Today is the greatly-anticipated HOME TOUR and you have just arrived at the home of The Happy Homemaker!! Please take your time and enjoy. When you're finished, come back up here and go on over to BooMama's place to find more homes to tour!! Thanks BooMama!!

Welcome to our back porch (where all our closest friends enter our home)!
This is how my office looked one day for about 5 minutes.
This is the view from my blogging space. That tree on the left was planted in memory of my mother-in-law. The tree on the right is a brown turkey fig.

This is the boys' plaything. I put the lattice up around the bottom of the fort and made a really cool sandbox in there complete with benches and a latching door. Thought it would keep the cats out. Nobody ever latched the door...

This is the stair case and one of my favorite scrapbook pages.

The boys' bedroom, which is my favorite room in the house when it is clean.

This was "the white bathroom" before the boys decided to hang from the L-shaped shower curtain rod and the plumber took out the sink to find a leak in the wall and the new sink broke when it fell into the tub and broke into a thousand pieces. But, that's a whole 'nother story.

This is my colorful bathroom, though you can't see all the colors so very well here. I tried to adjust the brightness and got this strange effect. Anyway, you'll notice the previous owners installed two sinks. It really confuses our guests for some reason.

The living room. If you were really here, I'd offer you a cola and we'd sit down in here to chat. Thanks for dropping by!

Numbering your stairs is such a wonderful idea. I'd do that, but I don't think the carpet would take it well. Thanks so much for the great ideas

I think a decent view from the computer is a requirement!! I like the ceiling angles in the boys room. Thanks for the tour.
