Glad to be home

Well, we had a nice time in Missouri for Thanksgiving. I got to spend Thanksgiving evening with the flu. Not fun for me. I was in the hotel and everyone else went out for a while so I could rest. At least I didn't gain any weight for this holiday, huh? :) I am doing better today but still not a 100% yet. Wish it would just go away.
The good thing is no one else has gotten it yet,and I hope and pray they don't b/c we have a very busy week and on Friday we are going to Madrigals. It is a Christmas program put on by the high school,and our youngest daughter has a lead part in it this year. She is a knight. If you don't know what Madrigals is a play put on by the kids....they are all British and wear the old fashioned outfits and even have the accent. It is a very good program they put on. I will try to get pictures but it is really difficult b/c of the lighting in there. It is worth every penny we spent to go.Just hope Katie doesn't get sick this year.She always gets run down this week b4 performing, b/c they practice every night until 10 or so. I have had her take extra vitamin C and vitamins. Hope they kick in and start working.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your families. Can't believe Christmas is right around the corner. We are putting up the tree tomorrow afternoon while Brie is home to help.

Thanksgiving week

Am so glad for this week. This is a week where we should all be thankful for the people and things that the Lord has done for us in our lives. We have been soooo busy with the remodeling of our house that it will be a nice break this week to be with family and be able to relax for a while.
I am so glad that I only have to work two days this week. I am looking forward to it. Tomorrow we pick up Brie and she will be with us for the rest of the week until next Sunday. I love having all the kids home. It doesn't happen that often anymore.
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy spending time with your families this week.

remodling put on hold....

Well, we almost got the remodeling done. Now hubby has to work 12 hours a day for awhile and won't be able to get all the remodeling done until this weekend. I guess I can wait that long but I want to get it done!!!!! I guess I shouldn't say too much b/c he is covering for a friend at work that may be losing his wife. She hasn't been doing well for a while now. Her body is shutting down.She has had a bad drinking problem for a long time and it is now catching up with her. Sad.
Will update you when we get back to painting and remodeling.

More projects

Here is part of the remodel we have done to the foyer. The paint looks pinkish in this picture but it is a toupe. It depends on the lighting what color it looks like. I really like the way it is turning out. We have worked every night to get the moldings painted and get rid of the dark look they had in the house b4. Next we are working on the living room. It will be more of a tan color. Stay tuned for upcoming pictures:)

Happy Birthday Em

I am so far behind on posting. Yesterday was our middle daughter's birthday. We went out for dinner but today we are celebrating with the whole family. Our oldest daughter came home late last night so will be here today and tomorrow to celebrate with us. Am so glad she came home early. We may go to an early movie this afternoon after all the girls are done with their babysitting jobs they have today.
It is suppose to snow today. We'll see. We got some really pretty snow yesterday but it didn't stick to the ground. I think our warm days are done for now.
We are finishing the front door today and putting in trim on the floor. The front of the house is really starting to look nice. May strip wallpaper and paint today too. Will see how things go. Lots of repairs are needed and not enough time.
Have a great weekend!!!

Weekend project

This is what we have been working on all weekend. Isn't it pretty??? I am so thrilled to have my new front door in. We still have a little trimming to do as you can see in the 2nd picture but it is coming along nicely. We have 2 windows to install this week so if I am not on much.... you'll know why. :)
