I Caved…

ok, not like I would actually SKIP Christmas…even though I wouldn’t mind there is NO way Layla would let me. I tried to get away with a small table top tree. Nope. Just because I’m moping around hoping that avoiding Christmas will mean that it just wont happen doesn’t mean the 6 year old is. She is WAY ready and excited for everything that comes along with the holiday. I’m still stuck on the fact that this is the first Christmas alone in our home. I guess I shouldn’t complain that we’ve only been apart 2 of our past 9 Army Christmases. Those times though Layla and I were always in AZ so I didn’t have to ‘do Christmas’ in our home without T here.

So Layla wouldn’t let me skip it. She needed the big tree and the decorations. Not sure she realizes that I only put about half of them up…but it works. She’s happy. And I am too…I love love love the lights. Still ready for it to be over though…

I’m hoping we can pack out and get our stuff shipped off to Korea RIGHT after Christmas. Which is going to suck a bit.

And on another note…today was L’s first day back at school after a week of Fall Break.

Timmy was not ok with it.
