Snowman2 My Merry Christmas Newbie...

Hello Christmas Family,
My name is Gina Tigue and I am so thrilled that a friend found your site and told me about you. I live in South Carolina and am a mom of 5. I have a 21 year old Marine (Rusty) who is stationed in Japan, a 20 year old Sailor (Ileana) who just deployed to meet up with her ship (the U.S.S. Nimitz) somewhere in the Red Sea area, a 17 year old high school senior, Zachary, who has already sign into the Marines and will leave right after graduation in May and 4 year old boy/girl twins- Pheonix and Tierney. We have two dogs, Pumpkin and Mocca. They keep us busy! I absolutely LOVE Christmas and this site is the best thing yet. I love knowing there are others out there who are just as excited about it as I am (my husband does not share this love with me. lol )and having a place to go and see others sharing about their love of the holiday is a great thing. I look forward to getting better acquainted with all of you and MMC and am sooo ready for the holidays..
