The first week of November 2009 saw two major events in our lives. The christening of our daughter and the frames of our walls were put up.
Our daughter Niamh was christened on a beautiful Sunday. The sun was shining and the weather was beautiful.
Our daughter is truly blessed.
We had all our family and friends down for the event and over to my parents place for the after party. While we couldn't yet host a party at our place it didn't stop us from bringing everyone over for a tour of the house. For us there was allot of progress, but for those who had never seen the place before it just looked like a major renovation sight. As we showed them around we tried to explain where the rooms would be and what the house would look like when it was finished.
Everyone was really interested and excited for us, but to be honest most of them had a hard time envisioning the final outcome. To get an idea of what the tour was like here are a few photos.
While to us these frames meant mudrooms, pantries, bedrooms and bathrooms, to everyone else it was just a bunch of wood. We now were very eager to get things done so everyone could see what we saw. We had high hopes of being in our house for Christmas......however with a home renovattion things don't always go as planned.
