Home Sweet Home!

We finally closed on our house yesterday afternoon and everything went very smoothly.  We were in and out of there in 30 ish minutes. I wanted to take photos of the house empty, but of course that didn't happen because I couldn't find the camera that we loaded in the car somewhere.  We loaded up our cars Tuesday night so we could go straight from work to closing (well David took half day and loaded heavy things without me) to the new house.  We were anxious about getting in there since it had been so long and couldn't wait for the weekend.  We brought just mattresses to sleep on (of course Mr. Max got the royal treatment with full crib set up and all his toys).  Thanks to Davids parents for bringing stuff over that we couldn't fit and to Darrin, Stacey and Austin for helping unload our cars and make us yummy dinner and breakfast! I thought I'd share some photos that are half from my iphone and half from the listing.
This is the entry way.  I really like the hardwood floors. 
To the right is the office with nice french doors
 and to the left is a nice big dining room.  We were also thankful that they ended up leaving all the light fixtures, fans and blinds. They were suppose to take all light fixtures and maybe fans so that was a huge plus for us. 
The family room has rows of windows with views of the fantastic treescape in the backyard. 
The main selling feature to me was the kitchen.  We are in love with the kitchen island. 
 It is massive, probably the size of a full bed.  It looks much smaller in pictures than it is in person. There is so much storage and cabinetry as well.
The backyard is very luscious in the summer months, but even now in the winter is fantastic.  
You can hear the babbling brook (as everyone is saying) out on the decks. 
These pics are from the listing in the summer.  I can't believe it's been 7 months since we originally looked at the house. We are thankful to be in the house and the first night went great.  Max slept pretty good and so did we.  Cable is being hooked up today and carpet cleaning this evening. Now if only these next 2 days could go by fast at work so we can get to the moving of our storage unit items!
