In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

Finally Tile

 Believe it or not, the tile was the toughest thing to pick out on the whole renovation project! Any pattern was too miuch for the counter top and anything glossy was out, as the counters are leathered and not glossy at all. Those two things took out about 90% of the tile on the market. I ended up buying individual slate tiles from Wayfair. It took three rounds to get them all to us not broken. Then we realized they weren't quite consistant in size. We had to make piles by size and try to keep the rows even; they aren't in a few places but overall it looks great. 

JD did the tiling; I just came in as the grout and tile scrubber. Works out well as I can say "we did the tile" now. 

Our last item is to rock the fireplace, but it will be about a month before we tackle that as we have hooked it up to use for the rest of the winter.

This is the only thing I love about winter -
