Many thanks...

I just wanted to throw a BIG thank you to all the people out there still donating this Christmas season. We were fortunate enough to recieve a free tree this year through a program called Trees for the Troops. It was sponsored by Fedex and the Tree Growers Association. Each of the trees had card on them from families or people that donated. Our tree had a bunch of cards and handmade ornaments from a school in GA. It is nice to know that people are still willing to help others out. Which reminds me that I still need to get my gift for the Toys for Tots program.

On a side note it is amazing to me to see the homecomings going on again. The last brigade from the base is coming home two months early and will all be home in time for Christmas. How exciting is that? I still start to cry every time I see a Welcome home banner or see those ugly white buses roll by even though Matt has been home for almost 8 months now. Who knew that seeing plain white buses roll up could be the best thing in my life? Welcome Home 4th Brigade...We love all of you and can't wait until all of you are with your families again this holiday! ROCK OF THE MARNE!!!!

Your whole post gave me goosebumbs. We are donating food to a local food bank (it pays to use coupons and stock up on things) and I am going to try to go to the Christmas Angel tree this year to buy a gift for a less fortunate child. I love donating but my bank account doesn't always have te means to support it.
