Fun idea! I'll try to do that soon. Will y'all be in MI for Christmas? If so, maybe we can try to see you. We'll be in the Lansing area (Okemos) visiting Brad's parents. I'm impressed that you're so on top of things-- packing so far in advance! I hope you make a good profit on your house, with all the updates you've done. :)
