Merry Christmas!

It turned out to be a white Christmas this year. Here we are on the farm, 5 inches of snow so far! They are calling for another 4-8 inches. Time to get the snow disks out and go sledding!!

The trees are getting heavy with snow and coming down on the trailer!

On to the good stuff! The kids made out pretty good this year, I think they have enough Lego’s now to build us a new house!

Robbie scored big! 50 Bucks!!

HEY Waterboy, You’re fired!

Amazon gave us our walking papers, December 17th is our last official day as Elves! We will have to spend the rest of the year as normal people. :) No more 11 hour days, working thru the night. It’ll be tough, but we’ll manage. Here are a few photos of where we’ve been living the last 2 months at Indian Ridge campground. We’ll miss the free pool table and basketball court, but not the weather! It’s been below average cold this year, lows in the single digits, highs in the 20’s and 35 mph wind gusts have almost frozen everything we own. The trailer is sucking down propane like hot chocolate.

Next stop Norfolk, Virginia! Home for the holidays, I can almost smell the Smithfield Ham cooking. Just a short 650 mile drive (dang) and we’re there! To borrow another line from Jerry Reed, the only thing better than a good ham dinner is two good ham dinners!

Happy Holidays! That means Merry Christmas!

With all the snow we've been doing some down hill sledding

Amazon Elves, Campbellsville Kentucky

We’ve been working at for 5 weeks now. The fulfillment center is huge! The building is about a mile long and has 4 floors inside for storing everything and anything you can order off the internet. Jane & I work as stowers, once a product is received we take it and try and find a place to store it. As soon as we stow it, it becomes available online. Amazon has 1200 regular employees and starting in October thru December they hire on an additional 3000 employees, AKA Amazon Elves! We obviously can’t take pictures of the inside, but this place would put Santa's workshop to shame!

All the trucks waiting to be unloaded
