The blog has been neglected for the past few weeks/months...sorry friends and family. Soon enough we will be settled in Florida, and I will have nothing else to do but update y'all on our lives. Yet, for now, we are surviving until Christmas break.
We enjoyed Thanksgiving this year with friends in St Louis. We "hosted" Thanksgiving at our church's youth house for about 14 friends. Marty did a wonderful job roasting the turkey all day, and I fixed a mixed berry cobbler and peanut butter pie. Sadly, I did not take my camera out once to document the festivities. I am trying to get better at that. I fear we will leave St Louis with no pictures of our time here or our friends!
We have a busy end to our time here, yet it looks like it will be a lot of fun. We are beginning to sell some things that we don't want to make the move with us, and this transition is beginning to feel more real. Our second bedroom is currently the moving room, lots of Marty's school books are packed and ready to go into his office at SRPC. I guess it is time to move on to some of the bigger items. We have not committed to a place to live yet, so it looks like we will be staying with a generous family until we find a more permanent home. This makes packing a little more challenging.
I would love to say that over Thanksgiving break we packed and cleaned and were super productive...yet that would be a lie. We spent lots of time relaxing, watching abc family holiday movies and White Christmas (best all time Christmas movie), and did some online shopping. I think we are both refreshed and ready to tackle our last 4 weeks in STL.
