Addition Update

We have officially moved into our new master bedroom. Which means I am way overdue for some updated pictures. However, we had a bit of a carpet debacle, and are waiting for our carpet to be replaced. That's right, our carpet that is only two weeks old needs replacing. Here is my summery of a long story... We were so excited to finally have carpet only to be called the day of installation saying there was a manufacturing defect, and they would need to re-order. Not okay. So we had them install the defective carpet while we wait for the new carpet to arrive. We are still waiting on our new carpet. Lowe's was great about the whole thing and offered to include furniture moving in our next instillation so we could actually use the room while we waited. They also stepped up to the plate when the carpet manufacturer refused to compensate us for the time lost and gave us a 10% refund.

But while we wait, I can tell you about how I let our kids draw on the floor; with makers. I thought it would be fun to have a sort of time capsule thing on the sub-floor of our bedroom, so I gave the kids markers (definitely the washable kind) and let them at it.

Grace was a little artist. I wrote out a verse (Joshua 24:15 - As for me and my house we will serve the LORD) and traced everyone's hand. Owen ate the markers.

I thought it would be awhile before we ever saw our artwork again, but it looks like it will be sometime this week.

On a completely unrelated note, I wanted to share a picture of Grace I snapped the same day as our artwork time capsule for no other reason then I think she looks absolutely beautiful in it.  She's my mini model.
