We Nortons have had a lot going on recently.

Steve and I celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary in Las Vegas.  We had a blast!  Claire stayed with MiMi and PopPop in Tulsa and had a great time.

We then spent Thanksgiving in Tulsa with my family.  What a great day!  That was followed up with some fabulous Black Friday shopping, beginning at 3:30 a.m.  We got some great deals and had a wonderful time.

Then this week we leased our house in Houston.  Our tenants sound perfect – a couple in their 60s.  He is a contractor in the oil business and has been on assignment in Austria for the last year.  They have recently returned to the States and want to be near their children and grandchildren (which all live within a five mile radius of our house).  They fell in love with our house.  I’m so glad to have good renters.

We are headed back to Houston on Friday to start packing up the   remainder of our house.  We’re flying to NYC on Sunday to take Claire to see Santa at Macy’s in Herald Square.  (I can’t wait!!)  Then we’re headed back to Houston to finalize everything and have a huge garage sale.  The following Sunday (the 12th), we will load up a U-Haul and our pickup with the few things we’re keeping and will drive once again to Memphis, officially making this our home.

We’ll spend Christmas in Tulsa with my family and are really looking forward to that.  We have four little girls in our family this year with the additions of Allie and Kenley.  It’s going to be a fun Christmas!!

Steve starts 737 school in January.  He will be in Dallas for two weeks to complete this training.  Hopefully he’ll interview with Southwest in February or shortly thereafter.

Big changes are headed our way.  I keep meaning to blog, but I don’t seem to have the time to sort through all of our pictures.  I’ll keep working on them; but for now, this short note will have to do.

And for those wondering about the latest on Claire, she is 33” tall and weighs 22 lbs.  She is an absolute doll and such a joy!  She’s talking a lot more.  Now when you ask her how old she is, she will hold up one finger and scream “one!”  Then she giggles.  She loves to dance and loves to sing.  She’s very friendly and loves people.  She loves babies and animals, especially dogs.  She’s absolute perfection in my book!

It’s bedtime once again.  More as soon as I can find time to post.  So for now, nighty-night.
