After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

It's DONE! (A family project over break)

Brent took this week between Christmas and New Years off and we needed a fun project to do with the kids. 

Enter this piece of furniture that has for some reason made the move every time in the last several years. 


And a skill saw:


And a little idea from the wife. (HEY!  We could use this drawer here!)


And some helpful children.


And things begin to take shape.  We gave a fridge, microwave, stove top, oven and a drawer for storage.  A counter is in the design, but not installed just yet.


Then, late one night after they are all in bed, mom and dad slam out the last finishing touches.



I must say, we are super pleased with the results!


Here's hoping it gets a ton of use over many years!


And the husband doesn't decide to remodel it any time soon.   


He tends to do things like that.


One more time . . .

Before 
 

After




And we have only a handful of scraps left over.  

Happy New Year Everyone!

That's amazing!! My favorite part is Carsten eating the paint brush. That looks very helpful.
