How To Post Comments

I took this from Sonya and Chris' blog, but I thought it might be helpful!

I know that some of you have tried posting comments on the blog unsuccessfully. Here are some notes that may help.First you click on the word "comments" on the bottom of the post you would like to reply to. This will take you to a screen where you can type your message (and read messages that others have posted). It will then ask you to type the letters shown in the box (some type of security thing) and then you can set up a Blogger account (pretty easy) or simply sign in as anonymous.You can also preview your comments before you post your message. This will show you how it will look and you can check out spelling.

Snowstorm 2008

We have been working on the house in Columbus ever since we closed in January and we are finally getting to a point where the rooms are coming together. Last weekend we worked on refinishing the wood floors in the bedroom and the dining room. Andy, Lori and Michaela came down to visit and the boys worked hard and got ALOT done. So after a week of letting the new floors dry, we wanted to get all the furniture moved in this weekend and get the house put together. So of course, we had 12 inches of snow this weekend! But, Tim came down to the house early on Friday afternoon so that we could get a lot done on the house, and to beat all the snow.

So, with all of the snow, we got to work and put all the furniture in the rooms. Tim also worked on the bathroom and put the new floor in. While we were waiting on the glue to dry in the bathroom, we shoveled all the snow out of the driveway and then after we had spent about 5 hours without a toilet (due to finishing the bathroom floor). Which means, we decided to brave the snow to head to Meijer's for some groceries and a trip to the bathroom :)

We finally got everything put back together including the toilet, so the house is coming together and is really starting to feel like home. See all the before and after pictures below!

Welcome to the Park

Hi Everybody!

I decided to join the bandwagon and start a blog. I thought it would be a good way to keep everybody updated with our busy lives. And, give me something else to do - not that I'm busy or anything :) Since we recently bought a house in Minerva Park in Columbus, I'm sure there will be a lot of adventures in the new house. Check back every once in a while to see all the new adventures Tim and I have gotten in to!
