We have been in the house for over a week now and it is livable. For proof, here is a picture of the first thing I baked in the kitchen. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing, y'all! Mmmm. These were made on Thursday night and then enjoyed by my coworkers on Friday.

The weekend was nice. Both sets of parents were in town (basketball tickets had been purchased pre-home purchase) and were a tremendous help. Dad and Mike got the new TV functioning but the wall mount didn't happen. That will have to be a later success. Gene and Mike installed a new screen door on the front porch that matches the white trim. See below:

The moms were quick to unpack boxes and help organize. Diane also came by on Friday and helped with organization in the kitchen. Who knew I had four bottles of distilled white vinegar?

As the sun set this evening, Mike and I were cleaning up the junk on the front porch and met some nice neighbors who were on a run with their dog, Thunder. This chat, in addition to the neighbors across the street visiting last night, made us feel already at home in the Wiles Hill community and we think we're gonna be just fine here.
