We loaded a borrowed horsetrailer with pots and pans, sheets, and an overnight bag along with an assortment of cardboard boxes I have spent the last 3 weeks packing up and we headed west.
We thought it a good idea to get a jump on moving to our new home in Ruidoso and besides just being a good idea, we’re too excited not to get a headstart.
As J-dub and I carried in box after box in the dark, our niece Ash and our near 11 month old EK were busy too.
Even though it’s already the 23rd of December, and even though we won’t be here for Christmas day, but because it’s EK’s first one and because it’s the good and proper thing to do in a new house in December, they set about putting up the Christmas tree.
Some of the lights wouldn’t light, and it’s bare on the bottom where EK can reach.
But it puts a smile on my face, as does the sweet girls who worked on it.
