Playing with Power Tools - Our Basement Project

So I kind of messed up on the order of the pictures here but oh well. We're just about done getting rid of all the bricks used for the wood burning stove.
A little better view of that corner plus a good look at our old entertainment center.

Fernanda playing with the jackhammer.

Fernanda in action!

My turn!

Taking a break. This picture is actually a few weeks after the others in this post. I have some more on my work computer that will fill in the blanks. I just wanted to post these to give a little preview of our project that pretty much took us the whole month of October to complete. We finished 2 days before halloween! The door on the left side of the picture is to our basement bathroom and the door behind me goes to a bedroom that we use as the kid's playroom.

More Halloween!!

Pumpkin Carving!
Kyle decided to at least look at the camera and of course Keith couldn't smile twice in a row!


Our outdoor Halloween decor. Fernanda put it up on Halloween this year since we were so busy with the basement. We will redeem ourselves next year! Oh and Keith is being scary, ahhhhh!!

a better shot of the house.

Kyle at my parent's house

That would be me, the big, bad wolf; run for your life!

Watch out little red riding hood!

These are some Halloween pictures I had on my phone and that BreeAnn had taken at my parent's party. Next post will be the progress of our basement. I'm on a roll people!

Keith, Fernanda and I at my parent's house for the McDermott Halloween party. Kyle was not in the picture mood.

So these are just a few pictures from Halloween. There are more from the party at my parent's house but my mom has yet to give me those. I will post them as I get them. This year we had 3 Halloween parties in 7 days!!! It was wild and crazy but boy it was a lot of fun. This was my first Halloween without any school and it's amazing how much more enjoyable it is when you don't have to worry about homework and tests! I hope everyone had a great Halloween!

Family & Friends

Keith having fun at the Jazz game!! I must admit, it was the Clippers so I almost fell asleep too! :)
Kyle, Cristian and Keith raking some leaves. I'm checking on the sandbox hoping that no animals have left us any presents while the lid has been off.

That's us with Elder Krieger at his farewell testimony meeting.

The Monday (2 days) before Elder Krieger's farewell.

Fernanda giving Elder Krieger something to remember her by.

Keith and Kyle giving each other a hug. Such good brothers!!

Our friends Ricardo & Jenn to the left and Doug & Cheryl with their daughter Abby to the right. We were able to hang out a little before Doug & Cheryl had to go back to Wisconsin. Doug and I were lucky enough to baptize Ricardo while we were on our mission in Juiz de Fora, Brasil.

The picture is blury, but we had a good time!

Fernanda with Marcelo. He's making a face that I think is cute but Fernanda disagrees!

Kyle playing with Amanda's cell

Fernanda, Kyle and I getting ready to go to church.

Kyle being cute, resting his head on my shoulder.

The 3 amigos!! Cristian, Keith & Kyle

Just a few pictures from the past couple of months that I've been meaning to post for a while now. Enjoy!
