Ripping Out Carpet

Jenny and I ripped the carpet out of the livingroom today. What an icky sweaty dusty job! And--even after you get all the pad and carpet out--you still have to pull up all the tack strips, pry out all the staples, and take the molding off!  Jenny and Katie are doing that part :)

Tomorrow we're going to put down laminate flooring. It'll make much more sense with three kids, three adults, and three dogs going in and out of the house all day... We did the same thing to the family room last month (see the pic above), although that was a much bigger job because we also painted the pecky cedar on the walls--now THAT was a lot of work! Thank goodness for my little helpers--it turned out so well...
