Old and New

This was Isabelle's nursery when she was a baby.
She never slept in here!
See the painted chest of drawers?
We found it at an antique or second hand shop and
Mimi painted it for her!

Isabelle is now 8 years old and needed a new look for her room.
So, Brendon, her sweet and loving father, sanded and stripped it
back to it's original look. Isabelle picked out new
knobs and voila! A brand new look!

We made the difficult decision to place our home for sale.We never sold our previous home and then renters have made no comments about wanting to purchase it. Their lease is up in February andwe don't want to face having two houses again. We thought we had found THE house for our family when we bought this one.However, it seems other plans are in store for us, but we don't yet know them!
These two sweet children of ours are understandably upset that
we will be selling this home. Please keep them (and our whole family) in your thoughts
and prayers. Especially that they will have peace and assurance in these
unstable and troubling times.

I forgot to go up and look at it today! But the picture looks great. Where did all of those little baby years go?
