Our First House!

Since early this morning, Friday the 13th, we have been the proud owners of our first home!!!!!!!!!! Now we can finally start to settle down! (after we have done all the painting and stuff that is needed :-) We have never spent so much money in one day as we did today!

It is in a nice neighborhood, has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths upstairs, living room/kitchen, dining room, 1/2 bath and 2 extra rooms downstairs, a mud room with lots of cubbies (very convenient for us with all the kids) and an attached 2 car garage. There is a large, unfinished basement, that we are considering to change into a big play room and maybe an office. This all on an 1 acre lot. We are very happy about it!

We will take our time getting the painting etc done and move our stuff out of storage. This is the first time in the last 8 months or so, that we don't have to move in a few days! We want to be settled there by Christmas.

Of course, now one of the cars broke down later this afternoon, so I guess we will spend even more money over the next week!
