HI everyone! I am sorry I haven't posted in awhile, we have been BUSY getting this house ready to SELL!!! I wanted to show you the TRAIN room, that is now dismantled. I will show you the process, but I forgot to take pictures before we started so I have to give you this link. Please go look at the pictures here then you can come back and see the dismantling. Hope that makes sense!!!! Here is the link:

Ok, looked pretty neat, huh? Joe created that room (I helped a little) many years ago. It was alot of fun to share it at our annual open house at Christmas and with friends grandchildren. The adults enjoyed it too!!!! So here we go with the dismantling.
 We had started taking some of the train cars off the board at this point. And all the Dept. 56 pieces are off and packed.
 All of the "snow" and cedars had to be vacummed up.

 Joe also had extra cars on these special shelves around the room.
 Joe's brother found this OLD train sign in Michigan. You can see that people had used it for target practice, notice the dents in it? The newer signs are an X rather than a cross like this.
 Some os the cars, packed in their boxes. All of the boxes then got packed in pplastic bins.....20 of them!

 Aren't the tunnels neat?

 Making big progress!
 Poor Joe had to remove hundreds of screws from the board.

 1/2 of the board is gone.

 The secong half is empty and being vacummed.
 IT'S DONE!!!!!! Now we have to paint the room and clean the carpet.
 It is so hard to believe this room is empty, it hasn't looked like this in many years......

 This is Joe's favorite picture that was in the room.
He will have a MUCH bigger space to put the trains up in the new house but we know it will be awhile, we will have other priorities first:) I know this is kinda a backwards "metamorphisis" but I will join some of these parties:
