Welcome to Our Home

I'm so excited to finally be ready to show you the pictures of our new home.  Let me begin by telling you, that it's important to me that you know how BLESSED we are!  God has been blessing our socks off and we are truly amazed at all He has done for us.  The verse of scripture that God gave to me when we first began thinking of pursuing this house was Isaiah 43:18-24 which says:

18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21 the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.

God has truly done an amazing thing and I must thank Him and PROCLAIM HIS PRAISE for all the mighty things He has done.  He gave us this house and answered our prayers so that we would give Him the honor, Him the glory, and Him the praise.  So, that's what I intend to do.

Come in!  Enjoy the tour of our home.  See what God has done!!
Upon entering the house, you step right into the entry hall.  Immediately to the right is the formal dining room with the living room straight ahead.

This is the entry hall.  The hallway to the right goes into the kids' rooms.

This is the formal dining room.  It will remain empty for now.  I'll be on the lookout for some dining room furniture.

This is the living room.  I love the tall ceilings and windows!

On your way out of the living room, these doors lead to the kitchen nook.

This gives you the view from the double doors that lead into the kitchen nook.  The hallway behind the blue chair leads into the laundry room and master bedroom.

This is the kitchen nook or breakfast area. 

And THIS is my KITCHEN!  I LOVE the kitchen!!!  It's so open and big!  I have tons of cabinet space and tons of light!!!

Another view of the kitchen.  LOVE the island!!!  The countertops are corian and I am in love with the stained cabinets!!

Another view of the kitchen.  The hallway to the right leads to the guest bathroom and my office!!

I just love all the windows in this house!  Tons of light!!!

This room is the hearth room or family room.  It is located right off the nook.  We'll play games in here and watch tv together.

Coming out of the family room, this is the kitchen nook.
 
On your way to the kid's rooms, you'll see this area by the front door.

Mallory's room

She has a BIG window that lets in tons of light!

The kids share this "jack and jill" bath.  I have always wanted a bathroom connected between two bedrooms like this one!  I haven't put any decorations in here yet.  It's still a work in progress.

Jack was asleep when I took pictures, so I'll have to show you his room later.  :-)

This is my laundry room.  It has TONS of cabinets and even a sink!!!

Our master bedroom... love the tall step-up ceiling and additional sitting area!

I hung the "Names of Jesus" quilt my mom made me in here.  I just love this quilt - it's my all-time favorite!!

The sitting area is such a bonus!!!

I have my wedding dress displayed here, as well as the wedding memory quilt my mom made for me.

And, this is our master bathroom!  We absolutely love all the space in here!!

And, my office is still a work in progress, so I'll show it to you later, BUT here's a sneak peak at the CLOSET in my office!!!  LOVE all the storage space!!!

We just love it here!!!  Thanks for stopping by!  I plan to put out some spring decorations next week!  I'll be sure to post pictures.  Come back soon!!  :-)
