house surfing


So, once again I am searching for a house. I need a big house. I want a mansion, actually. I love those houses in books, with like, 17 bedrooms and wings and servant's quarters. That's what I want, for cheap. Realistic, no?

For the next month or two, we'll be staying here, in this 3 bedroom... while we look. When we moved in, there were 5 of us. As of January, thanks to the welcome addition of 2 radiants, we will be 7. And then I want to start our adoption process... we need more room!

So, I look. There are actually lots of 4 bedrooms with basements in our price range... thank you, midwest. Unfortunately, they are all far from where we need to be, or seriously scary.

Surely there is some 100 year old house with hardwood floors and a jillion bedrooms that just needs a little tlc. It would be easier to buy, probably. But we don't want to buy.... we are too mobile to be stuck with a house.

Oh, and maybe you want to see the cuteness of the school picture. I thought so.


  1. Hey you never know what you can get if you ask God! Our friend Shirley Arnold has a mansion in Florida. When they first moved there she wanted a place as a retreat for other pastors. They bought if for really cheap because it had been seased fro drug lords!

  2. Gorgeous house-- I'd like living in a brick home with the center as a large circle entrance!

    I hope you find what505+6zx will work!! (Keith added some there)

    What is Squozen? If you freeze something, it's been frozen, so if you squeeze something, it's been squozen!

    So be sure that at the end of the day, your family has been squozen by you!!

  3. only problem with the old rickety is the price of electric with all the holes etc. your bill would be too high and i know it is cold!

    just a thought.........


  4. oh, and His Cuteness is just too precious for words!

  5. Josh, lets find some local drug lords.. pray & talk with them.. turn 'em in.. put up a bid.. ha ha

  6. it would be fun to be able to draw the home of our dreams, huh?

    for now, i'll just live here in my own little forest with my beautiful kitchen and make things,

    i am actually very content. just the leaves are laying on the driveway and give the grounds a very disorderly appearance.....

  7. I could probably find some drug lords... maybe Craigslist...

  8. The cutest special little guy ever!Mama

    jess - trust in the Lord about the house - lean not to your own understanding - in all your ways acknowledge HIM - and HE will direction your paths

    to buy or not to buy.... just trust and be patient

    i cannot! believe my second daughter is moving away from home too. i think my heart will be broken soon.

    the only thing that keeps me happy about it, is that she will be with you - so....

    please - keep her away from any persons who may kidnap her away from home forever
