Our Home

The Living room. One end has the boys toys (notice that the amount of toys they own doubled after Sonya brought the Mega blocks!). It is also our little preschool with colors and the alphabet.


Our bedroom. This is the shelf above our bed. My grandma helped me arrange things. She also made the tablecloth on the left and the bears. The bears were all made by my grandma also. They are made from old clothes of my moms. The one has a blue bow that I wore for homecoming one year. Isaiah got a bear for Christmas, but his isn't up there.
On the left you will see where all the blogging magic happens. My father in law made the quilt rack for me. My favorite quilt is in the front. My mom made it for me when I graduated from high school. All of my friends did a square of memories. The quilt on our bed was made by Tim's great aunt.



Matthew took the pictures on the left. They are of Isaiah's hand, ear and foot. I think they are from the week he was born. I love the view out our bedroom doors! My grandma made the stocking on the door handle. Tim's grandpa made the hutch in our dining room. I am so proud of my decorating by having the doilies half hang off the shelf. It's one of the few things I've done that I like. Amanda made the angel on the front. I also like my laundry sign about the washer and dryer.


Our bathroom. My brother put in this bathroom for us while we were on vacation. His friend made the stained glass window. It was Matthew's idea to put the lights around the top. It's nice at night when you don't want to turn on a really bright light. It was originally painted blue, but I painted it the purple color. Matthew made the vanity.



I may add pictures of the kitchen in a little bit.

If anyone zoomed in on the picture of the shelf in our bedroom, the picture on the left hand side is of my great grandma "Lura".

You know the "romantic lighting" in the bathroom is one of my favorite things about your house!!!! Where are the pictures of under your couch? ha ha

First of all, how do you get thta many pictures in one post? Mine will only let me put up like 5 at a time!
I love the purple paint. Have I seen that? Of course you know I love the stained glass window! The pictures of Isaiah are adorable - I know I haven't seen those yet. Your bedroom is the best room in the house, I think! Well, except for the cool lights in the bathroom! Can you imagine what Grandma and Grandpa would say if they saw their house now? haha! With all the toys and baby stuff all over. I love the school room area in the living room! Very nice!

Upload your five pictures, and then put your curser below them and click to add pictures again. Then you can do five more.

The stained glass window in the bathroom is really cool. I'm a little bit jealous
