You'll have one like that, the trip to end all trips! It will be fun to see the characters too. There's so much Disney detail that gets overlooked when on a commando type touring plan. You'll notice so much more this way.

Love the house pictures. Hopefully the fence will deter any further thefts from the property. I'm just amazed at how brazen people have been. It's beautiful and I'd think offers a sense of security too.

I know that Scott and my mom will be on board for a stop and smell the roses type of trip. The kids not so much.


Thank you. I find the fence amazing! I would be deterred by it myself.

The house is amazing. I know you saw the original pictures I posted on Judy's thread so you do see how far it has come. We were talking last night and we are going to do a lot of replanting next spring. I am so excited for what the next year will bring.
That's why I quit thinking about it. Don't need or want the stress right now. Luckily we live in between the elementary school and middle school so I'm hoping Jeremy would have matured enough to walk to school by the time he reaches middle school he'll have more respect for cars and following directions. Right now I wouldn't dare even think to let him!!

Just from the pictures it does look amazing!! From the original pictures to now the house has come a long way! I'm just surprised they are getting it all done and in a timely manner. I hope they stay on track and you'll be back home very soon!! That's awesome your going to replant!! A new beginning from everything that happened.

I think that they will. At this point the majority of the work is indoors, so even if it rains work can proceed. This week it is appliance shopping time. Sears is having some great sales this week so I am looking there. I also am looking at Lowes and Home Depot. Spring is going to be a fun time of replanting in our yards. Roses, grapes, and fruit trees to replant.

I got an email from my friend Jason at the furniture telling me that our special order furniture is done. I am so excited to get it in the house and post pictures of all that. Did you ever see a picture of my "Evil Queen" throne?

Check out Best Buy too. I've heard of some amazing deals there on appliances.

I'm fine where I am but Boulder, Lyons, and Estes Park are a disaster. Massive flooding in Loveland and Greeley areas as well. The road from Loveland to Estes Park (gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park) is completely destroyed through the canyon. Worst flood since 1976.

I think the rain is finally supposed to quit tonight/early tomorrow. We need a break!

I am glad to hear you are safe. The pictures and video I have seen in the news are horrifying. I hope that the rain is finally stopped.

That's great that the work will continue rain or shine!! Always fun to go shopping for new stuff!! We got our washer/dryer at Home Depot a couple years ago during black Friday and got an awesome deal on it. Check out Fry's Electronics too. That's where we bought our refrigerator and got an awesome deal a couple years ago.

That's awesome that your furniture is done!! Are they going to hold it until you can put it into the house or are you going to start using it now? I did see the throne!! I wish I had some place to put one!! It looks great and fun!!

I would check Fry's but the nearest one is 45 miles away in Sacramento. The furniture is staying at the store until we move in. I explained to them that we wouldn't be able to take delivery on it until November. Because it is special order we had to order it ahead of time. They had no idea for sure how long it would take to be finished.

I thought there was a closer one but yeah Sacramento is a little to far. Not worth the gas or time. That's good they are willing to hold it for you. I'm sure that's one less thing you have to worry about.

I have tried to get as many things ahead of time that I can. It has been crazy. The moments that I hate are the ones where I think "oh, I have one of those...." only to realize that no I don't.

That would probably be the hardest thing. To know you once had it and now you don't. Glad your able to do it all before hand. I could only imagine doing it while trying to move. That was the one thing Jeff and I had to do when we moved in together. I had left a bad relationship so I left a lot of things behind, so when we met and moved into our apartment we had to get everything!! It was fun shopping but at the same time by the time we were done I was just done and figured we'd get it as we needed it.

Am I reading your signature right? This will be your first Disneyland trip?
Yes and no. I am pretty familiar with DLR. I went to high school in fullerton and my brother was a CM for a while in Tomorrowland. But I moved from SoCal some time ago so I'd say the last time I went to DLR was about 10 years ago! DH has not been in probably more like 15-20. And the kids have never been. So we kind of have a fun mix!

Well it is a first trip as a family so that definitely counts! How fun! I bet your kids are excited.
