Oh my, I am soooooo tired! Christmas Eve was fun but busy, when your the hostess you don't get a lot of free time to sit and chat! It was probably better that was keep busy....

Billy called us early in the morning to let us know that he'd be calling back when everyone was at the house....that second call just broke my heart because it was Christmas morning for him and he sounded so sad. They all slept in one room eight Marines in sleeping bags scattered around their little tree, all decorated complete with gifts for each other and from home & their stockings were filled. They took care of one another. Billy ran back to his to his room to get his camera and to give us a call, he promised pictures so as soon as he gets them to us I'll share with you. He let me know that he wore his Christmas PJs that we sent to him & that he went to Church, such a good boy! He called again yesterday morning to chat with Mr. P & me, he is just so sweet!

Well, I'm not going to lie to you...I love Christmas but I am glad it's over! It was very different this year...we had a nice quiet day yesterday just the two of us! We needed that, today Nikky & Mike are going to meet us at my mothers house so that we can spend some time with her & then this afternoon Herself The Elf is coming to spend the night ~ I better get a nap in before she gets here :).....

O.k. here are a few pictures ( I didn't' get a lot because I was busy doing other things and Mr. P isn't the best photographer, LOL)

I Couldn't Resist...I tied my scarf around his head and then snapped this picture, if he knew I posted it OH MY!!!!!

Well, I'm off a few errands to run, some laundry to do, visit my mom & then home for our slumber party.....

Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless!
