I’m awake, just me and the dogs. Yesterday was pretty nice, the kids seemed to like everything they got. What they don’t know is Christmas gets a Mulligan this year. The tree stays up until Hunny gets his R&R, and we’ll have Christmas with him. They currently think it’s just him getting gifts, what they don’t know is they are too. Stockings, dinner, the whole nine yards.
Yesterday we waited until he got online, only he called instead. So the kids opened their presents while I talked to him, then they each got a turn to talk with Daddy. My youngest immediately made her bed after that, since Santa brought her a full set of Hannah Montana bed stuff. Then they took off for a friends house.
That’s something that wouldn’t happen if we weren’t an Army Family. But the sad fact is, they never know how long a friend will stay here. And it’s important that they get time with them while they can, including Christmas. This particular friend was the first one they met. He’s a great kid, always included the youngest, even though my oldest was the one he started out friends with. His family treats them like their own. And he’s leaving in a couple months. So is my youngest daughter’s close friend.
I spent most of the day working on this here website. Simplifying the theme, moving in some older posts. I accidently spammed my Twitter feed in the process…ooops! I still have some posts to move over that didn’t quite make it somehow. I didn’t get pics of the girls opening presents, since I was enjoying the sound of my husband’s voice at the time. But the dogs had some interesting moments…lol
