The final coat of mud!

Chris finished taping and applied the final coat of mud last night. After Christmas, he will spray the texture on the walls and then I can paint and start moving in!!And here is Chris's ever present helper, Carly. Although I think she just likes to stand next to the heater :)

Michael's Holiday Band Concert 12-20-07

Michael had his 7th grade Holiday Band concert tonight. Doesn't he look handsome??

But it's clear why he likes band so much, look at all the cute little flute players in front of him!

Looks like we're going to have a White Christmas after all!

Other than a couple little snow showers that promptly melted, it was beginning to look like we weren't going to have a White Christmas. I was getting mad! Finally, I got what I wished for, and then some... We got about 12 inches of snow in about 24 hours time.

And this is what the poor Camry looked like... It won't be driven again until spring because we took the insurance off of it so we could save money with the new truck. Then in the spring, we'll take the insurance off the Explorer and only drive the Camry and Escape (better gas mileage).

And this is a vew from our road. Look at the pretty pink sky in the background.

We're supposed to continue to get snow off and on for the next 7 days. So, the moral of the story is to be careful what you wish for!

We swore we would never have another car payment, and look what happened!

But the winter months are upon us and we really needed another vehicle with 4wd that was a little more reliable. So we bought this cute little 2008 Ford Escape. It has all the things we really didn't need (sunroof and satelite radio), but they sure are kinda nice!And here is how the shop is progressing. We got the drywall done last week:Chris and I did most of the taping and mud work today. I'll get some pictures up later.
