Once Reese and her family were over their sickness and the snow died down we were able to spend quite a bit of time together. Holly, Reese and I had dinner without the family, we had multiple family get togethers, we went to the tea parlor and had lunch, Reese was able to meet McKenzie and we went to the second hand store for books...the list goes on and on.
Here are a few fun photos. I'm sure Reese will eventually add a few of her own.
Reese and I at the tea parlor. Holly had been with us, but she had to run back to work. I think she just didn't want her picture taken
I'm sorry there are not any more photos. I uploaded these earlier in the day at work, so that's all you get for now :)
Things on the house front are moving along. We are desperate to get home. As of right now the deadline is January 31st and we've officially started the countdown. This week has shown us that the end is near. There is paint on the walls and it is beautiful. Here's a small preview.
Most of the downstairs is painted this neutral brown. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not, but I really love it. Eventually I will paint some accent walls, but for now I am thrilled with this color.
This is my new office space. I wish the pic was better. The color is a deep sage. This used to be Mark's nursery and is my favorite room in the house. I'm claiming it as my own when we get back.
Can you guess who's room this is? Yep, the girls!
