New Bedroom


Here is a picture of cute Davie reading a book. I used to worry that he was never going to like books. He never wanted me to read to him. However, in the last few months he has really gotten into books. I love it, and his vocabulary has really expanded ever since.

Grace demonstrating the beauty that was mine and Dan's bedroom. How do you like the duct-taped carpet?! Boy these people were creative. Poor Dan couldn't get the tape off with anything but a blade (and believe me he tried a lot of other methods.) But, his work paid off and the hard wood floors look gorgeous.

Grace was oh so happy to help sand. How do you like her saftey goggles?

David wanted to help too. He always wanted to sand just underneath me though, and so it was hard not to cover him in the dust.

And the finished product. I need to take more pics so you can see the color better. But, needless to say, I love it! We have been sleeping on a matress on the floor for eight months, so a bed is like heaven. We found those great wardrobes at Ikea so now we can unpack our clothes too. It is amazing how much you learn to appreciate the little things. :)

Man, all this talk about Ikea, I'm dying to check it out! The place looks great! Duct-taped carpet, that's the funniest thing I've ever heard. Wow, it's so weird to see little Davie so BIG!

I love that you went with a red wall - I still love the color you did in your bedroom in your parent's house. I forgive you for not coming to visit - RSV is scary suff! I hope Grace is feeling better - your kids are so dang cute!

When I was a little girl living in Logan, my parents bedroom had the same "style" of carpet. I love what you did with your bedroom!
