I got to finally meet Celeste's baby girl just before she turned 5 months old. Oh! She is so precious! I felt like I could hang out with her all day and soak in all her expressions and noises and cuteness. I loved her before I knew her. I am so thankful Noel and Celeste were blessed with Scottlyn - what a precious gift!
By the way, my whole family was in Albuquerque for Christmas. I got to meet Scottlyn the day after Christmas. We had a wonderful time with my family. I took a lot of great pictures - but on my dad's camera, so I'll have to wait till he sends them to me to post 'em.
Here is one for all of you asking for pictures....the front door. Picture it stained, with trim work around it, and a window above it.
My pictures are in random order - But here are my kids after opening their Christmas gift from their great-grandparents. They were all so excited to open their mud boots and matching rain coats. They quickly got dressed then went outside in hopes of finding a rain or mud puddle. There were none that day. But they have put them to use every day since!
And here we are back to the house.... This particular day, the cabinets were being installed. This will be Andie's vanity. It will be painted white, and the walls purple. The kids have a jack & jill bath, but I turned her vanity to face into her room. Hopefully this helps reduce fights over the bathroom in the future.
Here is the start of the kitchen cabinetry. It is starting to feel more real now. Still a lot to be done, and we're still not sure when it will be done. But it is always fun to see progress. After what was at least a full year of researching and pricing appliances - I finally ordered appliances today. And my pretty red kitchen sink, too! Can't wait!
