Sneak Peek...

My mom is begging for a sneak peek. So I am taking a MUCH needed 15 minute break to give her (and you) one.
Abby's room is too cute. It makes me happy. She loves it too!

The guest room makes me smile too. I love the colors. Not finished... sneak peek, remember?

Our room is like a gym to us! We just walk in and smile. Then we sprint back and forth for a small work out.

And this sitting area off to the side is such a bonus... I have great plans!

Master Bath: I know you all are going to want to run out and get this wall paper! It can't get it torn down fast enough... seriously... walking through gives you a headache!

The living room open to the kitchen was one of our favorite parts when we looked at the house, although we have about 50 favorites now.

The kitchen... remember... sneak peek!

And lastly... my precious one with poison ivy all over her face... such sadness.

We were VERY blessed to have great help for our move. It was a hard one. It rained. It's still raining. NOTHING was broken! NO ONE was hurt. Don did get bitten by something and his leg swelled up badly. And of course Abby found some poison ivy somewhere. But other than that and MANY aching muscles... we are here. We are giddy with delight at the house God has blessed us with. Just being in the open spaces with higher ceilings makes us feel different! Don't the Chinese have a term for that!?

Our social worker came out today and did our interview and home tour. She'll have it to us tomorrow. We are "supposed" to head to Florida on Monday now and get Marc on Tuesday evening. Prayers are much appreciated.

I'll be back with more highlights and details. Much love...

OH!!!!! Much love and a shout out to our friends, Jamie and Donna, who brought us over TWO meals tonight! Chicken Parmesean, penne pasta, fresh salad, fruit salad, shredded chicken stuffed bell peppers with rice and home made chocolate chip cookies! It was a HUGE blessing and the PERFECT house warming gift during this busy and crazy time. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

And* So sorry I missed you all Candi... got your message this morning on my cell phone! My brain was dead and very full and we were cleaning the old house until Monday morning. Come back now! Or soon... we owe you!!!! Love you.
