MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

  1. If you were given $1,000 right now, how would you spend it?  I have a friend who could use it more than I so I would pass it along to her.
  2. If you had to choose a movie title (a real one that already exists) for your life story, what would it be?  Eat Pray Love. I'm always cooking something. It feels like I'm always praying for my soldier's safety. And I'm head over heels, crazy in love with my man and our kiddos.
  3. If you were a teacher, what subject would you like to teach?  Math. I've been busy doing math problems for Facebook friends who kiddos need help. The only problem being I'm good at getting the answer but bad at explaining how to do the problem.
  4. Has being a MilSpouse changed how you view holidays or how your holidays are celebrated? If so, how? If not, what hasn’t changed?  Before 9/11 I would have said not really. We have traditions that I like to follow but our holidays were more laid back. Since 9/11 I tend to feel every holiday has to be the best just incase next year we won't be celebrating it together. Christopher and the girls have the same winter break and I have a sort of list of things I want to do as a family. Games to play, snacks to make, movies to watch and places to go.
  5. What is your favorite Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) memory?  It would have to be Haillie's first Christmas. We were stationed at Ft. Drum and she was 8 months old. When we finished decorating the tree it was late and Christopher insisted on waking her up so she could see the tree. I was against the whole thing, you never wake a sleeping baby. He brings her into the living room and when she sees the tree her eyes grew wide. She was mesmerized. The look on her face was priceless and when I finally put her back into her crib she went right to sleep.

So sweet! I love hearing Christmas traditions, memories, etc. I am with you, we need to make every holiday extra special because you just never know when the military will take our man again.

I'm with you on making the holiday's extra special because you never know if he'll be deployed next year. We have a strong suspicion that that WILL be the case next year so I want to make this Christmas as awesome as possible.

I love your answer to #1. What a selfless thought!

I love your Christmas memory! I can't wait for my son to see our Christmas tree for the first time--hopefully it will go as well as your experience! :)
