Cautiously optimistic

This whole house thing has been a bit of a roller coaster, and I will spare you the gory details but as for now, our house is back under contract which means we are back to being excited about the house we're trying to buy. It is being built, and is supposed to be finished at the beginning of August. I have been negligent in remembering my camera on my visits to see the progress because I think part of me doesn't want to get too attached, but it's kinda too late. Anyway, my friend Ganelle went out there with me yesterday and since she was sick of me forgetting my camera, she brought hers instead and took some pictures. So, here's a little sampling of our (hopeful) new digs!

KIDS IN FRONT


THE BACK


LOOKING INTO THE FAMILY ROOM FROM THE KITCHEN - THIS IS WHERE WE WILL SNUGGLE UNDER BLANKETS WHEN IT'S SNOWING, OPEN CHRISTMAS PRESENTS AND WATCH THAT FIRST SEASON OF "MACGYVER" ON DVD THAT CORY GOT FOR FATHER'S DAY.


IF YOU COME TO VISIT ME, THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL READ MY EXTRA COPIES OF 'O' MAGAZINE WHILE YOU'RE CONDUCTING YOUR "BUSINESS" AND WHERE I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH AMPLE SUPPLY OF PERT SHAMPOO

DREW IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MASTER BEDROOM

I have been told there is onle one thing worse than actually moving. Waiting for a house to be built. Good Luck. It look great.

It looks great, and HUGE! Are you gonna get a maid?

PS I have thick curly hair, I'll need a few extra bottles of PERT for my visit.

Your friend Ganelle seems really thoughtful, to remember her camera and all. And that little boy in the shower with Sam is SO cute! Such darling curls!

Oh, and the house is nice too. (Not that I'm not perfectly happy with my own home...)

I know I was supposed to be focusing on the house, but really, I love your kids! : )

Lisa said...

A little worldly, don't you think?!! (hee, hee) J/K You deserve it.... thanks, Ganelle for bringing your camera so she can finally post some pictures. :)

Hey! I thought the deal was you'd get over your whole fence thing and move into my ward boundaries...

Dang it.

As my niece says the other day.."Mom and Dad always take showers together...everyday!" So don't worry, it will become a habit, just much much much later in life :D

The house is great! And so much space outside. Our places are within a fingernails reach of eachother up in the big expansive Northwest...go figure.
