Home Improvement

Little by little our house is becoming more a home. Two weeks ago Burke's brother, Jess, came to help us on the house. They made the little window between the dining area and kitchen twice as big and put in the new flooring. Things are looking so much better than they did a month ago.

Before: (There was gross carpet in the dining area. I don't have a picture.)
The Process:
Goodbye ugly linoleum flooring!Yeah, we looked like trailer trash with all of our appliances on the front porch and the torn up flooring in the yard. I'm sure the neighbors loved it.
After:
We finally got to set up our new table (I waited six months for that), and we love it!

I thought I'd post a picture of McKay's "dresser" since I put it together yesterday. I think it is so cute.
I can already tell everything is not exactly going to stay put. . . .

It looks so great! I can't wait to see it in a few weeks. I hope there is floor space for me to through my blanket out.

Good work.
Is McKay's dresser an Ikea dresser? It looks familiar. He is getting so big, and I am sad that I only got to spend one night playing with him. I miss you!!!
I hope "The" Ohio is treating you well. Any luck on jobs?

Looking at those pictures of the renovations brings out so many emotions! I still have a picture of you two in our home helping us get ready for tile and tearing out all that stuff on the wall with brittany too. It looks like you guys are making good progress. And it looks great! And McKay wow, he is getting bigger isn't he! We miss you two!
