Open House

Wow!  It has been a LONG time since I have been on here!  In fact, I was told 2 months!  It has been a full, busy, exciting two months with welcoming a new baby, VBS, preparing for school and preparing a room for our visitors from America (who just arrived TODAY!!! YAY!!!)...it will take me a while to update you on all of that.  I will, but I thought since I have been promising a home tour for a year to my family and we are welcoming visitors into our home now, I would let you come for a visit too.

As we open the door you'll be greeted by this sight with a bench inviting you to sit down and take your shoes off...plus about 4 excited kids hopping about with books for you to read, favorite toys for you to see, new lost teeth....we like visitors.

Once you are able to get past them and take your shoes off, we will make our way into the kitchen.
Where we would probably stop to grab a cup of tea or coffee, if you prefer
While the water gets hot, we will take a peek into the boys' room then pick up our cups of tea (or coffee) and head to the living room.

If they were sleeping this peacefully when you came in, then it was pretty easy to get your shoes off.

In the living room you can see our precious Abigail who never lacks in arms wanting to hold her and is always surrounded by adoring brothers and sisters.  She is one spoiled little girl...or maybe it is loved.

Make a quick stop at the bathroom.

Then make our way to the girls' room,

It still needs some order, but if I waited until every room was perfect to have visitors I'd never have visitors.  Before you leave I'm sure the kids will convince you to cuddle and read a book or two.

God has blessed me greatly with a beautiful, little home and a sweet family to enjoy it with.  I hope you had a pleasant visit and will come again.  The door is always open - even when there is some laundry on the couch, which is usually the time when company pops in. :)


  1. Thanks for the tour! I LOVED it!!! You have your home set up and decorated so cozy and inviting.
    Sounds like you are staying busy and I look forward to hearing about it.
    Enjoy your company!
    I've wanted to give a tour on my blog as well - you inspired me to get to that soon.

  2. I love it! Do you have another bedroom, or do you sleep in the living room?

    I hope to post a home tour soon, too, once we get some of these boxes and bags put away. Or maybe not so soon. For the first time ever, we're living in a house! Well, half a house. It's incredible.

  3. YAY! Welcome back! You have been VERY missed. Congratulations on the birth of Abigail ... can't wait to see pictures of your sweet little ones together (hint, hint). It was fun touring your house :).
