It's a Birthday Celebration!

Matthew 1:21"And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."

Top that Christmas present!

Happy Birthday to my Lord and Savior! I hope that in all the hustle and bustle of this time of year, you are finding peace in Him and remembering why we celebrate this special birthday.

Last I reported, I was tiling the kitchen floor for Thanksgiving with the kids. I did get that done, and we've tackled several more projects along the way. We had our neighborhood hayride and Christmas party last night, and I was frantically trying to get everything done....didn't happen! That's ok, though. I think I was the only one who noticed. I've taken several pictures along the way with intentions of posting them.... again...didn't happen, so here's what we've gotten done.

Gayland just sanded down and finished our new island Friday evening. I LOVE it!!

Here's the tile I finished laying the week of Thanksgiving. That wall there still needs sealing and trim put on.

I've been working on the pantry since then. Here are the walls. I'm not sure you can tell much from the photo, but I tried to get somewhat of a leather look. I'm not sure what it looks like, but I like it, anyway!

Gayland got the ceiling and floor put in, and I've been working tonight to get the floor stained.

Now for the shelves!! I hope everyone is having a blessed Christmas Season!
