A Bit of Time and Work

Do you remember that last year, we painted our bedroom? Well, slowly we've been working to save up money for a floor. We found this wood floor on clearance. It has been sitting in our bedroom, waiting to be installed. A few weeks ago, Dave had some time, so he invited Mark over for a floor makeover. In less than 5 hours, they had it completed. Now I just have to get a rug to lay down.

Here is my room with the old teal green carpet. (Ignore those spots on the picture)

Here are the guys working hard!

Here is the floor all completed. Doesn't it look nice? I don't know why there are spots in my picture because the floor doesn't have them!

I'm Still Alive

I'm back from a wet weekend of camping! In spite of the rain, we still had fun as a family. We got to the campground on Thursday with beautiful weather. Thursday night, we got to carve our pumpkins. I saved the seeds to cook for when we got home. During the night, it started to rain and continued, until supper time. The kids got to go trick or treating around the campground sites without any rain! After trick or treating, we went back into the auditorium for apple bobbing, cookie and cupcake decorating and making caramel apples. Yummy!! Saturday, it rained on and off. There still was a polar dip in Lake Michigan for anybody daring (or stupid) enough to jump in. Today was a beautiful day. When we came out of the church service, the sun was brightly shining and we saw blue skies!
It was a good day to pack up in. Even with the rain, we made the best out of it. Now we have to clean the trailer out good to put into storage this week.

10 Things I Love

This was on Cheri's blog awhile back. You are supposed to list 10 things that you love with the letter designated to you. I told her not to give me a hard one so
Cheri assigned me letter "P". I didn't think "P" would be difficult but it took me a bit to come up with them. I wasn't quite as creative as Mari by putting a mosaic of my things together. I'm just writing the list. If any of you haven't done it and want to, let me know and I'll give you a letter.

1. Pets
2. Pink Lemonade
3. Princesses ( my daughters)
4. Patriotic Heroes
5. Parties
6. Pea Soup
7. Playing Games
8. Paper for Scrapbooks
9. Pictures
10. Presents
