We bought a house. A real fixer-upper. It had everything we wanted. Old wires and plumbing, no insulation, a mostly unfinished basement, a bathroom that smelled funny, a kitchen that had no appliances and a broken sink, walls that needed several coats of paint, and a yard that might take us years to 'fix'. At the end of February we called everyone we knew and said, 'We're gonna need a little help'! And ten months later, I can honestly say that we couldn't have done any of this without the help of you all!
Cleaning.Painting.Plumbing.Drilling.Moving.We stopped to enjoy new additions (Max, Abbie, Henry, Sydney, Cooper, and Ella)We killed over 2 tons of Juniper and broke our friends' backs.We gave the kitchen a massive facelift.I'm pretty sure that 2010 will be as busy as 2009. But we plan on spending as much time as possible with our amazing friends and family that helped us get through this busy year! Cheers, Hugs, and LOVE!!
We took some quiet time and hung out with family.We cleaned out the attic and added new insulation. (And I got a Super Hero!)
We got a new electrical panel and rewired the house.
We got our very first Christmas tree, hosted a few parties, and made all of our Christmas gifts - because the electricians took all of our money!
