Our New House

This post is going to be primarily pictures.  And I must say that ALL decorating and furniture, etc was already in the house when we got here.  Our stuff still hasn't even made it out here yet.  But for a brief explanation of where we are living now:  Sylacauga, Alabama is our new home.  Stephen grew up in this small town outside of Birmingham and it is full of Southern hospitality and small town friendships - the kind where everyone knows everyone else and their entire life's history.  His family is here and it's where he lived from the time he was born until he left for college.  We are living here while he finishes seminary at the New Orleans extension in Birmingham.  We are living in his grandparents' house, which has been unoccupied for the last 7 or so years.  Stephen's uncle and mom have worked hard renovating it over the last 3 years, and we are now getting to reap the benefits in this beautifully redone and redecorated, furnished, HUGE, southern house.  We are SOOOO thankful for this blessing in our lives and hope to spend our time here building relationships that edify and point people to the Lord.  Ok, now for some pictures!

We've gone from here:

To here:
Look, there's me!

And there's my car in the driveway!
This is one of our favorite rooms:

And there's a whole lot more...that was only 1 of the 4 bedrooms, but that's all the pics I have at the moment.  Didn't Stephen's mom do a great job decorating the house!?!
