we're definitely making progress!

Dave has had the last 4 days off, and he's been working very hard in the kitchen. we've made alot of progress, and if you haven't been keeping up with the running tab in the side bar, I've got pictures for you tonight, so you can see what we've been up to.

the kitchen is now all drywalled- and only days away from being ready to paint! that's exciting news, as for the last 8 months, we've been looking at the studs and insulation. that alone has made a big improvement in the kitchen, and I'm anxious to get it painted.

A is always daddy's willing helper, and here she's helping him measure something. tonight she came into the kitchen, struggling to carry her little chair. she wanted to help daddy hold the drywall.

even though it's been over three weeks since we've started on the kitchen, it took until tonight to hang the first cabinet! there is alot of preparation that Dave needs to do, but we sure were happy to hang some of our cabinets tonight. it's good for the morale!

A is back in the kitchen, this time to help daddy screw in the soffit. this will get a painted trim board along the top, so it will look much better when it's done.

and here's the cause for celebration- 3 cabinets hung! it's really starting to look like a kitchen in there! tomorrow we will start installing some of the back splash. I'm anxious to see how that will look. (this is what we're using for our backsplash. it's a reproduction of an old tin ceiling. we got it at Lowe's.)

here is the ceiling we re-did. after moving the wall over 24", we were concerned that the old and new ceiling would not blend in. i was able to get the whole ceiling painted yesterday, and aside from where i still need to paint after the textured paint cures, you can't even tell where the seam is. we are very happy about that!

so, onward and upward! every day gets a little bit better, and i sure am excited about getting a sink back in the kitchen soon!
