I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas. We sure did. It was quiet, filled with joy and memories. Some of the kids are at the age where Christmas is so magical and full of wonder. On the other hand our oldest two know about the secret of what mommy and daddy do every year on Christmas Eve and now enjoy keeping the magic alive for their little siblings.
The past couple of weeks have been full of baking, shopping, visiting with good friends, and making plans for our future. We know that lots of changes are coming to our family in the coming year and the more we plan for it the easier it should be. Nothing is set in stone, going along the wonderful Marine Corps saying “hurry up and wait”. And along those lines some things got messed up so we are having to get it corrected before we can make plans… meaning more waiting. Regardless we do know that a cross-country move is inevitable and have been trying to come up with a few different timelines to hopefully help us be prepared when the time comes.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Years!
