Fun Things We Found in Our Super Old Kitchen

Apparently it was the thing back in the day of kitchen remodel to hid newspaper in places where someone may find it years and years later. Last week, when Bryan demolished the cabinets, he found a newspaper from 1951.

And tonight, when Dad arrived and he and Bryan were poking around in the kitchen, they pulled up a piece of flooring in the sink area and found parts of newspaper from 1936. Notice the advertisement for Camels cigarettes, indicating that smoking them helps digestive health. I am so intrigued about the people who lived in this house before us and how different their lives were from ours!

And because I know a lot of you read this because you like to see Jonathan pictures, here are a couple of fun ones. I was a "bad" mother and didn't get any Easter ones of him. But the one where his teeth are brown, that is J-man versus chocolate egg. Needless to say, that little brown egg did not stand a chance!!

Jonathan was with my parents this week in WV so as to allow us (read: Bryan) some time to work in the kitchen. It has been really nice, particularly last night when I stayed up until past 1:00 a.m. watching NCAA basketball (GO CARDS!!) but I will be SO happy to reunite with him tomorrow!!

That is so cool! It's like a little time capsule right in your kitchen! Love the belly picture of Jonathan! What is it with kids and their bellies? They're always showing them off!
