Things are getting exciting!

It is difficult for me to imagine a space from floor plans only. I am overjoyed as I watch our barn house come to life. It is going to be just perfect.

There is a lot of joy on these faces. It was the first time they got to see their rooms framed up. They could look out their windows and dream about what is to come.

Underground Salt Museum

We had a fun adventure today!

Papa and Grandma (EJ's folks) gave us passes to the Underground Salt Museum as a Christmas gift.

You have to be 4 or older to go down in the salt mine so only 3 of our kiddos could go. Papa and Grandma took Miss Ruthie and the babies to the park to play while we went on our adventure.

We look legit in our hard hats!

Fascinating movie paraphernalia is stored down there.

Our super hero loving fellas enjoyed this part of the tour!

We met up with some precious 
family friends for dinner afterwards.

The Ground Breaking

It's really happening!!!

This man's boyhood dreams are becoming reality.

I am so thrilled to be on this adventure with him.

 These precious children were watching 
the ground breaking from the warm van.

We had to take a family picture 
to mark this momentous occasion.

Papa and Grandma got in on the fun too!  
This is Grandma's family land.

House Tour

The growing table family is saying goodbye.

It is time to sell our beautiful home in preparation for our move to the barn house.

This home has been such a blessing to us.

I remember the first time I walked through the front door.

I was in love.

EJ was out of state on business.

We made an offer on the house before he even saw it.

How is that for trust?

We grew from a family of 5 to a family of 8 in this house.

Precious memories.
