We survived our Christmas parties...barely. Norovirus (stomach flu) spread through my family pretty quickly. I have not caught it yet, but Chase was not so lucky. We got a lot of things for our house. There were a lot of things we didn't have and have never needed until now like rakes, shovels, water hoses, the list goes on! We also got some fun things like a porch swing, a bird feeder, a flag pole, and a very cool door bell that you can download MP3s onto. We need ideas for songs to play on our door bell so feel free to comment with your suggestions. I have only thought of the Three's Company theme song that says "Come and knock on our door, we've been waiting for you." Or there's the 70s disco song Ring My Bell. We can change the song it plays thankfully so we won't get tired of hearing one song repeatedly. More pictures are in the gallery from a trip to the Great Wolf Lodge, Christmas, and more pictures of the house.
