One Whole Year



-One year ago today. Sorry about the blur-

Today marks a special anniversary. We moved into our house a year ago today. It has taken a total transformation. We once had red tile (like at McDonald's) in our entry and now we have nice hardwood floors. The house did smell like smoke...and now it smells pretty good (old houses have a charming "old house" smell). We are happy to live in such a great neighborhood with so many amenities in walking distance (Blockbuster, Mexican Grill, The Gap, Walgreen's, 7-11, parks, grocery store, trains).




Happy Anniversary Ray's Cute Old House!

I love your cute old house. Can I come over and drool over all that you have done in the last year? That is my favorite thing to do when I come over you know! Well, I am glad to see that you are loving the neighborhood still. When I grow up, I want to have a house just like the Rays.

Happy anniversary! Mostly I'm just thrilled to see how much hair grows in a year - on Holland that is! Miss Dub will be sporting long locks in no time!

I'm glad that you guys don't have to suffer by not having a 'gap' near by. :). I can't believe how big your kids are already! Your house looks awesome. How close are you to the 'Ferris Bueller's day off' neighborhood?

I love the "old house" smell! I REALLY wanted to buy an older house...with trees...but we ended up building a new one. Go figure. What is your preference? New house, old house - or newly remodeled old house? I want to see more pics of your cute house!

I'm not happy...I'm sad that the Tuna's moved! This marks a one year anniversary for the Gonzo's too..that we have suffered out here without your presence!

The only bonus to the situation is your cute house and all the great friends you have made out there!
