The Flood of 2014

So this winter has been pretty cold and filled with snow. School has been cancelled several days and not just for snow but for below zero days. So Friday Clint texted me before I had left school and said to call him asap. I called him and he said a pipe busted and was flooding the house. What?! Great.

Here are a few pictures from Friday night when I first got home.

Behind door #1...

a busted pipe! The cold water pipe on the left is what cracked.

kitchen ceiling...wet spots but not too bad

laundry room dripping with water
garage ceiling...water was dripping down the door frame and actually frozen

our freshly painted laundry room

a steady stream in the basement ceiling


I picked up the cushion and water just gushed out.

another stream just running down the front of the tv

that might need fixed

well I guess it is called a pool table...hahaha

I think the ceiling is a little wet.

good thing we have pool floaties in here

a new waterfall feature we have now
Here's some pictures from today after Clint and the water restoration people did some demo.

They cut out the drywall behind our cabinets t make sure they weren't wet.

They peeled up the carpet and ripped out the wet padding. 

The kitchen floor was taken out.

They took out the toe kick below most of the cabinets.

They also propped up the island to dry underneath.

Almost everything was taken out of the laundry room because it is directly below the cracked pipe.

Hello new pocket door.

Half the ceiling was taken out from the basement.

The carpet and padding are now dry.

Might need some patchwork.

Our fan club!

They took the fans out of the upstairs closet and bathroom today along with all the fans from the kitchen and laundry room. There is one fan and dehumidifier in the family room still along with several fans still in the basement. Clint also removed the drywall from the second smaller bulkhead tonight. Hopefully the last of the fans will be taken out in a day or two so we can get started on putting everything back together!

I have another day home today due to the cold so Parker and I are having fun playing!! Since we had a busted pipe on Friday we have had almost 30 fans running in our house which makes it a little warm...which is why Parker isn't wearing any pants ;) Don't worry though! I'm wearing pants. 

Likes: playing with cords and paper, fake coughing, whenever Lucy comes into sight, bananas, furniture cruising, giving kisses and patting me on the back when he hugs me ;)

Dislikes: sleeping in his room when it gets cold 

What's New in the Last Week: standing without holding onto anything, taking & handing things to us, putting things in a box or bucket, finding a specific toy that I hid 

Last week he had his 9 month checkup and he weighed 19.9 pounds and is 28.5 inches long. He still wears mostly 6-9 month clothes because the 9-12 ones are too baggy but there are a few outfits that fit him.

let's read!

love his napping face

crawling under the table

napping amongst the chaos

He may be asleep but he has one eye on you!

Parker & his pals

slobbery kisses!

we love playing before bedtime

Stay tuned for my wrecked house post!

40 Weeks

The little man has now been in this world for as long as he was in my belly!

Likes: playing, being curious, crawling all over the place, playing with newspaper and magazines, pulling up on anything that he can, trying to get the dog bone, wrinkling his nose all the time, and bananas!

Dislikes: being strapped into his carseat

What's New in the Last Week: He has been getting into the cabinets like crazy, he has blown raspberries on me a couple times, he can put his bath toys into the net hoop, and he is now able to walk along furniture. He also is doing really well with his walker! He is changing so fast these days!

Clint is banned from doing his hair after the bath.
