Before And After

Once the pool is clean and full we will put up some better pictures, but I thought even this showed what a difference the tile made!

Sean and His Projects.....

Sean has been working on some interesting projects around the house the past few months. We were lucky enough to have a slab leak that left some large holes in our laundry room and kitchen. My dad convinced him that it was a good idea to have somebody do the kitchen repairs, so those are done, but Sean is still in the process of his other projects. He is redoing the laundry room and I think it is going to turn out really neat. He decided that once there were a bunch of holes in it, a little makeover wouldn't hurt.
The other project he has been working on is the pool. He is patching the plaster and coating the pool, which isn't interesting, but he also gave the pool a makeover. He chipped out the old tile and put in a new border in the pool. It was a crazy thing to do, but it looks great! Hopefully he will be done soon so we can hang out on the weekends instead of him working!
Other than the chaos he has going on in the house, things are pretty quiet lately.
My cousin Cristin and her husband and Reese are coming in town next week and we can't wait to see them. Hopefully the weather is nice when they are here!

We are working on Callie's bedroom, I mean Sean is working on her bedroom. I can take credit for the ladybug walls, but that's about it. He does all the work around here. I am loving the way it is turning out. He is in the process of putting up some chair molding now, but hasn't finished. My mom got her all of her bedding and accessories for her room and keeps buying her more! She just keeps on shopping, in Italy! Callie is going to have her own special things for her room from Italy, including some ladybugs from Gepetto's Work Shop! We are getting really excited. Sean has been really busy doing crazy things, like retiling the pool and working on the house and the baby room. I don't like for him to have too much free time.......I think I might owe him a really big present after all of this work.
My cousin Alison finds out what her second baby will be on February 6th! We can't wait. I hope we can make it there for the party.
My parents are moving back to the states at the end of March and we can't wait for them to be home. It is really different when your parents live a days worth of flights away. I am excited for them to be home and be able to be here for Callie to arrive. Oh, and they are lots of help, atleast my dad is with the dogs, cooking, and cleaning! We will always need him for that!
