A blast from the past ...

OK .... so not to far back. Not even 2 years. But I was looking through my pictures and I found what is probably one of my favorite pics of Tyler and Kyle. He was so little.

It just makes you wonder how they go from being that small to getting so 'big' in such a short time!

New Floors!

We have lived in our house since December 2006. The moment we moved in, I have DREAMED of putting in new floors. The carpet wasn't horrible. I just always felt like it was 'dirty', that I could never get it clean enough, even with my Dyson (one of my most prized possessions). Well 3 years later we finally got the chance to replace the carpet!
We decided to go with laminate floors. Mostly because of the cost and plus we heard that they were pretty easy to put in. Don't be fooled ... that doesn't mean that Kyle and myself put these floors in without any help! I was able to get three guys from work to come over and put the floors in for me (they gave up a whole Sunday to do this and I appreciate it so much!).

They started around 8 am and ended up finishing around 5-ish. It was definitely a full day.

I talked about always thinking the carpet was dirty. Well that fear was confirmed when they started ripping up the carpet. I definitely could have done without seeing what was really in the carpet , i.e. the stains on the backside of the carpet. (In our defense ... we bought the house from someone and I like to think that they made those stains!)

After a lot of hard work the floors were finally done. Don't they look wonderful!!! I am really pleased with how well they go with the furniture.

*** Special thanks to Alex, Jason and Clayton for spending a whole day putting these floors in. They look wonderful!****
