'Merry Christmas baby'
I would like to tell my husband Merry Christmas! This will be his first Christmas away from me in 10 years, I lost grandmother over the summer, him being away is going to be especially difficult this year for me and our 2 kids. He was deployed June 3rd, 2007 to Iraq and is expected to return July 2008.
