Basement has a coat of paint!


No baby yet! But I am technically not due until the weekend. I guess I have to wait a little longer.

First coat of paint went up in the basement today!!

Doors I think go on tomorrow.

Final coat of paint to happen Monday.

Carpet should go in next week somewhere middle to end of the week.

Not sure when the baseboards will happen

Bathroom has a lot to do still but that could happen next week too???

Funny Girl!

I don't know where she is going....but she is for sure ready for anything!

Well the baby has finally decided to cooperate and turn head down. Which I am very happy about. However, I now just have to wait for baby to decide when to come. It is Jan 9th and I have about 20 days until my official due date. Still have some things to do to get ready baby #4s arrival. But slowly they are getting done!

Our basement is getting there. The dry wall is up and now we are ready for the next step. I can NOT wait for it to be done! We need to go pick out paint and carpet and maybe next week sometime we can fit that in.

I can't wait to use it and set up the rooms! Especially set up my scrapbook stuff. I really miss working on it and even if I don't get much done it will be nice to be able to go down and work on some things when I do have a free moment....which with 4 kids could potentially be almost never. But I am optimistic! I can't wait for the kids toys and stuff to also go downstairs to their own place!!!

Two things I guess I just have to be patient about!

Sarah is talking quite a bit right now. She also sings a version of Twinkle Twinkle, Sing Sing Sing(a praise and worship song), and the Dora song. It is soooooo cute! I have to get it on video.

Nathan is working on printing in kindergarten. He will have some homework now over the next few weeks and he is very excited about far anyway!

Jacob is doing awesome with his reading. He has moved up two levels since before Christmas. I think the glasses are also helping with this. The transition to wearing the glasses has gone quite well and he seems to feel like they really help him.

Kids Club and Praise and Worship Time!

Jacob loves to dance!
Nathan was singing with Daddy!

Sarah just wanted to be close to Daddy!

We arrived early that night and Sarah found this car. She LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! It was motorized and working and she did not want to get off it! She had a great time driving around the basement of the church.
