The results so far

Our new downstairs back entryway

Back entryway. This will be so much easier to clean than the carpet.

Entryway from the garage. Still need to fix the walls and get baseboards but looking better already.

Not to bad for my first install.

Our new rug upstairs. Fits so much better than the previous one. Now to get everything else cleaned up and organized.
We're still waiting on new carpet in the basement and I need to get the wall painted and baseboards installed but at least it's coming together. Hazy sure made a mess but it's nice getting some of those things done and checked off the home improvement to-do list. I'll post more pics when we get more done, whenever that may be.

Hazel and the paint

Don't be fooled by that little can. It was a quart size that did this.

It was everywhere

The puddle

At least it all came up easily.

Ready for new flooring
This is what happens when you mix Hazel, stairs and a can of wood stain. It's a good thing we've been talking about redoing that entryway anyway and the basement needed new carpet too. Hazel just kind of sped things up a bit. Maybe next time I'll have her carry a can of paint into my master bathroom and see what comes of that. :)

Can you tell them apart?

Here are some pictures of the kids when they were all about the same age. I wanted to put something together to see if they looked alike and I think it's a safe bet to say that they do. Hazel is easy to spot because of the pink but Gideon and Simon can be a little tricky. These kids are amazing and, even though they may look alike, have very different personalities. Gideon is very strong-willed, Hazey is carefree and we're still waiting to see with Simon.
