I believe soon I will have to go to blogging about what sort of mischievous activities Colton and I get into because I won't have the house to work on. I have to give a lot of credit to SuperColt for being so good during all of this remodel. Being so young he probably doesn't fully understand what we are doing, but he has been so good through out this process. I can only imagine what goes through a 5 year olds head when he sees an open can of paint.

Another sense of accomplishment came with hanging the cabinets. Mike and Anne came to help for a Saturday and were able to hang all of the cabinets and our microwave. Here is a couple of the final pictures we took:
I have since been ablet to put in our bottom wall, hook up our oven, and get our countertops ordered. We will be picking out our paint really soon and painting our kitchen. The kitchen is getting close to being done. Our next projects is painting the kitchen, finishing the walls, and working on the office. I will try and keep you posted.

Saturday was probably one of the most exciting days we have had. Mike and Anne came up to help me hang the cabinets. I can not believe the deference it made. Mike was such a good help and it seriously looks like something you see out of a kitchen magazine. The best part about the whole thing is that we no longer have to go out to the garage to get the milk; we now have kitchen appliances IN the kitchen. It is even weird to think that we can go and buy dishes, put them in our cabinets, put food on or in them that was cooked with our oven, and then clean them in our dishwasher. We should have our countertops to eat this food on in about two weeks.
My next project is to finish sealing the grout and then move my focus back up stairs to our office. Our office needs the carpet removed and the walls painted and it should be in pretty good shape. I don't know if Heather is seeing it yet, but I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I don't know many girls that could go through all of this, but Heather is one of them. She has been so patient and helpful with all of the design I can not thank her enough. She is truly wonderful.

Although our weekend got a little stressful, Colton's birthday party was a blast. It turned out great, and I believe he has just about every Superman thing possible (that is until we go to Target again and find the new line of Superman toys). Colton also really enjoyed party, here are some pictures of the kids trying to knock down the penata:
Colton's party was a success and everyone had a good time. Thank you to everyone that contributed (Mom for the cakes, Sue for her house, and Heather for having the best 5 year old there is). Colton also thanks everyone for his gifts; he doesn't go to sleep until they are all in his room right next to his bed.
For the house, I did not get as far on the kitchen as I thought. There is more to think about than anyone could ever imagine (unless you have tiled before). I did not know there was so much planning envolved, but I am glad I took my time because when it is done, it will be awesome. I do have a deadline of this coming weekend (October 7th) to finish the tile because I have Mike coming over to help with hanging the cabinets.
