A Little Present for Mom and Dad

Posted on December 20, 2007 @ 10:01 am

As Christmas approaches, I am making my final purchases for gifts for the holidays.  I have had to double check my purchases to make sure I haven’t missed anyone, and it looks like there is only one gift left: the gift for my inlaws.

Now, I call my wife’s parents mom and dad, and I have for many years.  They have never been very well off, and I thought years ago that we would buy them a home when we had the money.  Thankfully, our business has been going very well, and this is the year that it will happen.

We have been looking at Asheville real estate for the past few months, trying to find them a place.  Even though there were many Asheville condos we looked at, it wasn’t until last week when we checked out an ad in the paper (it was poor English and read "real estate for sale Asheville") that we found what we had been looking for.

We just finished getting the property transferred to their names yesterday, and the locks changed as well.  So, we are going to wrap up a picture of their place, and their keys, and give it to them Christmas day.  I think they will be happy and surprised at the same time – I cannot wait to see their reaction.
