Day 5

Couldn't decide which "pappy" he wanted so he just used both!

New Year's Resolutions 2013

I started this blog as a way to scrapbook without all the glue and scissors and craftiness. I need to do a better job or 30 years from now I will be mad at myself for not committing. So even though I am 5 days too late I am going to do the 365 project. A photo a day. So here are the first 4........ (way out of order)

 On the 4th day Candace surprised me with birthday gifts.....6 months early. Some paperwork got mixed up at corporate. So I got some really sweet and thoughtful gifts from the best co-workers! 

Day 3 the new dishwasher installation began....not sure when it will be completed though. 

New Year's Eve and Ra didn't even make it until 10! I'm counting this as Day 1. 

Day 3 I spent in Knox with Cassie, Tate and Mom. Little guy had his 18mth checkup. Being that really awesome Aunt that I am I tagged along. Cassie takes him to the same Pediatrician that we went to so it was nice to see him again. Tate had to get two shots....I nearly passed out. Yep still after all these years I am not ok seeing a needle.

Dear Santa!

Someone knows what they want from Santa! 

Out with the old....in with the new!

From day one I knew I wanted to replace the flooring in this house. I like the kitchen tiles and the tiles in both bathrooms are fine. I don't love them, but for the time being I can live with them. The other rooms are a different story. One of the bedrooms that the previous owners used as a nursery has extra light laminate flooring. The color stands out terrible! The other two bedrooms have cat urine soaked/stained carpet. I'm hoping to put this house back on the market by Christmas 2013. What can I say I like a challenge! Ha! 

So because my parents are the best they bought me all new flooring for Christmas. Huge blessing!!!! Did I mention they are the best? 

 Raleigh overseeing the project. She isn't sure why the floor feels different she just knows that it does, and she doesn't care for it. Ha! 

This is the original floor in the living room and hall. Thankfully it came up really easy and wasn't too much of a mess. Hopefully the house will have new flooring throughout by Christmas.
