Red Dragon Wreaths

My Red Dragon wreath for the battalion front door.

The battalion CSM's wife's wreath
I love our battalion CSM's wife.  She's pretty private so I won't name her here, but she's fantastic.  She and her husband have been a part of the battalion for over two years and will be with us through the upcoming deployment ... a fact that I am very grateful for.  She's fun, energetic, and has Soldiers' well-being in her heart.

Recently, we were together for one of the myriad of meetings and events that we attend and decided to pick up a few things at our local Wal-Mart.  While we were there, we came up with the idea of creating a couple of wreaths to hang in the battalion headquarters.  My two boys were with us so the four of us had a ball picking out all the red and gold glittery ornaments we could find.  The boys even agreed to temporarily donate the use of their stuffed red dragons to the cause.  She and I each took our goodies home and created wreaths.  When we met a few days later, we were excited to hang our wreaths on the entrance doors to the unit headquarters.

Enjoy the photos of the fruits of our labor!


  1. Aww, thanks! It was my first foray into making any kind of wreath. =)


Fabulous Remarks
