Some scrapbooking

I've finally gotten around to starting our wedding album. In the midst of moving and everything. I guess seeing all my stuff in a different place inspired me or something. Here are some shots of the first couple of pages.

Here's some pictures of our carpet when it was freshly installed. It's in all 3 of the upstair's bedrooms and looks and feels great! Oh and the furnace guy is coming tonight so hopefully we'll get it working. It's supposed to go down to 2 degrees tonight so it might be nice to have it on.

Also, over the Thanksgiving weekend, Reuben's dad came down and installed our bedroom closet doors and all the crown moulding and baseboards in our room and one other bedroom. It looks wonderful!

We've had to do a lot of painting recently. We had to paint over all the bright colors we did in the old apartment. My dad and Reuben managed it in under 2 hours! While looking through our pictures, I found this.

Then we started painting our new place. This is our Master bedroom.

Finally, late Saturday night we were all done and ready for the carpet to be installed on Monday morning. Isn't the dark red awesome? We love it!

the Schriemers

Just a few pictures of our good friends, the Schriemers. When we're hungry they feed us. When we're in need of chicken wire, herbs or fresh veggies, they are always there to supply us. When we need an excuse to try out go-carting for the first time, they indulge us. We are ever thankful for their kindness and friendship, smiles and hugs.

Tessa and Nelia (always showing great affection for Reuben).

Lydia loves to learn play the organ from my Dad

Marybeth and her new glasses.


I've added some pictures to my move-in story post from a couple of weeks ago.

Well, we're finally in!! We slept at our house last night. And we used the shower for the first time too. Sleeping = great; shower = not so great. There is almost no water pressure in our shower. Maybe it's this silly water saving shower head. Well, it may be primitive but at least it's clean and it's ours! All ours ... to fix...

I can't wait to get some pictures loaded on here but we just haven't found the time to get them off of our camera.

We finally arranged the livingroom and diningroom furniture and it looks so homey and cozy and wonderful!

Dear Mr. Winter; Please don't come for a little while longer as our furnace needs half a thousand dollars worth of repairs done to it. Thanks the Helders.

That's the update. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
