Video Complete!

Finally, a short video tour of the basement renovation at about 90% finished.
(Sorry the sound cuts out - hopefully that can get fixed!)

It might have to be another video tour...

I've been trying to figure out how to best share all the changes to the house, up & down, inside & out. It doesn't matter from what angle or what time of day I take photos, they just don't capture the details of change at E7982 Lostview Lane. That said, for all you waiting on photos, I have not forgotten you! I just might have to work on another video tour instead. That's fun, right?! And maybe by posting this here, it will hold me accountable for doing it. Tomorrow? Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, I'll share this photo taken on a lovely fall morning last week. Any ideas on what to do with the dozens (hundreds?) of pumpkins that remain post-autumn? The chickens can only eat so many...

We went down to Chicago for a weekend and stayed for Halloween - great to see Nathan, Barbara, Ivy and Sanne, stayed with our gracious friends, the Johnsons. And so fun to share Chicago with our boys. Even after living there for 6 years, that city will never cease to amaze me with its vastness. We even fit in a train ride downtown for a visit to the aquarium.

And without further ado - the costumes:

Spooky Tree and Clown Bat

(If I sent Christmas cards, this would be the one.)
Seasons greetings from the Newhouses!
