Today Was Not Our Average Monday...

*We shipped the kiddos off to Gramma Jo's for the day.
*Spent WAY TOO MUCH at Home Depot.
*Painted & painted & painted the basement.
*Both John & I had dentist appointments.
*Went to Wesley's [a kid in our youth group] basketball game.
Called it a day...

**A year ago we came home to a basement filled with water. We are finally at the painting stage!!! YAY!!! Although there's still a lot to do till we can crash & enjoy, we are getting SO close (considering its been a whole year long without a basement!). And that means that ANYONE who wants to stop by at the Neiner B&B...just give us a holler!!!

Here's a sneak peak at some of the colors we have picked for our basement. The rest to be revealed in due time.

so many to choose from. don't worry...these are not all going in one room!

my ever-faithful painting pants were able to see the light of day.

Was this really a good idea??? [ha.ha. actually we LOVE the orange!!]

Fun Family Times For Sure:

We are doing our silent scream. Of course...the silent part didn't last too long.

What you get when your 3+ year old asks you to take a picture of his hand.

YAY for the painting stage!!! That's so exciting!!!! Those are some interesting colors but they look great together and I cannot wait to see the finished product on your walls!!! Bright colors can be scary at first, but usually end up looking great when you have furniture next to them and things on the walls! Looks like you are getting a lot done! Keep up the good work!!!

Steph: Yeah! That's John! It was dry though, for sure. :) It was just a crazy day. He finished up while I ran and got the kids; grabbed a bite to eat and out the door for the game.
