Our Happy Halloween

We did not decorate or do much to celebrate Halloween since everything is packed and ready to go.  I splurged and got a cute new autumn tablecloth, but otherwise we were very uncelebratory this year. 
However, we did find out that shopping that night is AMAZING!  All the stores were empty, and we made the rounds to Sam's Club, Costco, 2 Wal-mart's and Home Deopt to purchase boxes and packing supplies.  Choke. Gasp. Cough. Weep.  It's an ugly way to spend money, but we want our stuff to get across three states safely.

On a brighter note, how adorable are these trick~or~treaters?

It's Been Awhile

It has been a crazy summer and fall for us, finding out by accident our rental home was being sold out from under us a year earlier than planned.  Everything has truly worked out for the best, however, and we truly feel the Lord's hand guiding us through this crazy process of retirement and purchasing a new home in Cedar City, Utah.

Timing is usually not our friend when it comes to real estate.  We usually buy high and sell low!  This time, we have been blessed with an affordable home in a beautiful place at a low interest rate. We are grateful.

I am going to be better at updating the blog so we can stay in better touch!
