impressive my fine fellow

So I have been holed up in Debs this past week; car troubles, cold weather, and not having the urge to leave. I arrived here at our ever changing abode to find Nate has nearly finished our cabinets. He is amazing folks. Amazing. While I cozy up to the woodstove with a crying child, Nate cuddles with his various saws and creates a kitchen. Many pine boards and a couple boxes of screws later, bam you have yourself cabinets.
We have learned to not lay out dates for when we will be moved in. We've eaten our words one to many times, and folks they taste bitter, very bitter. But I will pronounce that our move in date is getting nearer every time Nate uses one of his various tools. I must admit I am getting very excited. I express this by sorting my craft materials and getting rid of excess clothing. Nate expresses his excitement by working on the house until midnight each night. How does Eedee appreciate this you ask? She doesn't. She expressed herself very clearly the other night when she awoke at 3 a.m. happy to have one of us watch her chew on her various body parts. After spending the time between 5 30 and 9 with dad, Nate had to head to work. She promptly started screaming as soon as the door closed behind his back. We will relish the day that she gets to see him at normal hours.

and it continues.

I will just start out apoligizing that I don't have any pictures this time. I keep finding myself with internet without a camera. So I have decided to just post anyways.
This new year has brought much progress for us. We have spent the last two weekens putting the ceiling up. As I am typing Nate and Grandpa John are putting up the last couple boards. The gracious Papa Miles has spent the other three days with Nate doing this task. I must admit I am glad to just cut boards for the boys, and not be the one with my hands over my head for three or four hours at a time.
I have also been able to do some staining around the house; the window wells, railings, that sort of thing. Nate passes his time putting things together; like the bathroom and dining room area. Each ay just gets us a little closer to the finish. We are pretty pumped about that.
Ms. Eedee has been staying content also. Her an I spent our first evening hanging out in the house yesterday, while we waited for Nate to finish his paid job, and it was pretty awesome. I can already tell Eedee loves it, even though her room is filled with chicken wire, paint, and power tools. But I think that's every little girls dream.
