House update: we have to get the gas fireplace working and then we will have the final mechanical inspection. All that will be left is getting our final grade outside and the hand railing going down to the basement installed and we can callf or final inspection. It needs to happen quickly because we got a letter from Consumers yesterday stating that in 30 days they are going to disconnect all power to this house. It seems when we built the garage 3 years ago that a power line runs over the garage and that is a violation for Consumers. Now it seems in 3 years time that someone would have caught that long before now. When they came to run the new power for the house, they told us it would have to come down after we were moved into the new house. Notice I said AFTER we moved in.

Sure going to be interesting to get everything moved from this old house into the new house in lesss than 30 days, especially since we have passed final inspection yet.

I love our new house and it has been a labor of love and many new experiences along the way. Many disappointments, some tears, lots of learning and great times together. We could not have done this without the help of Todd & Kellie. Todd who came and helped Phil each weekend and Kellie for coming and sharing Tyler with me and allowing her husband to help.

I am a little behind on my scrapping since this for Jorja's 2nd birthday party. She had a great time watching the other kids use the slip and slide. This is for a sketch challenge on Creative Express.

This is for her 3rd birthday. Since they hadn't met a lot of friends, she picked going to Medival Times for her birthday. If you pull on the tassel it opens so you can read the journaling. It's had to believe how much our little girl grew in just one year.

This is the layout I submitted for Feeling Scrappy's “Shades of Autumn” Layout Contest!

Isn't he just the more adorable little guy. I printed this on a transparency and I am very pleased how it turned out.
