No, not the baby... he/she needs to stay in a little longer! But we have made some progress in our house, and I have Keith's and my families to thank for that!
Saturday was a crazy crazy day in our house. Except I think all I did was sit around most of the day. (Note to self: Do not try washing all the laundry, including all the baby clothes and blankets, in one day. That many trips up and down the stairs just doesn't work!)
The results of the day: The playroom is painted and has new carpet! The rest of the basement is well on it's way to being ready to paint, and my stairs are awaiting their lovely new carpet. So exciting! Keith wants to finish up a few more things, like the laminate at the bottom of the stairs, the carpet on the stairs, and a few cabinet doors in the playroom. Otherwise, it's ready for the toys. I'm really pumped about this.
In case you are wondering what color we decided to paint... we went with a super duper bright yellow, which I think makes the room sunny and cheerful! It's a playroom, after all.
And while the guys were all working on that, my wonderful Mother-in-law washed walls for me, washed dishes, and even baked a chocolate cake for me to take to potluck on Sunday :) It was wonderful. And Auntie Alyssa enjoyed keeping the kids busy, which was also a huge blessing.
