this and that

Wanted  to share this great fall craft idea – but you could use the same idea for any season/holiday!Fabric_Ornaments3 fall

We had an impromptu visit from my sister-in-law Lisa yesterday and it was fun showing her our new house and watching the enjoy playing together!!

We tried to pick some persimmons for Lisa’s mom – but then decided that they were not the ones she likes to eat.  But here are the kids trying to pick some..

Here is Floyd (Lisa’s dog) playing in the back with our girls (Lucy & Polly)

And there is always a project under way here at our new abode..

the latest is the floor – Robert was DONE smelling the old carpet that has “who-knows-what” living in it!  So he started pulling it up..

no more carpet

And started putting down some new wood!!

Meanwhile, we found a treasure of sorts under the carpet in the boys room – the original wood floor!!  This is a treasure because we are going to restore it and have that as our flooring in the hall and boys room.  Our little girl has begged to keep her carpet so her floor is “soft” so for now, the carpet will stay, but eventually we will restore her floor to the original wood too!  The sorts is because it will take a lot of work to get this looking good, but it will be worth it!

Here Katie is enjoying our temporary remodeling with the piano right behind the couch – she likes to walk on the keys and evidently sleep on the cover too!
