Boat work

David and I spent some time Saturday working on our boat. At this point all the rotten wood has been removed including the floor, rub rails, mast step and centerboard trunk. Now we just have to put it back together!

Here David vacuums out the debris.

We're not quit sure what color we'll paint her but when all the work is done she'll look something like this:

It's feeling like Christmas

This weekend we drove to a Christmas tree farm, picked the perfect tree, and brought it home to join our family for the next few weeks. The kids loved the excitement of decorating the tree and stringing the lights. Miriam closely inspected each ornament, David put up all the upper ornaments, and abigail filled in the middle parts of the tree.

This is the first time we've had Christmas in this house so it took a little extra time deciding where everything should go. But now it looks great and... it feels alot like Christmas time.

Of course we were so busy doing all of this that we didn't have any time to take pictures!
