The first of the new appliances to arrive was the refrigerator. I was so excited! I happily said "good-bye" to the old almond 20cf Amana with the the door shelves held on by duct tape and packing tape.
And said "hello" to a 25cf Kenmore Elite French-door, bottom freezer with exterior ice and water dispenser.
We had to wait an extra day for Austin to return from his business trip in order to get the water line hooked up. Then we had to have some lessons in the proper way to dispense ice & water and how to use a towel to mop up the inevitable spillage on the floor. ;o) The kids were in heaven. Crushed ice with water was all the rave.
