Packing for a moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For anyone who is reading this, you might have got a moving company in Wichita Falls arranged and are moving through the holidays. And if you're not moving "back" home, this may be the hardest conceivable time of the year to pack up your house and go live some other place. There is no hesitation this isn't the way you thought you'd spend your winter holiday or Thanksgiving, yet here you are--may as well make the best of it. Listed here are several tips to helping you through a holiday move.

Set Up A Tree. Or 2.

Your house is a mess with moving materials anyhow, so why don't you set up a tree and hang stockings by the fire and a wreath on your front door? If you end up with a live tree, who cares about dropped needles? You're moving anyway. Get the children involved with decorating and go all the way --leave no branch undecorated. If you've not done any shopping yet, wrap empty containers using the previous year's leftover wrapping paper and take a lot of pictures. Come up with a playlist of everybody's most loved Christmas tracks and blast it whilst you deck the halls.

For those who have youngsters, wrap some of their items and place them under the early tree as a surprise. Big kids and spouses will appreciate this touch as well.

Bonus--you'll realize which strands of lights work before you get to your new house.

Host a Friendsgiving

Should your Thanksgiving resembles an anonymous meal at a stop on the interstate, have an early special event. Friendsgiving is a newer trend in which you commemorate with neighbors and friends, hence how about a farewell meal prior to leaving? Ask a close buddy to host for you and cook the dinner together--this is an excellent opportunity to share dishes. Do not miss any traditions--play cards, watch a game (there is always on demand, if required) go look at lights, or perhaps go shopping at midnight--there are numerous 24-hour retail shops to be able to uphold that tradition, and you will be less likely to get trampled.

Once more, there exists a bonus--the silver's now polished.

Make Embellishing Your New Home A Top Priority

Once you arrive at your new residence in Wichita Falls, don't pass "Go" with the decorating boxes and bins--have the moving company team set them right in the family room where you're putting up your tree. Then, go at it--trim the tree, hang the stockings, and light up the night--you can unpack your closets any time. You will have already put together that holiday song collection, switch it on and sing it out--it offers a nice cross over from the previous home to your new one.

Begin New Traditions to Keep the Magic Alive for Children

Moving to Wichita Falls is hard for the whole family, but it can take a toll on kids more than adults. You've had exposure to new places, and many children have not. It's important to maintain as many traditions as you can, but in addition to begin some new ones. Here are some ideas to get you going.

· Take advantage of new weather conditions --hike, sled, swim, or drive to the seashore. Show your children some great benefits of their new locale with a few new activities.

· Via the internet, find out exactly where the best Santa Claus is, the neatest light displays, as well as other area traditions, are and make a evening of it.

· Also, using google, find special activities--concerts, plays, live Nativity displays, parades, and New Year's Eve happenings. A lot of towns coordinate family-friendly events for New Year's, where the ball drops around nine o'clock and there's no shortage of activities for your kids.

· Accept your inner tacky--if you have always gone right past the blow-up sleighs and reindeer, no matter how hard your youngsters plead, this might be the time to let it go and buy whatever yard ornaments your kids want. If that means light-up angels alongside a snow globe as well as the Grinch, get out your pump and spotlights and simply abandon Martha Stewart this year. Here is a secret--10 years from now you may be heartbroken if those blow-up characters break.

Organizing a holiday move to Wichita Falls doesn't have to be the hardest thing ever; concentrate on your family members, the season and your traditions--it will be a sure method to help you fake it until you make it.
