Last Saturday Chad and Kaitlin came to help. Chad helped Jim fill in the holes in the floor for the new vent. It was really nice to get that job done! Kaitlin helped me pull out more staples from the floor.  Tired guys surveying their finished work.

 Kaitlin and her little bump.
 We hired a guy to do the taping, mudding and texturing on the ceilings. He did the work on three different days allowing it all to dry. He did a fantastic job! He lent us some equipment to use with our paint job this weekend (paint sprayer, a taping thing to help us tape the ceiling edges, etc. Today we bought the paint. Tonight the ceilings are completely done! Jim did the spraying and it was a lifesaver because we now have a very large room with a lot of ceiling. We started today about 1:30 and finished about 8:30 tonight, doing two different layers. We discovered that with a paint sprayer, you have to cover EVERYTHING! So we piled things up and covered it all with a light sheet of plastic.
 Finished ceiling. We used a flat white paint for the ceilings.
Wall that had the arches on it.
 Door (covered) into the enlarged pantry. The casings still need to be added to the door. Jim finished this project during the week.
 Our shrouded bed.

Ammon was asked to go to Preference by Hannah Tambasco. He was pretty excited to go tonight.
 Our living room with everything stacked on top of each other. Jim and I simply can't move the furniture by ourselves outside so it stayed in the room.
 A very happy sign today. Spring is coming.
 Hannah and Ammon being goofy.
 There was not a single good spot to take a decent picture. Obviously, it wasn't going to happen inside! A beautiful girl and a handsome young man. Hope they are having fun.
Tomorrow we start on the walls. I got a gray. I am worried it is way too dark but I wanted to stay away from a gray with a brownish or green base. This one is almost silver. Guess we'll have to live with it and love it. My bedroom will be painted blue. I haven't tried it on the wall yet, but I really liked the sample. I will probably do blue and white. Maybe a chair rail will be installed in a couple of years. Lots of time to do that. I think some family members are coming to help us paint tomorrow. We have to leave for SLC around 2:30 p.m. to meet Ammon, who is singing with his choir and another men's high school choir at the Assembly Hall Concert Series at 7:30 p.m. We need to cath him in between their rehearsal and the performance. They will also get to have dinner, hosted by the General YM Presidency and that should be a great treat for all of them. It's going to be a very busy day tomorrow.
