Kody "the tool man" Marrs

We have been in our house over a month now and Kody has been working tirelessly to bring it into the 21st century! Everything is pretty outdated, but we're having fun making it our own. Kody is not a plumber, electrician, framer or carpenter, but you wouldn't know it to see how hard he works around here on his days off. I'm looking forward to having him "back" when all of this is over, but for now I certainly appreciate his willingness to work and I'll have to settle for this view....

Other than home improvement stuff things around here is business as usual. The kids all have colds now, but I guess I should be grateful that they made it through the move and the holidays healthy! We just had a nice weekend with my parents and we're looking forward to another visit in less than 2 weeks. We enjoy seeing all our cousins any chance we can get, and, when the weather permits, we LOVE taking advantage of all the walking trails and parks in our neighborhood. Maggie is becoming a pro on her bike which makes Kody and I proud.
I'll be sure and update the blog as projects finish (which is hopefully in the very near future!).

Everyone is on board with the kitchen demo!

How fun building your house together! Kody looks like a good man :) I can't believe you guys have been there for a month already! I'm also glad to have a #7 for a friend (I think I was a #5 if I remember right. :) xoxo

Nice demo outfit, Kody! GO ASU! What is with the black socks and white shoes though? :) Haha!
