Almost Done!

Our new house is almost complete, only a couple of weeks away!
The exterior brick and vinyl siding is done.
Kitchen cabinets, countertops, and appliances are in. Lighting is up throughout as well as plumbing hardware.

Garage door was installed.
Back porch still needs to be screened in and deck needs finishing touches.
Hardwood floors were installed today (no pictures yet,) and carpet should go in Wednesday.

Caroline has been busy as usual. She and Caitlin thought these closet shelves would be a good place to nap the other day.
She enjoyed helping Mrs. Swartz clean up. (Hope she doesn't lose interest in that!)
She thought she was something else being the "big" cousin pulling Brayden around in his wagon last weekend.
T-R-O-U-B-L-E! Need I say more?!

Coming along

Feb 19th - Trim work has started
March 6th - Most of the interior paint is complete, and exterior brick is going up.
This is the bonus room upstairs.

This is our bedroom.
Living room, kitchen and dining area are all this color.
The brick outside.
I can't wait to see it this weekend - interior paint is complete now, exterior brick is almost complete (couldn't beat the rain) and the cabinets and countertops are scheduled to be installed tomorrow. We're hoping everything will be complete a month from now!

My Princess

This is Princess Caroline, complete with her high heels that unfortunately you can't see in this picture.
Caroline's cousins came down for a visit Saturday. After playing hard for a while they snuggled up for some down time to watch a little TV in my bed.

After only a week of truck shopping Travis got his new used truck to replace the wrecked one. This one is a year newer than what he had, with less miles on it, and a lot of features that his old one did not have....he's happy.
And Caroline likes driving Daddy's new truck too.
Caroline graduated to her "big girl" bed a few weeks ago also. She tried to learn how to peddle her bicycle the same day, but I told her she's not allowed to grow up that much in one weekend. She's about mastered the peddling now, who knows what will be next?
