Okay, it's 95% done...We still need a shower curtain, a toilet paper holder and a hand towel ring, but other than that it's done! Yay!!! They still have to redo the patchwork from the piping, but that will be quick and easy, so I'm not stressing about that one. Our bathroom looks awesome! I'm so glad it's over!

I am so thrilled by how much love there is between Vander and Oliven. Vander is contantly wanting to "play with" Oliven. If you ask Vander who his best friend is he says, "Oliven." It's super sweet. He loves his little brother so much. When Oliven cries in the car Vander says, "it's okay Oliven. Calm down." Although the other day I did find Vander sitting on Ollie's face because he wouldn't be quiet. He definitely earned that time out (as well as the one where he crossed the street on his own- the plumbers have been leaving the door open...not too good with a 2 year old. Granted our street is as safe as they come, and he saw his friend Nathaniel across the street, but seriously not okay!) My grandma somehow got the idea that I should punish Vander by sitting on his face so he knows how uncomforable that is (I didn't do it), so my brother, Freddie, called to tell me not to sit on my children!!!
On a totally different subject...Oliven is getting his braces this week on Friday. He was measured for them last Friday. His feet are looking really good. :)

Friday, June 25th the plumbers started the repipe.
Monday, June28th they found mold in the walls. We were told it wasn't safe to go home, so we stayed at Justin's parents' house until
Thurday evening, July 1st we were allowed back in our house.
Thursday night We came home to find maggots on the kitchen floor. Luckily they were only in the trash, not in our food. Yuck-o. Anyway, I had to paint the hall, Vander's closet and a wall in the office.
Saturday we went to look for tiles for the bathroom and a vanity. That night we went down to Robin's house for dinner.
Sunday We then went to Grammy and Pop's house to see Deb, Heather and Mitch, who were all visiting. Justin and I went to see Toy Story 3, which was excellent!
Monday, July 5th we went to a South Valley 2008 pool party BBQ, which was really fun.
Tuesday we stayed home waiting for the GE guy to fix our recalled washing machine part.
Today we went to library story time.
Tomorrow hopefully the guys will be back to work on the bathroom.

After cutting a hole in the wall behind the bathroom a wall full of black mold became apparent. In order to fix the problem we have to redo the whole bathroom. They have to get into the wall behind the shower and tub so that all needs to be replaced, then the flooring doesn't fit anymore so we need a new floor, then the vanity won't match, so now we have to redo everything. This project has exploded and so has the cost. Bye bye savings. :( We are lucky enough to have Larry and Theresa living so close by so we have had a place to stay for the past 4 days and 3 nights so at least the boys weren't exposed to toxic mold! We are going home tonight, and looking at all of the stuff to redo the bathroom with on Saturday.
