Here is Steve with the Uhaul Saturday morning (Dec. 13th). He's out in the street that way because he was going to back up the Uhaul into our driveway.

I bought my first nativity last year after Christmas, on a great sale. I bought a wood one, so I wouldn't worry about Rebecca playing with it. So I pulled it out from one of the many boxes.

Just wait until we have had time to make this even better! I've already started hacking away at the overgrown bushes out front and I'm going to repaint the screen door. I have to pace myself with the things I can't wait to do with my OWN home! We love it! The neighborhood is very nice too. We've had multiple people come introduce themselves. This couple who lives a couple houses up the street stopped by while I was hacking away at the bushes and introduced themselves and welcomed us. They also informed us that there is a family two doors up with teenage daughters and they are great babysitters. Good girls who make good grades. They were a very nice couple. She had just had heart surgery so she couldn't ride in the front seat, so she calls her husband Jeeves, because he is chauffering her around.

My grandpa Van Leeuwen turned 80 last month and I sent him the birthday card above. Then I made this Christmas card for him and sent it with 2 dozen caramels. It's his wife's recipe that I use. She passed away 6 years ago and I decided to start carrying on her tradition. Homemade caramels are so yummy!

When on my trip last month to Southern Utah, my FIL and I stopped at the Mandalay Bay buffet for dinner. I only got one picture of the food, which was delicious! This is actually dessert. A coconut cream pie, chocolate ganache thing, and a raspberry creme with fresh fruit in a chocolate cup. So tasty! Thanks pops!

Restaurant week is when some restaurants that are a little pricey offer a 3 course meal for $20 at lunch and $30 at dinner. We decided to go to a steak house here in Danville, especially once we found out that we had the house. So to celebrate we came here and about 10 minutes after we showed up, our friends did too! It was such a happy suprise and fun to have dinner with them!
