Bathroom Remodel, Day One

But before we rush to the bathroom for some explosive pictures, here is a video of the Chipster. This one is destined to become a classic.

So Mom (K) had the same idea we did about redoing Chip's bathroom this week, and we figured that if everyone is thinking the same thing, we might as well get started. Here are a few "before" photos. Do you think this wallpaper just screams "four-year-old boy and his youngish parents" or does it just make you want to scream?

Now, here are the photos of work in progress. Gabriel had the great idea to go around the house finding things we could put the wallpaper in. He found garbage cans we didn't even know we had and took out the bags. He waited outside the bathroom and caught all of the pieces. He was very helpful.
So we have the walls cleaned off. The next step will be to spackle and paint the molding/maybe the ceiling.

Famille Heureuse/Familia Feliz

We just had a Skype call with Erica, Raul, and the nino, and we wanted to share a cute screen shot we took of the happy family. We wanted to reach right through the screen and pinch his cheeks! So cute.
