Tour Our New Home: Part 1

This is the view from our front porch.
Our Yellow Home- Look at all of the boxes piled up. We are getting rid of them on Craigslist. They came here with us from Indiana, and now they are going with an airforce man and his family to Maryland.

The signs that will welcome you as you walk up the steps.
Our chair and sign that greet you as you knock on the door.

Knock! Knock! Come on in!

The view from the front door.

Immediately to your right as you walk in the door is our computer area.

The view if you turn around in our computer chair. Please, ignore the clutter on top of the curio cabinet. I will get to it soon.

Right side of the living room

Left side of the living room

Dining room- my sign above the mirror says, "Friends and Family Gather Here."
Dining room

Kitchen- The little signs hanging up have sayings like "Faith, Family, Friends" ; "Live, Laugh, Love" ; "Simplify" ; "Believe" ; etc...

The plate says, "Family Matters."

I don't have a window above my kitchen sink, so I put this wall application above it. I found it at the Dollar Tree.
The back foyer off of the kitchen.

The view in our house from the back door and foyer. Immediately to your left is a door that leads to the laundry room. Then you go through the laundry room to the garage. I hung my dry erase board in here. I recommend one for busy moms and families. I use it to jot down things I need from the store, the menu, phone numbers, etc...

This is our hallway off of the kitchen. It is in between the buffet table and the little kids table in the kitchen pictures above. This hall leads to the kids' rooms and a bathroom. The little hall off to the right that you see goes to the boys' room. On the left directly across from that is the bathroom. At the end of the hall is Abbie's room on the right and Chloe's room on the left. I will leave you hanging there. I have to finish unpacking and decorating the kids' rooms and our room. I will post pics of those when I am finished.

I love it! You have done a great job, and made lots of progress. If your like me....remember, it doesn't all have to be done "yesterday". I think we might have been to your church on deputation. I have to ask my hubby??? They do not support us, but we still send letter....I think??? I'll ask him.

I adore your yellow house! Everything about it is wonderful.
I pray the church is very good to you all. May God Bless you.
