This is a new blog group that I have joined called Self Portrait Tuesday. I thought it would be a fun idea and it would give me something to blog about every Tuesday! This week challenge was a pretty easy one for me to start with: "if i came to visit you next week, how would i know which doorbell to ring? do you have a formal entrance? should i come to the front door? or do you prefer your guests to come around back? (would you be surprised if i came in through the garage?!?)"
First of all, to get to our house you'll have to wade through the pool of melting snow at the edge of our driveway. Or you can just jump over it. The smart thing to do would be to just park in the driveway and avoid it all together.
Next you'll have to tromp up a whole lot of stairs, which are usually covered in 2 inches of ice. Thank goodness it's warmed up enough so that people can come to my front door! Notice the Christmas decorations still up because it hasn't been warm enough to take them down. I better get on that.
Then once you reach the top of mount everest, you'll want to pray the big pile of snow on top of the roof doesn't fall on your head. It's really cold in your face!
You can either ring the doorbell or knock, but either way, the kids will come running and fight over who gets to open the door. It takes them awhile to unlock the door because the lock is hard to unlock. Once it's open, you'll be greeted by these little ones.
You could try the back door, but you'll have to walk through a lot of snow to get there. Usually only our back door neighbors use that door in the summer time when you can see the grass.
When you leave our house this is the lovely view you'll see...
Finally this is a picture of home sweet home. We love our house because it's the first house we've ever owned! We lived in apartments for the first 8.5 years of our marriage while Matthew was in school and it's nice to have room. Whether it's through the front door or the back, we love it when people visit!
