You know who you are

I just have to send a shout out to this person. I hope this person figures out that I am talking about them :) Anyway, I am having a terrible time potty training Noah and I am about to pull my hair out. This person yesterday only had a couple of sentences to say to me about the matter but it definitely helped. So if you are reading this, thanks. I needed some encouragement.

Moving in is 8 days away!!!! No one knows how bad I need to get into our house. Our little wannabe townhome is so not cutting it.

Thanksgiving was fun. I am getting pics from my friend Regi, the one who grew the turkey they were going to serve! Love it. We went to the Great Alaska Shootout and watched Texas Tech and Gonzaga play.

I am actually getting some Christmas shopping done. All the snow melted here and I am sad to see it go. It is unusually warm and the snow is staying away. I think we jinxed the place. I have awesome photos to post when I actually can work from my own computer.

I am currently typing this from a local community center where the kids can play. Anyway, 8 days, 8 days.

Prepare yourself, the posts are going to be massive when I get setup at home. So much to tell.

In the car

Here we are once again in the car, for a quick blog update.

On Mon we signed the papers for a house! YEAH! We move in on Dec 7. So Thanksgiving is in the TLF, but Christmas will be in our HOME, among a zillion boxes, but in a home, with our stuff. I have met a lot of the spouses here and they seem really nice. My fav so far is a gal names Regi, who actually has her Thanksgiving bird in her backyard. They have given their turkey a name, oh yes, and will be having her on the table in a little over a week. I love meeting new people.
We have had a 7 inches of snow. Makes for interesting driving. Especially for me, who grew up in the south, and has ZERO experience driving in this winter wonderland.
Ok, Caleb is having a fit and we have to drive back to our TLF. We get internet in our home in 4 weeks! Will post again as soon as I can. Oh, and if you have emailed me, I am not ignoring you. It just stinks having to sit in the car with the kids screaming trying to check email and blog. Love you all! Updates soon. Oh, and the kids are doing great. They LOVE LOVE the snow. Just imagine the kid from Christmas story who looks like a star! Love it! Happy Thanksgiving yall!
