Christmas Eve Surprise

24 Dec

This morning we received our air freight shipment: five large boxes of essential items to begin setting up our household. The rest of our stuff will arrive by ship sometime in January, we hope. It’s been so long since we had this stuff packed up that unpacking the boxes  is almost like Christmas. Oh yeah! There’s my favorite shampoo. Yes! My pasta pot!! We can have spaghetti and meatballs after all for Christmas dinner. To add to the holiday atmosphere, Baxter and Lulu have been having fun playing around with the packing paper and jumping into the empty boxes.

We also met our next door neighbor. I believe she’s Israeli (she speaks very good English with an accent) but already I forget her name. Her husband is an American and they have four children and a dog. We’re already well acquainted with their dog, a cute little scruffy mutt who came from the shelter.
