With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Job Done

Job Done

Jamie asked if we would like to stop by her house on the way home from our visit to Philly .
She and Josh have been working hard gutting and re-doing the second floor of their cape cod house making room for their growing family.
It was taken down to the studs and new walls, electricity, windows and lighting were installed.
New carpet had just been laid and the rooms were put back together.
The kids were so excited to chill out and show us their new rooms.
 Keri Jill
 She feels like a princess with a chandelier in her room.
  Since the weather was so warm she was able to stand by an open window to watch the birds.
 Pop-Pop trying to wheedle (unsuccessfully) a kiss from Cambrie as Keri comes running to give him some birthday lovin'.
Noah and Silas were arranging their stuffed animals just so when we arrived.
The kids were so content to play while we sat and chatted.
Caleb John has the new dormer for his own space.
My dear Jamie taking a well earned rest after much painting and working to get this project complete before baby girl arrives.
Silas was showing Pop-Pop some of his homeschool computer work as the other kids gathered around. Little Cambrie ooched in for some help with her Lego's.

even the stairwell got a fresh coat of paint

I love your daughters sense of style. I wonder wherever she got it??? ;) I felt myself out of breath as I looked at all the results of all that hard work and at her baby belly and remember how hard it is to breath and work and tend to home and hearth while having a baby growing and pushing out your insides. Not for the weak!!! Congrats to her!!

It all looks beautiful, with graceful style! There is something about a dormer that really give a room charm. And such a cute family!

Hi Lorrie!!
Thanks for visiting my blog! I had to come and visit yours, too, and love it! :)
My middle name is Lorene and that is where my Mom got Lorrie from. It confuses people when they learn that my "real" name is Rosetta Lorene, lol. I have no clue where Mom got the spelling of Lorrie, but I like that it's different.
It's so great that there are more Lorrie's out there!!
I will be back to visit again soon :)

What a marvelous job she has done making that house into a home. Love the little nook that Caleb has. How cute is that? I am so glad you were able to pop by and see all their hard work realized.

Blessings to you this Sunday- xo Diana
