Hi everyone, I know it's been a while since I wrote a post, but it's been extremely busy here.  We've been trying to get settled into our new home, and at the same time busy with projects.  I know you've all been wondering where we live, so without further delay welcome to...

The Parsonage

Here's the outside of our new home.

 It's a ranch home built in 1962.
It's also the same home/Parsonage that we lived in with our first charge back sixteen years ago.  It's kind of a strange feeling to be moving back into our former home, this time minus our five children. The home was originally a 3 bedroom, bath and a half home.  With a fourth bedroom/office.  There have been several updates since the home was built.  A new deck was added back in August replacing some very worn cement steps.  It has received new landscaping since we lived here and the  three large oak trees that lined the front of the home were removed  because they had become dangerous do to their age.  They'll be replacing the siding along with adding new windows mid-March.

It has a two stall attached garage. 
 (The garbage cans will not remain in the front of the house.  We just have to make a place for them elsewhere.)
When they replace the siding on the house they will be installing one large garage door.  This will give the added height needed to get our pickup in easily.

The Parsonage sits next door to the church.

The view down the street to the north.  
A ball field and park sit directly across the street from us, making it a lovely location. 

It seems so flat and open compared to being surrounded by evergreens and mountains.
It also seems different to have snow on the ground compared to green grass.  We definitely will be experiencing more winter weather here.

I'll be showing the inside of the Parsonage soon.



  1. I can just imagine how amazing it must be to live in the same house again many years later! How fun! I can't wait to see the inside.

  2. The picture of the house and the church is lovely!! I know the inside will be perfect when you lend your finishing touch!!
    It would be fun to go back and live in a previous home I think...I always have my best ideas JUST before moving :^)
    Blessings to you,
