Creation of a Kitchen Island

My Handy Husband built this kitchen island with his bare hands :) Isn't he wonderful??it only took a couple days. :) We needed more work space, drawer space and cabinet space so this adds exactly what we needed.... We never do anything the traditional way. We like handmade orginal stuff :) The top is like a roughed up butcher block and the bottom is black stained cabinets, drawers and bead board that is sanded down to look rustic like our kitchen table :) I think it turned out great!
Wood for the Top

This is what we started with

Newly stained

After the sanding

In progress....

Working hard!

Briley's Party!

Here are pictures from Briley's Bday party. This year was her first year to have all her friends at the party and actually play with them and have fun..... It was so cute watching them all hang out.....She had so much fun. The theme was a barbie princess ballerina party. The girls dressed as princesses and ballerinas and ate pizza and jumped in a huge castle bounce house! Everyone had a great time and we got some great pictures!
