Getting close!

After our big adventure in Florida, the girls (including awesome Aunt Megan), headed back up to NC, where lots of good workers were scurrying along to finish what needs to be done on our house. Awesome Uncle David joined them and Paul to build the kitchen cabinets. We are so thankful for all the help we are getting from friends and family right now. We are in a slightly tough situation. However, it is entirely of our own making, not like someone is sick or something. (Please God can you keep us healthy for now, by the way!) But still folks have been so wonderful and willing to give us a shoulder to lean on. Thanks everyone. Really. It would  be such a treat to get to return the favors sometime too. But for now we will just do our best to receive grace well and allow others the joy of lending it.

Here is where we were as of Monday at the house:

 Aren't the floors beautiful? And with the cabinets up, you can see the skeleton of a kitchen in there right?

 More lovely floors

 Drywall! (and ladders, lots of ladders, see below. : ) )

 Penny tile, which I like even more in real life than in the magazines, it turns out.

And here is where we are today, it still looks more like a construction site than a home, but we are getting some serious progress.

 Look, it's a bathroom now!

Kitchen now includes faucet and dishwasher

 Drywall primed . . . I love white. Prepare for more white. Also notice the absence of ladders in all pictures.

We are getting really excited!

And here are some cute sisters goofing off just to round out the post:
