A VERY talented husband

Greg is the best!! If you need something fixed or built he has the skills. For the past year we have been working on our kitchen. It is still a work in progress, but there has been quite a bit of progress lately. When we started the project, we decided that we would only do what we could pay for. We were not going to borrow any money, which seems like the safe thing to do in the current economy.

Well, one year later, the wallpaper is all gone, a beautiful wainscot has been added to the dining room, new crown molding is added, the flourescent light is gone and a beautiful tray ceiling has taken it's place, all the light fixtures are new, the desk is gone with a pantry in it's place, the upper cabinets have been removed over the snack bar, and all the cabinet hardware is new.

We still have a wish list and a few unfinished the end of the cabinet where the upper ones were removed....but the results are very nice so far.

Thank you Greg!!! You are amazing.

The house is getting old....but, I'm very content here.

It looks great!! Taking the cabinets out opened up the kitchen. I'm glad you are being wise and doing as it goes. It always takes time for things we want but it is worth it at the end.

Mom it looks like a new kitchen. I love how it turned out. I can't imagine you living anywhere else and I hope you and Dad stay there for a very long time.

When Jaden said his prayers tonight he said (without our help) that he was very thankful that he could go to Grandma and Grandpa's house. I know my kids love coming there.
