A very important step was taken today when we were approved for our new home!!! Mike will be much closer for his work & we'll end up moving here in the next few weeks....so I'll be in my new place prior to the trip!!! What a big relief that we found a place!

It's a 5 bdrm, 2.5 bath, living room, family room, game room, kitchen & dining rooms, storage room, fenced backyard with a firepit, above ground pool & big gardening area. Has a nice sized front yard as well!!

The front of the home:






Living Room, kitchen & dining rooms:







Looking out our dining room unto the large deck:




The family room & game rooms:




The backyard:





We're pretty excited!!

Congratulations on the new home! - it is always tense waiting to see if you got it or not.

Your plans for the trip sound like a lot of fun - I have never done a tour so I'll be interested to see what your thoughts are when you get back.

Happy Halloween!

Laurie, what a cute place. How big are the bedrooms? The yard looks great. And having a playroom space is wonderful. I am so happy for you.

The Master is a decent size (bigger than what we have now), the 2 upstairs bedrooms are pretty standard sized & then the 2 downstairs are pretty good sized for bedrooms.

There are NO mini blinds in this house!!!! Only the vertical blinds.....YAY!! Also no closet doors.....curtains & I'm happy about that too......no doors to damage or remove to keep them from getting ruined.

Having a separate living/family room is awesome....been a long time since we had that set up & then a game room as a bonus. So tons of space!!

I noticed the vertical blinds I think they are beautiful I wasn't a fan of them when we had them. The individual blinds would get pulled out after a time. Love that there are no closet doors. I hate closet doors.


How do you decide who gets what bedroom.

So as promised....picks of our Halloween night!!

Michayla was miserable, so we didn't dress her up & since she wasn't going to go out we didn't dress up Shy either. Kinda sad I didn't get to see them in the princess dresses....but it wasn't meant to be this year.

So Anthony & Addy got dressed up & went trick or treating. Here's the front of our house:



The kids in their costumes:





The pumpkins all light up:






We're heading up to Portland in the morning to get a new button placed in Michayla.....sure hope they can clean up the area...looks bad & extremely sore. Maybe they can help with that as well!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!!
