It has been awhile since I've had a chance to let everyone know what we are doing. We officially moved into our house this last weekend, but don't have our household goods yet so we can't get the cable, internet, and phone hooked up at home. I've been in class since the beginning of this week and can't get on facebook even to say hi. Paige is doing great at school and will be in a Thanksgiving play next week she will be playing the part of the winter season with one other girl from her class. We have been using the library on base a lot mainly for movies, but alot of books too. We have ventured out from our house a little and found McDonalds. It is definately a little different than what we are use to back in the States but the taste is the same. I took a pic of Paige and her happy meal. They have free tickets to see Alpha and Omega so we will probably go this weekend since the movie theater is just around the corner along with a KFC, Blockbuster, and Staples. We will go see Megamind here on the base soon though. Clay Riley is adjusting well. He still fusses when I drop him off in the morning, but is fine after I leave. He has a cold right now and his nose is constantly running. He keeps me busy. Another thing about Paige she is learning Spanish in Kindergarten. I was quite impressed that they start teaching them another lanuage at such an early age. Clay Riley will more than likely be the one to develop the British accent a lot in part to the fact that several of his teachers at the CDC are British. I can wait until he starts talking more. Me I'm doing okay miss my hubby, family and friends very much ya'll are on my mind a lot especially this month. We will be going with the church group to London on Thanksgiving to one of the cathedrals. I'm super excited to see London. My overall assessment of England: Don't like the weather but can get over that, love just driving and peeking out the window at all the sights. Patty as a fellow photographer you would love it here the entire place is just waiting to be photographed. Shana you would love Tesco or rather Skylie would love it they have awesome cute girl clothes. Well I gotta go pick up the kids will write when I can.

Catching Up With An Old Friend

Today we went to Mildenhall to see a friend practically an auntie to my kids. Leea was my supervisor at Altus and has been around to watch both of my kids. Paige adores her. We went to her house and then off to a bazaar on the base she is at. It  was awesome a little pricey, but well worth it. Leea treated us to a lot. Paige has developed a lot more courage. She tried the bungee attached to a trampoline. I took pics. She wanted to do it again. WOW!! She has grown leaps and bounds. I'm becoming quite good at making it from point A to point B. Leea got Paige a beautiful fairy dress and Toy Story 3 for both of the kids. She is watching as I type. I can't wait to have visitors it was really nice to see a familiar face today and have a great time with the kids. I think I'm going to like this place!!!

Our New Home!!!

We found a house. It is awesome. The entire place is wonderful. The landlord and his wife seem really nice too. The gardening is included in the rent which means no mowing or trimming hedges for me. It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The neighbeorhood is really nice as well. We have our own private drive and only have to share it with two other houses. Me and paige went and looked it over again today while the painter was there. She is so excited her room is painted purple, her favorite color. We haven't ventured out too much yet however we found out (cause a certain little girl couldn't hold it) that we are about a mile away from the UK's version of Walmart but better (It has an escalator in it). It is also close to a movie theater and McDonalds. Paige is thrilled. We are going to start attending church here on the base and are already scheduled to go with them to London to St Pauls cathedral on Thanksgiving. It is going to be great. I made a friend who wants to go with us to Legoland when we decide to go. We have a train station close by that you can ride into London about an hour ride into London and they do the big bus tour for like $50 for all three of us just for the bus ride not sure about the train ride. Things are really starting to come together. No such luck on the passports, but am in the process of starting over to get new ones. That may mean we won't get to come home for Christmas, but you never know. I think we are going to like it here even more once Doug gets here. Well I took some pics of the house hope you all like. Start getting those passports ready we want lots of visitors.
