Saw Dust Out the Ears!

Chances are I will be cleaning up saw dust for the rest of my life....but our hardwood floors are finally finished! The furniture back in place...not so much! This is the only room that is mostly finished so that I could grab a quick pic. What a process this has been and I am so ready for my house to be back in order! Nate is also tiling both bathrooms upstairs and refinishing the cupboards...so it's pretty much like a war zone around here. We are trying to get everything finished and organized by the time the nanny comes May 20Th... It is helpful to have a deadline...works well for us!

Sista's in the Sun! (ish)

Finally getting back into the swing of things after being on vacation! It's been in the high 60's to low 70's lately so we are starting to bust out our summer clothes whenever possible! Park days are the best!!!
We are getting new hardwood floors in the entire downstairs so it been a zoo around here! All of the furniture has to be in the garage...it's noisy and there are workers coming in and out constantly...hoping to be finished by Friday!!!
Soo...Big News....I think we found our live in nanny!!!! I just met her and had an interview with her yesterday and have been emailing back and forth for a few days now. She is 19 and adorable! (like that has anything to do with it) She is very sweet and has lots of experience babysitting. She is a freshman in college and goes to school in Denver. Her family lives in Montana so she is just here for school. I'm calling her references today and doing a background check. Then she will be doing a few weeks of regular babysitting for us just to make sure she knows what she is getting herself into ;) I have such a good feeling!!!! If all goes well she will be moving in May 20th and will be trading 45-50 hours babysitting for free rent and utilities! I will then be able to work and not spend any money on childcare! Sounds like a great plan to me!!!!!!!!

Hailey is doing great! She has been talking about August coming up..."my birthday month!"
Ashtyn is also doing well...still not talking very much...but we are convinced it's because Hailey does all the talking for her!!! She says a few words like mama, dada, hi, yeah, good. She does sign for everything...so trying to teach her to use the words along with signing! She truly is such a happy kid and LOVES to do pretty much anything outside!!

We CANNOT wait for the pool to open...we will be there EVERYDAY!!!!
