Aaron and Mandy's new beautiful baby girl

Grampa and Aunt Kristy got to meet lacey right away.

When I got to see her five days later. She changed so much already!

Moving the Stairs Back

There was no headroom going downstairs to the basement. Anyone 5'5" had to duck to make it down there!
No one said they could do it, but David and Philly cut a hole in the floor and moved the stairs backward.
Problem solved.
New Couch!
No more scraping the hardwood.

Hardwood Floors
before and after of what took weeks to refinish our dining room/entryway floor

Tah da! It won't look like this again until the basement is finished. We just don't have enough room for all the supplies and fixtures etc. that will go down there. I'm glad I got a picture!

Wish it still was this pretty! Some of the clear coat came up after all that hard work. (I blame me because I may have used too much stain...) I also scratched it when I moved the couch across...I had forgotten the bottom had exposed screws!! :( I guess it has character now.

This shows the foam that had to be scraped by hand, then the old yellow paint that had to be scraped and repeatedly stripped. After all that, the finishing could begin.
