This New Years Eve, we spent doing some home improvement. Specifically, purging our house of 40 year old carpet. I'm not a big fan of carpet and 40 years is a good run. It had to go.
We had wanted to do it before we moved, but that didn't happen. We weren't sure about the condition of the floors underneath. Dad had told us before he died that there were hardwood floors under there that Grandpa had put in around the late 1940's.
We started in the hallway.
And in just over an hour, this is what we found!
And if you think I did a happy dance right then and there you would be correct! They are gorgeous and in perfect condition.
So we moved on to the living room.
This is our wild New Years Eve. Wild with perfect-hardwood-floor excitement!
On New Years Day Kiddo1 and I made some pie. Hubby bought me a french rolling pin for Christmas so my previous one went to Kiddo1. Now we don't have to share it and she can roll her own crust. She wanted to make a chocolate pie and she made it all herself. Four years old and making her own pie...if you think she was pretty excited, you would be correct. She called both her grandmas to tell them of her "very delicious pie".
And our New Years meal was Olive Garden Topper. That will probably be a tradition as well.
Along with home improvement and pie...
