  12. The reason I love the holidays is because I love giving back to the local community and the base community as well. It is the best time to give to people who are less fortunate. Myself and my husband take in a few family friends each holiday season on CHristmas so they are not left without family to enjoy the holiday with. I of course love my family and friends. They are top priority in making them happy. So, holiday's are feel of cheer, even if it's far away from the ones I love the most.

  13. We love the holidays because it gives us time to get together as a family and just spend some quality time together. With all the hustle and bustle throughout the year we always seem rushed. We love seeing the sparkle in everyone's eyes this time of year; not just the little ones but adults too!

  29. My favorite part about this season is decorating the christmas tree and thinking about every christmas before hand. How things have changed, what things have remained the same. One thing that truly has remained the same is my respect for what the holiday is always about. Jesus' Birthday! Celebrate!

I love keeping them on display throughout the year and looking at all the people in our lives. I put them in photo albums when the next Christmas approaches. The kids love looking back through them and seeing how friends and family have changed through the years.
