|Our new stained glass lamp that my mother gave us as a house warming gift.|

|A few pictures waiting to be hung.|
|This is an oak dresser that my neighbor from the old 'hood had put out for the garbage men to cart away. Needless to say, I carried it right over to my garage as soon as I saw it. We have it in our new dining room now and it looks perfect!!|
|This is a view of our backyard from the dining room windows. We have an in-ground pool and patio around it. This was definitely one of the things about our new house that we used to bribe the kids into being okay with moving. : )|
I started decorating for Christmas today and I look forward to sharing more photos as the decorating progresses. I have so much more space to decorate this year which means I get to take things out that have been packed away in boxes for such a long time. : )
On a sadder note . . .
I think the hardest adjustment to do with our move has been on our fur babies. It's getting better and our dogs are starting to relax a bit more but it hasn't been easy. Two of my three cats have adjusted very well to now being indoor cats for the time being. My third cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, sadly got out of the house 10 days ago and we haven't seen him since. I've posted his photo every where and shared on Facebook numerous times. There have been some possible sightings but none of them have panned out. I'm just beside myself thinking about him being outside in a location that he knows nothing about. He was an outdoor cat when when we adopted him and he wanted nothing more then to get back outside from the time we moved. My plan was to ease him into going out but we believe he escaped thru an open window.
|Mr. Bigglesworth. : (|
I refuse to believe that I will never see him again. I've told the new owners of our old house to be on the look out for him. It would be quite a feat for him to make it back to our old house but I wouldn't put it passed him. He is a bad-ass Ninja cat if I've ever met one. : )
And another sad note . . .
My mother's beautiful Newfoundland Chloe was put to sleep today. She was the epitome of a gentle giant and had the most soulful eyes you ever saw on a dog. My mother gave her the best life but her ability to walk had greatly deteriorated recently and my mother knew it was time.
You will be missed beautiful Chloe. XOXOXOXOXO
Many blessings ~ Wendy
