We've finally made it!
This was an incredibly long, drawn-out move.
We wanted to
If a thousand words is still the worth of a picture, and since I'm feeling a little word-poor at the moment, how about we play catch-up with a slide show?
November was when this move really started, well, moving.
Midway through the month we started our 'last hurrah' tradition.
Usually before we move everyone gets to choose their fav place (or two) to visit one last time.
|Near Turquoise Lake|
|One of the many beautiful parks in CS|
|Farmer's market in old city|
|Fav book store|
|Joey's fav New York style pizza|
|Mountain Shadows restaurant in old downtown.|
Best breakfast in the Springs!
|Crave Burger! Look at the plates and you'll|
know why we only went once in two years.
|Marigold's. Our absolute favorite.|
|Garden of The God's|

Monday of Thanksgiving week, movers team 1 packed and loaded everything that would be stored stateside.
Tuesday, movers team 2 came to pack everything else.
Wednesday, movers team 'hey-let's-drop-the-flat-screen' came to load the truck.
|Buddy didn't like them carting off all his stuff!|
Wednesday night and Thursday morning, we cleaned. That's ok though ...
|We had Thanksgiving dinner downtown!|
|In the first of many hotel rooms.|
|Not exactly turkey, but yummy none-the-less!|
We hit the road and headed to Arkansas! It had been five years since we'd been home for Christmas, so we were all excited.
|We said goodbye ...|
|to our beautiful view of the Continental Divide.|
|Shelby tumbleweed wrangling in Dodge City.|
|all of us!|
|Misty, moisty, morning somewhere in the Heartland.|
|... definitely gets you in the Christmas spirit.|
|A trip to Eureka Springs.|
|A week at Table Rock Lake in Branson.|
|We joined FBC!|
We'll be watching online, of course.
|Bo was saved 7 yrs ago. She decided it was time|
to conquer those nerves and be baptized -
by Poppy, of course!
|Our sweet "baby". So happy!|
Just a few other things thrown in for fun -
|Shelby gave us a scare!|
|We had Harry Potter theme night!|
|Helena Ravenclaw was there, along with a|
|We weren't sure when we'd have another...|
|so we made it a good one with a movie marathon!|
|We girls each got a new do. I asked for a "soft wave"|
but came out with this hot mess. Hellooo '80's!
|to this adorable 'Pixie' cut!|
|We had to get her something special ...|
|Woohoo! Trust me, if this 40-something had to go three years |
without seeing her parents every day or so,
there would be major 'weeping and gnashing of teeth'.
Oh yeah! You know it! Face Time is a gift from God!
Well I think that's plenty for now. I'll share more soon.
Thanks again for all of your prayers, notes, and calls.
*About Bo - She's ok. Nothing life threatening. (Dizziness, Fainting, Foggy Brain) But we're still trying to figure out what's up with our sweet girl. She's had a few appointments since arriving here. They've checked blood, heart, brain...
Good docs and lots of prayer. We have faith she'll be good as new very soon!
