The New House

 OK, so I thought I could copy and paste a picture...but it didn't work!  I will have to take my fanny over there and take a pic with my own camera...oh, well I tried!

Family

"Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbor. Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes.
Mother Theresa

 
I just saw this quote on Pink and Polka Dot's blog and WOW...it really hit home.  I WANT my kids to love their home and being with their family...I think that's why God gave me girls. 
You know the old saying..."You have a daughter, she's your daughter for life, your son's your son until he takes a wife." 
OK, so that might not be the exact quote, but it's something like that. 
 I love my girls and I've always been a proponent of spending time with my family. 
 Even as a kid I liked spending time with family.
I want my girls to feel the same way about their family and their home!
 
Our move date is approaching, I've ordered the carpet and scheduled the movers...
I'm ready to make this new house our HOME.
 
Pictures soon I promise!

There Is An End In Sight - Sort Of...

Well, it's a month later than planned, but we will finally close on our new/old house on January 28th!!! 
I can stop sitting on my hands dreaming of what needs to be done and I can start getting it done...  T and I did go look at it again and man is there a LOT to do, but I'm really excited and while living with my mom has been fine, we are ready for our own space again!!!  Besides, I'm tired of
scraping my car windows in the mornings. 

I am planning to post pictures...but it's amazing how not having your own space, computer,
routine...makes the smallest tasks difficult.
