Christmas is over...

It's kind of sad. You always build it up and then it's over so quick. Oh well! Graham had a great Christmas season. He had five "present opening" sessions. He received some great presents, probably more than he needs, of course, but who can resist his cute little face? Here's a few pictures from Christmas.
This is Graham opening a present. See his enthusiasm.
Here's one of Graham with Grandma and Grandpa. He looks out of it.

Here he is in front of the tree on Christmas morning.
Here we are when we made Christmas cookies.

Now stay tuned for more posts as renovations of 2009 begin!!!

3 Months & Counting....

I know it's been a while since I posted last, but we didn't do too much and I lost motivation. I'll post pics soon of the finished downstairs bathroom. So you can see how that turned out. But what really motivated me to start posting again is that we started construction on the nursery. Only 3 months left until little baby girl Inge arrives. Because the room we will use for the nursery is pretty small, we wanted to get rid of the drop ceiling to make it not feel so closed in. So, Taylor started busting up the drop ceiling. Here's the first hole.
Here's another shot of the whole drop ceiling torn out besides the framing.
Isn't the old wall paper lovely! We think this was a kitchen in it's former life?

So, that's it for now. I'll do my best to get those bathroom pics up soon and keep you updated on the nursery progress. I'm so excited. The plan is to do it shabby chic....pink, white, green & red! I can't wait!
