New house and NEW year!

Things have been CRAZY since our last post! As most of you know, we did INDEED get the house!  Here we are signing the papers!

The next day we went by and were given our keys!

Buying the house turned out to be the easy part, in reality it was the moving that proved to be the challenge.

It took a while to pack up the apartment...

THEN it was time to move into the new house!  Here's the first box!

 Which was soon followed by a few more!

 Our new house has hummingbirds - can you find him?

There are also a plethora of cats for Olive to watch out the window.  One is bigger than she is!

One of the largest city parks is only a few blocks away!

At a shop down the street we found the perfect (maybe strangest) ornament for our first Christmas in the new house!

 On Christmas we went to a friend's condo for dinner and beautiful view of Portland!
We rang in the new year at good ol' Voodoo Doughnuts! Renee shouted "Happy New Years!!!" in the middle of the restaurant and everyone cheered.

Renee found the "unique" lamp at a local vintage store.  We are pretty sure that the last owner was Luke Skywalker.

Renee was also VERY excited to find this old school chair!
