The homestead

Pictures of our house have to be included in our dossier documents for the adoption, to show we can take care of the kids properly, I guess. I thought it might be nice to have them here, recorded for future decades, so we can laugh at how 'dated' our house was waaaay back in 2009.

The living room

Dining room


Boy's room (they will soon be getting an interesting new bed configuration built by dad that will make more space because I mentioned the idea of splitting up the 4 boys, 2 per bedroom room and they acted like I suggested we amputate their right arms.)
Kid's bathroom
Kitchen Kitchen table, nice and clean Kitchen table how it actually looks during school (Not included in the set of paperwork we turned in. Just put here because I'm all about keepin it real for my people. YaknowhatI'msayinmysistas? :) Outdoor play area The clan Haha. These make me laugh. They are the "passport sized" photos we had to take. Dad and Mom. Clooooose up. Blaaaaah!! I hardly ever take pictures of myself, ESPECIALLY alone. So I suppose it's good to have this. You know, to show that I am, in fact, not physically conjoined to children.
Alright, back to the messy kitchen table for more school work now-

Love the homestead! Wondering how you keep the little ones busy enough to keep the house clean for those few minutes of pictures. :o) Seems like my girls love to make messes, as soon as I clean something up. Take care.

You look like 2 upstanding adults of sound mind responsible enough to keep a house clean and neat and 5-7 children cute and happy. I think you've got it in the bag!

Beautiful home! Most definitely will be good enough "proof" of whatever is being looked for! And, I love the furniture (whether it will one day be outdated, or not!)

You have a "Tina Fey" look about you in this picture by yourself!!! Next time I see you, I'm going to ask you for your Sarah Palin impersonation!

You know I love your home--thanks for including the picture during school so I can quit thinking that your house looks like all the other photos all the time. I just can't keep up with that! :)

You guys rock! Cannot wait to meet your new little two. I'm currently more excited to meet your two than I am mine! I just want it to happen soon! Thanks for forging the way!
