What wonderful news. Home Sweet Home. Did you decide to investigate having a gas line run to your kitchen for a gas stove?
I can't wait to hear and see all you do for the nest building!

We will be checking that out after the holidays. Today, I am just sitting back and relaxing. The fixes will start after New Years as I am at work for almost all next week.

I wanted to put up the new hardware in the bathroom, but want to paint first. I'm going to do a cream color on the dark wood and lighten up the bathroom. Also replacing the fluorescent fixture in the ceiling for an LED.

Baby steps.

Baby steps indeed. Now that the ogre-sized step of dealing with the bank and stuff is over, you can enjoy the fun stuff. I hope this is your Merriest Christmas holiday time yet.

Tonight we sit in front of the fire.
This couldn't be happening to two nicer more deserving people. Lots of happy meals eaten together in front of the fireplace. Enjoy life. You both deserve it.

You and Shrek are finally home for the holidays, have a great Christmas!

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays, cause no matter how far away you roam, if you want to be happy in a million ways, for the holidays, you cant beat home, sweet home!

So glad you're able to spend the first of many holidays to come in your new home, with family. Merry Christmas, Princess and Shrek!
