This is my lovely stove! I say "lovely" w/out a sarcastic tone. Only the back 2 burners work, but hey... I'm not complaining! Isn't the copper back splash great? Below are our double wall mounted ovens. Take a good look because on Tuesday morning they're leaving! These pictures were taken before we moved in. We painted the cabinets green. I'll have to post an "after" picture. I really like this double wall mounted oven, but some ladies in our church family were really sneaky and took up a collection for us to have our kitchen appliances replaced. They have been deemed "unsafe". What a HUGE blessing and a really great surprise! I was able to go pick out what I wanted and my new glass- top- range, microwave, and DISHWASHER are going to be delivered and installed on Tuesday morning! I can't wait. I really will miss the copper tiles though. :( I chose to replace the stove top with a free standing range and the wall oven section will be replaced with lower cabinets and countertop! The pic below shows the only counter space in the kitchen. We'll be replacing this section of countertop since the dishwasher will be added on the right of the sink and will need to be framed in. We've picked out a black speckled laminate countertop that sort of mocks granite to go with the all white appliances and hopefully someday my dream black and white checkered floor! I think we'll also be replacing the kitchen sink with stainless steel.

How exciting!!!!!!!
The parsonage at Germantown Baptist Church is getting a new kitchen before we move in!

I am so excited to FINALLY have a dishwasher!

Woo Hoo!

Been praying for you guys, and of course for Justin.

Please pray the the house here in Streamwood sells SOON!

Love you and can't wait to see you in NOVEMBER!

That is so wonderful of your church family! I love remodeling and redoing things. I'm beginning to have that itch again (it's been a few months), but that may have to wait until we move next summer.

Enjoy the new stuff and I can't wait to see the after pics!

Oh, and by the way . . . the shark didn't have teeth (I'm not really that brave!)

Hey! You got more pictures uploaded - you've been spending a lot of time in the corner of your bedroom, haven't you?! :) I'm so glad you're getting the new stuff - did they install it this morning? Is it functional or do you have to wait till the cabinets are modified? When is that getting done? So many questions - I know!
