I bought this house in November 2004 and the home inspector said that before I used the fireplaces I should get the chimneys swept. It only took four years to get the things cleaned! This weekend we made our first fire in our living room fireplace. Still haven't made one in the other fireplace; maybe we will do that in another four years!?
Of course I have pictures of our first fire. I tried to get Allison to sit by the fire and take her picture. She made some excuse about being 9 months pregnant, so I didn't press the issue.
