A NEW for us!

I am so excited!  I can't hardly type...lol.  Hubby and I just bought our first house!!!  The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with an unfinished basement.  I can't wait to get moved in.  The house is a new build that hasn't been lived in yet.  It has been sitting empty for a couple of years.  It has some cosmetic problems (ie; cracking where the sheetrock wasn't properly taped) but with able bodied people around we are going to fix this before our things arrive from storage on the 7th of January.  It will be a busy couple of weeks getting things in order so that the movers can move in all of our stuff but we are ready for the challenge. 
We got to show the kids the house today and they are in love!  The went around to each room claiming it as if they actually got to choose it...lol.  I love those guys! 
Right now everything outside is completely snow covered but we know we will have a beautiful view in the back because of the pond that is located on the rear of the property.  It is a small run-off pond but we think it is great that we don't have a direct backyard neighbor.
The neighborhood has many kids.  You can tell because of all the playgrounds in the backyards and the numerous trampolines.  Today we even saw a bunch of kids (probably about Butterfly's age) playing outside. 
We are so excited about our new place, I can't even tell you.  This is the first property that we have ever owned and couldn't be more proud of it.  Soon we will make it our own with new paint (since we have to re-do it anyways) and our own flair. 
Wish us luck in our do it yourself project!
