It's Snowing!!!

I'm not lying ~it's really, really snowing here! We just got done with our church Christmas party, went outside, & it looked like we were in the middle of a giant snow globe. Beautiful!

Our Cupboards

Last week Arlo and I worked for a whole Saturday on the upper cupboards in the kitchen. I like having them open but they were looking dingey and hillbilly. So we lined the backs w/beadboard (donated to us by Gordon & Sarah) and then painted them a nice peaceful white. Can you tell by this picture?
We also moved the stereo so I could have more room on the counter!

This is Pete the Pillow
