We still have a few odd and ends to take care of--like lights--and
some furniture would be nice--maybe some blinds--knobs on the cabinets--wait a minute I
thought we were done!!

At least the T.V. does not look so ridiculously big down here!

Fireplace and built in book cases. We still need to add the shelves.

This is the room right off the back doors. Like the travertine?

I just have to say how grateful I am for my sweet husband and all his many talents. He has worked so hard, to give us such a beautiful home. He has been coming home from working 9+ hour days just to grab a quick bite to eat before he heads down to the basement. What is more remarkable than that is that he does it with a smile on his face and most of the time he is whistling as he works! (reminds me of dad) Thanks so much honey, everything looks beautiful because of you!! I love you--(and I'm so glad it's over!)Posted by Picasa

I love you!

You are even more beautiful than the day that I met you. You are the love of my life and the Mother of our five children.
you are the most wonderful person I have ever met. I am greatful that you are mine forever. I love you and hope you have a wonderful Mothersday. You are my favorite person in the whole world.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

The best mother's day present I could have would be to be able to be with you on Mothers day! But since I cannot I just want to tell you how much I love and appreciate you. I know this Mother's day will be hard for you since it is the first one without grandma--we all miss her. Thanks for your example and your unconditional love. I learned this year that even though I am a mother of five, with two teenagers of my own--I still have not outgrown the need for my mom's help and advice--even though I may not always like the advice!! We all hope you have a fantastic day! XXXXXOOOOOXXOOO--You are the best!!

After living with a dog for the past 8 1/2 years--it just felt to
weird around here! We actually met Hurley two weeks before Maggie
died---I tried to talk Darren into letting us get him, but Darren said we were
not a two dog family--well then Maggie died--but someone else had already bought
Hurley. Last Saturday I found out the people who had bought him had brought him
back after the first time he had an accident on the floor. Do not ask me how you could have
Hurley in your house for a day and give him back--he has stolen all our hearts (even
Darrens). He has not had any accidents yet--I think he knew what he had to do to get out
of that other house-to make it to his real home--with us!! We are all in love with our little
Hurley Burley!!!

He Has His Own Chair! (or should I say THRONE?)

His previous owner said he was used to lounging around in
one of these child size folding chairs! They were right--he felt right at
