The project



Well, when I posted earlier this week about being very busy this week I left out one major reason why we were so busy. We were also building Arianna her own room. We decided to build a wall in the basement so she could have her own space.
I'm so proud of Mark- he did an awesome job. It's not quite done yet- we have to finish the trim, but it's done enough that she can use it. I'm so happy with how it turned out and more importantly- she's happy too. Bedtimes have been pure bliss that last few days (I know that it's still early.) Halle has adjusted well too- today she was vacuuming and cleaning up her own room. I think now that they each have their own space it'll really help them- and therefore me!!!
Don't look closely at the first picture- We have to finish the other side of the wall but I'm not feeling too ambitious right now about stripping more wallpaper. That might have to wait for a little while.
What do you think- pretty nice huh?!!!!

Keep this little secret away from Kaylyn because she shares a room with Libby and doesn't like it. Smiles!

My Mark isn't quite as handy as your Mark is apparently and he also would not be willing to give up his "trophy" room which is what out basement pretty much is other than Zack's bedroom.

Very nice!! It's nice to have a basement to be able to grow into. We will have one in our new home, and hope to finish it off one day as our family grows:)
