The Twelve Days of Air Force Christmas

I really felt like I owed myself, and you my loyal readers, a goofier, happier Christmas post. Having read Elmo’s version of The Twelve Days of Christmas 87 billion times until I have it memorized, I decided that perhaps this song could lend itself to yet other genres. This seems especially appropriate considering that Josh has been gone a total of 8 months this year, and my nerves actually are quite shot.

So, with very little ado, here is my version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. I’m going to save some space by just typing up the last verse. You can fill in the blanks.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... 
12 nerves a-frayin’ 

11 flight suits drying 

10 year commitment 

9 PCS-es 
8 German coo-coos 

7 minute phone calls 

6 rugs from Turkey 

5 tax free months 

4 month deployments 

3 cute kids 

2 week long trips 

And a spouse flying C-17s! 

We’re very thankful to be together as a family this year. I know that not everyone has that luxury and to you I wish a very merry whenever-you-manage-Christmas-together. We’ve all been there, and it teaches us that dates are much less important than the spirit of the day.

Merry Christmas!


Please be kind.
