    News from Afghanastan

    Well, I talked to my daughter in law tonight and my son wont make it home for the holidays. He is scheduled to be state side between Jan 1 and Jan 5 so at least there is a more defined time for him to come home.

    As long as he's safe! You can actually shift the date you celebrate the holidays around quite a bit. Make one day TG, another Christmas, and another New Years!

    Hope he will/is safe and you get to see him soon!


    Afghanistan is a tough place to be right now. My prayers will continue for all in harms way.

    My prayers have been for him and his troop. I don't care what day he gets home, just so he gets home to hug and talk with you guys.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    That's disappointing but at least you have a better time frame now.

    It is just a day on the calender, make Christmas when he is with you!

    Here in Japan, Christmas day is just a regular work day, no big deal, but we MAKE it a big deal in our house!
