Aubrie's New Room

So we finally finished a project at the new house. Aubrie's Big Girl room is all done and she is just about moved in. Just some clothes and closet items left to move. I would love to hear what the hockey player who used to live in the room thinks of the pink and green butterfly/flower theme in the room.

Finishing this room involved patching all the walls, priming, painting, adding a chair rail, and waxing the floor. We would still like to change the light fixture and doors but we are going to do the whole house at once for those projects.

check out pictures of the entire project!

Aubrie's New Friend

This past weekend, Aubrie finally met her (2nd)cousin Kate. They are almost the same age and hit it off immediately. Unfortunately Kate lives an ocean away in London so she will not be back for Aubrie's Birthday Party, much to Aubrie's dismay.

Lots of Stuff

Well it has been a little while since we have posted...but things should finally calm down for a little while.

Christmas was crazy! Aubrie now believes that Christmas is a month long holiday and Santa comes to every house that she visits! My parents came to visit on December 8-9 to celebrate with Aubrie. Since we were going to be away for Christmas, Santa came to our house on December 15. We had Christmas with our friends on December 16. She also got to open her box from Papa Z that weekend. Santa came to Grandma Z's house on December 24 and then finally he came again to the Zbrzezny family Christmas party on December 29! Entirely too much Christmas and too many toys.

Daryl and I spent Christmas on the Norwegian Star Cruise Ship in the Mexican Rivera. Very nice, although the weather could have been a bit warmer. We traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Villarta, Manzinillo & Mazatlan. The last two stops were added b/c we could not reach Acapulco like the original itinerary. Unfortunately, there was a valve problem and we did not leave LA until midnight, which was about 8 hours late. All in all a very nice break from the snow.

Pictures of Christmas and Mexico are now online.
