Tour of my Palace

I decided to copy Candy and do a tour of my palace. I probably should have waited because I'm about to take all the fall stuff down and do Christmas, but it was all clean and shiny so I went ahead and took pictures today. I'll do a few after I decorate. We've already done the outside lights :)

Here is the living room- it is sort of divided into two areas, the sitting area, and the play area for the girls. I squished the desks over for something else last weekend, but they will be getting moved anyways when we put our tree up.

Living/sitting area:

our TV is on the far left there- another view:

Here is the other side- the kid side I guess. The lighting is weird for some reason.

My kitchen, which is on the other side of the bar with the little TV on it.

The eating area, which I love!

Ok, turning to the right, my laundry closet. Then the pantry.

If you want pantry details, leave a comment and I will go through it for you.

Going back toward the living room, here is our bedroom and bathroom. I didn't get a great picture of the bedroom because I was sorting laundry on the floor :) I may re do this picture though, the bedroom is much prettier than this- we have actual furniture and art on the walls from another view.

Head back through the living area to the girls' rooms. The left is Leiah's room, our 5 year old who goes to public school in the special ed program. Yes, her quilt is finished and on the bed!

Next on the right is the bathroom- nothing to shout about it, but the shower is nice and big.

And the next room is Alexa and Sarah's room, ages 4 and 2. I just rearranged it and I really like it a lot. I moved all the toys to the bedrooms which makes the living area a bit neater. A lot of it is stashed in their closet, organized of course :)

There is a toy box on the left but I couldn't get in the picture.

Anyways, that's it. Sometimes it feels small, but for the most part it's a great size for our family. As long as I keep it decluttered. Life has been so busy the last couple of weeks I just now really got it cleaned good and got rid of some junk.

Your home is just beautiful! I love love love your kitchen.

I too have one room in my house that has a heat/air ven smack dab in the middle of the floor. I have tried to make it less noticible, but have never been successful. Why do they do that?

You're house is just beautiful. My favorite room is your kitchen....but I like your bathroom really well too.
You are blessed.

I loved your house! My house always feels so tight and cramped (which is justified, since its tiny) but you seem to use your home's space very well. I liked the split living room idea. We have done that before when we had a large living room.

Thanks for the reminder to get up and start cleaning my house!

You have set up such a lovely home for your family and very neat too. I can't wait to see your home in MI. I live in Southwestern MI and we have about 4 inches of snow on the ground right now. You probably don't want to know how much the UP has already. :-) Blessings...kelly
