We had plenty of help, and finished in time to say goodbye to the house and go sit and rest for a few minutes before bed. We stayed the night with Tony’s parents, since obviously our house had nowhere for us to sleep.
Friday morning we went and closed on both houses, then went to our new house. Let the fun begin! The carpet cleaners beat us there, and we got started cleaning.
We’ve been here ever since, and we are loving it! The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful, the kids are loving the swing set and playing outside. Cadence is addicted to the stairs, and we have all been sleeping well.
Here is the house so far:
|If you can't guess this is the hallway, you are in more trouble than I can fix!|
|Laundry room - obviously now it has a washer and dryer and a BUNCH of laundry in it :D|
|Guest bath - still looks like this except with our shower curtain in it.|
|Awww... 'new' bed :)|
|Cadence's room - complete with sleeping with the door open!!!|
|*Gasp* Clean kitchen!|
|Dining Room, and in the background, Sunroom (a.k.a. the Playroom)|
|Nice clean living room, which I've already rearranged.|
|Look Mama, we have leaves to dangle from our mouth at our new house!|
|The first thing Tony did was put in a tiny garden. Cadence was thrilled!|
|Huge mirror in the living room :)|
|This room is a lot bigger than this picture looks. And yes, it's still pretty much this unpacked - that's my project for next week (I hope!)|
|They LOVE this! The backyard has quickly become our favorite place.|
|Back of house / playroom / Cadence watering her rosebush. I hope it survives the transplant!|
|Whoops, sideways :)|
|Enjoying the swings for the first time.|
P.S. Lest you think our house is always so spotless…. It’s not. Not even right now. So there.
P.P.S. Since these pictures, we've done a lot, especially in the playroom. I hope to get pictures up of that soon :)
