I think I should start a Christmas tree watch…. how long will Happy’s tree stay up?!?!
Seriously, I think I’m going to take it down soon.
I thought I would take it down tonight, but then I got busy, so I didn’t.
I’ve never had my tree up in January. Never. It seems strange to have it in my family room when we’re watching college football bowl games.
Christmas trees and college bowl games don’t go together in my house.
The girls (except Cora) made it up until midnight. I’m proud of them. They really wanted to stay up and they did it. They’ll probably be a mess of tired because of it, but at least they can say they stayed up until midnight.
My boys are going shooting with a guy that works with their dad. They are excited about getting some boy time. I don’t like loud noises or cold weather so I’m thankful this guy is willing to take my boys out.
It’s stuff like this that really matters during a deployment. Folks who are willing to give up a few hours of their day to give something to my kids that I can’t.
My husband has been deployed to the Middle East for 274 days. These are my real thoughts expressing my heart during his absence. I appreciate your prayers and kind words as we cope, adapt, and carry on without him until August 2014. To read from the beginning, click here.
