Catching up

Jason and I have been busy! We've been putting things away at the new house, painting at the old house with the help of Jason's dad and step mom and my parents, selling the old house, finishing out the school year, starting summer school, starting summer grad school classes and just trying to breathe.

Last week, we had company for Jason's 37th birthday. (I can't believe he's that OLD! hee hee) Jason's dad and step mom came to visit. We (including my parents) went to MacGregor's for dinner. (That's the place we had our rehearsal dinner.) Everything was yummy! Jason also had a cake (from Safeway because I was too busy to bake, but it was GOOD!)

Jason also got some lovely gifts...a book on baseball, football boxers, NASA DVDs, a chair, a ladder and even a homemade card by the lovely, talented and PUBLISHED, Niki!

We've also planted our first tree- a Japanese maple. That was our house warming gift from Jason's dad and step mom. Here's Jason starting to dig the hole...it took awhile because our "soil" is chock full of rocks!

There has been some progress on the empty lot next door to us. Last Friday, they poured cement for the foundation. This past Friday, they set the support posts and poured the cement for the basement floor and steps. It's amazing to see how quickly this part of the building process goes.

Happy (belated) Birthday, Jason!!

(And the Japanese maple is a wonderful housewarming gift -- we've got one in our front yard, and we think they're beautiful!)
