Working Hard on Casa Pena 2.0

Since our closing date of December 20th we've been working tirelessly on getting the house ready to move in.  My mom stayed with us for almost 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years to help with Tyler so we could spend every day at the house painting, patching, cleaning, and moving.  So far we have painted the laundry room, family room, master bedroom, and completed countless other projects.  We are waiting on carpet to be installed before we can move all of the furniture in. It should be delivered either Wednesday or Thursday of this week (we are hoping).  Right now the place looks like a construction zone with paint, spackle, ladders, etc. every where. 
Once the carpet is in, we will be able to schedule movers to come and we can officially make the move to the new Casa Pena! 
I'm really excited for it and I hope that it won't take Tyler too long to adjust, although, I have a feeling we may have a few sleepless nights until he gets used to his new digs. 

Here are a few pictures of the painting progress:

Tyler really seems to love this room.  He thinks it's his truck room:

I'm not quite sure how I want to paint the tray ceiling.  White on the slanted parts and slightly darker on the ceiling or vice-versa?  I consulted google only to find you can do "whatever you want" basically.  Any suggestions/comments are much appreciated!

Family Room Before:
 I feel like some of theses "whole room" pictures don't really depict the kind of patching we had to spend hours doing before we could paint the walls.  Here are a couple of close up images that show the shoe prints, crayon, marker, boogers, dings, dents, and who knows what else.  It took forever to patch these rooms!

Family Room After:

My paint inspector:

Here are the same corners I showed above, minus the dings, etc.
