You Might be a Military Wife at Christmas if.......
6... your children know that things aren't as important as who you're with
11.... you read the Soldier's Night Before Christmas book and understand all the terms
13.... you've gone on "holiday home tours" just to see what the inside of the General's/ Base Commander's house looks like!
16 ... coupons for dinner once a week with friends would make an awesome stocking stuffer!
17 ... you know civilians don't "know how you do it" and frankly neither do you but you wouldn't trade this life for anything!
18 ... you've braved the midnight sales at the PX/BX/NEX for that one special item
19 ... you've posted an add in the newspaper with your honey's picture and a message just for him
20 .... you have no idea what he wants/needs for Christmas so a sexy picture of you will have to do ....
21... you've ever sent out military themed baby announcements "Our New Recruit..." etc
22... you've ever held Christmas for just a few days cause Dad will be home by then
23... the best Christmas present was when he showed up unannounced on Christmas Eve
24.... you know exactly where all the Christmas decorations are, the breaker box and how to hang lights,etc but that doesn't mean you want to cause it's just one more reminder he's not home... but you do it anyway!
25 ... you've ever spray painted little green plastic Army men gold in order to make them ornaments for the tree in your boy's room
(of course there's more and I could go on but ..... check out others lists at Wives of Faith Christmas Blog Carnival)
