This is the first picture of Rebecca actually smiling. It was at her daddy. She was loving him that night.Our beautiful little girl. She wasn't quite in the mood for smiling when mom threw this photo session on her. She is still a photogenic baby though.


There's No Place Like Home

This is the front of our house. The first order of business was to paint the door black. The neighbors greatly appreciate what we have done.

This is our living room with our new couches. It was a total steal of a deal at a yard sale of all places.

This is my music room. My favorite room in the house. It was so nice to have all of my music and supplies in one place. This is the first year I have taught piano at my own home. I have 13 great students currently.

Our kitchen. The girl that owned the home before us loved paint colors. She didn't always choose what I would have, but we will have to gradually change the colors. She painted the cupboards black and the walls lime green. It is fun for now, but will eventually go.

Rebecca's Nursery. This is my favorite decorated room of the house, and we have even bigger plans to come. Nana gave her the cutest crib set and we have decorated around it. Eventually we will replace the dark aqua green carpet and paint the walls. Until then, we will just enjoy the decorations.Another view of the nursery.

The kids bedroom. We currently have the three oldest kids in one room downstairs. That allows us to have a toy room and an office. The kids love it and we love having the extra space. Ryan and Makayla were especially excited to get a bunkbed. Ashlyn thinks she is the biggest girl ever in her toddler bed.
Moving in day. Becca helping the best way she sleeping. Brad and I were able to get everything unpacked in 2 days....just before we left to California for a week. I was super exhausted but relieved to have it done.

This is one view of our office. It is kind of a weird place. I actually have my own craft corner by the card table. It has shelves and places for me to work and keep all of my stuff. It is AWESOME!!! Maybe I will attempt to be domestic.

Ashlyn trying to pick our one pear from our pear tree. We have a very big, nice fully fenced back yard. That was one of the selling points for me.
