Completed Walls, only a few more to go

So, we are making a little more progress. Al has finished more of the brick and from this side you can get a good look at what it is going to look completed. They put our indoor doors in last week and also the central unit. I am super excited about the way things are turning out!!

Going to the Chapel......

Well, my little brother is engaged! I am so excited about this and am looking forward to all that goes along with planning a wedding. Brett and Sarah have been dating for 6 years; since Sarah was 14. Yeah, I know she was a young one! They are so cute together and am so excited about Sarah joining our family!

Happy Thanksgiving

We had a very enjoyable Thanksgiving. We were able to sleep in a bit and be lazy all morning. We watched the Macy's Parade and waited all morning for Anna Beth to see Abby and Elmo. She was so excited to see the big Abby balloon coming down 34th street! We then went to Al's cousins house for lunch. We had a great meal as usual. I have to admit I am a little embarrassed, since Al and I fell asleep and slept for about an hour and a half. Not what we intended, but I have to admit the nap was nice. For dinner we headed to my aunt's for more good food. Although we were still stuffed from lunch; we ate a full meal including dessert that evening. We had a wonderful evening and we hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! Looking forward to the Christmas Holidays!

Insulation, sheetrock, and's coming along!

Things are moving right along with this beautiful weather. In the last few weeks, they have come in and sprayed our foam insulation and put up the sheetrock. With the sheet rock being in, I can really get a good idea of my rooms. I have pretty much decided where our furniture is going to go and what furniture I am going to need when we are finished!!! Al and Matt have also been working hard on the brick. I am really enjoying watching everything coming together!!

Al bricking on the front of our garage!

This is the doorway going into the kitchen. I love my archways!!!

This another look at the kitchen.

This is the extra bathroom. Al is going to tile the shower!

The foam insulation is awesome! I really hope the utility bill is as low as they say it will be!
