We Have a Date!

Well, we finally got a start date for Michael's new job.  He will be starting on January 3rd.  Wow!  Nothing like waiting, waiting, waiting and then BOOM!  Now it's crunch time (and Christmas time).  We have about 3 1/2 weeks before we leave.  During that time we will have 6 basketball games, several practices, 4 class Christmas parties, one church Christmas party, a gingerbread house making party, Christmas, and lots of other things to go along with it.  Michael is super busy at work and I will be super busy at home.  It will be good though.  The kids are excited to have a date and time frame.  We actually let them choose the date.  Halliburton said we could start either the 3rd or the 10th.  The kids chose the 3rd so they could start school with the other kids after Christmas break.  We are also in the process of trying to buy our first home.  It isn't our dream home by any means but it is cheaper to buy a house (especially this one) than to rent.  Hopefully all goes well with it.  We will have to live in my parents basement for a month or so, but that will be fine.  Anyways, that's our news for the day!  Hopefully things will keep moving along!
