January 3, 2011: Wall Speakers

Back to the project!
Bennett wants to get back into his video novels, so he worked on the audio portions...

Totoro is still getting used to the new side of the house, and to us being home again.

January 1, 2011: Happy New Year!!!

Here are some glimpses of special sights and people we were blessed to enjoy on our trip to Florida via Seattle...

Greetings at Sea-Tac Int'l Airport by none other than Santa and one of his elves!

Christmas Eve Candlelight service in Seattle with many old friends, including Clifford Cone and Clark Sherril...

Beautiful Christmas displays at Millenium Mall in Orlando (with reminders of home!)

Huge palm trees indoors!

Reminders of Wally...

Reminders of our home-in-progress as we discovered Restoration Hardware!

Reminders of work (!) and blessings from distant friends...

Enjoyed the day very much, Clint!

Special times with friends...

...and family!

And returning to Seattle to be picked up past midnight by special friends just to turn around after a restful nap to return to the airport by 6 am. Only very special friends would do that. Thank you, Bill & Davitra!

A last glimpse at sunrise over Mt. Rainier (as we watch the Hawaiian Airlines crew DE-ICE the plane wings!), and we headed home.

December 22, 2010: Not a carpenter was stirring...

We're getting ready to leave for our trip, and Eric folks are getting ready for their Christmas parties, so it's a sabbath rest for the house. Enjoying some family time...

December 19, 2010: The Moat

It was always a joke that we would build a moat around the house...

...guess God was in on the joke as well!

Looks like we're gonna rethink the side yard and the concrete slab so that the a/c units don't get flooded out. Thanks for the advance warning, Jesus!
