Moving Day - Sort Of!

Many of our neighbors are spending this pleasant November Saturday packing their trucks, vans and cars with their personal belongings to move to their new house about a block from where they currently live. It's a bittersweet day for me because it's the reality that our neighborhood as it is will no longer exist and we'll soon be moving out of our very first military post house. It's also the first single family home our little family of 4 has ever lived in. It's a great day because it's the beginning of the day we've all been waiting for - getting to move into our NEW houses! We've all been looking forward to moving since we moved into these houses. Unless there's a surprise letter in our mailbox today, we won't be moving until December. According to our housing rep, we're right on the cutoff line of who will move in this phase. It just depended on how many 3 and 4 bedroom houses were available.

I told Jake I've had visions of decorating this house with all my Christmas decorations and just putting my already decorated tree on the back of a truck and taking it across the street to the new house. He didn't like that idea so I guess I'll just leave my Christmas tree up until Maverick's birthday so that we can fully enjoy the work it is to get all the decorations out! We could have Maverick a snowman birthday and the house would already be decorated. Not a bad idea at all! I'll have to start looking for snowman plates and cups. Oooh, even better maybe I can find some on clearance after Christmas.

In other news, we're in the process of finding out where we're going after Fort Bliss. I may have mentioned once before that Jake's current battery is folding some time between February and April. We've been in discussions for weeks about what we would do next. Our favorite option is to try to get another assignment here at Fort Bliss, but we're not sure if there'll be a position available here. We have some other options. Anyone who knows anything about the military knows that nothing is ever in stone and there are no definites. Pray that we'll be open to where the Lord may need us to be next, whether that's here or there, wherever there may be! As most of you know we didn't want to come to El Paso, but have grown to love it here. If we can like El Paso, I have a feeling we can like most anywhere.

I can't believe I am saying this but I hope you get to stay there for a while. It's a nice place and you are happy there and that is most important.

I love you all!!!

I'm not going to be as nice as GG. I hope they want a new army base in WV and send you there to wait for it to be built. LOL
