Trip threw a small birthday party for me on December 23rd. Having 20 guests come over was a great motivator for cleaning, organizing, decorating, and putting the final touches on our living room makeover. We hung pictures, cleaned out closets and drawers and Trip installed the quarter round on the edges of the floors. I took pictures because with two small kids and Christmas coming, I knew that the living room would become overrun with toys and life soon. Here is our house looking its best ever.
