House pics

We are entering the final stretch! We locked in our interest rate yesterday and everything is ready to go. We finished tiling in all of th bathrooms (except the master...we had to order that tile), The doors are in, the back porch is done, the front porch is almost done, Brent and I are laying the wood laminate tomorrow and saturday, cabinets arrive monday....we're almost done!! It's hard to believe..
I still can't upload my pics, but I had Brent send me some via email. The first pic is of the rock fireplace going in. I'm sure this fellow would love to know his backside is on the internet for the world to see. The second one is our shower. All of our cabinetry is white and the tile that we chose for the master is a dark bamboo looking tile. So I chose to do white subway tiles in the shower. This pic is before it was grouted. I really love subway tile and love how it turned out! We will try to get more photos this weekend!
In other news, Malia started soccer and hates it. Oh we know.

quick update

I've have a backlog of posts, but with the new computer, I haven't figured out how to upload my pictures off the camera. We don't have the right cord and the memory card no longer fits into the computer. So...I've been putting off posting. One of these days i will post about Claire's 4th birthday and our trip to Oregon for spring break. But I really want to include pictures.
Things are continuing to go well with the house. Things are starting to get busy. I feel like i've been to home depot, lowe's and the tile place, a million times this past week. The outside of the house is all painted. The interior is being painted today. They are just painting it white and I will do all of the "color." In order to save some money, Brent and I are laying tile and laminate wood flooring. We are going to start the tiling this weekend. We are excited to see the final touches going in. (By the way..we picked the lighter granite.)
On another note, Malia started soccer for the first time. She has her first game tomorrow and is pretty scared. She's also sporting a 101 degree temperature today. So hopefully she doesn't miss her first game. Well, that's a quick update, hopefully i'll figure out this picture things pretty soon.
