January, February, March, April, May, December

December follows May, correct? It's almost as if no time has passed since my last blog entry.

For all those claiming there are a few months in between May and December I'll give you the Cliff's Notes version of our latest happenings.

Firstly, kitchen frustrations caused me to throw a fit and boycott blogging until happier times....which are now upon us and lucky for everyone I remembered my account login! This is what our kitchen currently looks like.

So, needless to say, the kitchen is still not finished. These photos are from July and it still looks the exact same. It's been quite a frustrating process, however, we're very hopeful everything will be complete by the end of the month.

September rolled around and this little guy moved in to our living room roof, he was nice enough to bring his three closest friends.

Sacre Bleu! No, the dogs did not shrink and some how end up in an animal trap bolted to our ceiling. We had a family of squirrels invade our house, sadly this is the only guy who made it out alive. Two died outside the house....I guess they made it out alive briefly (hehe, so bad!) and the fourth one died, in the house, in the ceiling. And then a week later we had a maggot infestation. Lucky for you we did not take photos. We only drank a lot of this to help erase the disturbing images from our brains.

It worked! We don't remember a THING from that horrible evening!

So moving on to where we are right now. After squirrels and other gross things infested our house we decided it would make logical sense to completely renovate our living room. That makes sense, right?



I hope these pictures don't make you jealous. If you'd like to get your holiday card photos taken in front of our blasted out fireplace please stop by. You can even have Alfredo, Rocco, and the dead squirrel carcass pose with you, maybe add a few Santa hats?

All jokes aside our new carpenter is amazing and we consider ourselves very lucky he made time for our project. These aren't even the most recent photos but if I show you all of them right now I won't submit another blog post for 3-4 months.

Happy December the first!
