It was a bit tainted....About a week before, hubby started feeling the start of a hernia. :( Other than that we had a fabulous time! So now, he's having surgery to correct this.
We got started right before he went in for surgery. I'm so glad he came down to help! :)))) I'm not so sure he's glad....
What a MESS!! I just kept bringing him boxes to go through. :)))
This pile is on it's way out! And plenty has gone to the garbage can!
We've lived in our home for 6 years now, and we found items that have not moved an inch since moving day. We kept asking ourselves, "Why did we keep these?" And "We haven't used this in 6 years...time to pitch!" We also have a lot of our children's things, even though both of them don't live at home, I snapped a lot of pictures asking if they still wanted items, or if they wanted items we were going to get rid of. :D
Ahhhh.... It feels so Good! We are nowhere near done, but progress has been made!
Cool, right? His real name was Nils Nilsson and it was changed to Nels Nelson. He emigrated from Sweden. Also a small Swedish Bible with his name engraved on it. I just found this all so interesting!
I also found my mother's little booties, birth certificates, marriage certificates, high school diplomas, even letters from my great grandfather to my great grandmother, and so many old pictures.
And maybe we'll do a bit of traveling... That would be fun!
