New Kitchen

Okay well it really isn't that "new," but slightly remodeled. We purchased this hoosier back in the spring and it has finally been refinished and moved into the kitchen. When we purchased it, it was white with a blue table and blue sides. It had apparently been used by an elderly couple who had painted it, then sold to the person we purchased it from. They had never gotten around to refinishing it. After several trip to PA (a garage and drive way made the process easier despite the drive) we scrapped it down and repainted it white. During this we discovered that our model is called the "snow white" and the orange and green table are the original colors. We suspect that it was probably all green, based on the layers that came off.

With the edition of the new smaller wire shelves the kitchen feels much lager, and more functional.

November 7 & 8, 2009

We went to NY to visit Max, Daphne and their parents. As an added bonus, we got to see Amanda and David on Saturday night and again on Sunday afternoon.

It was a perfect grandparent weekend: We got to see Daphne learn to crawl and also watched as she had her first solid food (but got to leave before the food came out the other end).
