For all those who think you can't...

Often people tell me that it is amazing what our little work crew can do to a home - and that they could 'never do that'. But, here are some quick pics of our current painting, demolition and redesign of a fireplace surround & pulling up linoleum to replace with tile projects.

It is easy enough that our children are doing most of the demolition... it really is THAT easy! (But, it must be done with safety in mind.) The kids love it as well - what child wouldn't love to tear a house apart?

Note to my cute husband: I included pics of all the kids helping and one of yours truly! (Since you haven't seen us in over 5 weeks!)



Cute story: While we were on vacation I awoke to some squabbling on Saturday morning and went out to the television area only to find my kids trying to defend why an HGTV television show was more interesting than Saturday morning cartoons! (We watched one HGTV show and then all the cousins enjoyed cartoons together.)

Oh remodeling is so fun. I know my kids have loved knocking out tile and walls and painting. It's one of the few times they don't complain about hard work, it's just fun for them. Good Luck!!!

That is amazing! They look like they are having so much fun. My kids would love to do that. It has inspired me. That is also a funny little story. I love HGTV also. Tell your kids great job!
Love,

Lots of work, but with family helping it makes it fun. I agree HGTV is better than cartoons.
