Then and Now.

Six years ago, Drew and I signed the papers on our house and officially became homeowners.

It's amazing to me to think about how much has changed over that time..

To the house, Drew has totally fixed up the lawn (it had been foreclosed on and was empty for almost a year) and we have laid sod in a few areas. We've added in flower beds. We have planted three trees.

To the inside, we have added much more furniture.. we didn't have *anything* for our front room when we first moved in. Drew has built and finished a fourth bedroom. I have acquired wonderful items from my grandma (piano and china hutch). There are many more beds.. which happens when you go from one child to four. ;o) And my how my taste has changed in decorations... lol

I've also been thinking about how much clutter I have (for those that have been in my house, you can stop laughing now. I mean it. NOW!). Ok, I think about it a lot anyway and how I wish I had the time/motivation to do a mass de-clutter. I have stuff that hasn't been used in years. YEARS. So why do I have it?? Time to start parting with that stuff.

And just for fun.. here are two pictures of Aubrey from around that time. "Back Then" we only had a camera with film and so we would use our camcorder to take still pictures (I'm explaining the poor quality). lol

Maybe we can have a challenge??? - have a weekly assignment and see how we do??? anyone up for that - I will work on setting up a schedule....lol (I will let you know when I get to that....ha ha ha.
