My camera has decided to die, otherwise, I'd post photos of our new home!!  Yeah!!!  We FINALLY closed yesterday!!  We were supposed to close Aug 31st! 

Thankfully, we're already in the house.  I have a lot to do now though that we're finally official.  I have about ten boxes of crafts and school room stuff that I didn't want to unpack until I knew we were closing for sure.   I had to buy some more shelves to hold all the stuff and I'm sure it won't be enough.  The books have already been unloaded onto the shelves but need to be more organized.  I do have all of history and science together, but thats the extent of the organization.

I'm also in a rush to get some painting done.  Let's face it, it gets cold here in Minnesota and soon!!  I started painting the little girls room tonight.  Their room is about 9x12 but then has a smaller room attached (about 7x8) with shelves built into the other end.  Perfect little play room for them.  Anyway, I'm painting their main room a light purple and the other room a light pink.  Don't be too impressed, I got the idea from a painting brochure at Home Depot.  It looks like it will be really cute.  I'm excited for them.

The big girls have picked two really bold and dark colors for their room.  I'd love to steer them to a lighter something, but it is the first time in their lives that they've been able to have color and not just white walls. 

TL likes his wallpaper and duck border in his room.

The upstairs bath needs to have the flower wall paper removed and get painted.  Its not to big so it shouldn't take too long.

I'd also like to do the dining room before snow falls.  I have to remove the wallpaper there and then paint. 

This of course, with all the regular day to day stuff plus raking leaves from about thirty trees and starting to clean out the barns......we should be busy for a while!!

Take care everyone!!  Have a blessed weekend!


  1. Your place sounds so exciting and beautiful. I love the pictures I saw earlier. So sorry to hear about hubby's schedule. I know God will see you through it. Don't over work yourself, but have fun making the place yours. Best wishes. Jane

  2. So happy to hear that you were able to close.
    Yes, you will be busy for a long time making it your home. I'm sure organizing the books would be a great project for a snowy winter day :)
    We haven't even begun to paint anything. Thankfully, the colors that are here are pretty good, but it is not a good scrubbable paint. Something to consider when you go to purchase your paint is how well you can clean the walls later.

    Happy painting!
