I wanted to stop in and say hello and let everyone know I survived our first Christmas deployment. I am now in the "post-Christmas hangover" stage and wondering if my house will ever be clean again.
I think we had a good day. Skype and Iraqi internet worked for us (that is no small miracle!) and so Soldier boy got to see the kiddos open all of their gifts. We then went to a friend's house for dinner, which means that I did not have to do any cooking! That was really a blessing since I have been sick and not had enough energy to do anything.
Thank you to everyone for your prayers and well wishes. I pray that all of you had a great Christmas and will be blessed with a wonderful New Year in 2011!
It's Monday and I decided to join in the Military Monday Blog Hop for the first time :) Come over to The Marine Parent's Blog to join in on the fun!
