Snowday

on
Sunday, January 31, 2010
In other news it snowed yesterday in North Carolina! Surprisingly, NC really doesn't get that much more snow than Huntsville. So when they threaten snow, everyone goes a little crazy, hits the grocery store, and then the city pretty much shuts down.
It was a respectable snow, 6-8 inches maybe, you can see in the picture below that our boots are completely covered. We had fun playing in the snow, and being forced to stay inside for the day.

Our wonderful real estate agents went out to the lot yesterday and took us some new pictures! The shingles are laid, and the air conditioning guys were there working.

We're pretty sure this is a view from standing in our bedroom looking into our bathroom/closet

Five days ago, this lot just had a gravel foundation...today they were putting up walls. It will be May before we know it! A huge thank you to everyone who is keeping an eye on things and sending us pictures. It is almost as good as seeing it in person. Here are some pictures from today (1/18/10).

We have not been in Alabama this week, but we have heard that it has been a tad cold (ok, very cold) and snowy. It has been a cold one up here in NC too...but we have had no snow to show for it. However, we are proud to announce that even admidst the winter weather, they have started on our house!

Pictures of our lot...pre-construction





so here goes nothing...

Until now, our online communication has pretty much revolved around email and facebook.  However, with the turn of 2010 and the start to what will likely be one of the biggest years of our lives we have decided to embrace the blogging trend.  Kind of like putting our college days behind us and joining the ranks of young married couples.  Here's a look at our year ahead:
  1. Graduation for Kelly - May 13th - we will both finally be done with school!
  2. Moving back to Huntsville - May 15th - 2 days later
  3. Building our first house (and hopefully the house we will live in for many years to come)...tentative closing date - May 20th
  4. New jobs for both of us (well Andrew's is more like a continuation of his current job, but in a new place)
We figured that we would start blogging as our house began construction...aside from that our lives are not all that entertaining at the moment.   And with any luck the blog will continue as our family moves back to Huntsville and begins a new chapter in our lives.  

House status - 1.6.09 - The house was to be released for construction today with plans to begin construction next week.  Can't wait to see some progress!  We are praying for good weather and no issues!  Benton is supposed to be hassle-free right? : )  Pictures to come...
