It has been a LONG time since I posted. We are getting settled in Japan. The thought of driving here makes me nauseous. Driving on the left hand side of the road seems so very unnatural. We left 100s in Arizona for 60s here. We've pulled the sweatshirts and jeans out. Come August I know it will be hot especially with no ac. We left such a wonderful family in AZ. We will miss them terribly. We have a house. It is 500 sq ft smaller than our old one plus no 2 car garage. More downsizing will be necessary when our stuff gets here which should be August or September.
How are you all?
How is it the new year is right around the corner? I will have to get used to writing 2012 on things now.
Thomas will be turning 4 on Jan 2nd. Where has the time gone?? He is looking forward to going to Peter Piper Pizza which is like Chucky Cheese. Not a huge request and we are happy to accommodate him. :) He will also be getting some new Buzz Lightyear bedding. He is a huge Buzz fan. He has 2 buzz shirts which I wash as often as possible and he wears as soon as they are washed.
Wade is turning 30 on Jan 18th. If any of you would like to send him a card please let me know. Always nice to get mail at birthdays.
We all had a wonderful Christmas. There is nothing that beats the magic of Christmas through children's eyes. We have taken the tree down and made sure the ornaments were packed well for the trip to Japan. I also tried to get rid of excess decorations.
In this upcoming year we have a couple of trips planned before going overseas. We will be going back to SD in March to see our families and drop off our dogs with my parents. They are going to take them for us as they are getting too old for an overseas trip. Sometime in April we plan on going to see my grandma in Athens, AL. We always look forward to going there.
We look forward to the changes this year holds in store for us. Change always opens up opportunity for growth.
What is in store for you in this upcoming year?
We got notification that we will be heading to Misawa, Japan in June 2012. That's seems like a way off but there is a lot of preparation. We are SO excited!!!
