A GOLD Christmas....

Whoo Hoo..... Looks like we are going to have a GOLD Christmas this year!!!!! Are you scratching your head, trying to figure out what I mean? Do I mean gold lights, gold ornaments, gold gifts???? NONE of them.....

We are having a GOLD Christmas because my dearly beloved, hunk of adoring hubby was PROMOTED!!!! Whooooo Hoooooo!!!!

Yep it is official..... hubby is now MAJOR McDonald!!!! (Man that just sounds strange!!! He has been CPT Mac for sooo long in my eyes.... Major Mac??? Nah - Maybe MAJOR pain in the rump! Bahahaha)

I am just soooo stinking proud of him I can't stand it!!!!! He has opted out of a "formal" ceremony (he'd rather poke his eye out with a sharp stick!!!) - so I think I will be traveling to the unit next week so they can pin him!!!!

He has been doing a Major's job for over a year now... and he totally deserves this promotion! I am just soooo sooo sooo proud!

I have to read (well type) to you the first item on the "official" memo - for those of you that are not in the military - so you can understand JUST how proud - and WHY I am so proud......

The President of the United States has reposed special trust and confidence in your patriotism, valor, fidelity and abilities. In view of these qualities and your demonstrated potential for increased responsibility, you are, therefore promoted......

Yeah that pretty much explains it all!!!!

Ok - I am off to work on my Christmas gifts..... Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's blog to be eligible for my drawing for the FREE "Twilight" book mark.... I'll be holding that drawing tomorrow!!

Until Next Time!
