Between visiting our 2 families, we were gone for 8 days for Christmas. We got home Monday afternoon. Since then, we have been busy. I bought and put together two new sets of shelves for Alex's room and we've been orgainzing her things, including her new Christmas presents.

While in Oklahoma, I learned a new skill... how to tile a floor! My mother- and father-in-law are building a new house 'next door' (they live in the country) to my sister-in-law's. They are doing a lot of the work themselves. My sil was busy tiling the floor and asked if I wanted to help. She said it was like a giant craft... she knows how to get my interest! Anyway, I had a lot of fun, though I got very sore!

This is my in-laws master bathroom. Don't you love the tile? Anyway, I wish I would have been able to stick around and get more done, but I did enjoy helping with this room. We got about 3/4ths of it done.

Here's a vew of the back of their new house.

And a view from their front porch. They hope to move in by the end of February.

Looks like you had a nice time even if there was "projects" to do. I love projects.

Country living, ahhh what a life! I love that tile and congratulations on learning a new skill.

I've always wanted to try that, but it does look intimidating. I watch the shows on Home and Garden channel, but I've never gotten the nerve to try it. I have the perfect room, too; the room that I use as a little hair salon.

What a great job learning to do this! It's not the easiest pattern in the world either so what a way to learn!
