The boys and I went to Memory Bound and cut out these Christmas lights with their die-cut machines. It went very fast with all the help!

I'm back!! I know you have missed me! (hee hee) We FINALLY are connected and things are happy and good at our house, once again. I am planning on getting you all caught up on my moving adventures in the next couple of day. Until then, this is a picture of me (extremely tired, but determined to get caught up on my important computer work!) in my new scrapping spot. My corner is a mess at this time, crowded, but I like where it is located...in the sunroom. (now if we could just get some sun!)

As I have already shared, at this time we dp not have Internet or phone. I am going into shock and the shakes have started, without the Internet, so I have taken up getting 2-3 Starbucks a day to help get the jitters under control - costly!
We have no phone, so I am using my cell phone, which I am not a good cell phone carrier. I put it down and then forget where it is or I leave it in the car. So if you call, just leave a message.
We have no mail. I changed all of that 2 weeks before the move and the mail people "never got" the info. So, now we must wait another 7-10 days. The only good part is that when we do get it, it will be tons of it and then I will feel popular!
We have no dryer. The plug-in blew up. Now I have loads of wet laundry that I will need to take to my mom's or somewhere...in town.
We do have an awesome laundry shoot. There is one in the upstairs hallway AND the kitchen wall. The boys have LOVE throwing things down the shoot. We have had to put a halt on "hard" items. Too painful on the heads.
We do have a new TV that was hung on the wall by the night we moved. We do have direct TV which was installed the next morning. We have a HUGE attached garage that is heated. We have another HUGE 4 car detached garage witch is also heated. But, I don't have a garbage disposal.
And...we do have mice (which I will refer to as little customers) that love that I don't have a garbage disposal. I will update that later, because at this time I am off to buy some really good traps.
Overall, the move went great, we are getting settled in, the boys love it and it is beginning to feel like home.
Hope to be back on by the beginning of next week. If not, I will go into work again and blog from there...the girls there understand my pain from not having a computer!

I am trying to stay ahead of the Christmas season...so I have been making list after list. Now if I DO anything on any of theses lists... Anyway, one thing I try to do is have the boys do an "activity" each day to get ready for Christmas. I made the above box last year, but it is WAY packed away and I have NO idea where it is and I don't think I had the boxes full of ideas anyway. So, I started a new idea list for the boys and I really need some help to complete the list... here is what I have so far (these are random, not in any order):
1. Make an ornament (or 2 or 3)
2. make cookies
3. write a Santa letter
4. wrap present (s)
5. make xmas cards
6. watch "Christmas Story"
7. watch "The Grinch"
8. watch "Charlie Brown Christmas"
9. watch "Polar Express"
10. Buy a Christmas book at Borders
11. make hot chocolate and read a Christmas story
12. Visit Santa
13. Camp under the xmas tree
14. Go to a holiday/Christmas show
15. make xmas chain to count down the days
16. Jolly Holiday lights
I need 8 more ideas...
I would do some snow related things, like build a snowman, but I can't count on the snow...I don't count the tree because it is put up in November...sometimes. So if you have any ideas..please share!!!
