Kitchen is Moving Right Along!

Randy's "homemade" cookies I made for them - right off the oven!

The bar area

this gives the true color of the cabinets and it has the crown molding on top

Needless to say, a kitchen remodel is the most trying on a family. Thank goodness for family who lives hours away and offers to take your kids when your pulling out cabinets and are without counters and a sink! The girls have spent the majority of the week with Aunt Kori in Indiana and during that time we've had our wood floors put in and the cabinets put in. Counters get measured tomorrow and hopefully will be fuctioning by the time we go back to school. So much for getting to enjoy it over the summer! I really couldn't be happier with how smooth everything has gone and I haven't hurt Chris yet, come close, but haven't done actual harm to him and probably won't since he says we can go and buy a new stove tonight!!!! For those of you who don't know, I've been using a Rankin original. My stove came from the farm house when dad moved. We figured it to be about 17-18 years old. I think I'm due for a new model! Happy shopping tonight!

That is really going to look nice! It seems that you found ways to eat around the mess. Just think how nice it will be when school starts that you won't have the mess you've been dealing with. Yeah for Kori for taking the girls to actually be able to work nonstop to get it done. I do believe that you deserve a new stove. The only bad thing: now you'll have to cook!

Thanks for the text - I love love the way your kitchen is coming together! Can't wait to see the finished product! So glad you can go ahead with the new stove too.
BTW - those cookies? Didn't you think they were going to be bigger than they were? The picture on the package looks great - pull out the cookies - tiny! (I made the same ones:) Aunt Stacy

LOVE IT!! And can't wait to see it in a few weeks! I believe Jacob and I are around 17 days on the "countdown to Illinois" that we have to go through every evening on my phone calendar!
It looks great and I'm so glad you're finally getting your new kitchen!
I'm green with envy! No lie!
