Over the weekend reno update

Friday and Saturday were busy reno days here too.

Most of what was done was drywalling and wall/ceiling texture.

The sitting room is going to be painted as well, I think I mentioned that. We took off the chair rail (if you remember, it was dark green below) and the top was white knockdown. That's a kind of texture- which I didn't know the name of till just recently! The bottom of the wall was done in the same texture, and once it was dry, you couldn't tell the difference.

The knockdown- I don't know if you can see it well enough- if you click on the photo, it will display larger.

Not quite dry, but the green is gone and the whole wall is textured.

The drywall is all done and the texture on the kitchen walls and ceiling too.

The light beam is done and will be wired like a track- without the track.

So, lots of work, but not lots to see. And LOTS of mess, holy cow. I feel like we are eating dust! When people warned me about it, I had no idea... it gets everywhere!!! lol

My biggest challenge has been my lack of ability to get into the fridge at will. I need to plan better...

We are very excited- today the cabinets are being put in. They are beautiful! I will be back later today or tomorrow morning with another post to catch you up!

Western Welcome Week 2010

The Western Welcome Week parade marks the end of the summer for the kids and the beginning of the official marching season. If you follow my blog, you know that this is Heidi's third year with the Columbine Rebels Marching Band- and Chloe will likely follow in her footsteps next year. I guess that means I will be sticking around with the band too... lol

A view of Littleton downtown, looking west.

The Columbine High School Rebels Marching Band!

That's my girl right in the middle of the mellophone section! (second girl from the left of the photo)

And again, going right by me. I'm not proud or anything. lol

These kids are so talented and dedicated- they work SO hard! They practice two nights a week for 2.5 hours each time, and all day every Saturday- in addition to having practice/class every school day. 

It was blazing hot out there and they must have been melting. But you would never have known it- they looked and sounded fantastic!

Looks like the Rebels are off to a great start!
