Holidays and Progress

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!

    So glad that you had such a wonderful Christmas with your family. What a wonderful blessing to be able to hold a friend's precious baby too. Also I love the front door so far, I cannot wait to see it all finished soon.

    Yay for the update! I have been wondering about the house and how your trip to Albuquerque was.

    The front doors look wonderful and I love seeing Andie standing in her vanity. :)

    The rain coat and boots are too cute. That will (hopefully) be our Easter gift to our kids. I told Alyn that with as much as it rains up here this is our opportunity to get some rain gear and actually use it! ;) Of course the gear does make wonderful dress up clothing too. So cute.

    Jan. 2 Wonderful updates and thankful you had a safe trip to Albuquerque in the blizzard and low visibility and blessed to be with family & friends. Your choices on the house are wonderful. What a blessing! I love the rain gear and how the boys "REALLY" broke theirs in on New Years Day. (side note: I saw Andie Grace at her horse riding session New Year's Day. She loves horses and is doing a great job. How small she looked on that big horse. I could just hear her Daddy say, "My Baby Smalls".)
