Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Florida

Can the excautor spend money when a will is still in probate for her own personnel use such as new roof for her home, lights, door knobs, furniture, washer and dryer etc. Not for the deceased property to fix and sell? I have to add my father 15 years ago wrote the will and did leave everything to her. Except 5000.00 to his other 6 children. His estate is worth 1.2 milliion. Can we contest the will if she is doing this?

You can contest the will if you think it is invalid. If the estate hasn't been administered, how does this person have access to the decedent's accounts?
