We took a leap...

We had a "last dinner" at our Christine house. We had hibachi. That is where we put the griddle on the table and veggies & raw meat (hot dog's included) and we all cook it ourselves. We like it because it is the one time that the kids sit around and talk instead of just eating and leaving. It is also the one time no one complains about what is for dinner. Just in case you need some is what we have: sweet onions (this is a must!), pineapple, chicken, steak, ham, Br. Poulson's secret blend of spices and of course hot dogs. Served on rice.We have lived in this house for 11 years. It is the only house Kassidy & Kelsie have ever known. We have really enjoyed it but the time has come to move. We needed more space and the right oppurtunity came along...and we took a giant leap. We went from this...

to this.

Welcome to our new kitchen. We can all stand in it and not be squished.

My parents came up on Conference weekend and helped me decorate. My mom has such a good eye. I love it.

This is the family room that opens into the kitchen. This is the "teenage mecca."

My mom picked out the fabric for the quilt and Ally & I helped her sew it together. Isn't it perfect for the media room?

We are excited to make new memories here. You are all welcome to come watch a movie, play someone in pool or just visit. Don't be strangers, visitors are always welcome.


  1. Wow Mindy, Congratulations on your fabulous new home. That is a great change. After all those years, you've got to be thrilled. I'd love to have your new address.

  2. This is beautiful! I'm so glad you posted these on the blog--I should have checked here sooner. Hope to see it in person this summer :)

  3. I haven't checked on my blogger buddies for forever but after women's conference when you said you posted pix I had to get back on the band wagon. Your house looks amazing! You have a theater room?!? And enough room for a pool table? That is just plain awesome! We are planning on coming to visit after "Wicked" Saturday but don't worry about feeding us. Emily said you are having a big family get together Friday night so we are going to take out our girls Saturday. Can't wait to see you!
