One thing I can say for the last 77 days is WE LOVE OUR HOUSE!! It hasn't come without a few bumps here and there but Ryan has been on top of all of them and without any hesitation or argument. They have really been fantastic and remained true to their word in terms of service and follow up. We have been so happy here. Our twins started kindergarten last month which has been a been a big change for us. They love school and we love being so close to everything. No more having to take a half day vacation just to go to a parent teacher conference, or school open house or sports event. They have also begun playing Hockey which has been a blast. My daughter, on the other hand, has been going to what we call "ballerina School", which is just in normal terms dance class and she loves it. My parents frequently visit us along with many of our friends. Sometimes my parents will come over just to read the kids a bed time story or to see them on the bus. All of these things were never an option before due to our distance issue........moving has really been such a blessing for us and given us such a better, happier, more fun life and we are loving it!!
We hosted our first party on Halloween and it was so much nicer in this house and we all had a blast trick or treating in the neighborhood. I LOVE our neighbors and neighborhood.......we so lucked out. They are such an active community. They've been hosting parties, and doing wine walks, and our kids play together......its just a fantastic group of people!! Last week two lots over from us sold and my husband met them while they were putting up their sold sign. They have a daughter about the same age as mine so we are really looking forward to welcoming them to the neighbor hood this winter.
What else......can I just say I've loved continuing to read your blogs. I've gotten so many great ideas of where to get things, and tips. Its really been great and very helpful. I'm hoping we'll all continue to share as we discover new things about our homes and continue to decorate them. I FINALLY HAVE PICTURES!! I keep taking them and then never post them and then something changes so I take more. Well today I decided I'm just going to take a new batch and finally post them like I've been promising......so here they are!!
Here is our color selections.....
