Sunday Lunch with Family and Friends

Yesterday, we went to lunch at my parents’ house.  My sister and her husband and another family from church came, too.  :)  We had a delightful afternoon of food and fellowship while the kids played.

Around the table.  Food was YUMMY! (Yes, I am holding a baby… Surprise, surprise… I love babies, but feel a special connection to little Justus as I was Lauren’s doula during the nighttime hours of her labor.)image

Erin being her usual, happy self.  :)

Developmentally, Lydia, Patrick and Erin are more into playing near each other rather than with each other.  It is a lot of fun to watch.  (Those toys were mine when I was little.  )

And just for fun, a pic of Erin and me from a previous recent visit at my parents’ house.

More Fun With Gramma

My mom regularly keeps Patrick and Erin so I can run errands or do some things around the house.  Mom kept the kids a lot during our transition from the old home to our new home.  Here are some photos of their time spent at Gramma’s.

A few photos of our new home…

Daniel and I have been richly blessed with the opportunity to buy a new house.  Though we loved our other house, we were quickly outgrowing it’s space.  Two bedrooms was simply too small.

Last weekend, we moved into our new home.  Here are a few photos of the house.  More will come later.

View from just inside the front door.

Kitchen…

Built in eating space adjacent to the kitchen. I LOVE the blue in there. :)

Master bedroom taken from the door.  The picture really doesn’t do the room justice as it is quite a bit larger than it appears.  We love the windows in here and throughout the rest of the house as it provides a great deal of natural light throughout the day.

Living room.  The previous owners put up a textured paper and painted over it.  This is a very beautiful, unique feature of the house.  We LOVE the fireplace.  :)
