Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Whew! What a busy week it's been! The girls and I flew back to New Hampshire for good last saturday, Steve showed up with the animals on sunday, I cleaned the new rental house monday and tuesday and the moving truck showed up with our stuff on wednesday. As they unloaded I was unpacking! It took me nine hours to unpack my kitchen but I can say that is the one room in the house that is completely done. The rest still have boxes here and there but we can widdle those down in the next week or so. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend Christmas Eve with my family in Massachusetts, we were missing a few cousins but it was still wonderful to be surrounded by family. The girls had a great time and made out like bandits! It was a long, late drive home so the girls hurried to get into bed so Santa could come. Steve and I were up a few more hours as we still had things to wrap! We woke up to softly falling snow and wonderful gifts and time together.

The girls have one more week off and then they start in the new school on Jan. 3rd. We were able to tour the school twice and meet the students in their classes as well as the teachers. The girls are excited, I think?

Steve is really enjoying his new job at EMS and looks forward to the day when he is no longer the "new guy". It won't take him long, he's pretty smart and can get himself up to speed pretty quickly, he jumps in head first.

Well, we look forward to visiting with everyone over the coming months and would welcome visits our way as well!

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and may your New Year be fantastic! Here are a few pictures and videos to share with you all:

A little blog happy I think!!

So I have decided to start a third blog, because apparently I don't have enough to do in my busy life! The truth is we have friends and family all over the country and some aren't on the great and powerful social network that is FB; so how are those people to see the photos or videos we post or the funny anecdotes from our crazy lives? Through this blog I hope! So I hope those that are interested will follow this blog and keep up with all our family is doing, we really want to stay connected!

So just a synopsis of what our life has been like the last few weeks; crazy! =) Steve accepted a job offer that will be taking us back to New Hampshire by Dec. 19th. We spent Thanksgiving week looking at houses and eating a traditional meal (our first in 6 years) with my mom and aunts! Steve stayed behind in NH and the girls and I are tying up loose ends here in Mo. anxiously waiting for the day when the movers come and we can all be together again in NH.

Here are a few photos from our Thanksgiving trip, enjoy and I hope you come back and visit us again!

For those of you wondering about the blog title…you must not have children! =)
