While I was sad to drop my mom off at the airport last night, I was thankful that we had two weeks to spend with her!

Last week she flew into Iowa and drove with me to Canada. My dad joined us there and we spent a week visiting family and friends.

My awesome parents!
The best part was being able to spend precious time with my sweet Grandma who is bravely fighting brain cancer.

Grandma Kember and me
For having just come through brain surgery and radiation treatments, she looks amazing, don't you think?

While we were away, Cameron was hard at work on the house. We wanted to finish mudding and sanding the addition without having Talmadge exposed to all the dust. 

Here's a little tour of the room he worked on while we were gone.
This type of mess is very normal around our place. Things are shuffled from one room to another while we make progress.

Just painting a coat of primer on these walls makes it look better already! Here is the opposite wall from the picture above.  The cabinet unit in the corner is going to be our little coffee bar someday.


As you can see, another door (to our future master bedroom) has been installed. Actually, a total of three (see the bathroom door HERE if you'd like) out of the nine doors we ordered are now in use!


The picture above is the closet I posted about HERE.  That's all I have for now, but stay tuned as we continue to work on these projects over the next few weeks.
