Today was a blessing. I love Mondays because I get to start the day off in the Word in the Bible study that I am in. It is incredible. I spent the whole day with mom and dad- we went to COSTCO, played wii, swam..it was great. They bought Chris and I a pretty awesome BBQ today. We are so thankful and can't wait to have our first bbq here at our house! My parents are seriously the most generous people we have ever met. Our desire is to be like them- they are always giving to others with joyful hearts. We are so thankful for all they have done for us. Thanks mom and dad! Tonight we went to Home Depot to order the rest of our interior doors (well sort of) we have 2 more to order after these 3 come in. Our bucket list is looking pretty good for 2008! After Home Depot we went back to mom and dads to swim and play wii with some of the high schoolers, graduated high schoolers and some of the staff. I love those people. Good times.

Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
