A White Christmas

Happy Holidays one and all! It's been a few days since I've hopped on the blog and made an update on life. We are currently visiting family and enjoying the Christmas holiday in the frozen tundra. My kids love the weather (aka snow) and being with extended family.

We made it through the "biggest" holiday this deployment. So we get to exhale a little. We are on the downhill side to homecoming. With this nice little break with family, I feel we are refreshed enough to make it to the end with our sanity :)

Here the snow keeps falling... and melting...and falling again. The boys are in their element.  

I guess snow can be fun :)

When the snow gets too cold, then we bake cookies.
It's the likely answer at Christmas, right??


  1. So good to hear that you got to spend this holiday with family!
    And thoughts and prayers that the rest of this deployment goes by speedily... my husband and I have only spend two Christmases apart, but the holidays can easily turn into a depressing (and lonely and bitter) time.

  2. I'm so glad you were able to be with family for the holidays! :)

  3. What a fun time! I love snow and miss it so much this year. We haven't had any here (Texas, sooooo I'm not counting on any), but i was really hoping for some when we went to Missouri for Christmas, but no look! Glad to hear you're on the downhill slope toward homecoming now!! :)
