From "House" to "Home" Scrapbook

Pin It!

As we all wait for the final approval on my younger son, Nick, first home. I'm looking back on all the excitement we had last year when our older son, Matthew, bought his first home. I thought I would share with you a 8" X 8" scrapbook that I made for him of the "Before" and "After" of changing it from a "house" to a "HOME". The house was in need of A LOT of work, mostly cosmetic. He purchased it one week before he graduated college so we all lent a hand in helping him get it in shape for him to move in by the time he graduated. Well we did it!!! And it was 100% done within 3 weeks!!! He loves owning his own home and continues to make improvements to it. The thing I love the most is when he confided in me that now he really understands how much he appreciates & loves his family.

WOW!!! What an awesome way to document the fantastic first-home memories! If only we ALL could be that organized. I love how you even kept such close track of all the purchases/gifts. Looks like you are quite the garage-saler!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
