hello all!!
Sorry it has been so long since my last post, but life has been crazy!
We are currently in NYC! Destinee (John's sister) had a beautiful little boy on July 9th. He was 7lbs and 15oz and 21 inches long. So we are an Aunt and Uncle! (I'm super excited)

While we've been gone, the work has continued at our house!! But first to catch you all up on what we'd done before we left!

first a sneak peek at the moving announcements I've made!

complete with envelope liners :)

johnny looking happy that the kitchen is done!

painted kitchen cabinets! (they've gotten their second coat since this photo)

isn't the white glorious??

lauren being wonderful doing the cutting in around the ceiling in the living room

my super wonderful shelly belly!! she has been sooo amazing she's helped the most out of everybody!!

sorry for the dust specs (sanding = evil) but you get the idea
this is the living room and dinning room

other side of the same room

we failed to make friends with the electricians and they have some stuff to finish

our hardwired smoke alarms

new breaker boxes!

ceiling fan in the master bedroom and the den

sadly the light will not turn on/off with the wall switch

my beautiful magnolia blossom from the back yard

the guest bathroom has the 2nd coat and the cutting done since this picture, and most of the darn latex sanded off. It need oil based paint. anyone know how to paint/sand behind the toilet?

I love LOVE our kitchen and laundry room!

cutting in is done in this room too!! all it needs it the trim and doors finished!!

its really not so dark...
and its done all but the oil trim

drywalled and painted now, painted picture soon to come I promise!!

It's coming along nicely! Bet you'll be glad when it's ALL done!

I love your address announcements. Do you scrapbook too?
