Bathroom update

We finished with painting tonight. We painted the ceiling, trim, doors and cabinets all this week and the walls tonight. We are putting all the new hardware and panels back on the cabinets tomorrow and hopefully the tile on the floor too.

So we will have a complete new bathroom....from ceiling to floor!!!!! ;)

Summer Jasmine is color on the walls. White trim and ceilings.
reason we are replacing tile...lil cracks and peeling
This is a piece of new tile, whitish with gray marble to match the countertops and tiles around bottom of walls.
pic before of counter top....where you can see marble look and wood cabinets.

Two new additions to pet family

We got the boys new hamsters today. Since their other one passed away.

This is Ace ...Tanner's with Sissy watching him. Ace is very hyper....climbing all over that cage!
This is Scribbles....Drew's hamster. He is alittle chunkier. :)
Both together....think they are brothers. they were both in same cage together at Pet Smart too. They were sleeping ontop each other at store and tonight in the same house. Be my luck one is a girl and we'll have a bunch lil hamsters soon! lol
We combined two houses together, but need to buy some more tubing so we can connect more tubes from cage to cage besides the one.

Day 2 of bathroom project

We got up early and washed down the glue of the walls......then went to Home Depot bout 9 this morning and got the exhaust fan / light, stucco, paint and supplies. I picked out the color Summer Jasmine for the paint. keep posted to see what color it is!

we got the stucco put on the walls... probably sand tomorrow night.

Scott cutting out the ceiling hole bigger for the exhaust fan. we put it in the same place as the other round light.
checkout the mess on the floor from the attic. everything was a black mess!

Heres the exhaust fan without the light cover on. We have to take it back down to paint so we didnt put cover on yet.

Day 1 on upstairs bathroom project

Before we started this afternoon, mauve with butterfly- flower border.
before by shower and doors
Here you can see what the bathroom looked like when we bought the house back in 1995. This is the first room I wallpapered! lol
close-up of UGLY blue flowers...what was that old lady thinking?
The mildew - mold ...the reason I started this project, putting an exhaust fan in too. This house never had one! Ive washed this mold off serveral times. :(
It was in corners and lil on ceiling. Hopefully exhaust fan will take care of this.
Scott scrapping off border by shower
Throwing down a big sheet
Another surprise....lower half wall is done in brick looking paster, just this one wall?? But the other walls have the tile up this they may all be like that?
look after we finished tearing off old paper
eeeewww nasty looking

Cleaning Out.....Like Beth & Christy

I have also been doing some rearranging and cleaning out.

Did boys toys, toy boxes, games, clothes and bedrooms before Christmas... and kitchen cupboards and countertops last weekend. That counter is one big catch all!

I also ordered new kitchen rugs too and got them today!

changed from blue and white to Country Red...

here are my lazy girls today while I was cleaning.
Suzie likes using my frog as a pillow... awwww she was snoring here.

I think the bathroom is my next project!! want to add an exhaust fan, then repaint and border. We've never had a fan and the corners are starting to mildew. uugh
Maybe one day I'll get another half bath downstairs too??????

Drews "12"

Drew turned 12 yesterday!! Happy Birthday Bub! :)

We let him pick where to go for supper.... guess where he chose? McDonalds. lol

Then we went to DQ for Blizzards. yummoooooo

We also went to Apple Bees last weekend for his big meal.

He got his present early.... a DSI. We might go swimming this weekend too?

Cookies in a Jar

Drew and his 6th grade classes made these cute Chocolate Chip Cookie Jars for a Christmas craft.
I just got the chance to make them.

Here you can see how they layered it.... all I had to add was a cup of butter, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Finished product..... they were YUMMY, but only made 2 dozen.
I could have eaten them all. lol ;)
