Merry Christmas at the hangar!
Today was our squadron's Christmas party for the kids! We decided to have it in the hangar to let the kids feel a bit closer to their deployed parent for a few hours... they had a blast and ate the required amount of sugar!
Pulling up to the squadron...
Posing again! The place is a ghost town since they are deployed!
I'm not sure what's behind the locked door, but since hubby was promoted to First Class, he is now a member of the 1st Class Mess... so what goes on in there? LOL
Upon walking into the hangar, we were overcome by the smell of JP-5 in the air, and for once, instead of cursing that smell and demanding hubby leaves his clothes and boots out on the porch, the smell made us miss him more!
Plenty of "trip and bust your teeth out" floor to run on!

when was the last time you told your kids, "hey, stay this side of the bombs, okay?" or... "we don't pet the bombs sweetie..." LOL
Luckily the hangar doors were closed keeping it plenty warm inside, but were open a crack so the kids could keep a lookout for Santa. Santa always arrives in a SuperHornet instead of a sleigh 'round these parts, we do it Navy Style!
Kids craft table, making signs for homecoming
Yep, even Navy kids require vast amounts of sugar during the holidays!
mecca for little boys in here...
SO MUCH FOOD!
Santa has arrived! Kids anxiously awaiting to see what's in his bag!
Saved the best for last...
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE HANGAR OF VFA-32!
See why I'm not getting anything done around here? Too busy! They had a great time though, I just can't wait until their bedtime tonight, I've got stuff to DO!
