Two years—A very eventful two years at that—Married, Cadet, Pilot, Thomasville, Meridian, Overseas—Things moving right along.—
Dec. 25, ’44
I was rudely interrupted last nite Honey—We had to turn the lights out—Guess they figgered they would ruin our Christmas Eve but they didn’t do much.
It is now 6:00 A.M.—early isn’t it?—I was going to fly but my plane is “out” this morning—I personally believe it is the crew chief who is out—Ha.
Besides I had to get up early and sneak a look at “our Christmas tree”—
I certainly would like to be with you at this time (I wouldn’t be writing letters) I mean—how much happier we would be

This is one time of the year I like—I reckon Christmas time will always mean a lot to me—I got one present that “just won’t wait” (A.C. slang.) Never grows old—Will always be new to me—You will always be a Christmas Gift, only the kind one doesn’t forget by New Years.
It is very pleasant here this morning, the sky is clear and is fairly cool at the moment—I hope it is cold back there, snow and all that.—you probably have a tree, presents, I would be surprised if you were running around in your Night Gown—What am I saying, or did you go to church.—Well—what ever you are doing—I sincerely hope you are having a good time and happy too.
I Love You
