Patick is a Cutie Pie!

January 25th, 2006

Things have been pretty busy for us the past couple of months, and the past few weeks we haven’t had a lot happening to share on our blog. Here are just a couple of the pictures that we were able to take during the month of January.

Patrick discovers the fun of playing with a heavy but see-through pan lid.

Patrick plays with his play doh. Before you say that he’s too young to play with play doh, let me just say that he can’t open the containers. If he could, he’d probably eat it! He likes to carry around the tube that they came in, dump all the play doh out, and put each one back in. It keeps him occupied for hours!!! He has two sets: one at home, and one at Grandma’s. Right now this is his favorite toy!!!

An Old Irish Curse

“May those that love us love us; and those that don’t love us, may God turn their hearts; if He can’t turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles, so we’ll know them by their limping.”

Bathrooms have Granite!

January 12th, 2006

The granite for the downstairs bathroom and the kid’s bathroom arrived a couple of days ago. Here’s how it looks!

They need to finish the railing on the beadboard, and this bathroom is done!

They need to grout the tiles along this wall, and this bathroom will be done!

Here’s how the new granite looks!

Next project: Complete Mom and Dad’s bathroom. Now that there’s another working bathroom in the house, Mom and Dad’s is going to get a change!

Kitchen is Finished!!!

January 8th, 2006

This past week the kitchen was finally finished. The last touches were the backsplash and hooking up the ventilation fan, which is super quiet, due to the motor being located outside instead of in the kitchen! They also finished painting the entranceway. Here’s some more pictures that I took this week!

These are the celtic accent tiles that I helped my mom pick out for the new backsplash!
