Twas the night before renovations...

One thing to note: Just so you know I haven't been pregnant for well over a year - I was pregnant at the time we started this renovation and lost that baby in January 2010. 
One the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me - one widened doorway and two groovy open concept shelves.

It has been a crazy seven weeks since we moved. I've blogged a couple of times but not really opened up the personal side of things. My grandfather died about a week after we moved. He was in poor health but it was not really expected. My grandmother has Alzheimer's and is currently having some pretty significant physical problems as well. I would appreciate your prayers especially for quality medical care - it is harder to get to in the area they live (very rural).

I was really participating in unpacking, settling in and the renovation - then the nausea hit. Yep - we are expecting baby #3. So renovations have majorly shifted on the shoulders of my husband. Not only the renovat8ions but a lot of cooking, cleaning and children responsibilities. In spite of the overwhelming-ness of all that - he has made some huge progress on the kitchen. So without further ado - here are some pics of the progress.

Here's the way it was left after Thanksgiving: The gap in the cabinets is where the fridge used to sit. The mismatched lower cabinets are the the "repurposed" ones from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore (love that place!)

This is the kitchen from the opposite direction where we are widening the doorway to the pantry to insert out big deep freezer. No - having it hanging out in the middle of the floor is not permanent LOL!

Here is the doorway opened - just needing paint and we can move the freezer!

Here's my true love putting up the open shelves
- yay! And our little one admiring her Daddy's new miter saw (birthday gift from his parents/sisters).
