Using my mom's homemade cinnamon roll recipe, Jeff and I got up early on Christmas morning and made lots of pans of cinnamon rolls. We used foil pans, wrapped up the rolls in more foil and stacked them in our pie safes to keep them toasty warm. Then we drove on to Hunter Army Airfield. When we stopped at the main gate to show our ID cards we told the military police who were working the gate we had something for them and gave them the just-out-of-the-oven homemade cinnamon rolls. We hope they enjoyed the blessing.

We enjoyed the giving.

We also drove into Jeff's old unit who keeps a staff duty non-commissioned officer on duty and gave he and his runner another pan of the delectable cinnamon rolls. Driving off post the back way and through the back gate we stopped there also and gave them a pan of cinnamon rolls, too.

So as not to think it was just all about others and giving, we'd also made several pans for us to enjoy Christmas morning too:)
