Set up our Christmas tree
Said goodbye, gave grandparents hugs!
Austin was able to open up his gift.
I put Austins gift on layaway I was planning on picking it up on black Friday when I was going to go back in and do a price match. I then started to wonder if maybe the manager would give me the Black Friday price a week early so I could have Austin open it before he left. I took in his orders showing that he was in fact leaving the Monday before thanksgiving and the store manager told me he would!! So Austin was able to open his gift and take it with him..
When Chris was in the completion for golds gym one of the gifts was a X box, Austin has bought so many games but then when it was time for him to leave he had no X-Box we kept looking for a used one. but for $20 more we were able to buy a new one for him. When he gets to Korea he will have to purchase a TV but we have been told they have great prices there on TV's.
Austin plane left at 6:05 in the morning so we were all at the airport at 4:00 it is so hard to walk away from your child. knowing it will be some time before we get to see him again. Parents with children going on a mission or in the military understand the many emotions that go through you..
