Home Sweet Home pt 2

Here is a shot of the upstairs. The hallway has empty picture frames and will display the kids' artwork.
Our bedroom-and Caleb's too, for now-

Our bath-I swore that I wouldn't share this tub with the kids. But, if you see the big yellow baby bath sponge, you'll know that didn't last long...
Avery's bedroom-
Here is the artwork my friend painted for her. She loves it and so do I.

As I noted in yesterday's post-I didn't take all of the pictures ;-)

Caleb's room-he hasn't slept in it yet, but Presley sure likes to play in it, as you can see.
Avery provided the artwork for his room-
Hall cabinet area-

McKenna and Presley's room-front shot-
McKenna's side-check out the flower lights from IKEA-
Presley's side-

Kids bath-
And, I think that's it. I didn't get shots of the back yard, yet. We have a great garden area with a lot of potential. Neither Kevin nor I have green thumbs, so we are trying to decide what to do.
Next on the list-take Avery and McKenna school shopping!

Home Sweet Home

Taking pictures of our house turned out to be a family project. I won't tell you who took each picture, just know they weren't all taken by me. Ok, this house isn't 100% finished, but I've been hounded by some (you know who you are) to get pix up here so, here goes..

the front porch-
This is the foyer area when you first walk into our home...
...And, someday this picture will hang above the table ;-)

This is the front room, includes living and dining room-aka kids toy room and play kitchen.

The office-
Here is the family room, which is right next to the kitchen, which I didn't take any pictures of-yet.
So, that's the downstairs area, minus the laundry room, bathroom and kitchen. Upstairs pics will be posted tomorrow!

If you're in the market for art...

My best friend from my junior high years just opened an Etsy shop. She is extremely talented and full of life. She hasn't changed a bit, since I met her back in 5th grade. Praise God for facebook, and the chance to reconnect.

Her studio is called Pink Moonshine. I just sent her a picture of Avery's bedding and she is going to paint a couple of pieces for her room. I can't wait to see what she does. I'll post pics when everything is complete.

So, if you're ever in the market for art, check out her site. You won't be disappointed.
