For Aarons first Christmas we went to California

They had just moved to Ford Ord and were living on base at VIP3.
Aaron was 9 months old and we had a very Charlie Brown tree.

For the summer we went to Alaska so that we could work.
Dane sold cars and I worked at a mortgage company,
we saved enough money so that neither of us had to work
during the school year.
