The evasive poo

We finally have accomplished the last potty training hurdle. We have conquered the "poo" issue. Livi was doing great with staying dry but I believe she was having a mental block on the poo issue. A couple days ago she was caught in the act and was rushed to the bathroom and FINALLY had made an accomplishment! YEAH! Ever since then she has been dry and poo free. Just like that. Day and night. She is so proud of herself. Now if she could just get over having to tell everyone. I am sure all the people we passed in Menard's the other day were not as impressed as she was that she had "pooped in the toilet and now wants a treat". But she thought it was her duty to tell them all anyway. I am sure this too will pass. *sigh*

Living in a mess

Well after wanting to tackle this project for quiet a while I finally dove in and decided to redo my kitchen. Not MAJOR renovations. Just new paint, countertops and flooring. Well you know how those things go. One thing leads to another. Hee, hee.
Okay so Spring Break week I start by stripping wallpaper and I repaint the kitchen.

Then this last weekend we have to tear the old flooring out to make way for the new flooring.

Well it didn't go so well, and we ended up having to take all the base cabinets out too (to repair the toe kicks that fell apart). Also, the old flooring went underneath the old cabinets so they really needed to be taken out to remove the old flooring. NOT what we had planned on doing at all.

Also, the countertops came in....problem is the one that the sink goes into was damaged. That means we had to reorder it. Fine, BUT we had to take the old sink out cause we had to get that cabinet out. So now I will be without a kitchen sink for 1 1/2 weeks while we wait for the new coutnertop to come in. UGH!!!

On the bright side, my new flooring is being put in today. Soooo, tonight all the rest of my cabinets, fridge and stove should be put back in place. (God willing!)

My husband HATES my projects. I always say.."But honey, I am ONLY gonna do ______." He says it NEVER turns out to be an only anything.

By the way...this is what my dining room looks like right now.

More pictures to come. :)

Easter Morning

Morgan was our "Easter Bunny" and hid the eggs and treats for Livi. She had a blast looking for the eggs and really got into the fun. (Because of 30 degree weather and snow, we had an indoor egg hunt).

Doing the Easter Egg thing....

This is the second year Livi has gotten to do Easter Eggs but by far it is much more fun. Her enthusiasim is awesome and contagious. Everything she does is a whole new adventure and one to totally cherish. It almost makes you feel like a little kid again.
