Christmas Plans

Like years past the holidays are busy. This year won't be any different. We are coming home tonight and will probably stay at Paul and Kathy's house. We are bringing them the gift of Ace. He will be spending some quality time with Paul for the week. Saturday my family is having a big family reunion type party. It should be a good time. Sunday night is the Richard's family Christmas party. This year it's at the Tonagel's house. It's always a good time when everyone gets together there. Monday night is Christmas Eve, we usually spend that night with Laurie's family and then make breakfast with everyone in the morning. Tuesday afternoon will be spent back at the Penziol's. Then it's back to Indy on Tuesday evening because I have to work on Wednesday morning. Laurie is lucky and only has to work on Thursday next week. Then we leave for Florida with her family on Friday morning. We will be back on Jan. 6th if anyone needs to get a hold of us. We'll see you guys this week and if we don't, have a Merry Christmas!

More Tile work

We are slowly getting the kitchen, entryway, and mud room tile finished. We were actually able to put the washer and dryer back in the mud room last night. I'll take some more pictures of the finished product soon.

WE'RE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laurie and I have known for a little while now, but we just went for our first doctor's visit on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Laurie is 9 weeks along right now. We are very excited and can't wait for Ace and Buddy to have another sibling.

Lucas and Jill's Wedding

Saturday night Laurie and I went to one of my college buddy's wedding. It was a blast. We caught up with old friends and got to know Jill's family a little better. Joe had a great time cutting it up on the dance floor and Mike got the baby sitting bug.

Bathroom, Check!

We finished our bathroom remodel about a week ago. It was a total revamp of the bathroom except for the shower. Laurie and I pulled everything out and started from scratch. I layed new tile, installed a four foot tall bead board and trimmed it out, and installed a new sink and toilet. And we put in a new light and matching hardware. It was a pretty good project. Laurie got her feet wet with a little bit of everything from tile work to electrical to plumbing. We took a bunch of pictures but you'll just have to come visit to see the rest for yourself.

The Projects Never Stop!!!

We are in the midst of a couple of projects right now. Can you tell I'm a Penziol. I told Laurie, when I was growing up that our dad always had a bunch of projects going at the same time. So today I gutted the spare bathroom. Everything except the shower is out now. We are also putting tile in the kitchen, entry way, and mud room. We ordered a little extra tile so we could also redo the spare bathroom floor. Busy, Busy!

Laurie has a tradition of passing out Halloween candy at her mom and dad's house every year. She loves seeing all the kids dressed up from her neighborhood. Derrick and Barbie dropped by with rest of the family to say Hi too.

Thank you Very Much!

Switching it up a little

Laurie and I rearranged the living room furniture a couple nights ago. It feels like a totally different house now when you walk in. We love our sectional but it can limit how we can arrange things in this space for sure. We found a great new location for it though. Oh, and here is a picture of buddy after he just got done rubbing his face on the floor.

Busy Weekend

This past weekend Stan and Sue stayed the night on their way to the Covered Bridge festival. They left around 6:30 Saturday morning and Paul got up nice and early and made them breakfast around 6am!
We spent the weekend working around the house and yard. I finally winterized the grass and planted some seed. We also did some redecorating. We have rearranged out furniture and put up new curtains and rods. It has made has a difference. (Pictures will come soon.) Sunday afternoon Paul had some guys over to watch football. We had a busy weekend.
