a mini vacation to another island known as Boraki. We then flew to Boraki which is a small island south of Manila. It was beautiful and most importantly we were able to see another country, culture, and enjoy each other. While we were in Boraki we flew into a small island then had to get on a boat that looked like a cataran but not as sturdy. I thought we were going to drown for sure. We made it to the island of Boraki and we had tons of help with our luggage as people looked us like we were crazy for having 3 suit cases and 2 backpacks. Anyhow transportation is a little different instead of taxi cabs they have three wheel tracks which is a motor cycle with a side cart with a front seat that fits two people and then the back where you can fit 4 people and luggage on top. So we take off in this track and we drive about 10 minutes to what we thought was our hotel. We get off and our "designated tour guide" some guy that randomly wanted to show us our hotel. So we get out and he tells us its a 5 minute walk. We thought for sure we were going to be killed. 300 yards later we walk up to our hotel that's on the beach. We walk in the doors and they reek of paint fumes. Mind you we bought a all inclusive package for a hotel we are showed our room that oversees the ocean gorgeous and its an ultimately an apartment. So I told Jeff we couldn't stay there and we walked up and down the strip found a new place to stay and on top of that we were haggled by the street hagglers and it waw quite the site to see.. Anyhow, we move rooms which is about a mile walk and a 3 minute track but we had to move all of our stuff. Needless to say it was interesting. We we went on a private boat tour which did island hopping. so we were able to see a few of the surrounding islands and go snorkling. My favorite part was the blowholes and really just getting the family time. We also do ziplining which is highly recommended from me some one scared of heights. We did buggy cars that was fun we got to see all the tallest point on the island and their small zoo along with numerous beaches. We came home at the end of November just in time for me to have my LEEP procedure done. Nothing came back cancerous but I will have to continue to go every 6 months for a papsmear. We also will be high risk during the next pregnancy because of the procedure. We aren't trying for any babies until I'm don with school which should be Decemberish but I will walk next May. I am super excited to be going to school and I feel accomplished if that makes any sense. I'll be the first of the kids to finish college and I just really want to beat the generation curses. Anyhow that was the month over November it came and went so fast.

So it's been a few weeks. I had my colposcopy done and I will have to have a procedure done because the cells came back more precancerous. So this procedure will be done on 22 October I ask for youer prayers I'm a little nervous and I know its all in God's hands! Uriah is growing up so fast. He's jabbering like no other I just can't wait for somethimg more than mama to come out and then I will want him to stop talking isn't that how it always is. I'm about a foot over my head in homework. I'm trying my best with all these distractions I have going on. My prayer is that I can manage my time better and learn how to be more dedicated to my family, school work, and be a great wife and mom. I will say this those single moms that go to school full time and work full time "YOUGOGIRL" I dont remember what I did with all my time prior to having a kiddo.. Wow what I would do to have an hour of it back. hehe.. So life has been busy and good. I can't wait to plan our first family vacation which should be coming up in a few months. Well thats it I have to hit the books. have a wonderful day!

God Bless

So last week I told Jeff about me having nightmares of me dying. It goes anywhere from a natural death, someone robbing my house, to a long painful death. I have been praying for God to take these dreams away from my mind. So during our conversation which I find interesting Jeff says I've been having daydreams to dreams about you dying in car accident to a natural death. I think that is too creepy. Last Monday we got a phone call from the OBGYN office saying that my yearly came back abnormal with an 8cell1 which I still have no idea what that actually is anyhow I have to get a Colposcopy done whenever the Dr office decides to call me back with a scheduled date. I'm not excited one bit about this but I understand that it can come back normal, once again abnormal which could cause more testing, or show if I have cancerous cells. I know that God is on my side and whatever it is he will take care of it but for now I'm enjoying life with my Monkey that keeps me going constantly in the midst of studying to finish this degree I'm pursuing by next fall so God willing we are able to have more kiddos.

