I'm Ready for Santa... and Our Guys

a new ornament for Noah... I just can't resist any of the Noah's ark things... this ornament is painted on the INSIDE

on the fireplace mantel... it's an ornament -- but you'd have to have one hardy tree to hang that bear on! we put Noah's name and the year on the back of the kevlar... I'm looking to add a little bandaid, too...

we are thinking of lots of people this Christmas... we added stockings for all Our Guys....
and this dang song still is making me tear up every time I hear it (which seems to be at least once a day)

I'll be home for Christmas;
You can count on me.
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love-light gleams.
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams.

Written by Kim Gannon, Walter Kent, and Buck Ram

but Our Guys tell me they got their dates... tentative dates -- but they have their RETURN DATES!! WHOOHOO! Soon (not soon enough) but soon!
