Christmas Eve dinner - dungeoness crab, boiled shrimp, homemade cocktail sauce, melted butter, corn on the cob, ceasar salad and french baguettes
Some of the remains of the crabs. Poor babies. :)
The stockings were hung from the chandelier with care. AWESOME, huh?
I think my sister-in-law is pretty darn clever! Not enough room on the mantle - find a better option.
And in the mail today two very special gifts from some very special people:
Thank you Stephen. I will treasure this forever! You Sky Soldiers & ROCK Paratroopers mean more than the world to me. I'm eternally grateful for your love and love you always.
From LTC & Mrs "Ranger" John and Connor. Ranger John's one of my favorite scotch drinking buddies. Oh heck, he's just one hell of a guy all the way around. He'll be home from another deployment soon. I see a trip south in my near future. Gotta catch up on some drinking, tales and get some tips on using this flask. I love you Ranger John. Be safe and hurry home. We've missed you!
