Home Remodeling

We recently had some work done to our downstairs bathroom. Turns out there was a bad gasket or bad seal in the tub in the upstairs bathroom that was allowing water to come down behind the drain stopper switch. Actually, I have no idea what the "technical name for it is, but it doesn't matter. The bottom line is, we had all sorts of nice water damage downstairs. The ceiling, and the drywall on both sides of the shower showed signs of water "yuckiness."

We hired a guy to come and fix it. He replaced the ceiling, replastered and textured it and replaced the drywall. I did the sanding, priming,
and painting. Here are some pictures that show the process. I'm pretty excited to have it done--especially since I could never have done it myself--at least not without someone who really knew what they were doing, plus I just simply haven't had the time recently.

Love the Snow

Almost since we got back from our Thanksgiving trip to Iowa, we have had snow on the ground. Lindsey in particular can't get enough of it. Reece enjoys it too and every time we walk outside along a parking lot side walk, for example, the kids HAVE to trudge through the snow in the grass off the sidewalk. I guess they should enjoy it while they can!
