So...way back on December 19th, we started installing new floors downstairs. We started after bedtime on a Friday night. It was great that Jeremy was in town to help us! We carefully removed the baseboards so we could reuse them. There were a ridiculous number of pieces. One more odd thing that the previous homeowner did.
It took awhile to get in the groove, and we worked until around 1am just so we could be finished with the entryway/living room area. Big Bro spent the night at the grandparents house, so Mommy and Daddy got up the next morning to work on the dining room. The new floors look so much better!
It took us four days to lay all the flooring and re-install the baseboards with two kids, but it was worth it. We were finished just in time to have Christmas Eve at our house!
Laying floors was a family affair. Lil Bro slept on Mommy's back while Big Bro helped measure!
And after over a year with the concrete floor, it was divine to have finished floors in the kitchen!
