A few pictures of our house

Before I get anymore polite but persistant emails regarding not having shown you all pictures of our new they are. Now, please remember it is still a work in progress. Most of these pictures were taken at the end of August. We are still waiting on delivery of a few items that were "lost" by the storage folks in Colorado five plus years ago. There was a lot that needed to be done to this house to make it a bit more liveable. However, we are slowly but surely making it our own. :o) Thanks to Craig's List...something that wasn't widely available or maybe didn't even exist when we left the U.S. in 2005, we have bought some gently used furniture to fill up some spaces in our house. In fact, I just got back from a trip to Fremont, NE (about an hour from here) to pick up an entertainment center for the as I said, everything is still evolving...but you get the gist.
