Quilt + Christmas + Remodel

I have a few pics that don't have anything to do with anything, but I feel the need to blog about 'em! 
So here we go.

My next quilt.... in the making! It's an adorable pattern & I love it. Blue & Brown. The pattern is from Thimble Blossoms. By the way, if you're interested in learning how to sew you have the opportunity to learn the same way I did. Mrs Gateley called lastnight and told me they have started a new sewing class at St Ann's on Tuesdays from 10-11. Let me know if you want more info. You might think it's crazy, but those lil old ladies are hilarious and so fun! And they will love you.

Santa came and visited Scout & Hagen!
Scout finding her stocking:

Mom & Dad trying to figure out how to use
their new iPad. Love them.

Chad surprised me with a Wii! I am pretty excited about it. Here are a few pics of Chad trying it out...
I just love him!
 Giving his opponent the right hook!

Sweet Molly! Cheesing for the camera.
She's doing so great and growing! We are going
to halter break her this week...ahh!

And finally... the pics of the home remodel.

Chad & my dad have been working for quite a while building us some new cabinets. They've made new cabinets for every place there's a cabinet in this house: kitchen, laundry room, hallway linen, bathroom vanities and even added a few to the kitchen & bathrooms! I am sooo excited! I'm amazed by my dad's talent in his ability to build cabinets and make great use of space (which we NEED!). Chad has learned a lot from him and they have both worked really hard.

The demolition

Messy kitchen

 And where are all the things that were in the cabinets, you say?

(This is only 1/3 of it... the rest is piled in the spare bedroom)
 This part is stressful to me, but it will be well worth it!
From this pic it looks like we could be on an episode of Hoarders!

Scout thinks it's exhausting...

Working until late in the night to install the new cabinets!

 Looks awesome! And cabinets go all the way to the top now, so
lots more space! I also like how they thought to place
the cabinets at different depths.

Probably one of the most exciting parts, a pantry
beside the fridge! Ahh!! I can't wait!
To be continued....
