We've Been Busy

We haven't posted in a while, here's a snapshot of what we've been up to. Some of the best ones are from our evacuation, we had a full week of fun in San Antonio. Not included are the images of coming to home to a week without power.

Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas came and went at warp speed. Right into the new year Lauren and Jeremy had there adenoids and tonsils removed (plus ear tubes for Jeremy). This last Friday Lauren competed in a spelling bee and won second place! So here we are with nothing to do, right?

Wrong! We committed to getting some big projects done this year. So why wait? A week into the kids recovery we gutted our bathroom. Pictures and more detail to follow.

Enjoy the show!
