Thursday morning we went shopping for new tile and carpet. We found the ones we wanted at Lowe's. Then we went over to Home Depot to see if they had a similar tile for less. They didn't, but the girls really enjoyed driving around in their shopping carts!
When Daniel went to consult our neighbor, Shane, for advice we discovered that he and Missy have the exact same tile in their kitchen! He loaned Daniel a bunch of his tools and showed him what kind of cleaner to get for the floors before laying the new tiles.
When we told people we were installing new carpet we got the same advice from everyone, "Hire a professional!" So we have a guy coming out next week to take measurements and give us an estimate. Hopefully within the next couple of weeks we'll get the carpets replaced. I'll post a picture when the work is done.
