We are spending our first Halloween in the house giving out candy, something we were never able to do in our apartments. I'm looking forward to seeing how many trick-or-treaters we get!

Happy Halloween from Northcrest!

I almost forgot

This is the light that the Nelson lamp replaced. I don't think I need to express how ugly we thought this thing was.

Let there be light.

So even before I owned a house I always knew I wanted a George Nelson bubble lamp. Today that dream has come true thanks to my bosses Mark and Loren. This was a wedding gift for Susan and I. I am lucky to work with such good people and even luckier that they have good taste. Now on to the pictures! Oh, and apparently it is a bad idea to take a picture using the flash when a person is working with live wires. Sorry dad, but thanks for the help.

I already find myself just standing there staring at the light with a smile on my face. I'm sure Susan thinks I'm a weirdo.


We just had our first garage sale at the house and we did great. Most of what we sold was old junk stuff of my mom's but we did have some new in the box kitchen items that were wedding gifts to my parents in the early 70's. We kept a few of the nicer items for ourselves they go so well with the house. Hopefully the next neighborhood garage sale will be just as good.

We have a new banner! That is all, really.
