A facelift

Some rooms in the new place are getting a facelift. We’ve begun with the mermaids’ rooms.

More of a top-lift really as the bulk of the labor is going into the ceiling treatment.

Popcorn be gone!

And yes, that is a teenage mermaid with an air-nailer on the ladder putting the final touches on her ceiling.

New Year 2016

Some memories we thought of tonight:
LaGrande: We moved to our new house in Auburn! (More to come on that.)
TheDaddy: Establishing the recumbent record riding across Washington.
TheMommy: seeing TheMermaids on stage together in Shrek Jr.
TheWeeOne: My Birthday!

We saw the Grand Canyon, the largest tree in the world, gained a teenager, lost some good neighbors, teamed up to become the first recumbent to finish TheHooDoo 500, visited and played with grandparents, made another movie, and continued learning how to be a functioning family.

Here’s to another great year, more adventures, a sprinkling of relaxation, old friends, and new ones too.
