One more week!

Only one more week until Evan's first Birthday! We cannot believe it is already here. He is starting to take steps....we think he'll be walking by next weekend for his party.

Adam has been working nonstop on the basement. I love how the pole next to the stairs turned out!

The molding is up around the ceiling and the carpet is just about done.

We also ordered our TV and couch this weekend. We can't wait to use our new room!

Adam is finishing up the ceiling tonight. It looks great! We are very excited. Only carpet and molding left to do!


Evan loves the nice weather! Our next door neighbors were nice enough to hand down a Cozy Coupe to Evan. He thinks it is fine to ride in it and also push it around.


The basement is now painted. Josh and Laurel came in on Saturday to help Adam paint. Evan tried to help sitting on the rollers and pan.

Girl's Weekend

Last weekend I went to Gatlinburg, TN with six friends from college for our 3rd annual girl's weekend. We had a great time relaxing in the hot tub, shopping, and catching up. Even though the weather didn't work out for hiking, we still had a great time and can't wait to get together again.

View from our cabin:

The whole group....minus me.....

I brought Evan back a coonskin cap.....which worked out perfectly for crazy hat day at school on Monday!

We are down to the final weeks before Evan's Birthday, which is out goal for having the basement done. The drywall is all up:

Mudding and taping done.

Warm Weather

Warmer weather is here, which means we put away the winter hat and took out the baseball cap....hopefully the nice days stick around!

Playing Peek a Boo

The other night Evan and I played peek a boo with the table.


Evan is very excited that the ceiling for the basement has arrived! Today Adam is going to finish putting up the drywall and then hopefully get started on the ceiling! Evan thinks it is a great new toy sitting in our dining room.
