Merry Christmas Everyone! This has been one exciting holiday for us! First, my daughter Laura made an early appearance for Christmas!! She's my oldest and Isabel's mom, deployed as a civilian with the Army Corps of Engineers in Afghanistan for a year. She wasn't expected till 5 January, but managed to get out before snow storms hit them and she made it in Tuesday, 21 December!! Isabel was SO EXCITED; she kept repeating she'd gotten one of her Christmas wishes from Santa already and it wasn't even Christmas morning! Her wish - that her Mommy came home for Christmas! What a wonderful surprise!!
Then, abut 4:30 a.m. Christmas morning, I woke up to let the cats out, but I didn't see anything unusual. Then - look what I found at 8:00 a.m.!!!
