Merry Christmas from the Homefront
It's hard to believe that it was 4 years ago that hubby spent his Christmas in Afghanistan. It wasn't our first Christmas apart. Probably won't be our last. We don't usually exchange gifts with each other, and this year was no exception. Because it's enough to be together. Military life has taught us to appreciate the important things.
This was also the first Christmas since that deployment that we were able to celebrate with my parents, so it was wonderful having family here.
I much prefer cooking Christmas dinner over Thanksgiving... probably because there's no turkey to stress over... spiral hams are pretty idiot-proof!
Poor Max didn't know what to think of things. "Go plant my cat-grass, woman, I want a feast, too!"
