A Month Later

I can't believe it was a month ago today that we finally closed on our new house. The last month has really flown by. I still don't feel completely settled in, but we are making progress. Hopefully before long we can have everything put away, tax season will be over with, and the church construction project will be finished and we can simply start enjoying ourselves again. Brian and I are both really ready for a break. He has been putting in a lot of hours at church, on top of work. I have been working way more overtime than I really anticipated. We both are overwhelmed and exhausted. But this too shall pass, and before long we will be able to just have some down time with nothing planned. I can't wait!!!

Our Living Room

Here are a couple of shots of the living room end of the great room. I still have lots of things to put up but we are getting there a little at a time. As you can see there are a lot of windows. The designer of this home must have loved natural light as much as I do. There are three sliding glass doors or floor to ceiling windows in almost every room. I really enjoy not needing to turn the lights on during the day.

The Panaramic View

This is the view from our front you can tell, we can see for miles and miles.

A Room With a View

So I have promised pictures of the house, but I have yet to follow through. That is because I still haven't finished unpacking, so there are still boxes sitting everywhere, and who wants to see boxes, right? While it isn't a picture of the house, I will give you this.

It's not the greatest picture, but this is the night time view from our bedroom window. The picture really doesn't do it justice at all.

And since we have moved the weather has really run the gamut from one extreme to the next. The first weekend we were here it snowed...the next weekend it was 80 degrees...and now we are back to freezing temps. The kids enjoyed this snowball fight on the front deck just 2 weeks ago...

And I do promise to eventually get some pictures of the house posted...

It's Been a Week

It is hard to believe we have already been in our new house for a week. It is slowly starting to feel like home. The boxes are beginning to thin out some, as we tackle unpacking a few each day. The kids are settled into their rooms - and loving every square inch of them. The kitchen is pretty much put together, still some rearranging to do there but no hurry.

The really great news is we haven't found anything about the house that we just don't like. Sure there are lots of little things we want to fix, but nothing that we can't live with at least for a little while.
