Christmas 2008, Part 1

After leaving Midland, we went to Portales, made it there in time to enjoy huge crabcakes left over from Sunday Dinner. Everyone was surprised to see us; apparently they thought we'd left Houston that morning. LOL. Not the case. We had just enough time to go to Moms, unload and change our clothes for church.

On Monday, we finally got to Muleshoe to take measurements. We ripped up the bathroom carpet to see what the damage was...not as bad as we thought. We had Alex and picked up Trevor and headed to Clovis. First stop was Lowes. We found a dishwasher on sale, a door, some extra tools and what not. Then it was on to Walmart for paint and painting supplies. We finally made it back to Muleshoe around 4, TJ and Kallie were home and told us that my sister was at Therapy (little stinkers - she was at physical therapy, but they think its hilarious to call it therapy.) Bryan started in on the bathroom floor and I started on the painting. Jill soon got home and was able to roll while I cut in. My best friend from high school came over and we ate at Leals. Yummo. Then back to work, which wasn't as easy since we had full stomachs.

We had to call it a night and return the next day, without Landon, thanks to Grammy. Landon and Abby stayed with Emma and Grammy at the house. We finished up the painting, Bryan finished the floors, Kip had finished the dishwasher the night before, and then Jill, Kallie and I did the floor tiles in the bathrooms. Lots of work, but it looks so much better. Even if it did take the span of 3 months. There's more to do, but that was an improvement for the time being.
