The chair rail is finally done…I finished painting yesterday with some help.  Thankfully no little ones were too interested in this project.   Here is a before…. and then the after….not a huge difference.

Life gets in the way…in a good way.  We have spent most of this week together…in pjs, playing with new toys and enjoying the pleasant December weather.  We did not travel this holiday which was really awesome.  I do not think ANYTHING beats the joy in faces on Christmas morning.
