Air Force JR ROTC Ball

Scott went to the Air Force JR ROTC Ball tonight. He took his friend Emily. They were both so cute and a bit nervous. This was the first time either of them had gone to an event like this. I know they will have a great time because they enjoy each others company so much!

"Empty House"

I had a request for pictures to be posted of the house empty, but realized when that happens the computer will be on a truck going away. So I'll post some of a sort of empty house!

The Call

I wrote this post once already but the computer froze before I could post it!! Ugh!!

Anyway we got the final job offer call and we are really , truly moving!!!! We are getting more pay than we expected and they are paying us a moving allowance the will even help in getting our stuff OUT of storage!
I almost can't believe it is true, but all I have to do is look at my house!! Alot of the furniture is gone and some of the stuff is packed. Tha packers come on the 19th and they load the truck on the 20th. We hope to pull put of here on the 22nd!

My blog friends have been talking about the coming Christmas celebrations and what they would like to do. There are alot of things I would like to do but this year we are going to be in a car traveling HOME to the beautiful NW! That is our Christmas present! I have told the kids we could do some shopping after we get there. Maybe hit the after Christmas sales! I may even decorate a little.

We will be seeing dear friends and family along the way. Christmas Eve we will be in Memphis ,TN visiting some special friends and Christmas evening we will arrive in OKC, OK at my cousin Joyces. Both famlies we have not seen in a long time! I know it will be a special time!!

We are just soooo excited!!!!! The "topper" for all this excitement would be if our house would just sell!! It could still happen!

Update from the Berry Patch

I thought it was about time to give you all an update about what is going on around here!!! We are STILL waiting on the final paper work, but John got a civilian job back in our home state of Washington!!! We are VERY excited and eagerly waiting for the call from HR and the last paper work to fill out. The CALL came today but we were not home!! Ugh!!! John took me to lunch and then we waited in the car line to pick up our kids from school. They actuallly tried the home ph 3 times but did not call the cell phone number John had provided. Anyway when we got home John tried to call back and discovered the lady he needs to talk to had to go home suddenly because of possible flooding in the area. The NW is having pretty bad weather at the moment! SO if she can get to work tomorrow John should be in touch with her. John will be the Chief of Security for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and Everett Naval Air Station. We will live in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island. I will only be about an hour from Cara!!! AND in the same state with the majority of our family!!

As soon as everything is finalized John will fly to WA and hopefully start work on the 10th. He will then fly back on the 20th to drive us home to WA!!! While he is gone the movers will come . He always seems to "miss out" on that part, but he has been doing alot to help me get ready this time!

John and I got to go to a wonderful Christmas party Friday night. Enjoy the pics!!
