Remembering Lily

December 6, 2006. Two years have gone by....but not one day has been without thoughts of Baby Lily. A tiny angel that God called home to be with him. I think of her everyday and even though life goes on, my heart is and always will be broken.

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.

Those we have held in our arms for a little while, we hold in our hearts forever.

Busy beavers

Wow! What a month it's been! I thought I should give a quick update since it's been over a month since I last posted. Let's just say I'm not spending much time on the computer these days since we are trying really hard to have our house ready to move in by Christmas Eve.

When we bought this farm we knew there were some things we wanted to change about the house...mostly just freshening up with new carpet, paint, etc. Well, once we got in there and starting really looking around, it has turned into more of a remodel than a freshening up! I wish I could post pictures for you to see but I'm using my parent's computer for the time being and don't really want to dowload my pictures on their I'll have to do that later (I have taken lots of pictures).

Just a quick rundown of things we've done are painting, stripping wallpaper, tearing down old plaster walls, adding a picture window, adding electrical outlets, tearing down a couple half walls to open the rooms up, ripping up carpet and framing a new ceiling in Leah's room. Still to do are putting sheetrock up where the old plaster was torn down, adding trim, getting carpet installed and of course painting and cleaning. Then all that's left is moving our stuff in and unpacking. All in freezing cold weather when I haven't even started Christmas shopping!! Whew! I'm worn out just thinking about it!!!

We are really hoping to get it done soon. We are doing all the work ourselves so it will feel like such an accomplishment to have it done! I am so thankful to have such a smart, talented husband. Jason is completely doing this remodel. All I can take credit for is painting, stripping wallpaper and holding a few boards for him. I am so proud of him!!
