Our Work In Progress

Well, it's about time to show off all the hard work that has taken place this fall! We have to thank Chris' dad for coming out and helping with several projects; it would have taken us so much longer to be as settled as we are if we had done it all on the Saturdays when Chris didn't have class this fall! We're pretty excited about the wood floors Chris refinished, our new bedroom ceiling and crown molding, and our wine rack.

So, enjoy some snapshots of our dining room, living room, and 'master bedroom'!

One Room Completed!

If you've been waiting on pins and needles to see what's been going on in our house - this is for you! We have one room totally completed and ready to be shown off (minus the ugly red carpet)! The boys are enjoying their new room and bunk beds; Garrett only fell out once and then Chris made a rail...
Enjoy, and stay tuned. Dad VanSlooten comes next week so we should have some more rooms completed!

Since returning to Rehoboth a week ago Chris has been hard at work on the new house. We pulled up the carpet last Thursday, and then Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were spent sanding and polyurethaning the beautiful hardwood floor in our bedroom, the living room and the dining room. It has turned out beautifully! We still have to do the quarter round and as you can see there is painting to be done on the trim and a few wall patches, but it's fun to see some progress!

We spent our last week in Michigan at Spider Lake with Nikki's family. While the weather was cool, we had a great time and were blessed to be able to relax and reconnect before heading home. It was a great way to end our summer! Enjoy the pictures and come back later this week for pictures of our house and all the remodling Chris is doing!

On our way home we stopped off in Kansas City to spend time with Christy, Ryan and Noah. It was a great time of reconnecting and experiencing their new home!
We headed to the Squirt Park to tire the boys out before we got in the car to drive through the night. It was a great time!
