Taking down the wall!

Yay!! An exciting day it was when we took out our wall.  No longer was there a separation of old from new- but one big room!  My dear grand-father...whom we call Paw-paw, came over to help us take the wall down on July 23rd (with a little extra work being done on the 24th and 25th).  I should probably say he came and we helped him...he is such a wonderful man of God with a servants' heart- always ready to lend a helping hand wherever (and whenever) he can!  We love him! :)  So here are some pictures!! 
The reason some of these pictures look really blurry is because we had plastic up.  You can see one of the little poles holding it up on the right hand side. :)
 Being the thoughtful man that he is, paw-paw brought the plastic to keep the dust from the...more clean...side of the house. :)
Sorry.  I know this picture is sideways, but, hey, at least I put it on the post for you! :)
As you know, we moved the fridge and freezer when Dowy built the pantry. 
Now, they are no longer up against our wall but in the middle of our new kitchen! :)
Eden was skimming milk (taking the cream from the top of the milk) before the old kitchen wall came down.
Taking out the window!!!!! : D
Judah was very intently watching what Paw-paw and daddy were doing. :)
So, most of you are probably thinking "EEWWW!!! Grosss!!!!!!" but there IS a reason I put this picture here. Whenever we would wash dishes the water would go behind the sink.  We knew it would be absolutely disgusting back there and thus couldn't wait to see it. :)  Yeah, I think we were pretty accurate in our estimation of grossness! :)
A pile of grossness. :-L
YAY!!!!!!!  The drywall is down!!
Daddy using the crowbar to pry a stud loose.
Yes, we have lights in that part of the house now.  Back then it was a little dark. :)

I was standing on a ladder to get this picture for you. You should thank me. :)

Working hard.

Here is a video of them taking down the box.  
Just so you have a SMALL feel of how chaotic our home was and is still. ;)

Well, that's it for this post.  I hope you enjoyed it! Have a blessed week!

Joyfully His,
Alexis
