Here are some pictures of our house in the USA. Phillip has worked un-told HOURS on our house. We have replaced all electricity, all plumbing, added 2 more bathrooms, tore out plaster, built some new walls, and replaced some rotten floors, put in insulation, we paid for new dry wall, etc.
Late Thanksgiving night our family was heading back from my parents house and decided to "camp out" in our home that night. So, we bundled up (there was no heat yet), all slept in one room on the 3rd floor, used a space heater, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. On "Black Friday" we all worked, and decorated a tad for Christmas to help our hearts. ~Noah and Elijah.~
~Sarah, and Kimberly~
~Mary slept in our guest bed with Phillip and I.~
~Then we all stayed bundled up and the Hausmans came over and helped us and we scrubbed the banister downstairs, the walls, the door, etc.~
~Bryan, Darla, Noah, and Sarah helping scrub.~
~Elijah, Bryan, and Noah helping carry boards.~
~Then the Friday a week before Christmas Laura and I carried our decorated Christmas tree upstairs...so that the dry wallers could dry wall our downstairs.~
~Natasha taking out nails so the dry wallers could drywall.~
~Kimberly and Brittany carrying door frames, etc. downstairs.~
~Elijah climbing the ladder trying to help in our dinning room! =)~
The Monday after Christmas our dear friends the Shirks came and worked day and night for 5 days helping us on our house. Those pics are coming soon.
