Here is a picture of Elijah and I grouting the boys closet. One Friday night all 7 of us were working on grouting the kitchen. If only I had had my camera and could have captured the moment...it will be one we will never forget. It was late that night when we finished and we all enjoyed a bowl of icecream for our hard work. :)

For some of our flooring we chose tile. We were very blessed by Bryan's youngest brother and his dad coming to help. Rusty laid the backer board for us with Isaac's help. Bryan's dad put in our outlets and hung ceiling fans. They were a big help! Isaac has learned so much during this building process.
One of the things we are not crazy about is painting. To save money we did some ourselves and then paid for a little help
The boys room has a different color on each wall. We are trying to do a camo look. :)
Both the kids bathrooms are this color...I say it is khaki color. This picture happens to be of the girls bathroom.
I would say that choosing paint colors was one of the hardest choices to make and I am so glad to have that decision behind us.

The last time we were in Alabama it worked out to just being me and Sarah on the drive home. (Long story that I am not sure I will get around to telling. :)) Anyway...my time with her is always fun and includes something good to eat. Dairy Queen is one of our "special" treats so we stopped there for lunch and got a blizzard to go. She got Mint Oreo and I got Butterfinger. Of coarse we did get to taste each others and ended up swapping. :) We played the "What is your favorite Blizzard?" game and now its your turn...What is your favorite Blizzard flavor?
A view from the big window back toward the bedrooms. The door straight ahead will be the boys bathroom, then to the right will be the boys room, and to the left will be the girls room. I think a BIG bookcase right here in this area would be great! :)

After much research Bryan decided to go with sprayed in insulation. This is the only picture I have of the insulation. It is amazing at the difference in tempature inside the house once the insulation was in. The upstairs was hot as ever but once the insulation was in you could actually work up there without pouring sweat. I am sure this will help with our power bill and save us money in the years to come.
This is where Bryan and I sleep.
