A Peek into The Crazy Crowded House

My house was not always so crowded, nor was it so crazy. There was a time when children were in diapers and fairly quiet. There was a time when we thought this house would never be too small. There was a time we could actually get away from the children. None of these statements are true any more. The one constant is that despite it all I love my house, my home and I will miss it terribly. We have had many fond memories here, many of which I will post over the next few days and weeks. All my kids came home from the hospital to this house. We worked hard to to make our home what it is. We hope that the next family enjoys it as much as we have. They will be stopping by today, as a matter of fact, so that the little girls will be able to have a look at their new home. My kids are under strinct instruction to keep everything super tidy, at least until the afternoon. Following are some pictures of our home which appeared on the sales brochure.

The back deck…

a view of the swingset
Dining Room more of a French influence than a Connecticut Country charm

Our Living Room used most frequently in the wintertime for her fire place… used more and more these days as a Mommy Escape Room as No Kids Are Allowed!

Family Room which has been destroyed and devastated by the children… looks pretty good in this photograph though!

Downstairs bathroom that Don decided to renovate all by himself! He was so proud… only took him a year and a half to do it!

Office-Slash-Guest room… it’s usually a mess and piled high with bills from Banana Republic or JCrew or GapKids… No one dares to stay with us anymore so Rebecca is getting the bed!
Master bedroom. My sanctuary and probably the room I will miss the most.
Master Bath… too small, love the decor but will welcome a larger master bath.
Rebecca’s room. What more can I say, she is a girly girl!
Christopher’s room. He loves it and wants to replicate it at the New House… we will honor his wishes. Hopefully I can locate the extra airplanes for the walls!

Lastly, the nursery which no longer looks like this and has been transformed by PBK’s Fire Truck bedding and motif.

Thanks for looking! And my appologies for the convoluted way the pictures appear on the page… I can’t seem to correct them!
