I think this is one of my all time favorite christmas's so far.

On the base here at the Tech school there are 3000 Airman. All but 50 (including Eric) went home the holidays.... and only one person from Erics class stayed here. Well, he didn't know anyone, had no family here, and was saving his time off for before he moves to Germany, so we invited him over to spend Christmas eve with us. I made a TON of food.... we had Vegetarian Nachos, mozzerella sticks, some pizza thing, corn bites, tons of cookies, desserts etc.... And we played Guitar Hero, KAreoke Revolution, watched Bad Santa, the guys both had hot Chocolate w/ peppermint Schnapps (I didn't, DD since he had to go back to base, and well, the whole not 21 thing) and then we opened our traditional jammies on christmas eve, and we had wrapped a package of Banana Oreos and made a little stocking for Eric's friend. He was so surprised, and happy! He had nothing to open on Christmas (his family sent a gift card) so he loved it! The stocking had a peppermint Gheridelli bar, some other little Candies in it, a christmas pencil (LOL), and a little gingerbread beanie baby. Anyways, we all hung out and had a great time, I took him back to base about midnight. While he was here his mom called, and she was saying that she felt so bad that he was alone on chrismas and in his dorm, and he was telling her that No he was Eric's, and how we "adopted" him for christmas and even got him a gift and a stocking and his mom wanted to talk to Eric, and she told him she was so thankful for us having him over (and he told us this so many times last night too!) ad she was CRYING and thanking Eric for letting her son have a christmas this year. In the past 6+ months we've had so many people help us out and welcome us, and now we are thrilled to be helping someone else (we did it for Thanksgiving too with others).

Oh, it was so funny... Caiden went and opening 2 gifts last night (Grinch Jammies and Elmo slippers) and he didn't want to stop! He went to bed right after that, and we told him he could open more gifts in the morning. Well at 6 am Caiden comes in and starts trying to DRAG us to the living room so he could open more!

It was so much fun.

Oh, I was trying to seperate some turkey sausage patties this morning, and butter knife slipped and I took a chunk out of my thumb! It hurt so bad.... then I went into shock or something and passed out the kitchen flood. :S It's ok now..... and stopped bleeding, so I think It'll be ok.

We opening gifts this morning and called our families..... and now we're wtahcing Fred Claus and Caiden is napping.

Some pics!

So excited about his elmo slippers


Food! (more was in the kitchen too!)
