I just finished talking to Chad. He's doing well. He was in a good mood! He's been Christmas shopping! Got to love the internet! LOL He also has recieved 4 boxes so far, 1 from me and 3 from others! I just ordered him something a little bit ago and maybe for those of you who want to send him a care package or another soldier a care package this would give you an idea.
I ordered him a tart burner and tarts. He picked out a few tarts he wanted and then I picked the rest. A friend of mine who has an online store is having a sale buy 12 for 5.00 (I'm going to pimp her site!) Creative Creations then I went to another site and got him an awesome tart burner, it has eagles on both sides of it! Of course I need to go buy him a bag of tea light candles and put those in his latest care package so hopefully they'll get there the same time or before his burner and tarts arrive! This way his room can smell nice. Obviously he will have to remember to blow out the candle when he leaves his room or goes to sleep, but that's anyone you know! A lot of their rooms stink, because of those boots (they don't breath well at all and the heavy socks they have to wear) let me just tell you those feet and boots do NOT smell good and I've got nearly 9 yrs of marriage and smelling them to attest to! LOL
He's still waiting on his Christmas package from us to show up, but hopefully by this weekend it'll be there, as long as it's there before Christmas. I know he was really wanting to decorate his room up for Christmas, so I hope it gets there and gives him a few days before Christmas to do that.
The boys and I are doing good. I have to admit I'm looking forward to Christmas, it will not be the same without Chad, but we're focusing on Jesus and the true reason for us to celebrate this day and how can we not find happiness when we focus on our Lord and Savior?
Well...this is a short entry. My boys are up and it's crafts time!
PS To everyone who's been asking me what tarts are...go to the link that's on here and check them out for yourself! Here's a link to tart burners: Serenity Scents and More
I've bought a burner from her in the past, she has them for really great prices. I got Chad's burner from : Aurora's Kisses althoughthe one I bought is no longer on there because I got the only one that was available and she quickly pulled it down or has a program on her site that takes the pictures down as soon as it's sold! I'm going to have Chad take a picture of his burner when he gets it to show you all! I personally prefer tarts over candles!
