No not in Louisiana.  We're here in Red Lodge, Montana with Scott, Bevi, Ella, Unca Mike, and Jessica for a week.  Last year we did our first (and hopefully last) home exchange with Don and Becky.  They stayed at our home in Thibodaux for a week and now we are using our part of the exchange.  We flew up on Thursday, rented a couple cars and drove from Billings to Red Lodge.
Beautiful scenery and snow everywhere.  Friday we played in the snow at the house, Ella's first snow.
Then yesterday the kids went skiing while we played with Ella.  We met them for lunch and watched them (try to) ski.  Today we may drive into town and check out the wildlife sanctuary.
There are deer everywhere, Ella has been enjoying feeding cocoa puffs to the deer.
Monday we have a sleigh ride scheduled in town for the group.
Oh yeah, still waiting on closing.  Supposed to be the 21st, then the 26th, now won't be until late next week.  It seems the underwriter keeps coming up with another document needed from the buyers.  You'd think they would have gotten all of this done when they first scheduled closing.  Anyway we hope it'll be soon.  We are completely out of the house, what furniture and other things we are keeping are in storage.  Families and friends have taken what they wanted, Habitat Restore made 3 trips to pick up stuff.  Our plans are to travel in the coach for a few years then buy a much smaller house or condo later.
