Christmas dinner came to Bellevue a little early for Kim Roney and her sons.
And Santa came almost two weeks ahead of schedule, with presents exchanged on Dec. 13.
But the family was not rushing the season. They were just fitting everything in before Josh, 24, and Mark, 22 had to report back to their ships, Josh to the USS George Washington in Yokosuka, Japan, and Mark to the USS Enterprise in Norfolk, VA.
The family last spent time together in August, 2008, just before Josh deployed to Japan.