Some thoughts

I haven't posted lately sorry.I want to thank all of you that have been there for us through thick and thin. We have been completely busy with school and fitting adult time in when I can.. Uriah keeps me busy in between studies and Jeff keeps me busy as well. I think its funny how life goes from busy to more busy. Upcoming events in our lives.. School is the obvious Jeff and I are taking the same amount of classes and one of them are the same. We will be the directors of Puggles this coming fall and we are so excited to see what God has in store for us as directors, leaders, and even as a parent in the upcoming season. We are nervous and we are definately stepping out of our comfort zone but we need to be reaching out to others and if thats through their children than thats what we are going to do :)! Jeff will be leaving for the Phillipines on in September for 10 days we thought about going with him but I'm going to be taking a class. We may go on a cruise of the islands around christmas time which I'm stoked about we haven't been a real vacation since we were in Korea. That's all for now and I'm so glad I could clear my head. Love ya

God is Great!!

Life at the McFadden's

Well it has been pretty crazy around our home. Jeff was gone from Mar 7ish to June 7th. Uriah and I flew home to visit as many family and friends as possible. Our adventure started on May 8 on Uriah's First birthday. We went to Dallas to try to see everyone in a short few days then off to Little River Academy to visit My mother, Sister, Step Papal, and Aunt. We were only there a short 5 days then off to Amarillo we went. We stayed with my aunt and uncle the first week and then stayed with Jeff's parents the other 3 weeks. We had a blast visiting everyone. Uriah was spoiled rotten. It's so bad 4 weeks later I'm still trying to break all the bad habits. Well Jeff joined us in Amarillo on the 7th of June and off to Arkansas to meet Grandpa, Great Grandma, and some more aunts and uncles. I must say we did alot of traveling but it was so great seeing everyone. Once we got back to Hawaii we didn't really get to recover from vacation like we wanted to so immediately Jeff went back to work and I signed up for classes. I'm currently taking 3 classes, 2 of which are 5 weeks long and looking at signing up for another one. I'm trying to finish my degree by May. It's a personal goal that I hope to reach. I think I will be the first one to graduate with a Bachelors degree in my family. Soo woowooo not that I'm bragging just making a statement. So Ihave 21 classes to finish if I want to graduate in May I'm currently on track as long as I stay focused. Baby fever has been calling my name recently I'm not to sure why but I'm staying as far away from it as I can. I must complete my degree before we have another little one running around. So Jeff is currently taking 2 classes and between Uriah time and studying time we are doing quality time and catching some zzzz's. As you can see we are quite the busy bees. We are looking forward to finding out what our gifts and strengths are so that we can serve our God to the best of our ability. Well I think thats a good update. We do have pics from our trip on FB so if you want to see them let me know I can post them I'm just being lazy. Have a wonderful week. God Bless and God Speed!!

Whats going on with the McFaddy's

Ok so I know I'm a complete slacker when it comes to blogging.. So heres the update.
Jeff has been in Augusta, GA since March 7 and will be there until June 7. Hes in ALC(Army Leadership Course) and has to have this in order to make the next rank. He's doing well he truly misses home.. He's missed out on alot of milestones but thanks to Skype has has been able to see some of them.

Uriah is doing great. He is spoiled rotten... So he started walking March 25th.. started clapping the week after and has said the word momma and dadda. He is my light.

I will be out of the Army on May 25th officially.. I have been on leave since March 12th. I have enjoyed the life of a stay at home mom and cooking.. It has been interesting going from working fulltime to really trying to fill my time with a bunch of things to do..

Wow its been awhile

Well I figure it's time to update everyone on whats going on in our lives these days. Well Uriah is 8 months and growing up so so fast. On the 27th of December he began crawling and its just amazing at how fast the little man gets from point a to point b. If you didnt know I am currently trying to get out of the Army to be a stay at home mom with our little man. This process has been long and tiresome. It really is a simple process however my commander is dragging this out as far as he can. I know that God is in control and that he will make sure things are done they way they are meant to be done. Jeff is doing well since the hospital stays no more spells of passing out or dying on me. He received a surf board for christmas and loves going to the beach. Now that Uriah is old enough for me to trust someone to watch him while I go in the water I love the beach as well. I tried surfing yesterday I caught a wave all the way in on my knees because of it being my first time I didnt feel like busting my bottom in the Ocean so I knee boarded all the way in. Jeff will be leaving for 5 months come March :(. I plan on coming home in May for a month and then Jeff and I will be headed on vacation. WooHooo.. Life is on a full fledge move constantly.
