A big announcement!

It is official! The sale of our California house finalized. This means someone else now owns it! Hurray!!! I cannot tell you how much lighter I feel now! Now the real fun begins. Let me show you our new house:

We hope to move in about two weeks. It is a brand new house so we were able to choose the carpet and have some more tile laid. It is in a great neighbor hood, we are really excited!




This is the kitchen, the new appliances come Tuesday.
It is a great room so the window you see here on the far right is the same window you see in the far left in the previous picture. I hate the mantel on the fireplace but William will fix that. I didn't love the stone of the fireplace but it is growing on me. The carpet comes on Monday too.

So there is our big news! Hopefully this is the beginning of our return to "real life"! Boy are my kids going to miss staying at Grandma and Grandpa's house though!
