Winter Projects

January was kicked off by a great friend having her first baby.  He was a big guy and is very loved already :)  
 Got the dresser/changing table finished for the nursery.
 Um...this is just a really cute nephew :)
 The garage got done as it's going to be for now.  The ceiling got put up and it's been awesome to park in with the cold mornings and snow.  This spring/summer we'll put walls up in the interior - for now we just have indoor tyvek type stuff up covering the insulation.  A work bench is also on the to-build list.

Finished outside - just need a few exterior lights put up by the large doors.
 It was too cold to paint so the exterior will get painted to match our house sometime when it warms up.
Karl's been super busy getting in double-stock of new baby pigs.  Lots of work involved and very thankful for family and friends that help give shots!

Since the garage got done, that means the nursery got started!  The upstairs had exterior walls and ceiling to the point where it was primed.  Karl built interior walls to turn 1 large room into 2 bedrooms with closets.  There is a total of 3 bedrooms upstairs now.  Kurt helped him finish the walls and put in insulation and my dad came and helped hang all the drywall.  It's all ready for mudding/taping now!  We're going to hire that done so hopefully in the next few weeks that will get completed.  After that, I'll move all our "stuff" from the nursery bedroom into one of these 2 new rooms and get started on painting and carpeting the nursery & hallway.  

 Very blessed to have married a handy-man :)
Our baby is 30 weeks and growing!  Still feeling great and doing an occasional grunt when I bend over to grab something and remember that I can't quite bend over like I used to :)  We've got a very busy (in a good way) month ahead - no long drawn out winter for us! :)
