Sleepy Time

Carissa loves her new play room. I let her watch a movie the other day and she didn't even last 10 minutes.

We've Been A Little Busy

We've been so busy this past week trying to the the house in Rolla cleaned up and ready for us to move this past Saturday. Now all we do is work on getting our stuff put away and settling in to our new house.

So, I haven't had much time to take many pictures. But here is a picture of Carissa and my dad from a few weeks ago when we had some snow.

The Bathrooms

We started by ripping everything out of the bathrooms (cabinets, toilet, and existing vinyl). Below are pictures of our master bathroom.

With just backerboard:

We should have the toilet, cabinets, and trim back in in the next day or so after we paint.

New Carpet!

We got the carpet installed on the first floor today. It is a very exciting day for us. No more OSB floors to walk on. The basement carpet gets put in tomorrow. We've got a look of work done on the house this past week, including getting two of our bathrooms tiled (with the excellent help of a friend). I'll post pics of that soon.

Snow Day

We were out playing in the snow on Saturday and Carissa was having a blast throwing snow balls. Here hands got cold and she's learned to stick them in her pockets.

Little Helper

Carissa wanted to help us so bad last night. So, we let her have a go at it.

She LOVED it!

Paint Day Recap

We started off Saturday with almost the whole upstairs primed and ready for a topcoat.

Our paint color is Valspar's Mesa Tumbleweed. We had some great help getting it on the walls. Thanks to our friends and family that could come and help.

We have carpet coming in the next couple of weeks so we still have a lot yet to paint and a few bathrooms to tile. It's hard work but a lot of fun. 

For fun, here is Carissa, who has started telling me that the flash is "bright" and covers her face.
