When we got there Bryan cleaned the entire driveway, it was covered in wet leaves and that made is slippery, and it is sort of steep driveway. (minimal parking too) Him cleaning the leaves and small debris from the driveway made it look a lot better too.
Next, we took the three rug rats inside. They were excited so they were a little bit crazy. Which is good. I want them to be happy and excited to move!! Although I don't think that they totally understand what "moving" means. We showed them around and then took them upstairs where their bedrooms will be, and they were so happy!! We showed Trevor his room first. He liked it and thought it would work for him... and then we showed the girls' their room and they were happy and running around. Trevor did notice that Lauren & Brooke's room is bigger than his... Which it is a little bit bigger, but there will be two of them in there and so that is the only reason why they get the bigger bedroom. We told him that also, and he was okay with it. He is a pretty agreeable kid with things like that, when you give him an answer or reason so he can understand.
Then we showed them around the rest of the house... the living room, bathroom, kitchen and the PLAY ROOM!!! :) they LOVED everything!! The playroom will be a HUGE help b/c the bedrooms are a little bit smaller than what they have now... so to have all their toys out of their rooms and in the PLAY ROOM that will make a big difference. :) PLUS I love having a playroom for them... it is so much easier to clean one room full of toys every where than to clean two bedrooms with toys every where. :)
The kitchen seems to be in worse shape than we
The bathroom upstairs needs some major UPDATING and some
The kids' rooms are in good shape. They have new carpeting in them that we are going to steam clean and leave. We are going to clean all the walls and inside the closets. Then we will paint. :)
We are painting the kids rooms colors that we like but letting them pick... so a joint effort. Trevor LOVES green!! So his room is going to be a "spring green" a bright green color, NOT neon but not primary green and we are going to do a white and bright blue (same as green... NOT neon and not primary blue) stripe going around the room, like a border. :)
The girls will be giving
Our bedroom I have no idea for what color I want it. The living room, I am going to do a cream color... for now. There is paneling in the living room on the one wall, so we will leave that for now. Paneling isn't my
The downstairs bathroom will also be painted, but I have no idea what color yet, and also the front room and where the washer and dyer will go, I have no clue what colors for them yet. I guess I have to see how things look once the drop ceiling and all the paneling are out of there... then I can get a better idea.
So that is all for now. Bryan is over at the NEW house today working... I'm home, making birthday cakes for Lauren's and Brooke's birthday party today... and also I'm going to pack up a bunch of boxes!! yay!
I'm off to mix up another cake mix, throw it in the oven and then pack.
Have a great Saturday.
