Christmas 2001 was our last Christmas in the Army and at El Paso, TX. This was one of the few Christmas Days we spent alone as a family. The distance between our home and our family made it difficult to be with anyone for the holidays. We attended the Christmas party for my office. On Christmas day, we had a quite day as a family. Brian and Aaron made out with a lot of neat toys. Susan got an imported leather jacket from Mexico! Mike got the two DVDs he had been wanting for a long time, Pearl Harbor and Saving Private Ryan. To the right is a photograph of Brian and Aaron on Santa’s lap at the local mall. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.
