Return to Normalcy

I feel like things are finally back to normal after the holidays. We had a great time with my family in Atlanta for Christmas. Brian and Kate and the kids and my mom all stayed with us for about 5 days or so. We went down to Andy & Shelby's house for Christmas dinner. It was nice that Allen had so much time off over Christmas...it was a much needed break for me. Everett had a blast playing with all of his nieces and nephews. I think he's kind of in withdrawl now from all the attention he was getting. You can see tons of new photos on our flickr site.

Lindsay and Michael's Vietnamese reception was here in Atlanta last Saturday. It was fun getting to see them again and having Allen's parents stay with us. They all stuck around on Sunday because Allen got installed as a deacon at Intown. It was a nice service and I'm so proud of him. It's such a perfect fit for him and I know he'll do a great job.

We now are back to working on our house projects. On Saturday Allen and his dad went all the way to Acworth to pick up a desk we bought off of Craig's List. It is perfect and it was only $75. It's got tons of drawer space and a big cabinet on the left which holds our 2 towers. Now Everett isn't getting into all of our cords. It's marvelous! Also, we took a ton of stuff to Goodwill...no more TV's in our playroom, Kate! :)

Now we're going to finally start painting our playroom and kitchen and we'll be working on shelves for our playroom. I'm really looking forward to finishing these projects and it looks like we'll have some time the next several weekends to get a lot accomplished.
