Introducing the newest grandchild, CATE!

Carrie gave birth to a little baby girl last night, June 4, 2009, she was named Cate Olivia Skiba. She was 5lbs 14oz and 19 inches long. She actually has hair, unlike big sister Kierstie. But Cate has the same birthmark Kierstie did. All of the Skiba kids with papa. And yes Max was playing video games, I guess all day at the hospital was already boring him. The excitement was gone for him, but he still loves his little sisters. Kierstie is already mommy's little helper and loves to take care of her little sister. All the Skiba girls are just as happy as can be.

The big remodel

If anyone has been wondering what we have been up to for the past 4 months I will show you. We have been remodeling Corinne's mothers house. After 35 years the time has finally come to update the house a little. With Jim's building experitise and Heather's designs this is what we have come up with. It still is not complete, but when is any project ever complete? The first picture taken was after the dark wood paneling came off the walls. Everything was torn out from this room even the green shag carpet. Sorry to everyone who liked it. After tearing everything apart it was a mess for months. Now we have something great to look at. There is still a lot more work to be done, but for now she can sit back and watch the Suns game on her 50" plasma flat screen that is attached to the wall on an arm. All hooked up with surround sound so she can feel like she is really at the game.
