Thanks, Thanksgiving!

Megan, Robbie, and Me

Monkey Bread


Table Decoration and Conner

There were other people there, too. Like my husband, for example. And Megan's husband, Max, and his father, Paul. Somehow I had neglected to get them on camera? Probably because I was busy taking shots of the very special treat of new nephew, COLBY!

Now I don't eat meat but I could nibble on a foot or ear of this here baby.
Just sayin'.

On the 5 Days Before Appraisal My True Love Made a To Do List

Tis the season for fixing up the house in a mad rush to welcome guests that are traveling from afar and for appraisers who may grant us more money toward our home. Dustin pulled two almost all-nighters retexturing 3 rooms, installing overhead lights in 3 rooms (that previously didn't have any), and touching up the outer house paint while I painted walls and trim inside. Whew. Sometime around 2 a.m. on Sunday, we folded up shop and arranged for my ma-in-law to show the appraiser our semi-fixed up home. We did score big but decided to pass until we could get more.... the saga continues.
