My new granite countertops were coming and by the end of the day, my kitchen would be one step closer to done. Not just done, but done in time for Christmas.
I just knew I'd be baking up some Christmas goodies while the children played at my feet and my husband merrily did the dishes. The timer would buzz and I'd pull warm sugar cookies from the oven and let them cool on those gorgeous counters.
A girl can dream, okay?
Halfway through installation, however, the installers cracked one of the slabs.
Sigh. So we're back to waiting. A little longer.
I dont know... the dried Gorilla Glue backsplash might just work... and the plywood countertops... am I sensing a trend?
Someone call up "House Beautiful."
But no matter what kind of Ca–Ra-Zy state our home may be in...
making Christmastime special this year--and every year-- is very important to my husband and me.
One of my favorite traditions is letting my oldest son color a wooden ornament from the craft store.
Then I jot down a few of his "favorites" on the back.
Instead of hanging them on the tree--where they sort of get lost--
I wanted to showcase them in the front entryway where they serve as a visual reminder of what's really important.
We are very blessed to have two healthy boys who are growing and learning and changing quite quickly.
The kitchen can wait.
