Stairs Completed and the Bookcase Begun

The stairs have taken shape this last week as the important step of the railings has been done. It was quite a process!

Tuesday was the day the spindles were put on the stairway. There was much prayer involved, and all the gluing worked out (when you use Gorilla Glue, there is not room for mistakes!).

Honey, waiting while I took pictures of the stairs :-) . She is cute, but Abigail is WAY cuter.

The boys worked to carefully get each spindle in the hole and set correctly.

Now, Joseph and John’s attention is turned to building a bookcase, which has to be completed by the middle of next week so that the carpet can be installed.

Team work!

And, who can resist to include a few pictures of our cutest little niece, Abigail?!
Abigail is learning to blow bubbles (and no one is teaching her), and her relatives are having a hard time not laughing (well, I guess you could say some ARE laughing).

“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel” (Philippians 1:27).

  1. Hi Sarah,
    I have really enjoyed all the pictures of Abigail! She’s a little cutie:) I think that she is a few months older than my yougest sister Laura…I am the twin to the oldest of 8~ Your blog is an encouragement too me. I enjoy following it.
    God bless your day,

    Jenna

  2. Abigail is so adorable! What a wonderful blessing! She will be a real present to you all during this Christmas!

    (Picture request) After Christmas, could you guys put on some of her opening up some Christmas gifts? (Or at least, trying to! LOL!)

    Love in Christ,
    Jessica

  3. It is wonderful to see your house building pictures, we are also building too. We are at the drywalling stage. ๐Ÿ™‚ Praise God for suppling us some help! He is good! Your is looking good and I know the feeling of seeing progress being made. Building a house is an experience, that is for sure! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Seeing pictures of precious Abigail is a treat too. I rejoice every time I see one. She is a blessing! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. How exciting for you to have a new God given house!! It looks so pretty!
    Some of the colors match our house! We are also in the middle of a building project…adding on two bedrooms with a bath and a family room! We’ve been working for 1 1/2 years and although it’s completely livable, it’s still not totally completed! But we are so grateful for it!
    It’s funny that you mentioned Gorilla Glue!! We have also discovered it in our building project!
    We accidently broke a Christmas decoration last night and our youngest son was sad about it. My husband said, “But now we have Gorilla glue!! We can fix everything!!”
    Thank you for your blogs! It’s one of my favorite parts of my day!

  5. it’s so exciting to see the house coming together, and to know you are about to put down the carpet–exciting.
    abigail is so precious. blessings.

  6. Thank God for Abigail! And thank you, Sarah, for posting those beautiful pictures. Phil. 1:27 was a huge blessing as I have just finished memorizing the first chapter of Philippians and that verse is a particular “stand-out” for me. Miss you!
    Love,
    Mrs. H.
