Spread Some Christmas Cheer


My son-in-law is on his second deployment this year  
after a brief time in the states 
during which time he and my daughter had to relocate across the country. 
He left before the ink was dry on the lease for their new place! 


Sailor Boy (aka Bud) and Teacher Girl
USS Kaufmann Homecoming in Norfolk, VA earlier this year. 

He will not be home for the holidays. 
Will you wish him and the ship's crew a Merry Christmas? 
You can go to the ship's facebook page and wish them a Merry Christmas -
 https://www.facebook.com/USSHIGGINS/
Or, if you prefer,
leave a comment below and I will be sure he sees it.

It won't take long and will mean so much   
to the sailors to know they are not forgotten 
while we are enjoying good, random holiday fun.
Thanks everyone! 

I'll be home for Christmas 
If only in my dreams. 
-Bing Crosby

Ahhhh... that's hard. We have been there many a times... our "big" transition in October was retirement from the military because they wanted to separate us again, this time for 20+ months... after 8 deployments we said no way. So, I totally get this. I'll be keeping your daughter and son-in-law in my thoughts for sure. Merry Christmas!

I left them a nice Christmas wish. It's tough to be away at this time of year, but these are tough people.

You must feel heartbroken about it. I wish Bud a Merry Christmas and a safe return home.

My Dad left on many a deployment and I know how your families feel. Bless you all! Be strong and know your loved ones, and people you don't even know are sending prayers up for your safety and quick return home! Merry Christmas!!!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas! That song always brings a tear to my eye.

What a good looking couple! It is SO right that he and his friends realise that they are being thought about while they are away!

Perfect song-being a navy brat I totally understand the mindset of not having family around-letters become very important-please thank him for his service

That stinks that he won't be home for the holidays, but I am so grateful for the service of these fine young men. Stay safe and Merry Christmas.

Hope they moved to a warm place (in winter), or...? A merry Christmas to all of you!
