When it rains, it pours

Avid readers may have noticed that there has been a prolonged lull in updates… I basically didn’t update anything from the middle of September until now. I apologize for this, with the lame and utterly expected excuse that I’ve been busy. But in any case, your wait is over. (Merry Christmas!)

I have not only uploaded ALL the daily progress photos from the end of September through today, but I have also written detailed blog entries starting from the middle of September until up to Rob & Margaret’s wedding in mid-October. (I still need to do a couple more.) For those keeping count, that’s 13 albums and 19 blog entries, replete with inline photos. On a perfectly beautiful Saturday. Just for you.

Below is a helpful table of the new entries, complete with summary photo.
