Show Us Where You Live-Kitchen (picture.overload.)

We have done so much to our!
This picture is of the kitchen before we moved in. We were able to take pictures while the previous owners were packing up. :)
When I started digging a little deeper I found pictures of our kitchen from the last time Kelly's Korner did the "Show Us Where You Live" in 2009. funny....

We have lived here 2 year this past Aug. Looking back I can't believe everything we have done! Thanks so much to our family for all their help!
So here is the kitchen of today!
(It's a bit messy compared to the previous photos but I guess that's what happens with a 4 month old)
Also the quality isn't that great, thanks to the cracked iPhone. :(
We have new appliances that match now. I painted the cabinets myself. Mark changed the hardware, thanks to Ikea! We also used a counter top paint to update the counters. The back splash has also been painted (three times since last picture, oops)

I hate all the stuff on the fridge but I told myself I wouldn't take it down, that's how it is almost everyday-messy. That's too bad! Ha!

We took the door off and put up a gate. The baby gate is usually up keeping the dogs in the kitchen when we don't want them in the living room. I keep it under there. LOL! The little desk area looked WAY better last go-round but oh well! It's fun to see how much we changed.

When I started looking for the "before" kitchen photos I found a few photos of some of the other rooms that have already been featured so I decided to stick these in here too! Enjoy!
This is the before Master Bedroom:
Inside Master Bedroom:
Master Bedroom last year...

Here was the living room from the front door:

Then last year...

WOW! Those are just a few I found. I know there they are now so I hope I remember to post them each week along with my new ones. It's so fun to look back. Can you imagine what it will be like to look back in 10 years...yikes!?!?!?
P.S. I have had a few people ask questions about what happened to Ryder. I am going to begin writing "the boys birth story" soon, when I am finished I will post it. At first I didn't think I wanted to write/post about that day. Now that a few months have past I decided I want to have it in our journal. I posted throughout the pregnancy and I want to also document Wyatt's birth. It was a celebration as much as it was a huge loss. So, soon to come...Our Boys Birth Story
