We passed!

We had our occupancy inspection today (yeah, I know, we've occupying for awhile now) and we passed first time around! Woo hoo!

Our Christmas decoration

There were requests for a posting of our Christmas tree. Unfortunately you'll have to wait another year for that particular picture, since Christmas decorating wasn't high on the list this holiday season. Instead, here's our Christmas wreath, hung on our front door. I guess it's about time for that to come down, huh?

Happy New Year!

Elvis is in the house!

It didn't feel like home without him!

We were really busy this week and got a lot done. Nearly all of the boxes are unpacked (and now in a soggy pile outside because of the rain). We found Rob's teapots from China (and this isn't all of them, even though we lost 2 in the move).

Some pictures were hung.

We also bought a lot of shelving for the office and the upstairs hall. You were wondering who in the world ever goes to the Elfa sales that the Container Store holds every Christmas? Well, now you know. Rob put 'em all up, though I'm not convinced it was quite as easy a task as the woman at the Container Store led us to believe. But the result is fabulous!

We ushered in the New Year by cooking a yummy New Year's Eve dinner in our new kitchen and drinking a nice bottle of champagne. It's finally starting to feel like home.
