:) Photos of Our New Life in the Land of Lincoln :)

Well, I've finally decided to take a moment and post some photos of our new life in IL. I hope you enjoy them! P.S. I'll try to post some more this week!

One of Our Decks.




















My little sisters at the Glen Oak Zoo.















Our lake and dock. Oh, and our canoe too. :)
















A cozy corner in our living room. (and a little snippet of the kitchen. I'll try to take some more pictures this week of the other rooms in the house.)














The living room. And the sliding glass doors that overlook the lake.

Daniel, he really has blessed us! everything is so lovely up here!

Danya, it's actually just like you said. Seeing a glimpse of God and all his beatiful creation. It's amazing!

Talya, thank you. Now y'all must come visit us. :)

Sierra, yes, I took them. :) Well, actually except the one at the zoo. Tiff took that one.

Brooke, I'm so glad! Please come visit us soon. When I told my mom that y'all would be especially excited to come because of hiking and stuff. Here eyes got wide. "I don't think that they want to do any hiking for a while!" :D I'm so glad to hear that John's doing better!

The Pookie said...

How cold is it up there? (it JUST got a little colder down here! I actually had to turn my fan on low last night!)

Jessica McDonald said...

Danya, I want you to come visit too. Hey, when you're famous you won't forget about me, will you? :)

Sierra, k. I'll do that.

Nathaniel, well, it's almost better. It's bigger, that's for sure (about 1500 sq ft bigger!). I do love it though.

Brooke, it was in the mid 40's today and right now (it's getting dark) it's supposed to be 31 but feels like 27 or something. Talk about freezing! lol. I'm going to be an icicle by the time spring comes! :D
I am glad to hear that it's getting cooler in TX, though. That's good. That's awesome that it's cooling off down there. Actually, I wouldn't mind a little heat right now (lol. I can't believe i said that!)!! Would you share some with me? :D

The Pookie said...

Mid 40's???????? Yes, we definately need to do some trading! I'll send you 10 or so (you specify) degrees of heat.. and you send me 20 or so degrees of cold... Be sure to get first class shipping :):):)

Jessica McDonald said...

Ashton Bandy said...

What is this?! The cold is good for you! ....kinda, in..some...way...I can't think of...right now.

Just think....would you rather be hot and sweaty, or cold and freezing?

I go for the latter. ;-)

Jessica McDonald said...

Ashton, lol. I think that I like right in between. That's just perfect for me. Of course, when it gets hot I'll be wanting it to be cold!lol.

btw, that was so much fun playing tely charades!!! let's do at church! :D
lol.
