Step 2

So the fun is in full swing. We are busily working on the new house and trying to get it ready to move into. So far it looks much worse then before but I'm sure that will change soon. We have ripped off the wood paneling on the fireplace wall, torn down most of the wallpaper in the house, have demolished a few cabinets and an archway in the kitchen and really managed to make a nice mess of the place. The house is being insulated today and after that we can finally start painting and getting the house finished or at least move in ready, we are trying out paint colors now and will be painting the entire interior and exterior of the house, the exterior will wait until it gets a little bit warmer outside. I am excited for it to be done, before I was just ready to close on the house and get started working on it and now I am just ready to move in and have it be home. The boys are adjusting fairly well to being at Mom and Dad's place. Gabe thinks it is great to have Grandpa and Grandma around all the time. He also loves the new place, he think the stairs are great! He is very excited to have his brown room, I don't know why he wants brown but he does, that is what he says every single time you ask him and when shown paint samples he picks brown too, funny kid. I will post pictures as time allows and we get them taken, we need to post a few of the mess we have going on now so when it is done it will really look impressive. We have a big roofing project on the house coming up the first week in April so if you know of anyone who really enjoys ripping up shingles and putting new sheeting and shingles down volunteers are more then welcome! Please pray the weather holds up those few days as our roof really needs to be replaced quickly before too much more moisture occurs. The pictures are of Gabe in our old house all empty, the boys at Grandma and Grandpa's getting ready to get PJ's on and thanks to Brady and Mya for making Gabe some play-dough, he loved it!

Thanks for the update! I'd been wondering how it was all going! Can't wait to see pics of the new house :) Atleast brown is "in" for a paint color. I am pretty tired of the orange paint that Ainsley picked out for her room:) Emily
