Summer at 65

Sorry for the horribly blurry pictures...obviously I need some practice at the action shots, but I had to post these because my kids (plus Jake the next door neighbor) were SO excited with the recent 65 degree weather, that they dawned their swimsuits and jumped on the tramp with the sprinkler on! Seriously guys? 65?

They really tried hard to convince me of how hot they were, and I almost believed them...except when all four little jaws were chattering like crazy after the jumping ended...

Summer's not quite here...but it's on its way!

The girls are so cute camped out in the living room as we awaited new carpet!!! They only had to endure 2 nights of living room sleeping before their new room was all put together- and you would have thought it was Christmas at the our house...the kids were so excited, it was VERY hard to get to sleep!

Addison still had to be in his room the nights of "camping"- Can you believe we found wood floors underneath our carpet?!? It really killed me to carpet over it again, but it was in really rough shape and re-doing wood floors would have taken way more time than we had planned carpet it is :( It is nice carpet though and I think it will grow on me...

And here are some basement-progress pictures. We have had SO much help from our family and friends- THANK YOU!! For all the painting parties and moving furniture around and organizing, etc- YOU ARE WONDERFUL!!

Primed and painted!- coming soon: THE FINAL PRODUCT! Kelly is installing his "media room components" as we speak! (Speaking of feeling like Christmas, he is positively giddy)

Come hang out with us in our new basement soon!!

I've been thinking about you! How's that tummy of yours doing?

Very exciting to be getting new carpet. I'd say that it is perfect timing. The basement is looking amazing too!

Thanks for letting us stay and hang out in the new basement. It was beautiful. What a lot of work. Thanks again for the hospitality and the quick visit! Is that baby here yet? Deb & Family.
