Christening the New Home

After hours of unloading the pod and picking up some random furniture from friends and family, we're almost settled in the new house.

Yesterday, we  broke out an old favorite to play the first game here:  TWO do-or-die games of Candyland.  Not a full review of it, but the new version with a spinner instead of drawing cards feels ridiculously fast.  Maja and I played two games in what it took the DirectTV guy to reinstall some boxes, and he was lightning quick. 

With two separate bedrooms for the girls,   Bedtime has instantly become a whole lot easier.  Maja got her first "real" book from me to celebrate the move, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  At a chapter a night, we have 23 more nights of it.   I'd like to find a stand alone copy of The Marvelous Land of Oz and proceed like that through the series.  If not, I also snagged the first six books in a large anthology, but that feels a bit unwieldy for bedside reading.
