Kitchen FUN.

After 1.5 years our small kitchen is ALMOST finished.  Here is a glimpse of where we started:

Leading up to today, here are several phases this small house has been through, like staining our cabinets brown (action shot):

A splash of paint and new light fixtures:

New flooring (engineered hickory hardwood) and knocking out 27 inches of the wall between the kitchen and dining room:

Repainting the cabinets and ripping out the formica counter tops:

 We have one or two minor kitchen/dining room projects left and then we are DONE!  It has been a blast dreaming and creating.  We find ourselves sitting in our dining room just staring into our new kitchen.

Lastly, we have also been celebrating birthdays!  My Gramps turned 95 years old this past Sunday:

He is strong, athletic, good looking, and truly a man of God.  We are blessed to have him as the head of our family.  We love you Big G.
