a few promised pics


I talked to my mom and sister today and they insisted I post some pics of the place. I did get an outside pic- nothing too exciting. just an old, brick rancher. Much like some of the places we lived in Provo. The other pics are of our last day in Battle Ground. Geof.'s little bro Brind met us at the park and played away with the kids. They LOVED it! We'll miss you Uncle Brind! I also posted a pic of Cole's most favorite thing about this house-the attic. He's obsessed! He calls it his secret hiding place, of course, and wants Geof. to pull the stairs down every chance he gets. The top 2 pics are of my most recent Goodwill finds. The pictures don't even do them justice, though! The couch is probably at least 50 years old and in brand NEW condition. I'm serious. Geof. even agrees that it's pretty cool. It was made by some high quality furniture manufacturer in North Carolina. Isn't NC known for its furniture...or am I wrong? And the chair is nice and sturdy and I might sand and paint the wood. It'll look fantastic!! Any ideas on what would look good with the gold couch? I have my ideas...

Well you can never go wrong with red.
I am so glad you are finding your spot cozy. I think that is so important to being happy. And for your kids to have their own space is a cherry on top.

OH MY WORD! So loving the house, the HUGE trees, (AK trees or more specifically Fairbanks trees are La-hame!), the huge yeard AND the furniture. I'll bet it's a used goods/flea market heaven back there! I'm just really excited for you guys and glad you made it there safe and sound. I can't WAIT to hear and see all about your life again and east coast! And drool and be jealous and do cart-wheels and wow I'm getting really carried away here, I'll stop. Now.
We love you guys!

Umm, ya that comment was FULL of typos. Yeard? No YARD, life again AND the east coast, NO life again ON the east coast. Geez!

Glad you made it safely! Miss you already. Gotta say, though, I'd like the pictures of the cute house and nifty furniture better if they didn't have that wierd semi-transparent background over them. You gotta change that. It's hard to see the pictures.
Have fun settling in!
