2 Weeks and 2 Days Down, 2 Weeks and 1 Day to GO!

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Can you believe it is December already? Today is a wonderful day, KS had been gone exactly 2 weeks and 2 days and it is exactly 2 weeks and 1 day until I get to pick him up! I am so excited about Christmas Exodus, KS will be home for two wonderful weeks. Once he heads back to BCT he will have completed Red Phase so he will be returning to an easier time and he will have got the worst of it behind him. Have I mentioned how proud I am of my husband lately? Not many people hear the call to serve and even fewer answer it with pride and willingness.

The kids and I already decorated the house on Sunday and for those of you who don't know me I am crazy about my Christmas tree. I have MY own tree that I decorate. The kids are not allowed to touch it. Sounds horrible I know but its not that bad, they have their own tree that they get to decorate. I also have a separate tree for all of their ornaments, b/c their school ornaments cant go on my tree (I know its bad...) There school tree is in the kitchen so I get to enjoy it and their special ornaments all throughout the day and I still get to enjoy MY tree (yes they will tell you "This is Mommy's tree") They don't care and in the end everyone is happy! Cayleigh-Grace will be getting her tree as soon as our paycheck gets deposited into our account on the 15th (fingers crossed). Hers will be pink and her ornaments are sitting on top of her dresser awaiting their tree. I will post pics of it once I get it and put it up.

Why is it that Christmas tree pictures never do the trees any justice, they never look anywhere near as good as they do in person. If anyone knows how to take good Christmas tree pictures can you please lend me your secrets!! It would be GREATLY appreciated!

That is such a great idea about the trees. I admit I am picky about my ornaments. It's bad but this year I don't seem to care as much for some reason. I really like your idea of at least having a school tree.

And how exciting that you are over halfway through the first part of basic. You will be with your husband again so soon!!!
