was tradition in our apt. 112 to always make eachother awsome/wierd cakes, well I did not want
this tradition to die so....
I have been slaving away all week trying to make the PERFECT cake for Kristit B-day!
Love you Kristi
I started off making six CUTE cakes and then decided she need a weirder one for her b-day so...
I made her a VL purse cake! Kristi loves purses right, dang I forgot she loves Coach...so
I made a Star Treck cake? Maybe that would be more approptiate for little Cynda's birthday...
So I then made a punguin cake, and relized Nattie would love that so much more than Kristi...

last but not least I made Kristi a chest of money cake!... Dont ask

Hope you love your birthday cakes Kristi, sorry you are too far away to eat them, look like me and Ry are going to be putting on some pounds. Okay so maybe I did not make all these cakes, I might have had just a little help from Google images, maybe.

Ryan at the FBI Acadamy

So, yes this is my second post today but I just wanted a post about my adorable husband because I am so proud of him for working so hard at the intership of his dreams, really he is obsessed with it. His intenship ends tomorrow and then we will being heading home after the Thanksgiving holidays so here is a little of what he has been doing the last few months. His internship is at the FBI Acadamy in Quantico, VA he working in the International Training and Assistance Unit (i hope I got that right I always mess it up) anyways they plan and do all these training things for forgein country's. It's like mini crash coarses of what agents training is but for interational federal empolyees/police. For example for two weeks Ryan was with a group of police from all over Centeral America and every day got to sit in on awsome classes about gangs, street violence, how to tactically enter a room, crimes on children and terrorist crimes scense and also got to do hands on stuff with them, like role playing with guns with paint ball bullets. So pretty much he has loved his internship and I dont really understand alot of the stuff he talks about, but it sounds really cool and he is so happy and loves it :) He has also had to do crapy photo copying intern work but he says it's all worth it. So yes pretty much my husband is awsome awsome! OH! and last Friday he got to give me a tour of the Acadamy it was so cool to see and to see where he has been working and meet all the nice people he works with! Here are some pics for the tour!

Ryan in the J Edger Hover reading room at the Acadamy
Me at Hogan's Alley, this was my favorite part of the tour, Hogan's Alley is a FAKE town of several streets buildings like post office, motel, resturats, apartments, but none of it is real! it is used for training, they hiring actors to come in and play the bad guys and they role play, its practice for the agents, so cool

One of the Hogan Alley streets, loooks like there is some role play going on

At the Acadany there is the coolest memorial for 9/11 and this is part of it there is a piece of Flight #93, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center

This is the memorial, the two black thins are obviously the World Trade Centers then if you look close Pennsylvania is printed on them, and then the gray bottom is shaped like the Pentagon, then below that is the picture from above.

BENDA in the VA

Just ONE More Week

just one more week from today and this horrible work schedules thing we got going on will be over. For the last two and a half months we have been here and in Virgina, and we do love it, they only thing i hate about it beside being far away from are friends and family is our work schedules! Ryan leaves for work and 7 a.m. and gets off and 4:30 and arrives home at 5:30. I go to work starting between 4:00 and 6:00 so we barley miss eachother everyday or get to see eachother for a few short minutes. I get off usually aroun 10:00-11:00 and by then poor hardworking Ryan is very tired and falls asleep a little after I get home. But in just one week form today is both of are last days! And we will be on schedules where we get to see eachother alot more! :) Also in just seven days our friends Scotty, MB, John, Jenna, and Taylor will be here to celebrate Thanksgiving with us! seven day and counting...-Whitt
