Okay, so we're not having Thanksgiving dinner here. In fact, I don't even think we'll have Christmas dinner here. Thank goodness Tawny and Travis live nearby. Tawny is hosting Thanksgiving so we went shopping today and even started our preliminary cooking. There's something about TRADITION that is SO SPECIAL!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends and family. It's my favorite holiday. Friends, family, food...and no expections other than that!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I've finally got a landscaped front yard. The trailer has been our saving grace. We've been able to use the kitchen for cooking, and our fridge is in the garage.
I love our new kitchen. It's going to be so nice to have easy access to a covered deck for barbecuing right off the kitchen. And I'm really happy with the paint color. I usually tend to like subtle colors, but a splash here and there is fun.

The house is finally being painted, inside and out. Still no kitchen, obviously. That will go in last.

We just got back from a week in Phoenix seeing family. It was a surprise birthday party for my brother-in-law, and everyone was there. What a treat! Tawny and Travis even flew down for a few days.

The landscaping is going in. We're finally going to have a "formal" entryway. But the most exciting part is that I will be able to walk in my front yard without getting muddy when it rains! We're even going to have the driveway paved.

Some days we've got 10 trucks on the front lawn. It doesn't look much like a lawn anymore.'s our kitchen. It's now November, and we have been without a kitchen since the first of June. I wonder what it's going to be like to have a regular house again?

Thank goodness for our trailer! And the refrigerator in the garage. With those we can at least have meals. Although we certainly can't do much entertaining.

My parents are coming up for Thanksgiving, so I'm putting them up at the Holiday Inn Express by the airport. Oh well...things could be MUCH worse!
