New House

Like I said before, we were able to get in on Wednesday and I brought over the first load in my car. It is always so chaotic on moving day. No horns blowing announcing your presence into the new home. Just me, walking in with a box and trying to hurry to lay down rugs, so the men who move ya in don't get mud on the new carpet, and rushing to put up signs labeling what room is what. The men that moved us were so great. They worked hard and did an awesome job putting the right boxes into the right rooms. Thank you!!! They made my life over the next couple of days a lot easier. This is the view from our back patio/balcony. The morning after we woke up a buck was walking around in our backyard, then when we were eating lunch there was a doe. I haven't seen either since, so hopefully no one shot them! I did almost hit a buck on the way home from the gym one night. It sounds like I live in the wild or at least the country, but I have neighbors on all sides and that buck I almost hit was in town! Beck and Pais's play room. Lucky little buggers, it's the biggest room in the house practically.I put Beck and Paisley in the same room and it is working out rather nicely. It's a big room and they tend to stay in their room longer at night now.
One of my favorite parts of the house; the pantry. I LOVE IT!

My other favorite part. The little study/nook, off the kitchen and dining area. One day I am gonna read a book in there in a nice big fancy chair....The other night we made a "blue" cake for Family Night. Which brings me to me least favorite part of the house....The beast.....It's a gas stove and I have never had one before. Well, when I was in Guatemala there was a gas oven, but I never cooked in it a whole lot anyways. Especially after someone left the gas on and a girl, Rachel, went to lite it and singed her eyebrows and the tin roof on our little house popped up. Never really cared for the things since. But now I have one. And supposedly they work really nice and people love them. I will admit that it heats up fast, but the thing scares me to death. It smells really bad and it always is setting our detectors off. I keep calling Sears to make sure it is working correctly and they say that they don't know much about gas stoves, so now what I am I supposed to do? They can't come out and look at it til next Thursday, so if it blows my house up before then, well, I guess that's that and I pray that we aren't home.

So that's my new house and we love it. :)

Solution to the beast - don't use it! Cute costumes but I keep warning you - get that bottle out of her mouth unless it's full of water! You actually had movers? What a great view. You need to send me your new address.

I love gas stoves, we had one in Boise and it took me a while to get use to it. But it was really nice to cook on and i Loved how it was instantly off or on. I did on occasion leave on the gas by accident only to wonder what the awful smell was a few minutes later..Anyway, cute house.

I do love the view. I do hope in the summer there will not be to many mosquitos to bother you. The house looks lovely and I do love the pantry. The kids are cute for Halloween and they must of had a good time.

Hey, you really seem to like your new home. Good for you. Enjoy it and good luck with getting used to living there perfectly. Moving is usually the most difficult part, the new life is great.

Ahh ha ha! I LOVE that memory, even though my eyebrows took a while to re-coupe! Reading that account in my journal makes me laugh so hard!
Congrats on the new house and I'm so glad the guys fixed your stove! You'll love the gas stove once you get use to it. I can't go back to electric, darn gas biols water so much faster!
