Our New House!

We are officially home owners! Derrick and I bought our first house last week. It is a cute 4 bedroom 2 bath home built in 1962. The previous owner built a little playhouse and swing set (Derrick calls it the fort) outside that Moses will love to play on. The house also has a pool (although we have no idea how to maintain a pool). There are hardwood floors throughout the house that we are having refinished. Our first 'surprise' was when we ripped up the carpets in the bedrooms to finish the hardwoods underneath them. Whoever put the carpet down used hardwood floor glue to the glue the carpet - which won't come up. So..........after hours and hours of work we are now having to buy carpet to put back on top of the hardwood. UGH. We are hoping to move in next Saturday. We are excited about the possibilities and about having a place to call our own. So all of our friends from out of town, please come stay with us! We have a room just for you. :)

All the pictures are of the previous owner's stuff. There is nothing in there now. I'll update the pictures once we get it settled with our own stuff.
