We finally took a family picture with all six of us. That's still weird. This is the totally unedited us - after church, in our empty front room, totally exhausted, somewhat rumpled, but definitely happy.

I took notes on our adventures in the hotel and in Estes Park, when we couldn't be in our house because of the floors, but it was just a little too eventful for me to manage posting about right now. (Just a little sampling: We woke up the first morning in the hotel to freezing rain/snow and a flat tire on our van. When I finally limped over to the tire place, I was informed that it would be a 5+ hour wait! Luckily, Brittany is awesome and chauffeured the two littlest and me around for the entire day - including when I needed to be at the school for a special event for Jon's class... I'm pretty excited for that girl to marry my brother!)
Our floors turned out to have some problems and have to have more work done. I am sooooo ready to get back to real life, but I definitely want to have things right when we're paying so much for them! The crew will be back tomorrow to do more work, and the countertops were measured yesterday, so I know we're nearing the end. Hopefully just a couple more weeks.
We have been working our tails off to get all the cabinets built and installed. Here's what the kitchen looks like today:

The electrician finally finished! (Got an un-recommendation if anybody needs one...) We spent the afternoon yesterday running around playing the "what's on this breaker?" game. Still got a few "mystery breakers" to figure out, but we'll get there.
And, because we're not good at sleeping, we slapped paint on the ceiling, kitchen, and front room, and installed our kitchen light fixtures.
Tomorrow, the much-delayed refinishing of the floors happens! We're in the home stretch!

So we've been stuck in our "nest" today. The kitchen/front room look fantastic, and Mark and I are in the process of painting now. No pictures of that because the electrician is a lame-o and STILL not done. (He says he'll be here first thing tomorrow morning. I'll believe it when I see it...)
Here's some pictures of the little guys though:
