Something Borrowed

Browsing the web a bit this afternoon I virtually visited a family's home via this questionnaire. A pretty fun way to invite you to our house for a visit, no matter where you may be, and I thought I would paint the scene for you through these questions!

If you came to our house--

You would see:
Piles of stuff waiting to be sorted and rearranged; people on computers; piano and guitar and cello and recorders and drum sticks, etc.; a little man dressed as his most recent hero (subject to change depending on the last movie viewed); eclectic collection of nice furnishings; people

We'd probably feed you:
quesadillas, apples, chocolate brownies OR leftovers OR tuna on homemade bread

And offer you this to drink:
diluted juice, tea or coffee, filtered water

We'd undoubtedly ask if you'd read:
Horatio Hornblower naval series, Dickens, Robert Frost, The Shoe series, Ann Rinaldi's books

We'd want to play this music for you:
the family playing our favorites: Julia Sinclair music, Dixie Chicks, Patsy Cline tunes, Chopin and Bach on piano by Camilla, Mazurka on violin by Liana
Or if we needed background music we'd pull out Diana Krall or Jamie Cullum CDs, or Roberto Moron's classical guitar CD

We'd want to tell you the latest about:
Family news: An expected baby being born in CA, Julia's recent music adventures, Carina's business, Aubrey's good health, CPS theater summer productions

Church news: Future expansion to nearby communities, the blossoming ministry to adjacent college campuses, home-school news from Spain

We'd probably suggest a game of:
Imaginiff, Apples to Apples

We might show off:
Family pictures, Julia's Hallmark TV CD, family videos

We might get on the computer and show you:
more family pics, Julia's video (what can I say...), our momandus.com site

If you are being entertained by Merrick he would show you the Transformers trailer


If it was a long enough visit, we might watch:
You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, Glory, or That Thing You Do

Or if you love, love, love theater I would show you my Barbara Cook In Mostly Sondheim

If you were to visit my cabin, you would find it empty and clean awaiting the arrival of new owners in a few days. A visit to my new apartment would showoff all of my boxes that still need unpacking.

hmm... changing diapers, nursing, sleeping, spending who knows how long just staring at baby faces, singing songs to the babies, reading the adventures of tom sawyer to the babies, and maybe a game or two of dutch blitz when friends stop by.

If you were to visit our home you would be first off welcomed by 2 little barking teacup doggies whom I love quite a bit.
You would see that we have many projects that are still waiting to be done as we moved in last November and this house hadn't had anything truly done in many years...
You would see that there are no more children living here, just Dave & I and the 2 teacup doggies. You would see me on my computer often times during the day. You would see that I love to have people drop in and a chance to cook a meal and I love to entertain folks. You would see we usually try to find a good movie to watch come evening time. You wold see that we love to have a good cup of coffe, DDonuts of course. You would hear us talking about God and what He has and is still doing in our lives. For sure you would see how much my husband and I love each other in the Lord. Feel free to stop in our home anytime you'd like, we would love to have you.
