this photo of Ella, lounging in the girls' recently re-floored (de-floored?) room. While I was in Kelowna last week, Tannis ripped the gross old carpet and underlay, did a bit of sanding of the bare plywood underneath and gave it a simple coat of purple paint. Viola -- a new floor at minimal cost that doesn't collect allergy gunk. It looks great, especially now that we've been getting some sunlight streaming in...and the girls truly adore the ultimate girliness of it.
Update: I wasn't sure if this newer photo of Ella reading in the same spot warranted its own post, so I thought I'd stick it here.
