Ode to Moving

Moving

Ode to Moving
By Bryce

Living out of boxes, slowly settling in
Glad this journey is over and a new one begins.

Unpacking, searching, Eureka!
How did we get so much stuff?
Pods, pizza and packing tape
I’ve had quite enough.

As we settle in and relax
We hope you’ll join us for a visit
And come make some memories
That is the point isn’t it?

Looking forward to your company, good times and cheer
But don’t wait to long because I really need a beer.

Christmas Tree Hunting

Posted by Bryce Wend on December 3, 2011

Well there are some advantages of having ALL of our Christmas stuff stored away in a POD while we look for our next home!  This year we had the opportunity to get a live tree instead of putting up our artificial tree.  I thought we should make an event of it since it won’t likely be an annual tradition for us. 

We went up to Frosty’s Christmas Tree farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains with the family to find the perfect tree for our apartment.

I just love this photos because all though it looks totally posed, neither of these guys had a clue I was going to snap this shot up.  The were very serious in the hunt for the perfect tree.

This is it!

And once it was found, it had to be cut down of course!

Handsome husband.

Our family.

And the whole gang at Frosty’s.

Happy holidays!
