. . . and freshly painted with their first coat of paint. The ceiling is also completely done. It is looking so nice I can hardly believe it. Just a little note on wall paper . . . NEVER put it in your house because it will go out of style and then you will have to remove it and it is HELL! Just use paint people!!!

Left - wall paper gone, but glue still on the wall
Right - Wall paper down and glue washed off.
With lots of help from Tonya and LOTS of wallpaper stripper, all the wallpaper in the living room is down. Tim and I were able to sponge down one wall last night before "hitting the wall" from a long day of work and I am so excited now to get the rest of the walls sponged down!
In other GREAT news, we have our heating and air figured out and they will be installing it the week of April 5th and it's going to be almost half the price of the estimate we received from someone last week and yet done by someone who we know does great work! So hopefully we can be moved out (or at least mostly moved out) before Kent gets here to help us fix our current house.

So, it looks like we'll being staying close to home for a few days. Probably a good thing so that I stay put and get some things done here!

Kylan wanted me to take a picture of him with his new kitchen and easle that he got for his birthday. These two things have kept the kids very happy lately!

I just realized that I haven't taken any pictures of everything with the sheetrock up, so I will be doing that in the next couple days because it is looking really nice. Tim and I have also painted the master bedroom in the last few days, I just have to cut in the second coat and it will be done except the ceiling. The sheetrockers told us yesterday that everything should be ready for texturing the middle of this next week. This is a little later than they thought originally, but it has taken more layers of mud than they thought it would to blend things in where we took the wall out.
Here are more pictures of the new bathroom that were requested. Hopefully you can get a better idea of where this is. I didn't take any of the office because nothing has been done in there because we still haven't decided on who we are going with for the heating and air.

I saw this on a couple other blogs today, and decided to participate. This is my house, on an everyday basis with little editing. It's taken me a few years to accept this condition of my house, before kids I prided myself on keeping my house (except my bedroom, always been a challenge for me) in ready to be seen condition. However pregnancy, kids, and life have made that impossible, plus I am in this house limbo where I have little motivation to clean because we will be moving soon and it will be much easier to clean once it is empty. So, here it is in all it's glory:
My overcrowded dining room. Our table is never completely clean unless we are having a family dinner. My printer and whatever I don't know what to do with is on it or on one of the chairs. Also, Mya's mac & cheese mess from last night is still on the floor and on the high chair.
My kitchen (if you ignore the breakfast nook/catch all in the back) is actually pretty clean today because I haven't done any cooking yet. In the back you can see that Tim's camping stuff from last weekend still hasn't been cleaned up, and probably won't be until he camps again (or we move).
So, there it is. Hopefully I made you feel better about your own house, and if you are brave take the challenge and share!
Baby is about 5 1/2 inches long and as many ounces and is beginning a growth spurt (great)! This is about how I looked with Mya at 20 weeks, but I was carrying so low with her and I think this one is higher - maybe a boy? Who knows?!
I feel the baby everyday now and I have braxton-hicks everyday also, especially if I sit for a long period of time. Also, for those first timers out there, more than 4 an hour doesn't mean you are in early labor like some of the books say, just a little FYI. I just read that on this baby and started laughing.

The house is moving right along. The sheet rockers are there today and will be done by Tuesday or Wednesday. Once they are done we will be painting everything and then hopefully have the carpet layed the next week and then we start moving. I am so excited, unless I think too much about what moving implies, then I am overwhelmed, so I try not to dwell on that part! Here are a few pictures I snapped yesterday afternoon:
Kylan's birthday is on Monday and he wanted to have his party at his new house, but unfortunately until the sheet rockers are done we don't have running water or full electricity (they can't finish the plumbing until the other is done), but we will be moved in before too long!

There was another point to this post before I started rambling . . . I just want to say congrats to Abe & Lindsey on the arrival of Crew a little over a week ago and Afton & Bryan on the arrival of Brooke a week ago also!
AND . . . good luck to: Rayanne, Kari & Corinne in the next couple weeks. I can't wait to see your little ones and I really can't wait to find out if I am getting a new niece or nephew!
And one more big congrats to Karin & Bert on announcing that they are expecting! I'm so excited that we are both having our #3's within a month of each other!

The fireplace finally gone - it took a jack hammer to get it all out (Thanks Sam, you saved us!)
