Dancing baby

Leroy likes to dance to music.  Sometimes he sings along too.

More flooring

We decided to take the leftover flooring and put it in our basement. We just had a cut carpet edge and poured cement flooring. Now, we have this beauty:

We ran out before we could finish. But that's okay because our stairs really need some help. 

So I figure that once the stairs get finished (by a professional because the drywall is also wonky and the stairs are built over the carpet and some other weird things) we may order more flooring and finish the whole thing! But for now it is so awesome. The picture of our new flooring makes me so happy. 

Also, I had the "opportunity" to clean our carpet yesterday. I left out a blue sharpie. Which Peter (2 years old) found and colored his hands and carpet with. You can't see it easily, but if you look just in front of Peter you can see scribbles from the fireplace to the white car. 

Rubbing alcohol just made the blue spread into splotches. Hairspray was somewhat effective, but I didn't want to scrub that hard for that long, so I borrowed Mom and Dad Gould's carpet cleaner. 

I finished off with a spot cleaner spray that I went over again with the cleaner machine. And my results? See for yourself:

New flooring

Our neighbors are redoing the flooring in their house and they gave me their old flooring. We have had linoleum in our garage to keep it warmer on our feet in front of the washing machine and food storage. I have been wanting to redo the flooring in the garage because it was starting to look shabby. Well, I used their flooring to make it awesome!

I am waiting for Hollis to get home from work so he can use a saw to cut the boards to the length I need to finish it.

This week at our house

We lowered Leroy's crib and now it is the perfect height for standing. Which he loves.

Also, it warmed up to a balmy 54 degrees Fahrenheit, which is warm enough to play in water outside (according to my nephews). 

We also went to the doctor for a well baby visit! And Leroy did not have any ear infections! Or need any shots! Hooray! He did like playing with the toys there though. 

We also got Leroy eating food again. He likes crunchy things and doesn't like soft things. 

Yum! Apples and Cheerios!

We also had a ward pinewood derby. Hollis and I made cars for the event and Leroy got to use one that Hollis made when he was in Cub Scouts. Jason and Sam made one too. Benji didn't want to be left out, so he brought his Lego Francesco car. He turned his in and it got a number too!

We are numbers 6-10. Michelle = #6. Leroy = #7. Hollis = #8. Jason = #9. Benji = #10. 

Jason took second place overall. 

And in closing, this is Leroy playing for the first time at the giant step in his room.
