There's No Place Like Home.........

I can't believe we have been here a month already!

With everything going on and trying to get settled in the month just flew by!

We only have this left of our Halloween candy....

We have been busy celebrating all the November birthday's in our family...We also have our Anniversary then comes Thanksgiving.

The family keeps throwing me hints on having Thanksgiving at our house this no! ha! I'm just not ready! Maybe Christmas????

We live pretty close to Oak Glen. We enjoyed a picnic up there the other day....

and gave thanks to all that God is blessing us with!

We are busy getting settled. I should have this moving thing down but I don't!

My Mom and Grandparents came over to help organize closets etc....

I think I over worked my Grandpa with all the girls clothes!

The girls room....we still need to paint and hang some things...
I love our house but I don't love the cleaning! It was so much easier keeping an RV clean. It only took me about 10min to clean the whole "house."

Now, I seem to be cleaning all day and night!

With wood floors.......ugh!

At least I have my Swiffer partner to help me tackle all those dust bunnies:)

Our school room is getting there!

We are still looking for desks.

We need to paint and finish hanging things too.

We have 3 other walls that look busy like this too! I'll share more pictures when I'm done:)

We have been doing a lot of cooking in school too!

The school room in right next to the kitchen, makes it nice!

We spend a lot of time in our PJ's too! ha!
Austin and Faith had a cooking contest.
They had to follow the directions from start to finish all by themselves.
Including clean up.

Then we brought the judges in....

Who's taste better?

We spend a lot of time in costumes too! ha!

Well it's past 1:00 and we are still in our PJ's! I guess we better get dressed before Daddy gets home. See you soon!

Everything looks like it's coming together wonderfully! Congratulations. I can so relate to the wood floors, it's never ending and trying to make them shiny is a tough one two, we have 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 kids, lol.
Have a great week.

Can't wait to see more pics of the school room. We are in the process of changing things up in our school room and I could use some inspiration. By the way, we spend a large portion of our day in PJs too!

I can relate to the cleaning thing. When we went on vacation this Summer for five weeks I was loving the housekeeping part of it. I did not even miss the dishwasher. Our space was so small you could get it all done really quick and dishes had to be done before you did the next thing, so the dishes stayed done.

But it is still nice to have a place to call home. Good to know we can live without if we have to, though.

Looks great... and my advice is to stay in those PJs and dress up clothes as much as you can!

Oh, Bridget! That picture with your grandpa and the girls clothing had me in hysterical stitches!!!! Can't wait to come for a visit....HINT, HINT, HINT!!!! And don't worry, we find ourselves in pjs all day, many, many days!

BARBIE said...

AWESOME! The jammie and costume part looks like our house. I'm daily saying "Oh my gosh it's afternoon y'all really need to get dressed". I love the cooking contest idea, I'm so going to steal that. Everything looks like it's coming together nicely over there! Good luck with the rest of the moving in!

Sophie said...

Your family is way too cute!! So is that picture of grandpa, heehee!

Mariel said...

Your house is beautiful and it looks like everyone is settling in great! I have to ask......where did you get the little pink appliances in your girls room? I would love to get some like that for my daughter!

Rossie said...
