More photos of Grandma's home

To add to the collection. I love my Grandmas home. It has a great lay out. The living room can be arranged to have an intimate conversation or fit all my extended family. The hall takes you any where you want to go. The built-in's in the bedrooms are awesome. The downstairs still scares me and everyone I know. Some things have there place and others float around and get changed every time you come. It is always decorated for the season. It evolves and is eclectic. Values are taught in this house. Family, love, music, Gospel, family, patriotism, leadership, family, beauty, and a love of nature and people. People come hungry and go fed and rested. It has been the only house that has remained a part of my whole life. It has always been there. But overall, everything that it is, is because of what my Grandma has made it to be. I love the home because I love my Grandma.

Very well said. I agree with everything you said. :)

Thank you for the spices. Dad & Mom brought them by last night.

What is going on with all the earthquakes down there yesterday?

What a nice description. I've never been there, but I can imagine it through your words. I don't have a house like that any more. I miss my Grandparents' homes. :(

Thank you for taking these! The one of the stuffed animals in the basket is so bright, I never think of that room as being bright. Last time we were there, my two oldest slept in the basement but Caroline got scared of her own accord and came upstairs. She said she didn't like that scary man in the picture (the conquistador:)Missed you at Easter, hope we're there next year!

Melissa, Gma had the drapes open in that big room. It made a difference.

Thank you Sallie. I loved looking at Easter in Zion - who's the adult male sharing the bench with Erin? I got a little homesick looking at Grandma's house. The pictures are beautiful, and your words match them. Too bad she can't see and read them. We've got to teach her to blog, or get Carly or Scott to show her!
