Home Sweet Home

As promised... Our House!  (and a few extra things...)

I start with the first... Here are some photos from Tres' graduation party before we left.
So excited for Tres to graduate.  Amy (his oldest sister) was thrilled to be able to hood him!

 Big thanks to our friend Brandon who helped me with all the labels for the party!
Check out the brain cubes we were popping weeks in advance.

 The stethoscope on the top was a gift from me and my entire family for his graduation.  His mom gave him a beautiful leather doctor's bad that I don't have a picture of him with.
 This is the first time he had seen the cake.  The doctor's bag first aid kit was from Ryker... very fitting I thought.

 My mom found this shirt at Penny's and thought it would be perfect for the occasion.
Alright.  Now for the House.
The bar's a little messy but here's the back living room.  The view out the window is the backyard.
 One side of the fire place.

 Notice my cute cookie jar... it actually has cookies in it! 
My family left us messages before they left for Oklahoma.

 On the other side of the kitchen. 
 View from the other end of the room.
 You can partially see the other side of the fireplace. 
 I guess you would call this our "formal" living room.  I wouldn't really say anything is too formal in our house though.

 Here's my Aunt Claudia's favorite piece of furniture in our house. 
 Guest/Ryker's bathroom. 

 Ryker's room!
 The only thing lacking in his room are curtains, which I am in the process of trying to figure out.
Any suggestions?

I left off our bedroom and bathroom because it is far from finished.  It's extremely plain right now.  I will post about it after I get working on it.

Well there's lots of pictures.  Hope you enjoy!!
What's going on with you??

  2. We went to lunch today and you guys weren't there...I think it's finally sinking in that you aren't coming back :(

  3. If you don't come up with anything then we can do curtains when I come to visit in a couple of months! I like your slip cover. did you buy pillows too? Take a picture of that so I can see it better!
