New Home

pictures of the dining room and kitchen.

the hutch actually looks normal now that it's in a more spacious area.

thanks to mom and dad g. for the thoughtful housewarming gift. This beautiful fall arrangement came on the first day we were here, when we were just getting started on painting. They were dropped off by the sweetest old man who just loves to make people's day. Wouldn't delivering flowers be such a fun job? :)

Canadian Thanksgiving was a blast. Unfortunately the camera battery was dead, but we've got great memories of the evening. I must say it was so nice to have so much help in the kitchen now that more than 1 person can be in there and not feel cramped! I had it nice and easy this year, I felt completely relaxed. I was also told that this was the best year yet because of all the space we had. It was great! After dessert was served and the bellies were filled, most people stayed for a rip-roarin game of Wild Hoopla. David's brother Dane and their dad, Dan stopped by on their way home from the football game convieniently to pick up Joen's laptop, (which David was supposed to fix sometime during all the festivities) and even more convieniently Dan and Dane were hungry for some leftovers! I made a turkey frame soup today after work. The bones had been boiling overnight and cooling during the day, so the meat was easily taken off. We'll see how it turns out.

GREAT photos! Wow, the furniture looks great in those rooms. The game sounded fun--wish I could have been there! Keep the stories coming. Love it!
