Welcome to my blog and my new house.

Hey all, I am new to this blogging thing, so bear with me.  I can upload our family Christmas pics as soon as I figure out how to do that.  We took them last Tues. along the river here in Rockford.  Very nice.  

I was busy today trying to get my homeschooling room in order...we've been in our new house 5 weeks and it still is a mess, though is looking a lot better.   The Lord has really blessed us with this house...5 bedrooms, 1 of which is our school room, which is soo nice.  Now the school mess won't be all over the house...and it is upstairs, which helps with mess, too.  We have ripped up carpeting in the LR, the Library and the hallway.  Nice hardwood underneath, which we much prefer.  We've also torn down wallpaper in the LR and started with that in the DR.  There is a TON of ugly wallpaper in this house, in pretty much EVERY room, which we will slowly but surely take down.  I will also upload pics of our house along with the Christmas pics soon.  

That is all for now, I should help my dear hubby get the kids in bed.  Soon I will post about our crazy life this past 6 months and the journey God has brought us on.  One thing I have come to realize...when you REALLY give your life over to God's will, it will be a wild ride!!

Wallpaper--yuck. Do you know the liquid fabric softener trick for taking it down easier?
