The Hursh Homestead

So we've been pretty busy recently with a trip to Ikea for furnishings, multiple trips to Home Depot for odds and ends (everyone needs a new gas grill when you buy a new house!), the process of ordering blinds (yes, we still have a very lovely arrangement of sheets hanging in several windows and the rest are just open for the world to look in), Target trips (those will never end!), and a little incident with the dogs (already had some of the carpet professionally cleaned). But with all that said we've moved and and are now starting to feel settled...I think! Here's are some pictures of our house before it became our "home". I will hopefully have more pictures soon once everything is put away and the house looks presentable!

Bender's 40th Wedding Anniversary

Amy looking a lot like my mom in college....

Me looking a lot like my dad in college....

Mom in her wedding dress 40 years ago!

February 14th was my parent's 40th wedding anniversary so we decided to celebrate! My sister and I had a party for them at their home which included lots of friends and family! Cheers to another 40 years Mom and Dad!!!


So it's been a bit since I've updated but we've been busy! Here's a brief recap!

January - Matt gets hired at Cook Medical in Bloomington! We feel blessed that in this economy there are jobs to be had and a great job at that!

February - Matt starts his new job and travels 130 miles a day to get to Bloomington and back home. We decide to put the house up on the market.

March - House goes on the market, 15 showing and 10 days later the house is officially sold!

April - We close on the selling of the house and move into my parent's basement!

May - We've already seen close to 50 homes in the Greenwood/Center Grove area but we are hoping to find a great home to buy!

Christmas 2008

Christmas was full family, friends, and fun. Here are just a few pictures to show you what we did over the holidays....

Mindy, Nick, and Dave watching Christmas Vacation playing "Clark" our family tradition. Notice, Mindy is drinking from a moose mug!

Lisa, Lesley and I at Lesley's Christmas party. Lisa is expecting her second baby in February!

Matt hanging out with Wyatt, Lisa's adorable little boy.

Dave and his mom, Grandma Bobby

My dad, with a Christmas gift from Santa. The gift was wrapped using about 7 or 8 different pieces of scrap wrapping paper. (Interestingly enough, Santa's handwriting looked much like his own and he was pretty impressed with Santa's crafty work and the 2 pair of perfectly fitting jeans squeezed into the box!)
