4 Moms Open House – Living Room



This week the 4 Moms would like to welcome you into our living rooms! Come on in!


This is the view from our front door. That fish tank is one of SIX that my Madison cares for. At one time there was a huge aquarium [4]in front of the *fireplace that she refinished and resealed. Unfortunately, the seal didn't hold and it sprang a leak one night. And you know what they say about huge aquariums. HUGE leaks.  Let's just say it required all hands (and towels) on deck to clean up that mess! 

(*My husband and son are excellent fire builders, but this fireplace is gas and there are no gas lines in our neighborhood which means it must be hooked up to a propane tank which means we have never bothered with it since our part of  Texas is hotter'n hot most of the year.) 

[5]Here is a closer view of the picture over the fireplace. My mother gave this to me a few years ago and I absolutely LOVE it. I absolutely LOVE my mother, too. THANKS, MOM!

[6]Moving to the left of the fireplace is the chair I usually sit in while nursing the baby. Our back door is visible behind the couch.

[7]Here you see evidence that we are homeschoolers and that additionally the homeschool mom in this family is not the neat freak/perfectionist type.


Moving on around and back toward the front door you see our big chair and our Big Daddy. (I made that quilt for him. All together now... AWWWwwwwww!) Plus some grocery bags in the dining room back there that need to be put away, because not only is the homeschooling mama not the clean freak/perfectionist type, she is also the I'll-do-it-later-huh?-it's-due- tomorrow?-type and this photo was taken Wednesday night after church AND after a Walmart run, which made it pert near 10 p.m, and Mamas only have two hands and only so much time on those two hands, and hopefully all this makes her more endearing and not someone you have just decided to quit following because if she can't even pick up the junk before she takes a picture, well then what kind of role model is she?

Hello? Anyone still out there? I think I've lost them, Mom. It's just you and me again.

Well, if there's anyone still out there, go ahead and link up your own living rooms below. Remember to link directly to your living room post and be sure to include a link back to one of the 4 Moms (ME! ME! Pick ME!)
