A Tour

 I thought I would post some pictures of our new home.  This is the home I grew up in.  My parents moved in when I was 6 months old.  I moved out when I was 22 years old when I got married.  Now at 28 I'm back with my family.  And it really feels good.  It feels like my home, but not the home I grew up in.  There are special things that still feel like my parents.  Like the dining room table and the hutch in the corner.  When I look at that hutch I think of my mom.  In it I have displayed some of my moms Polish Pottery that she loves so much.  And on the top is my Great grandmas tea set and platters.  I love that set because it's colorful and very feminine.
 So here is the homeschool room/play room that is right off of the kitchen. The kids have a big table for crafts and coloring in here.  They also have all their toys and play kitchen in here.
 Here is the kitchen.
 And a look back into the homeschool/play room.
 Leaving the kitchen we head into the dining room.
 Off of the dining room is our living room
 Here is my desk, where I blog from.  I used to do this in our kitchen at the counter.  Now I have a nice place for my laptop. 
 Here is a view in the hall looking down towards the living room.
First door on my left is Mark's office, next to that is one of 2 hall closets.  First door on the right is the bathroom and the door with the mirror is our laundry room.  The kids room and master and another closet aren't shown.
 Here is the view from the hall.  Our entry is on the right with the rug.

You have made your childhood home into a special home for you and your family! I think it is so neat that you have the memories from your childhood and are building new memories now with your blessed family! Both are treasures!
Your home is beautiful!
