Merry Christmas

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Merry Christmas everyone! We got together with all the families for Christmas again, as in the years past we had a great time. This was our first Christmas with Soda. About a week before Christmas Rebecca was upstairs and i noticed Soda had a new bunny toy, her hold one has no stuffing. So I asked Rebecca where it came from and she informed me that Soda got into her stocking in the bedroom while Rebecca was in there.

Soda Christmas

The fence guys showed up and put some poles in the ground but they needed extra time for the concrete to harden, too bad they missed some nice weather. A few days later they showed up right after some rain and had to play in the mud as the put up the pickets. The didn’t seem to move to quick they finished three sides took a day off and came back to finish the rest.

It didn’t long for Soda to find the extra space in between the pickets. The fence guys left a slightly bigger gap in the rear gate but Soda couldn’t get her shoulder past. The front gate could have been her escape route but we noticed here testing it out so I put a rock in front of the wide gap. About a week later the fence installer came back for a quality and satisfaction report, we told him to fix the gap in the front gate and couple days later it was fixed.

Fence for Soda

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

The fence posts got installed today after hitting a bump. Our homing association approved our location and the style of our fence but Jefferson township rejected our permit. Our lot has a 25 foot tree preserve (no build zone) in the back it so we will only be able to fence half our backyard. Well at least Soda will be able to roam free. It should be finished on Friday, after a day for the concrete to cure.

Both cars are in the garage

As everyone knows unpacking is the hardest part and tonight i was able to get both cars in the garage. I got hooks and nails in the walls of the garage to hang things up and moved a few more things into the basement. No more scraping ice off the car windows!

Happy birthday Mom

We celebrated my Mother’s birthday today, all the McCoy’s were at our new home in Blacklick to celebrate. We had a chicken salad lunch with several toppings to choose from. The roads were a bit slick and my parents took a detour because Brett notified them of an accident on 270.
