For the love of all material things...

We can't even express how happy we are to have our things. Yeah, they are material things but we were without them for 3 months. I couldn't wait for the movers to come at the beginning of November to take everything away. I was excited to live the simple life for awhile, to do without the material things. But it feels so good to have our stuff!

We are nearly done arranging and organizing the house. It has been so comfortable to sleep in our own bed and Macen has an new bedroom set he is very happy with. I'll get pics posted of his room later. James was happy to have his big tv back. We have moved 4 times in the last 4 1/2 years so I have not had any desire to put much on the walls or decorate our houses. But with the idea of us being here for 3 years, I am ready and excited to complete our home.
And with getting our things, we were finally able to give Macen his Christmas present from us. The pics above are Macen with his new train table. He loves trains and I started buying pieces for it last May. I was just as excited to give it to Macen and James was as excited to set it up as Macen was to get it. So you can see this was a big deal to all of us.

As it should be.

I was really disappointed when the 46 inch LCD American TV wouldn't work with the cable system here. Luckily for me I found a coaxial cable that would allow it work.
