Gingerbread

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we’re gearing up for Christmas on Mintwood Street.  But before we dive into all the cookies and jingle bells, I thought I’d recap some of the exciting things we’ve been up to the past few weeks.

Biggest and best news…for the first time in over three years, we can use the sink and take a shower in our bathroom!  After all this time showering in the basement, I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a nearly complete bathroom remodel.  Max is still working on building the medicine cabinet, but when that’s done I will definitely post pictures of the whole room.

The garden is pretty much done for the season, but we did experience some unusually warm weather in November with some interesting results out front. Not only were the irises pushing up through the soil, but our yellow rose bush started blooming again.
