A is for Apples and Autumn!

Check out these apples!

Hank's turn to pick.

Daddy needed to show Hank what a good apple looked like, since he kept picking up the rotten ones off the ground!


Say apples!

Getting ready to check out.
Autumn is my favorite season and we celebrated yesterday by going to the Apple Orchard and picking apples.  I was wishing that we were in our house already, so I could go home and do some baking.  Instead we dropped some apples off with Mom Mom and asked her to bake us some goodies!  At least we will be in there in time to bake Christmas Cookies.

40 Days!

Looking from the Great Room toward the front door.

40 more days until we are supposed to move in.  This week they added the stone to the front and side foundation.  They also finished up trim work and painted, as well as added the mantle and slate surround to the fire place.  The wood floors were delivered as well as some cabinets.

Choo Choo Party.

Hank's Choo Choo party went very well Saturday.  We had the party at Brant's parents house in the afternoon.  Lots of family and friends helped us celebrate.   As you can tell from the photos it was all about Choo Choo's that day!

50 Days and Counting!

We have 50 days left until our scheduled move in day.  We can't wait!!!
This week they are finishing up siding and outside trim.  The shutters also went up and the garage doors are up too.  The inside doors and trim were delivered today.  This past weekend we ordered our appliances and picked out tile for a kitchen back splash.

Laboring on Labor Day.

 Much is being done on the house.  The shingles are done, the siding is almost done, and the drywall was started last Tuesday, and is now done, except for the finishing work, of course.  We also picked out the finish we want for our wood floors.  Last night we had just left, from our nightly check in at the house, when we got a call from my Mom that the transformer in front of our house was on fire!  The electric company had just installed it yesterday.  Brant got over there and called 911 as well as the electric company.  By the time the fire company got there it had burned itself out.  THANK GOD!!!  Hank and I were back at the trailer and could see the fire sparking through the woods.  After a big pop the fire burned out.

We are happy to see so much being done.  They were even working on Labor Day!  We now have less than two months until our projected move in date!!
