We finally have a "backyard"!

God has blessed us with a beautiful new home here on Weston Circle- where we have lived almost a year now. But we always dreamed of making the ski slope (our backyard) into something more practical. Mowing the steep incline wasn't Jamie's favorite hobby, so we decided to have a deck built over the steepest part of the hill. It is SO wonderful to be able to step out the backdoor and actually be able to take more than a few steps. We now have some patio furniture that we've enjoyed some dinner on and Jamie put a fire pit in the bench area (of course Jamie has to incorporate fire anywhere he can). We even roasted marshmallows last night and made smores! And, yes, there is still a good section of steep hill to the right of the porch- just enough for some good sledding this winter!

Mr. and Mrs. Cornett

...and here is a more "normal" photo of us. (Taken at our friend Jim and Emily's wedding in December.) It is definitely "Wedding Season" with a few of our close friends getting married in June. Melanie & Brian on June 9th and Erin & Evan on June 23rd. Of course, after seeing how happily in love Jamie and I are after 5 years- who wouldn't want to be married...! :)

Trick or Treat?

Ok, "Everyone's doing it." So I guess I better get on the bandwagon and try my hand at some blogging. I'm not really sure I have anything to say that anyone would want to read, but I'm always up for trying something new. And, no, I didn't go blond and rescue Jamie from jail- this is a photo from our Halloween outing this weekend with some friends. Though I have to admit I didn't hate the blond look- excpet everytime I walked past a mirror I saw my sister, Denise!
