It's ours!

We are finally homeowners! I can't believe how fast it came. We started building less than 3 months ago. Crazy! I need to post some pics of us with the house. I promise I will when life slows down! We closed last Wednesday and moved Thursday and Friday (Saturday, Sunday...that's the bad part about not really having to be out on a specific day, it's easy to let things linger...). Work has been pretty crazy for both of us, so we haven't had much time to feel settled quite yet. It's funny, though. It definitely feels like we're just playing grown up. I'm sure I won't feel that way once we pay our first mortgage. We LOVE the house. McCarthur has really done a fantastic job with the house. It's beautiful. We are really loving the finished basement. It's Sienna's toy haven. I love not having my living room look like an explosion of toys. Sienna has adjusted so well and just loves it. She runs around banging on every cupboard and shelf she can get her hands on. She already knows where everything is. It's really cute, she loves turning on the master bath tub and ripping her clothes off. Anyway, we are slowly getting settled and unpacked. I can't wait until we are all unpacked and decorated. Patience is definitely not my strongest point! I just can't wait until we can actually entertain and have people over. It's been a long time since we were in a place where we really had the space to entertain. I've missed it. Anyway, just wanted to post a little something. I'll post more pics and details later.

Yay! So excited for you guys. We are finally finishing our basement right now. So I have four rooms I get to paint and decorate. It will be fun. And SO nice to have twice the house. I need to come up and visit you sometime.
