Some Assembly Required

We have now reached the final stop in our tour. We in our home! Many of you asked for pictures (via Facebook), but everything isn't ready for a full-out photo tour. For now, you'll have to settle for a compilation of pictures depicting the things that I put together, and the kids. God put them together.

This space saver was no big deal to put together, except that the holes were difficult to line up. Still, it was the second easiest thing I did.

This breakfast table was the easiest. I just had to put the legs on the table. Simple!

Now this thing was something else. It was essentially just pre-cut wood with tiny holes to start you off. I like to think that I built this thing. I didn't, but I still like to think it.

This was the most time-consuming, but I did it! And I love the result. Last week, the women threw us a surprise house-warming, and people sat in the chairs and bench, and none of them fell apart! I'm so proud.

Here are DeLaynie and Ella on our red couch. It's insanely comfy. You should sit on it. You really should. (Apparently, Dora said something very funny.)

And this is me and Ella. No real reason. I just like taking pictures of myself, but I feel pretty conceited when someone else isn't with me. DeLaynie wasn't feeling too cooperative, so I went with Ella.
I'll post more pictures once the rest of the house becomes photogenic. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. :)
