a few pictures

I finally have a few pictures--minus the girls' rooms and the den. I feel like I need to say thank you to so many people--my mom and dad for helping us tremendously throughout the whole process, to Sassy for keeping the girls for us all the time and helping me get the house (and windows!) clean to move in, to all of Jon's siblings and spouses for showing up to help us move, to Kathy for staying here and helping me unpack and get things arranged and decorated, and to Jon for always humoring me and putting up with my insane scedules and moving furniture back and forth from room to room for me so I can decide where I want it. I love you all and we appreciate everything so much!
Now that my Oscar speech is out of the way...

My mom entertaining the girls at the "fixin house" as they called it. CJ spoils them rotten. She always shows up with a bag of goodies and presents.
My sweet dad putting on our front door lock before we moved in. What I would give right now to have that hideous yellow dumpster back in my life. We have a driveway full of garbage. We filled up six of those babies, by the way.

"I helpin' mommy."


the "cozy" (aka small) playroom



the office area off of the kitchen


Our refrigerator.
The people that bought our old house wanted ours, so we are keeping the one that was here. I think it's had a hard life. Are you jealous? I think it's hilarious.

I still have a lot to do in here--seal the floors, get a rug, paint the sconces, get a shower door...

I am freaking out right now!! I can not believe that is the same house. I LOVE it! You guys did the best job. My favs...the mudroom/office, all the light fixtures, the kitchen floors, etc. I am pretty much jealous that we do not live in an old house. Will you come decorate my house? I am SOOO behind. We need to talk! I hope you are still planning on the first of May! We all need girl time...
