Pictureful Update!

Still building away.. (or not..).  We have made small bits of progress, and they are forming my driveway and sidewalks today!  I can't wait to go see them.  Carter is sleeping, but Ches got to see them this morning..they are hoping to pour them on Wednesday before we get very cold weather (they really aren't supposed to pour concrete under 55 degrees).

Here are some updated pictures!
My ovens are in!  Woohoo, no more coordinating times for turkey AND dressing! : )

If I've already added these..just ignore me.  I'm excited to have a dishwasher, even uninstalled!

Microwave Drawer.  We've had a microwave in the island before (love!), but this way, it opens, and you set the food down into it.

Obviously, we go late in the day when the sun is setting..  my turquoise lights are up!

My oven!  They just cut the hole this day..I think there's another picture with the burners around here somewhere. : )

The light in the stairway.  Cool ceiling design, huh?

VERY happy with my sink and faucet.  They switched the sprayer and handle was all set up for a lefty.  Which I am not.

Marble across the threshold of the shower..I thought it might be easier than cleaning grout as the doors dripped.

Same thing up on the half wall.

Master bath.  We had the mirrors framed, the sconces put on the framing..and there is a set of shelves over the tub for a tv!

The shower almost finished.

Shelves unfinished.

Master bath sinks and faucets, discontinued Marielle, and they were so hard to find!  I had to order each one from all over the US. : )  We didn't know when we chose these!

Looking up into the office light..the diffusers for these are in my van. : )  Don't want them broken!

Intercom System got installed!

Security lights paint outside yet.

Clay's shower with the Ashfield faucet.

He got the Price Pfister Ashfield..just what he begged us for this summer!

Here's the picture with the burners!  It came with a griddle, and a wok holder.  Gotta get one of them with a rounded bottom. ; )  I think the little pad is for a tea kettle.  I'm not even sure! ; )

My big copper fixture out front.  Yay!!

Fireplace is finished. : )

Carter's wall is striped now.  It's just the same color (SW Anew Gray) in a flat/gloss finish stripe.

The glaze sample for the kitchen.  I'm having them glazed (just the seams) with SW Dorian Gray.  Kinda taupey-gray.  Looks good!

Even closer.
And our days have still been busy!  My sweetest big boy turned 13!!  He wanted Shogun and to go bowling with his party!  I think he's not ready for his friends to see him give himself insulin (especially since he's only told a couple of them).  Bless his heart.

Right in front of the fire! : )

Mary Claire's Girl Scout Lego Robotics team at the animal shelter interviewing employees about an invention for animals after a natural disaster.
She's actually been really busy every Friday night since school started.  She's been getting ready for the First Lego League Robotics competition.  At the local qualifier last weekend, they qualified for State!  She's very excited, and we are getting the girls ready to take them to Mountain Home (on the other side of Arkansas!) on December 21st!  The Kappa Delta girls that have been sooo helpful aren't going to be able to make it though. : (  We'll miss them!  (..and I really worked on them.  No good.  They all live out of state.)

Mary Claire and me at the Walton Arts Center seeing White Christmas for Leigh's birthday!

Carter with us on Thanksgiving night shopping at Toys 'R Us.  He LOVED the little grocery carts!  We got him a little blue and green one in a box. : )  He even pushed these pink two around for-ever!!
So..yes, busy.  More than a million things going on around here.  We are still praying for a closing near the end of next week.  We still lack wood floors and carpet on the inside, mirrors and shower doors, and a good cleaning job (and some touch ups and a punch list).  The outside needs drives and sidewalks, irrigation and landscaping.  Almost done.

And then..we prepare for Christmas!  We may be decorating a stack of boxes with lights. ; )  Hopefully, we can actually put up a tree!  And stockings..

Be thankful for your warm home, space for a tree, and some real estate to park your car's the little things. : )

Happy Holly Days!

The house looks so great! Sigh, a double oven is my dream! I can't imagine having to make all those decisions... We had our master bath re-done. We started in March, and just finished a few weeks ago because I could not decide on a paint colour. So we had a beautifully re-done bathroom, with walls that had wallpaper partially stripped off down to unfinished wallboard!
