Happy Thanksgiving!

I know I haven't posted for a while, things have been hectic. The house is slowly get put into place. We had another company come in to give us a second quote on solving our mold problem in the basement. We are just waiting for the final dollar amount now. In the meantime Patrick has been working hard at clearing out all the random shelves, cupboards and paneling. I spent Monday getting all the "extra" boxes in the kitchen have been moved out, so we had a real, clean kitchen to cook Thanksgiving dinner in.

An exciting thing happened this past week. After moving all our stuff in, we realized that the laundry area was set up for a gas dryer rather than an electric one -like ours. :-( So we have been hauling laundry to the laundry mat each week. The exciting thing was that on freecycle - this group where people offer stuff they want to get rid of for free, had a gas dryer listed on it. I called and the guy still had the dryer in the back of his truck and said he'd just drop it by. So not only did we get a free gas dryer - but we got free delivery too! I couldn't believe how easy that one fell into our laps. Now I just have to brave the spiders in the basement to do laundry.

Earlier this month we went to Boise for Popsie's 80th birthday party. Here we are with the birthday boy. I know it is blurry - you can blame Karen.

At the party they put together a bunch of balloons. The two red balloons represent Popsie and Momsie, the yellow balloons all their kids, the green ones are grandkids and the blue ones great-grandkids. I'm not sure exactly how many there are, but I do know its over 100.

Here is mom and dad. They came for the party too. Aren't they cute! It was good to see them and spend some time with them.
