House stuff!! A RAK!! What's going in the cumulative RAK box??

Up until now, you couldn't really tell much of anything was going on with the house. The electricity went up and the plumbing went in. I'm so glad Eric put radiant floor heating in the basement. Now when I scrap, my toes will stay toasty!
Yesterday, the flatwork was done on the basement floor and garage. You can really see the house coming together now the the floors are poured.

Me, Connor, Ryan and my mother-in-law put our hands in the wet cement in the garage. My mother-in-law cracks me up. I called her and told her I was picking her up and taking her to the house so she could leave her mark in the garage. In the meantime, Norma Jean called and invited her out to lunch. She told Norma she was waiting on me to get her for the handprint thing. Then she says, "I guess Theresa thinks I'm gonna die is why she wants my handprints". You have to know her. She cracks us all up. She is one of the funniest people I know and the funny thing is, she doesn't try to be funny. She just is. She's funny in a kooky kind of way.
It occurred to me that I haven't thrown anything in the Cumulative RAK box for the month of October. If you don't know about the Cumulative RAK box, every month I'll throw a prize into this big box. In December, in honor of Christmas, I will have Connor draw someone's name out of his sombrero (if all the names will fit!) to win the whole loot! How it works is, for every comment you place on my blog, you will get a ticket to go in the drawing. The more you visit, the more chances you'll have to win. It's not too late to play so don't be shy about visiting often and posting!! So for the month of October, the cutest wood stamps and ribbon set below will go in the box!!
And in celebration of Halloween, I will RAK the Halloween looking font acrylic stamps below by Sunday. Just leave a message on what your weekend plans are in the comments section and Connor will draw a name from the comments to win these stamps!!
Happy trick-or-treating!

The house is coming along!
