Note Steven and Gabby's outfits. The Halloween costumes have remained quite popular - Gabby's is joined by a motorcycle helmet :)
We wish Dennis and Steffi live at least a little closer so we could get together more often. We had a great time catching up, learning a little German, eating a lot of food, and just spending time with them. Thanks so much for coming up to see us, guys!
I feel like the pictures don't even do it justice. I have SO much more storage and counter space, now. The kitchen is much better lit - they removed the florescent light, hung the 3-light pendant and installed 4 pot-lights. They ran electricity from behind the fridge, dug a trench in the slab under the tiles to lay the wiring to the new island so I can have power for appliances. It was SO MUCH WORK. But well worth every hour. This kitchen went from okay to amazing! Steve's been working on it for about 2 weeks straight now and I am so amazed by the work he has done.
You may notice from the pictures, however, that we are a little afraid of color. Tonight, we talked about possible painting a wall or two (gasp!). We'll see how that goes. For now, we're pretty beige but we're working on it.
And now you're all caught up!
