All I Want for Christmas...

is this kitchen to be done.  That, however, was not meant to be.

We primed the ceiling and walls last night and the night before and contractor-father-in-law made the opening between the dining room and kitchen and laid the subfloor this week.  Progress!  It's being made!  Hopefully, we'll be talking about cabinets here in like two weeks.

Unfortunately for me, my little camera card reader doohickey has died a horrible, horrible death, which means I can not get any pictures off my camera to show you the opening or the walls.  Sad!

I need to pick up another one this week.  Today, we got paint samples for the trim and more paint to fix up the dining room wall and potentially paint the kitchen.  (The same bamboo shoot green as the rest of the downstairs.)  More details when I have the actual pictures.

In the meantime, my awesome husband got me How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack: Defend Yourself When the Lawn Warriors Strike (And They Will)  for Christmas. Attack Gnomes! Awesome!

Looking very innocent, isn't he?
I am thinking about getting this this growth chart to hang up somewhere in the kitchen.  My parents would measure us when we were growing up on various walls in various kitchens, but we moved every three or four years, so I kind of like the idea of something we can take with us.  Not that I am going anywhere, when this kitchen is done.  

I am actually wondering if my red/white/green thing I end up having in the house is really gnome related and not very woodland-ey at all.  

In any case, we had a great holiday, and I hope you all did, too!

Red/white/green is very woodlandy. Where do you think gnomes live? In woodlands.
