Mini Post Monday

  • Did you know that Amazon is giving away free Christmas music this month? Check here every day for a new song to download. However, beware of Dec. 4! Explicit lyrics in Christmas music is jut not my style...
  • I found Andrew in the hamper this morning with two pairs of Jerry's underwear hanging around his neck and my pj pants on his head. Yeah, it's a good thing Andrew didn't come with a twin. There just isn't enough trouble in our house for two of him.
  • Andrew with his two current favorite things: toothbrush and singing snowman.
  • The bathroom remodel is going along swimmingly. The old tub/shower enclosure is cut away, a new tub is installed, the tile is demolished, the toilet is out, the sink/counter top is out, all the cabinet doors removed (to be painted), and the one wall that is going to be tiled has been removed and the sheetrock replaced with cement board for tiling! Guess how much of that work I personally have done? :)
  • This is what it looks like behind/under a bathtub/shower enclosure!
  • We found a place that lets you design your own tile mixture! We fell in love with glass tile sheets, but all the ones we found in stores are either rather plain or rather expensive. Jerry found Modwalls and we started playing around with color. Here is the link for the custom blend generator. It is so much fun to play with!  Below is the custom blend of colors we are going to order for our bathroom.  This tile will go on one wall as an accent.
  • Aaron has become an avid reader! We are heading out to the library in a few minutes and he will check out 15 or so chapter books. Those will all be read by next Monday's trip to the library! A boy after my own heart!
  • Andrew is starting to show signs of more serious food allergy. :( He is red around the mouth after meals quite often, his whole body is covered with spots of eczema, his diapers are not so nice, and he is rather fussy. Sigh. I guess I need to limit what he consumes now, too. I don't think we can get any actual testing done until his is two, but I plan to ask the allergist when we are there next. 
  • Sorry about the lack of pictures. I haven't downloaded any all week...maybe I'll get to it later today and add them in!

WOW!!! You're making me want to redo our bathrooms upstairs. I should take a picture of the paint in the one bathroom. I have no idea why any sane, rational person would paint their walls that color. I really like your tile blend and thanks for the link. Now I'm not going to get anything else done today. But it's exactly what I was looking for!!

I'm so sorry about Andrew's allergies. I know you must be exhausted.

Woo-Hoo! I actually added pictures!

I can't believe how big Andrew is getting! Shane will be taking the kids to see his parents next Summer and everyone keeps mentioning how Ana will be walking by then. It's so hard to imagine that. But, I know the time will go by way too fast.

I love the story about Andrew in the hamper! Too cute!

I'm so sorry about the allergy thing too!

I'm looking forward to seeing how your remodel goes. I can't wait until we own a house again. I'll have to live vicariously through you until then.
