The house is coming along, slowly but surely. The kitchen has had an entire facelift - painted walls, ceiling, cabinets, as well as new appliances, sink, faucet, countertop, and floor. I'm really enjoying the kitchen now. We had planned to buy all new cabinets, but couldn't (our septic has to be replaced.) So we repaineted them instead.
Garr has been working SO hard. He was worn out after working in the kitchen and laid down on the floor to play with Rocky (our puppy.) You can see that he fell asleep there :)
We got the pool fixed and that has been so fun and relaxing for the whole family!
And we got animals. lots of animals. It started with Emelyn wanting a bunny. So we went to the pet store and got her the cutest little lop-eared bunny, Honey. Then Abby wanted a kitten. So after the pet shop, we went to the SPCA and Abby picked out an adorable teeny tiny little kitten, Cami (named for our adorably teeny tiny little friend, Cami!) While at the SPCA, Garr just fell in love with a puppy, Rocky. A Brazillian Mastiff 75 lb 5 mo old puppy. yep. He drools too. a lot. So we brought our happy little extended family home. And then the next day my cell phone rings. Olivia won a coloring contest at the local library! Out of over 200 entries! Guess what her prize is? 2 Gerbils! Welcome to the zoo, Sarah and Cutie.
We finished the dining room floor this morning and I am in love. It looks beautiful. Now we just have to move our furniture down here! Sorry about the picture quality - it was the best I could do!
And last but not least, our puppy has been afraid to climb the stairs. He finally ventured up on his own today, but was too chicken to come back down on his own. I couldn't resist sharing these photos with you. He might be huge, but he is a little baby.

Now please excuse me while I scream. I cannot get the spacing to work on this post for anything. Sorry we'll both have to deal with it. :)
