First Get-Together

Saturday, November 22, 2008

Christy Sheahan (the world's best math teacher-she was my and Jessica's math teacher in high school) and I hosted a book shower for Tripp, Jessica and Justin's son. This is one of my favorite baby showers to give - Tripp received a lot of wonderful books. It was great to catch-up and everyone seemed to have a great time! Love you Jessica and Justin and Tripp - we enjoyed hosting a shower for you - cannot wait to read you Go Dog Go!

After the shower - "the adults" went home and the high school friends stayed over for chili and drinks. It is always so great to relax and enjoy the company of ol' friends.
If you ever move - have a get-together 22 days later. You will have no other choice but, to have the house in order and it feels good to be done so soon. :)

The decorating is DONE! After several days of rearranging and redoing and relooking and starting completely over...the house is decorated.

Turkey...Moving Too

Sunday, November 2, 2008

During the renovation at the Powell Place house we came across this lovely ceramic turkey in the garage. Adam was headed to put it in the house when my Dad said, "Put it in the back yard dog house." Well, the turkey stayed in the back yard at Powell Place until Sunday. Of course, Dad loaded it up to bring it to Welcome Sargent. He found the perfect place for it...

Yep - We're Alive...

Last Saturday the moving "fun" began! Thanks to several family members and friends we were able to be completely moved by Sunday evening. We are unpacked - just the china and the few random boxes are left. Knox is delivering our dining room furniture tomorrow...so hopefully by Sunday the china will be unpacked!
As for the other adventures of moving...we have lived a week without internet, tv, telephone, AHHHH! Thanks to Verizon (Nope - DSL/Internet is not available everywhere - we could not establish service with any provider!!) we have internet service as of tonight! I have a lot of facebooking and blog reading to do! Hopefully tomorrow Dish Network will (finally) have their stuff ordered and be able to connect us to the television. The telephone is another story - AT & T is difficult to work with! There is a plus to not having all of this...we are unpacked!

Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have some pictures posted - of the move and the house decorated and with furniture.
