We've spent a lot of time this week, watching You tube videos on places to visit in the Southwest next summer. Somehow I thought it would help warm us up, but no dice.
I've also been toying with the idea of learning how to shoot video and edit in I-Movie. Dave also caught the bug, so hopefully by next year, we'll be embedding video into this website. I'll never stop taking pictures, but so many places we visit deserve the overseeing images of a video.
In the meantime, we're getting ready for my mom's visit, who arrives this Thursday. She's looking forward to visiting the German towns in the area and seeing a German-style Christmas Market. She'll be here over Thanksgiving, so it'll be a fun-filled couple of weeks.
After her visit ends on the 27th, we'll be busy packing up to head to Mission on Dec 1. Mission will be our winter home until the end of March when we hit the road again. Mission is a good-sized town with all the amenities we need and want. If Mission doesn't have it, then MacAllen will. It'll be a pleasant change to have lots of stores at my fingertips.
And, in celebration of spending Christmas in Texas, we bought a new Christmas tree to sit on our dash. It's a pre-lit, flocked tree and we're looking forward to decorating it once we get to Mission.
