Getting Closer

We have been working so hard the past three weeks on our house, getting there at around 9:00 in the morning and working until dark, and it has come so far!! My parents came over and stayed with us for 2 weeks and helped us. I am so grateful for them and for all of their help. While my dad was slaving away at our new house, my mom was taking care of my kids, cleaning, cooking, and doing our laundry.
My dad and I did all the tile work on the floors and shower/tubs. I think they turned out so good. Then Shane and my dad laid all the hard wood in the kitchen and entry way.

Getting the wood floor was a total nightmare!! The first shipment was wrong, and we found out they couldn't even get me the wood I originally picked out. So After they shipped me a couple different samples, I found another one I liked. We went up to get it in SLC on the day it was supposed to come in, and well it didn't come in. So......We had to drive back up the next day and when we opened up the box to look at it......WRONG AGAIN!!!! They sent me smooth wood instead of hand scraped. Long story short....I was mad, but under a time crunch because my cabinets were going to be installed in a matter of days, so I had to take it (not without making them fill really bad and getting a pretty good discount).

So here are a few pictures of our progress..........

Then little Dax is sick for the very first time. I feel so bad for him. This is how he looked when he woke up this morning :-(




Oh yes......and did I mention we took ANOTHER trip to the ER?????
I think it was Thursday night, we were done working for the day and back at our house in Redmond. It was about 11:30 pm and Shane remembered that he forgot to move his trailer off the side of the road. So headed back up to our house to move it. Well about 20 min later, I heard him come home, and he peeked his head around the corner where I was sitting with my family, and told me to come here. I new something was up. I went to see what was going on and he had a shirt wrapped around his arm. "Ugh, Shane what did you do?!!! Mind you he got 6 stitches in his hand about a month ago. He said, "it was dark and I was moving the trailer and cut my arm on something sharp" blah blah blah.........then showed me this......
"do you think I need stitches?"
"HMMMMM.....well there is fat hanging out, so I'm going to guess YES!"



Awww, good times.

wow, it looks great. bummer about the flooring, although I'm sure it looks perfect anyway. I really like the black cabinetry. Matt was wondering if Shane has good insurance... ;)
