I think this story begins just after Thanksgiving……yeah, just after Thanksgiving….
Well, there go the leftovers! Turkey, stuffing and mashed taters….everything a growing dog needs.
One holiday down and a few more to go till mommy comes home from her deployment. We miss the mommy. The daddy says she comes home in like 6 months. My brother and I did the math and we think that is like 100 years long. We’ll have to check our numbers again, it could be longer.
Last year daddy was a little depressed and didn’t do much for the holidays cause mommy was deployed then too. It was real tough on us too. This year the daddy is making things more festive.
For Christmas we got a live tree this year. We didn’t even put up a fake one last year. We’re not sure if it’s cause he was afraid that we would try to “water it” or he wasn’t in the spirit. The daddy said we were really lucky because a great organization that likes military families donated Christmas trees to our base this year. And because the mommy is deployed they picked daddy to specifically get one. We want to thank the organization “Trees for Troops” for the awesome tree they gave daddy!
Daddy didn’t want to put ornaments on it because that is what the mommy does each Christmas. It lets us enjoy the season but still remember that the mommy is not here with us.
Not long after the daddy put up the tree he was sick with the flu. He wasn’t doing well at all….
It took the daddy a whole week to get better. But when he felt better he went back to “Decking the Halls.”
Daddy went all out this year. He even put up decorations and christmas lights outside.
Now all that’s left is to wait for the Santa to show up with all kinds of treats and toys for us to destroy!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
