We've been having a blast trying to decipher the English on the outside of our boxes. I just found my cutting boards in a box marked "wooden plates," and last night we giggled to find that all our DVDs and CDs were marked "cassette taps"; we've decided that we're calling movies "taps" from now on. And I know I saw a box in our old house that was marked "toys," but I've yet to find it here in this house. I'm dying to know what we own that the Germans consider "toys"!

At least they attempted to write it in English. We had several different languages on our boxes: German, English (i think), and Turkish!!! When we arrived here I had to have the movers open the boxes so I could tell them what room to put it in. The good thing was that I filled out the inventory at least that was readable. Just craziness!!!
