A Look Inside The Christine

This house is right across from our other one.
This gives the option, of a large family gathering
or churches, to use both homes.

It has been a lot of work getting each house ready for guests.
(We still have a few things on back order, that need to be brought in)
A lot of love went into them.
We can officially call each, a HOME.
Now, we can show what God has given to us,
by showing love to others.

  "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:34-35

A Look Inside, The Thomas

God has given us an opportunity to share and
bless others, with what He has given us.
This is The Thomas
It has two bedrooms upstairs, along with
an open loft.

It has a kitchenette, bathroom, living room, and bedroom.
Plus an entrance to outside.

But the most important thing about
The Thomas, is the built-in

Getting Things Ready

When we bought these two houses,
we needed to make them

There are bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms with beds.
Living rooms with a couch and a few lamps.

But how do you make them a Home

You call your daughter for help
and head over to Costco.

We went Shopping!! 

It only took a couple of hours.
We loaded up one flat bed cart and two
regular shopping carts.

We needed two of EVERYTHING!
Two sets of pots and pans
Two sets of dishes.
Two vacuum cleaners.
Two coffee pots.
Two bundles of kitchen towels.
Two sets of brooms.
Two sets of silverware.
Two sets of glasses.

Each home sleeps 10!!
So we needed enough
towels for 20 people, plus backups!
Sheets, pillows and blankets in all sizes,
 plus backups.

Each bathroom needed a toilet brush, bath mat,
waste can and a hairdryer.
And don't forget a plunger or two.

I finally realized that between the two homes,
there are 7 bathrooms!

Shopping with Ila May, Isaac and Kimmy
was really a lot of fun!
I have NEVER shopped like that before.
People were staring at us .
One guy came up to us and asked,
 "Are you really going to buy all of that?"

  Once everything was packed in the utility trailer,

 (thanks to Mark and his outstanding packing skills!)
 we headed up to McCall.

We arrived and
 unpacked everything.
Then we unboxed all the items.
Boxes everywhere!

I also bought decorations, lamps and wall art for each home.

It has taken several trips back up, to
arrange and hang everything.

We don't mind going up.
Tom and I have fallen in love with McCall.

One of the trips we had a special helper.

Levi worked hard cleaning and helping
in every way.

His reward was being spoiled by his

Our last trip up was to install
all the TV's.

We are working hard to get
each home ready.
Our first guests arrive Nov, 8th.
They have rented both homes for a
family celebration.

to be continued....
 (a sneak peak inside each home)


"Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans."

Proverbs 16:3
