our house when we bought it
oct 2004
we are updating everyone on how the house is going. SLOW! it seems like we work and work and turn around to leave and not much has gotten done. cj goes there straight after work and stays until really late. he is our hero! we are crammed in our little apt. and although we know we are blessed to live here, we are tired of being stacked on top of each other with our office, playroom, and eating area all in one room. it is our dream house, so we still hold out hope that we will be in there soon, and as cj put it, it will all be a speck in our imagination before long. we hope and pray.
mary holland turned 4 months today and her and hudson enjoy each other for the most part. hudson loves to give her hugs and kisses and occasional bites. she braces herself when she seems him coming, but there is definitely love and admiration for her older brother. he is also very protective of her and will hunker over her as strangers stop to say hello. he keeps us laughing and copies all we do and say. he loves life and is a happy soul.
pray that we can finish this house before it kills us, or mostly cj. we are so proud of him and his hard work. we'll keep you posted.
