We moved here without a home to move into, so for our first week we lived in a hotel. This hotel is pretty cool though because it's on Santa Claus Lane. We can say we lived there once.
Benji wasn't supposed to start work right away, but the dentist he works for had an emergency appendectomy, so Benji started only a few days after moving.
The hotel room looked like home with all the stuffed animals lined up in the window.
A few days after moving here we went and watched at the finish line of the Iron Dog. It is a snow machine race.
Then we ate at the Fudge Pot. Good chowder and sandwiches!
There were a few things to get used to. One of them is plugging vehicles in. It gets so cold here you have to plug in so your car stays warm.
The kids slept soundly in the hotel.
It's fun to live in a place called North Pole. Some businesses stay Christmasy all year long. And why not!? I think I'm going to decorate for Christmas this year and never take the decorations down ;)
After a week of the hotel we found our house and moved in! This is where we will be renting for awhile. We are wanting to buy a house by the fall, but I love this house and wouldn't mind waiting to buy it. We'll see.
