the house...

in its 3.5 weeks post move-in form for those who have been asking for photos. taking the decorations out of the boxes is as far as we've made it and it's really hard to take photos of a room but here they are nonetheless:
front of the house:
(sorry i was too lazy to shut the garage door)
we're the dead center house of a cul-de-sac.
potted lemon trees will go on either side of the big
front window and more box woods around the front.
all the rose bushes are coming out!
sitting/music room:
(off entry)

the fairygod sister is currently moving into her new home
so we will be inheriting furniture that's not moving with her
for this room.
dining room:
also inheriting a new dining table
(those of you who have had the misfortune of sitting in these cursed chairs will be happy to hear)

family room:

which may or may not house a flatscreen tv someday.
jury is still out on that one
guest bedroom:
(aka grandma kippy's room)


beckam & asher's room:
hallway office?:
master bedroom:
master bath:
my favorite!
master closet:
around the corner:
i can finally see my clothes!!

this was the view from the master bedroom for a few weeks, while the water holding area had water:
and this is the view to the left.
it's our neighbors backyard but it's still our view!

behind the wall you can see a grassy area, which is an empty lot that will never be developed and is completely enclosed by a privacy fence. so despite the vast space in our backyard, guess where the boys choose to spend much of their time? over the wall, digging for treasures, of course!!

David and Amanda said...

Hey Cheryl! Love the house and your beautiful family. Super-jealous at that amazing backyard. I didn't make the "blue" comment, wish I had it, was a funny one. Not sure when we'll be in Bak-o again, but I would LOVE to meet up!

Stephanie said...

Your new home is very beautiful! Congratulations! You are a great decorator, too.

Carrie said...

Love it! It's huge, how many square feet is it? And I can NOT believe that you squeezed all of those clothes into your last closet.

Andra said...

I'm so excited you get to have a great big house, with a backyard in exactly the place you want to be. Dreams really do come true!

now andie, i couldn't say it's exactly the place i want to be but i believe it is where we're supposed to be for now and we're content.

thanks nicole.
