More flooring

In the seemingly impossible effort to make every room in the house habitable, we made big progress in the down stairs Rec room. New floors! As you can see, I was a BIG help putting them in.

Random cuteness

Okay that was WAY too much about the house. What about me?!? I think you've been deprived of my extreme cuteness for too long. (geez mom.) So here's some cute pictures from the last few weeks that you've been missing.

Armed, dangerous and FABULOUS. I can destroy things just as well as Daddy!

Laundry Baby is still fun. And even better with a balloon.

Halloween. I was the cutest dragon ever. What does a dragon say? "Ah Chooo"... oh no, the toys got cooked.

My HUGE room

My new room. Mommy just wanted to paint over the wood paneling but Daddy wanted to tear it all out. So... the carpet and the paneling were history. Afterall they were much much older than me... maybe even older than Daddy!

Everything's gone. Only old ugly tile floor and shiny stuff on the walls were left.

New drywall yeah! Thanks Nana and G'pa!

Mommy and Daddy put down new cork flooring. It looks all crazy but is fun to jump on. And Daddy and Nana painted it a pretty blue.

Still no trim or shelving, but who cares? I've got TONS of TOYS!

And what more does a girl need?

Saga of the Walkin Closet

The Master Closet... we have often wondered what the previous owners were thinking... the master bedroom closet is definitely one of them. There was a closet within a closet but the actual closet wasn't deep enough for a hanger. Not even one of my baby hangers! So the decision was made to rip it out... and with it the lovely lace curtains.

One wall down. And whenever something comes down, another problem is discovered.

So another wall had to come down. They used cheap aluminum framing which means - no studs to attach things to. That just won't do for making a nice walking closet. I really think Daddy just liked tearing down the drywall!!

Hum... something is missing...

The new wall being built in the living room.

Grandpa Jim doing some drywall and electrical repairs, before drywalling the new wall (on the left).

Drywall going up!

Now its time to paint!! I love painting!! Really, I love anything where I can get messy and ruin my new clothes!

Daddy doing the tall people painting.

Soon we should have pictures of the painted closet... it might be a while longer until its an actual functional space though!

Nanna Lynn was so kind as to send us some before pictures of the house (borrowed from Redfin).

Upstairs small bedroom (future office)

Upstairs Master Bedroom (there is a large area at the other end of the room that is going to be a walk in closet)

Kitchen (this is going to be torn out)

Upstairs living room: the knee wall hides the stairwell; the kitchen is on the otherside of the stairwell.


One of two identical bathrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs)

Downstairs small bedroom (future guest room)

We're all moved into the new house... well at least all moved out of the old house. I've got a HUGE room now that I've already littered with toys. Eventually we'll get an internet connection so Mommy can post all the fun moving pictures and me dressed up for Halloween. "Trick or Treat!" Yummy candy!!
