Kitchen Update

One more room is finished.  We LOVE the new floors...they make such a huge difference.  As you can see in the "before" pictures, the old tile in the kitchen wasn't even laid straight.  You can't really appreciate the bad color, how deep the grout was, or how it looked dirty all the time.  The flooring guys said it was one of the worst tiling jobs they'd ever seen. So we're so happy with the new floor--it makes the room so much warmer.  I had to take pictures at night so it's not as dark in the kitchen as it might at first appear.  Here are the before and after pictures:

Bathroom Update

 I know, I know...bathroom pictures are soooo exciting.  But it's one more room that's almost done (after we do the paint touch-up).  Here are the before and after pictures:

First Day of Preschool

The preschool we had signed up for finally started the Monday after Thanksgiving.  Grant was very excited and bouncing off the walls on the first day.  He seems to really love it and we're so thankful.


So the flooring people started working on the downstairs on my birthday.  We tried to be gone as much of the day as possible, then hung out upstairs for Kate's naptime.  This is how it looked the evening of my birthday after I found and uncovered the table and chairs.  

 They actually got the entire kitchen and laundry room done that day.  We love it!  It's so dirty in this picture.  I'll post the finished product soon.
The whole week we ended up going to bed by 8:30 every night since there was nowhere to sit.  :-)
