Thought this day would never come!

Well we finally finished the downstairs living room, which means that we have officically completed our major remodeling touches on the house. We still have a lot of little projects to do but it feels AMAZING to have all the big work done. I will try and get up some before and after pictures.
Since we did not have remodeling work this weekend we headed up to the mountains for a little snowshoe adventure.

We are so lucky that Jake is easygoing. He is pretty content riding along in the pack.
Speaking of the little guy, Jake had his 4 month b-day and checkup. The doctor said Jake was in the 40th percentile for legnth and in the 25th percentile for weight--so that is good news.

I am enjoying the last few months that I can lay Jake down and have him stay. Before long it will be chase time!

Jake's favorite position these days is standing. It is pretty impressive how sturdy he is on those legs.

Whew, that is awesome that you are done with all the big stuff. That room looks great, and I am glad you were able to get away from projects for the weekend. Jake is so cute, he and Grace are pretty similar in wanting to stand and sit whenever someone will help support them. I'd be sick of laying down after 4 months too I suppose:-)

Those ice sculptures are pretty impressive. I remember going through McCall once and seeing some that weren't completely melted. Congrats on the house, I 'm sure that is a huge relief. Jake is so big! I can't believe it. He is so cute.
