Tales from the Land of Canaan

Double-digits in Months aka Canaan’s Video Extravaganza!

Monday, January 24th, 2011

For Canaan’s last blog, we were all excited to have a “for sale” sign up in our yard.  Now, less than two weeks later, we are even more excited to have an “under conract” sign up instead!  It was heavenly to have a nice relaxing weekend together as a family without any of the stresses of rushing [...]
