Kristy's Request














Here are more pictures of our life here - Kristy begged, so here they are. Abbey loves her room, especially having her own bathroom. Our bedroom here is three times as big as the one we have in Bountiful. The whole house is way too big for a family of three, but that is how it goes here. We have four full baths and one half bath. There are four bedrooms, one a maid's quarters off the kitchen that we use for the ironing room. The stackable washer and dryer are in the kitchen and not quite up to the standard of the beautiful Kenmore set I have at home. There are no garbage disposals here, so it feels like the Stone Age, but our dishwasher is sparkly wonderful. The tile work is amazing - the kitchen and bathrooms are floor to ceiling tile, because it is cheaper to tile the walls than it is to put dry wall up. And there are nine foot ceilings! The whole house is made of cement, so the walls are not easily decorated. Brett wants to paint, but we will see. Abbey still thinks our home here is"weird," but we are slowly getting used to it. If any of you come to our neck of the woods, you are welcome to stay, because as you can see, we have plenty of room!

Wow, quite a difference from Bountiful, huh? It looks like you guys are doing well! I am surprised that you have such a large place, there and I am more surprised that everything is BROWN!!!! We miss you!

I was a little surprised at the lack of color, too. However, I think we tend to pull into our homes the colors that surround us outside. The home is lovely and HUGE! Wow, it's really something. I would have loved to have my own bathroom at seven, too! Abbey makes a lovely floor model, too!
