We Bought a House!

Hey friends, we've been busy busy lately. Because...we bought a house! Yippy! I thought taking care of baby boy and his energetic big sister was time consuming, but there literally aren't enough minutes and hours in the day right now. I've been purging, and cleaning, and packing, and sorting, and organizing all the things during Lincoln's 23 minute naps and while Aria is watching Moana for the 13th time. There is so much left to do, which is somewhat alarming since we are moving today. Today! Deep breathing...and just keep trudging along (or shoving stuff in boxes).

I managed to remember to snap some pictures on our final walk through before the house was inundated with our stuff. Come take a peek at our very first house!

 The front door.

When you walk inside to the left is the sitting room.

And, to the right is the formal dining.

As you enter the house to the right is a hallway.

The first door is the laundry.

The laundry room leads into the garage.

The next door is the room Aria chose for herself.

 And, finally Lincoln's room.

As you enter the house and look to the left you see the living room. One bit I neglected to take a picture of is just to the left of this space. It is the nook I plan on turning into a play spot for the kids.

 And, the kitchen at the heart of the house.

Out the backdoor and into the backyard. Fencing in the yard is the first on our list of bigger projects.

We've been dreaming about owning our own home for a long time. And, we are just so excited that that moment has finally arrived. We closed last Tuesday. So, we've been bringing over odds and ends to the house for a few days. But, today is the big day! We've got the truck arriving bright and early, and by tonight we will be spending the first evening in our first house.

Wish us luck =)
