Let's get this party started!

Closing was a success, we are homeowners! We really had a good time at settlement, and enjoyed meeting the son of the previous owners, who grew up in the house and shared some great history and secret hiding spots with us. You won't find any money in the cookie jar at our house!

Day One of renovations was, in the words of Borat, "great success!" We accomplished in one day what Kyle had scheduled for six! We had some fabulous help- Kyle's parents Margie and Terry, his cousin Corey and Corey's wife Jess, Kyle's other cousin Doug, and our friend Brian. Basically, the men ripped the kitchen out, and the women spent time in the glorious sun working in the yard.

Here is the kitchen at 8 AM:
Here it is mid-morning:

At the lunch break: (and by the way, because it's our anniversary today, I am allowed to say that I think Kyle looks really hot in this picture.)

And, at the end of the day:

And finally, the kitchen is the garage:

And, a shout out to the Day one crew:
The Supervisors/Gardeners/Decorators, Margie and Jess

The laborer/electrical engineer with a constant smile, Brian

The laborer/electrician/ol'man-in-residence, TerryCorey "who says a sawzall isn't a garden tool?" Norton

And I guess that makes me the safety goggle model (we really were working in the second picture).

We're headed back tonight to spend our anniversary working! Don't worry, we're going out on the town this weekend.
