We have a ceiling!

Ita and his guys just left, they got the ceiling put up with the first coat of plaster all before 1:00 o'clock today. Let me tell you, it looks great. Our kitchen finally has walls, floor, and ceiling. It's a real room! They'll be back tomorrow for the second coat of plaster, so it should be completely done by the weekend. Which means, we'll be able to paint the kitchen this weekend! Which, in turns means, I gotta hurry my butt up and decide on the shade of green for the walls, and the ceiling color. I'm also still up in the air about our flooring options. I think staining a checker pattern will be too difficult and time consuming because the stain will bleed under the tape. I'm thinking of painting it, but I've always had a hard time painting wood...like its a sin or something. I just want my kitchen to be a little fun, because as of now, it's very grown up. And I just don't think I'm ready for a grown up kitchen.


In other good news, the snow is melting! It's a balmy 47 degrees with nothing but sun right now, so Jayden and I plan to make the most of it by playing outside this afternoon. We played outside a little bit yesterday, but he bypassed the snow for the new puddles. I should have put him in rain boots instead of snow boots, but what can you do. When he first started puddle jumping, he was squealing with laughter. By the time I got the camera and back outside, he had started spinning for some reason. He usually only lasts two spins before he falls. And just so you know, we did end up taking a mud covered Jayden back into the house. Here's a video for your viewing pleasure:












Also, I have a bunch of random pictures that have been accumulating on my camera, and some are pretty darned cute.

Here is Heather with Jayden, and her other nephew Leo.

Jayden is forever trying to help us out with the construction work, even if it means plugging up holes with anything he can get his hands on.

This is from yesterday, he found another puddle. I'm going to miss our peeling paint a little bit once we get a fresh coat on it...I think it makes for a nice 'artsy' background. :)
