The girls are sick. Everyone is sick! They have a cold. Times two is not very much fun. REALLY runny noses, and cranky, clingy babies. Needless to say after 3 days of them clinging to me, and wiping snot all over me, I'm getting sick too. Here is my "go to" table during the day. Tylenol, saline, nose "plunger", thermometer, and LOTS of kleenex.
Ok, now for the fun part. We recently (or maybe a year ago...) discovered mold in our bathroom carpet. Who installs carpet in a bathroom anyway.... So we had been planning on tiling it for quite some time now. As we worked on this project, we also did little projects all throughout the house. I felt like it was time to update all of you who never get to see my house with some pictures. So I started at the front door. When you walk is this is what you see.... and yes we will make you sign the guestbook :) Here is the new master bath! So fresh and so clean.
A different view. Phillip installed the faucets all by himself! He is such a handyman :) Around the tub. This is my favorite part :)
We also tiled the floor in the guest bath. We got a new shower curtain and rug, and left everything else the same.
I just thought I would update you on a picture of the girl's room. It is pretty much the same. You can see that we had to take out half of their bumper pads because they were standing on top of them, and pulling the ties off. Still such a sweet room:) Here is our living room. We painted the fire place black (it used to be gold). Here is our bedroom. LOVE our bed:)
A wall in our room....
The guest bedroom.
New and improved basement! We got rid of our blue/white striped couches and cleared out a lot of clutter. Now it is even better, and such a fun place to watch movies. We also love it because the girls' can't hear us down here when they are sleeping...even with the loud movies.
In the back we've made a place for the girls to play. Thanks to all our family who have greatly contributed to the toys in this area!!
In Missouri we have basements, which also means more storage! Here is a picture of some of my attempt to organize storage.... Here is another side of our basement. This part is still in the works.... Here is where I spend most of my time. I've made drawers with things the girls can play with in here. They like to be wherever I am, and I'm almost always in here:)
Last but not least....my gold mini. Just to complete my jump into mommihood, and attempt to organize my life around twins on the move.
I actually have more pictures and updates to write about. I'll save that for another day soon. I hope you all enjoyed seeing a little glimpse into my life and feel a little closer too. (for all my Texas readers). We are off to the chiropractor and whole foods. We are going to beat the cold this week!
Love to you all, Shelly
