Busy Week, Busy Weekend, Busy Times

I am not sure if you all remember or not, but a couple months ago I re-finished my kitchen cabinets. I just recently decided to make myself some new countertops. Yep, you heard me correctly - I made my very own wood countertops. I love decorating with primitives and antiques and after seeing this done in one of my favorite primitive shops..... I decided to ask my FIL for a little help. He showed me the ropes and I took off. Here is what my kitchen looks like now. I stained my wood knobs a Dark Walnut Stain and stained my countertops the same to tie everything in together. Here are a couple pics to share with you.
We also added a new faucet. Something not so cheap, but yet something to add a different look.
I would take breaks here and there while finishing my kitchen countertops and one afternoon while I was sitting on the couch, Cameron hopped up into my chair and watched Wow Wow Wubbzy. Isn't he just the cutest little guy you have ever seen? He is just getting so big - I can't believe it!! It seems like yesterday that I was heading into the hospital to have him or better yet heading to the fertility specialist to create our little miracle.
It was funny because the other day I was finishing getting ready and Cameron comes in with a shirt that Daddy had on the previous day. Well, he wanted to be just like Daddy so he asked me to put Daddy's shirt on him. I gladly obliged and added a few clothes pins to tighten it up here and there. He was so proudly displaying the fact that he could wear Daddy's shirts. Isn't this too cute?!?
I was so happy to rest and relax after I got things done with my kitchen. Cameron came up to snuggle with me and we sat and watched some tv. Oh yes, we always have to have blankie and Horton close by. He has never gotten into Horton Hears a Who, but he loves the stuffed animal and believe it or not....... the only stuffed animal that gets a ticket to get out of the bed is Horton. The other 12 stuffed animals never get to leave......poor friends! Anyway, I just had to share this sweet picture with you. He is getting older and soon these snugly moments will be no more. Hopefully I still have plenty of time, but they are becoming more far and few between which is sad. Just enjoy those cuddly moments more and squeeze them a bit harder because they grow so fast!!
My parents are coming in for a couple days...... I can hardly wait!! Talk to you all in a couple days.

I just love the counter tops. I can't believe that you can do that-they look amazing.

You little one is adorable in the first picture. Looks like you had a good time together.

I absolutely LOVE those counter tops!!! I also love the primitive look. Did you glue the boards together or buy them that way? Could you please tell how you did that? I would soooo very much like to know what is involved in doing a project like that! Oh, by the way, what a handsome young man you have there!!!!
