Early Christmas Present

Just when I thought our luck was running out to see our house before the end of the year I get a call.

Last night on my way home from the dentist, Mike calls to tell me the best news... we got the keys! Thank the Lord, I was beginning to think there was no hope at all for this week. Prayers were answered!

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family willing to help me out. Since we celebrate my immediate family Christmas on Christmas Eve after my grandparents' Christmas, mom and dad was willing to paint on Christmas Day for us. I'm trying my best to talk them out of it, it's Christmas for heaven's sake so they need to relax and enjoy the holiday. Plus Mike and I will be gone all throughout the day celebrating his families' Christmases. Just wouldn't be right having them work on Christmas especially when we can't be there to help. It was a nice thought on their part.

We're still waiting to close on the house, but at least we can go in and start on the painting to make our house OURS. A very nice early Christmas present to Mike and I.
