Yes! We have moved!!

We moved on the 22nd. The house wasn't quite ready - but we moved our stuff in and stayed the nights with my parents. Then Sat we moved into the house. We are so excitted to finally be in. It has been quite a long journey. The house burned down Jan 27 of 2005. So to finally be moving in during the month of Novemeber is pretty excitting. It is not a normal building of a house when you are dealing with insurance, and an existing building. Although they gutted the house down to the studs, we still had some fun and excitting things that came up. One fun thing is they believe when the fire trucks came down the driveway, or the cement trucks to pour the new addition, they broke part of the sewer line- so we are now going to have that looked at this next week! The good news is it will all be covered it is just one more item to tack on the things that happen to the Young's list! I promise to post pics soon. It looks great!

Tina told us of an auction last Sat. we so scored we got a new bedframe and a leather chair for the bedroom, for a steal. So I will take pics of our new household items as it is always fun to get new furniture!

So long for now!

Still in the hotel

I feel like I should get paid for being here! I think I know everyone's first name and when there shifts are! Too funny. The fix it guy I am sure loves us - I think I told you all the first day I set off the firealarm from cooking (the pan did it really!! not me, not the cook!!) then the dresser broke - we have a clogged drain I think he thinks we are sabatoging the hotel! No he is really nice. Anyway we are off to go pick out our granite counter tops, pretty cool. They will be put in after we move in - he is taking measurements today! Excitting. I guess that is it for now, talk to you all soon.

I am so excitted for our house now - It lookds AWESOME!

WE are so close on the house! It looks unbelievable! I can't wait to move in - I think I will have to pinch myself! As soon as we move in I will put up pics I promise.

So today after more than lets see 20 years I have a conversation with my brother J. It was pretty surreal to talk to him for a long period of time. It was the brother I remembered - happy and jolly and a great scarcastic sense of humor! Gosh I love the Cotton family for there scarcasm! Me no I am not scarcastic at all. lol. Anyway it was pretty cool talking to him - I had a million things I wanted to say, yell, ask him, but I kept it light. I think that is best for now. We'll see what happens. Last time I saw him for 5 minutes - then he dropped out of sight for over a year, so we'll see.

Take care to all of you - we are doing good - still in the hotel - but are seeing a big huge light at the end of this long, long, long, long tunnel. (and it isn't a train! AMEN)

Trick or treat!

Here are the trickotreaters! We are at Grandma & Grandpa Cottons house.

I finally got the pics up the computer at the hotel has been down! So there tjry are! We are getting closer and closer to moving in - we had a bit of a snafu- the carpet guy put in the wrong flooring for the kitchen - he didn't have the one we ordered it was out of stock so he decided to pick one out for us! Not very nice of him! So we picked out new flooring and hopefully it will be in Mon! What can you do? Besides yell at the flooring guy!! oh well the house looks good!
Love ya - Em
