Home again, Home again, Jiggity Jig!

Well, after a week in warmer Georgia, we're home again in Colder PA! We had a very good time seeing Mandy's extended family over the Thanksgiving holiday, and talking, playing games, and building a pumphouse for Grandma Bell.

Travel was smooth, other than a God blessed flat tire that was caught by a good citizen who pointed it out during our trip home - change was quick, and necessary, and on our way again.

Glad to be home (Benn!) and in my own bed again. Kids running all over the house, as we get ready for the new arrival of the baby! Thanks for all your prayers, and hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!

Have a merry Christmas, as we remember another baby that came!

Benn and Mandy and the Kids!

Sink #1 installed and ready to go!

well, after a tough day doing stuff we've never done before, we got a sink installed in our kitchen downstairs - only 5 months with no water in the downstairs!!

Here's a very bad pic taken with my computer:

You'll get to try it out when you come up for a visit - which is open to anyone reading this!

Working on the Kitchen

Well, we've been hard at it - we're redoing the kitchen for the past 6 months - we're cutting into our brand new Amish-made counter tops tonight.

Here's some pictures for you to see.
We're all doing well - I've(Benn) been sick for about 3 weeks, and just getting over it. Mandy had another Dr. apt today - she's doing well with this pregnancy, and we're looking forward to another blessing from God in February. Keep in touch. You can reach either Mandy or I at our email addresses. If you don't know it, it's our first names at our last names (plural) dot com.

Thanks for all your prayers and if anyone wants to visit - we're up for that!! Come on up!
