Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday dear Jesus.
Happy Birthday to you!
I hope that you all have been reflecting on Christ's birth and feeling the warmth that He has provided to you through the love of your family.
Love to you all!

*A close up of the new additions. We had the license plate for awhile. I randomly found it in the shed (don't have a clue why it was out there) and put it on the wall last week. The Ammunition Far Side sticker fills in the gap nicely that was there before. Ammunition Far Side is posted in every magazine on the ship that has live ammunition. No, our house does not have live ammunition, it's just cute!*
Adam's utter randomness always makes me laugh and puts a smile on my face! :D
If you are asking yourself, man this room looks plain. I would laugh and say, "I just got the bed and the comforter, and it took me forever just to do that, do you think I wanted to deal with decorations too??!!??" Really I would say that. Half of the problem is that half of the room has my craft/sewing table, desk, and filing cabinet, which rests against the wall with the window. I'm thinking that I will decorate the room with California memorabilia. I have been searching at antique shops up here for some, and I come out of luck every time. I'm gonna do some searching around when I visit back home, in a week and a half!!
Well, now that I have somewhat dealt with this spare bedroom, and have had some visitors stay in it and give it a whirl, the bedding is all washed and ready for my next visitors (of course after I get back from visiting Cali)!!! You can stay in the Zickefoose suite any time! Just call ahead for reservations! I'll need about a day max-30 minutes at least notice. If your're extra special, just surprise me! :D

The rest of his care package consisted of other "favorite items" of his, like Propel Packets, Mike & Ikes, and of course pictures.
I also wanted to do something special for a Sailor who hadn't gotten much mail. So I asked Adam for a list of names, and chose one on the list at random, and gave the others to my mom and grandma who had items donated to them from church, work, and my mom's class. We were surprised at how much was donated! It was so nice to see people care for our military! I asked Adam for some ideas, but then came up with most of this on my own. I also made it complete with an encouraging note and a bible verse. I did a very simple one, since I didn't want to spend too much money. I was very surprised to hear from Adam that the guy had received my package 2 weeks ago and LOVED it. He needed some of the personal items I sent, and also loved the encouraging note I sent. He said that other guys asked why I hadn't sent them something. That delighted me, but maybe another time!
*It was scrumpcious!*
