Here is a tour of my kitchen....
Here is the view when you walk in from the front door. You can see the breakfast bar and Anna playing with her webkinz on the laptop. You can also see our dining table.
Here is our dining room an extension of our kitchen. In the hutch we keep all our homeschooling supplies as well as the bench seat lifts up and we store stuff in there. The shelves are where I keep my teapots and cups. The dining table is where we do the majority of our homeschooling. I made the curtains out of a table cloth I found on clearance at Ross.
Here is the kitchen I keep my cast iron hanging on the wall as well as some more mugs over the stove. I find this helps free up the cupboards for more storage.
Here is the view out the kitchen window. I love standing here and looking out the window. I waited and prayed a long time for a view like this and I thank God everyday for it! I love to play music when I am in the kitchen especially classical music.
Here is Anna with her webkinz at the breakfast bar I love this part of the kitchen I can talk to the children while I am cooking.
Here I am cooking and the dogs are really hoping I am gonna drop something good hehehe!!
This is what I usually see when I walk in my kitchen. My hungry Mastiff puppy waiting to be fed again....even though we all know he just ate lol!
This is the other side of the breakfast bar. This is where I keep my cookbooks and I have a small magnetic pocket on the side of the fridge this is where unopened mail goes.... I love clean counters. I love to keep them wiped down and free of clutter.
This is my new stove!! This was a recent gift from my Father. When we first moved into the house my Dad sent me in the mail a carbon monoxide detector he is very thoughtful like that. And sure enough we weren't in the house 2 weeks and the CO alarm went off. We got everyone out of the house and opened all the windows and we figured out pretty quickly our stove had a CO Leak....Well sadly we lost our pet bird but thankfuly none of us were hurt. And my Daddy he went right out and bought me a new stove. How wonderful is that!
Here is a peek into my drawers...I try to keep them tidy but I have 3 children who sometimes have a different idea.
In this drawer is where I keep all those wonderful potholders Anna makes for me on her loom.
Right off the kitchen is this little room that is where the pantry is/laundry/mudroom/backdoor. This is where we feed the dogs and you can see the lovely towel on the wall to catch all of Wyatt's drool hehehe!!
There is always a load of laundry that needs to be done. So it is so nice to have the laundry so close to the kitchen it really helps to be able to quickly get a load in or put stuff in the dryer while I am cooking. We have actually had a few days recently that we were able to hang the laundry outside to dry!!
Here is our kitchen being put to good use. Noah made us a very nice stew for sunday dinner....
And Anna made her first apple pie for a special Sunday Treat....I realized when Anna went to bake her pie I do not own a pie pan, I had one but it must have disappeared in the recent move. So we used a round cake pan...deep dish right!!
I hope you enjoyed visiting our Home with us in the kitchen ~Blessings Love Heather
