Kitchen and Boys

Things are coming along right now and the kitchen is looking better and better. The floor is in the cabinets are stained and the counter top should be in within the next week. Things are really looking up. The boys hung sheet rock yesterday and we bought the tile for the bathroom so we are moving in the right direction. The boys are loving having all the open space. They have found the circle and just keep running around and around.

We will be heading out on Wednesday for Texas for a family reunion. The boys are excited and really confused. We have told them we are moving to Texas and they are so confused about when and how. So we have done our best to explain that we are just going to visit this time. We do plan to go by the new house and show it to them so maybe they can have more understanding about it. Please pray that it all goes well.

I am going to have Andy try and take pictures of the progress while we are gone, but I make no promises. By the time we get back the kitchen should be done, the hard wood floors mostly done, and the bathroom quite far along.

Brazos walking on the new floor that was down.

Braxton taking his turn to walk as well. During the process the boys had to stay off the kitchen floor for like two days and it was pure torture for all of them. They thought they were so big when Roger gave them the go ahead to walk on the new tile.

The cabinets are stained and I like them more than I thought I would. I love the floor. The tile is this black, with brown and green, it is really pretty. Thanks Roger for hooking us up!

Brayson getting some freedom as well. He was so excited. Dad helping the boys with their tools. They have really been using their tools lately.

Just trying to show the stain on the cabinets in this one. The boys on the floor again. Have I told you how much they love walking on the floor.

More Updates

Birthday at our house can be fun especially when you turn 30. If only Andrea had been feeling up to par we really could have had some fun. So we sang and had cake and life went on.
