Its ours!

We officially closed on our new home Friday, June 30th! We are having to be patient though...we decided to have the floors redone before move in. And with the type of floors we are having put in(the handscraped hardwoods take forever to install!) we are having to wait about two weeks to move in. Its killin me! But I know it will be easier this way, just gotta have patience. I figure I've been patient this long, I can handle two more weeks! We did a lease back for the sellers so they had that weekend to move out..so we actually went to the house for the first time Sunday night as "our house" just to walk around, let the kids play in the backyard, etc. It was so fun! And so exciting. While the house was right out nasty(What is wrong with people? I don't see how people can live in such filth. Judgmental, yes, sorry I'm being mean..but geesh! At least make the house a little bit liveable before move out...) anyways, off that rant...it was still so exciting. We can't wait to make it our own and fix it up. And the kids just had so much fun running around, playing on their new playset, bumping their volleyballs back and forth. Ammon kicked a ball around the yard and played on his little car. These were things we could never do in our old yard. The yard alone on this house was something that really drew us in. A whole acre. Its fantastic! There was a moment while the kids were so happy and playing that Joey and I just looked at each other and smiled and felt like, this is home. We are so blessed and so grateful to have found this home. We plan on staying here, well, forever. Here are pics from that wonderful evening...Joey carrying a pregnant lady across the threshold(a tradition:)..the girls excited for their new rooms(and yes some painting is in order..and as you can see Aubrey is very excited to have her very own room finally)..and some backyard fun...
