You might be a military wife at Christmas if....

Today is the last day of the Christmas blog carnival at Wives of Faith!

I have really enjoy this week of blogging, reading the other posts and 'meeting and getting to know the other ladies'. I hope this is the start of me continuing to blog and getting out of my own little pity party!

You might be a military wife at Christmas if....

You spend many Christmases away from your hometown.

You have a poinsetta as a tree because you moved into your apartment 2 weeks before Christmas for your first PCS and the apartment complex gave you the plant as a gift.

You decorate a Christmas tree with a patriotic theme.

Your kids wants a pink camouflage stocking because it reminds them of their daddy.

You see more green than red because of all the uniforms you see.

You purchase Daddy's presents early so you can mail them to make sure he gets them in time for Christmas.

You cry at songs like "I'll be home for Christmas" or "Sending you a little Christmas".

You have a houseful of single soldiers and married soldiers over for dinner because they too can't go home for the holiday and you LOVE it!

You are praying the holidays hurry up and get here and over with because it marks the half way point of deployment!

You are secretly a little anxious of how you all will do without Daddy here for Christmas! :(

This has been so much fun and encouraging. I pray everyone will have a bless Merry Christmas especially to all our soldiers serving oversea and their families!

Merry Christmas!
