Well I have been promising for I don't know how long that I would put pictures of our basement on here. So here they are...We still have a ways to go but we have come so far!! We have done the majority of work "ourselves" and by that I mean Troy has done most of the work himself. Jon our brother-in-law has helped a ton by doing the drywall. It was so fun to have him down at our house. Will has helped a ton as well. We are so blessed to have such a helpful family.
In this picture Troy was trying sweep everything into a pile and when he turned around Sadie had decided to lay in it. She is so funny because she always has to be where you are even if it means laying in a pile of drywall and screws??? We love her but she is not the brightest bulb in tanning bed!!

As you can see by the pictures, we now have a hallway! We are in the process of finishing 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a walk-in-closet for the master downstairs, where Lorna will be staying. Troy has been so cute in putting tons of thought and effort into the closet for her. I will put a picture on when it is done. Lorna is quite the shopper, so Troy has built like 6 long shoe shelves in the closet so she will have enough space for all her shoes and all kinds of stuff. We are getting really excited for her to move in. Our ward loves her too and can't wait for her to get settled down with us.

Katie, your blog is adorable! It was so good to see you yesterday, even though it was brief. Obviously we weren't able to come over and visit (due to a Father's Day dinner with my hubby's fam) but we need to get together sometime. Maybe lunch or something. Next time I'm at my parent's I'll run over and get your number from John. :)

p.s. You are gorgeous!!!
