My mom and dad were up a month ago (yikes I'm slack). We were able to get lots of work done, well the boys were, mom and I only got two pictures hung :) Dad and his assistant, Keith, spent many hours in the basement pulling out OLD electric wiring and putting in new, fixing crazy wiring configuration, and freeing up some breakers on our three electrical panels :) my dad certainly had his work cut out for him and will never be without a project when visiting!
They surprised us with a new faucet as our housewarming gift and it's beautiful! Dad got that installed pretty quick. He also fixed my dishwasher. Did I miss anything Dad :) I did: the doorbells now work, our bathroom door no longer sticks, and we can shower without conking our head on the shower head now!
Mom and I played with the kids, cooked, cleaned up the boys messes, and shopped a little. I did get my table and chairs refinished and mom got the cushions covered. We also figured out some prettiness for our mantel using a cool old mirror that was left in the garage and finds from the tag sale.
I have yet to take pictures of the updates b/c the house is such a wreck these days! Here are some pics from our time with them and a couple others :)
