Tour of the New House, pt. 4

As promised. Welcome to our home! The windows you see lead to the livingroom. The big tree is some kind of maple.

I don't know why, but the numbers for the house address are the same red as the trim on the house. The light was a bit funny when I took these. I love love love the double doors. :)

The pear tree in the front yard... can't wait for these to get ripe!

And now here's the back yard, starting with the deck. I like to have my devotions out here while Caleb plays in the yard below.

A sliding glass door leads from the deck into the dining area.

The back yard . . . Caleb's frontier.

One of the big pine trees in the back yard:

This is Caleb's stump. It was in one piece when we moved in; Caleb decided it would serve much better as a scratching post. Now the stump is about 2/3 the size it used to be. And whenever he goes outside, he points to it and says "Sump sump!" He knows it's his. Oh yes he does.

For good measure, here's our bedroom. It's upstairs and right next door to Caleb's. Since I took these photos, I managed to put curtains up. Just so's ya know. I do actually own curtains. I do actually use them. :) I know you guys were worried about that.

We acquired this dresser from John and Kim when we moved. I love the extra space. And the big huge mirror. :)

Well, there's more of the house. Now for Caleb's room, the den, the livingroom, and the Guest Room. Hmmm, I'd better get on the ball, huh? Those pics will be coming soon. All four are coming along real nicely. Especially the guest room. :)
Until next time
