Spring Break

Well, the kids spring break is almost to an end and they have had a good week. Our youngest daughter is at her aunt's house having fun and getting spoiled. Our middle daughter has been gone since yesterday. Spending time with her boyfriend and his family. Everyone else is here and it has been unusually quiet. Not sure if I like that or not. I am used to a busy noisy house.
Today our oldest daughter is taking our dog to the beauty shop,as we call it, to get groomed and bathed. It takes 3 hours for them to get her beautiful,so Brie made an eye appointment while she is waiting for the dog.
I am working today but only 3 kids today. Not bad for spring break. It snowed again yesterday. My son told me it was snowing and I said don't say that-that is a bad word haha:) I am sick of snow and would love to see some warm weather here soon!!!! We got about an inch so maybe it will melt off today.
At least the birds are singing and I did see a robin yesterday so that is a good sign for spring,right? :)
Hope you all have a great weekend.

We were out doing some Easter bunny shopping and I found these wonderful smelling flowers. They smell just like lilacs which I love,but these are hyacinths. I had to bring some spring into the house because it is snowing today. I can't resist flowers anyway:)Am planning on planting them as soon as it gets warmer. Hopefully soon.

We have cabinets!!

We almost have our kitchen back now. We do have cabinets,but now I have to decide where to put everything. That is the hard part. Today my hubby is putting in the plumbing for the sink and will wire for the lights so we can see :). At least I can cook dinners in there now. We have to finish up the drywall and sand then I get to paint and put up the border. Hopefully, this week we will be able to show you the completed project. With both of us working full time it is difficult to get all this done quickly,but I really like the way it is coming together!!!
Thanks Dad sooooo much for coming and putting in our new cabinets for us!!!!!
By the way, the 2nd picture where there is a space between cabinets is where my future dishwasher is going.*smile*

We are making progress

We finally have walls in our kitchen YEAH!!!!! I am so excited. The kitchen is really starting to look nice. My dad and hubby and a couple of other guys have been working very very hard to get this done, and I really appreciate all their hard work.
We went last night to Menards to get the paint and a few other things. Our paint color is named Ice Cream. Yes, you read it right!! I thought it was a cool name for kitchen paint,huh??? The girls and my mom helped pick out the color. We had to have the guy adjust the color just a little but I think it will look good.Will try to have more pictures later (hopefully with paint and maybe border on the walls:))

This is why I haven't been on much...........


I love remodeling simply for the fact that you can see what "lovely" wallpaper was there before(and I am soooo glad they covered this up)*smile*. I tried to write about each picture beside the pictures but I can't figure out how to do that so, will just have to describe them here at the bottom of the post. Don't ya just love that wallpaper that used to be there(don't know how many years ago?) Our son had to have his macho picture taken with the hammer. He helped alot being the "gopher" all day and taking pieces of wood out to the dumpster. Tired out quicker than everyone else though.As you can see we had a very busy day.Got most of the walls down and only have the one behind the fridge to go and then wiring and drywalling and lights are next. We have til Wednesday to get all this done and I am working this week so that ought to be quite interesting. I know it will all be worth the work . Will keep posting pictures of the progress. Can't wait to show you all the finished work!!!
Mom and Dad are on their way with our cabinets. I think they are in Kentucky until this morning and are on their way to my grandparents today.

Photo Hunt- Party

This is a couple of photos of our son's first birthday party with us. We adopted him about 4 years ago. It was a star wars cake and looking at his "blue" lips, looks like the frosting was good.
