It's hard to believe, but 4 months to the day from when we moved our first thing into the new house, we finished. The house is done! Our missing piece, a coffee table that took 10 weeks to arrive, came in on Friday. That's not to say that there's not more on our to-do list for the house; I've heard that list never goes away. We still want to upgrade our office bookshelves and get gutters and a water softener and something to hang our bikes on in the garage. But for practical, functioning, ok-having-people-over purposes, we're done!

We hope to have you all over as our guests soon and frequently. We love our house more than we thought possible, but we love it even more when it's filled with good friends and family and laughter.

Enjoy the pictures!

our front door with our cute little scarecrow man--I think I'm going to like this whole "decorating for the holidays" thing...

our office. Not the prettiest room in the place, but we love both having desks--we're at our computers a lot!

Our kitchen--I love how big it is! I've definitely become much more of a cook because of how much I enjoy being in this big, fancy kitchen! It's also great for parties.

kitchen table--54" x 54" that seats up to 8--and into the living room

the gorgeous paintings that Alex's dad did for us

the living room with the much-anticipated coffee table and the huge couch!

the guest room

the guest bathroom

in the guest bathroom--we made this ourselves using Microsoft Word!

master bedroom

our new bedroom furniture

around the tub in the master bath

at the other end of the tub--my baths are so relaxing!

Well, that's about all. There's another guest room that will eventually become a nursery, but all it has in it right now is a litter box and a total gym, so that's not really photo worthy. The backyard is what it is--nice and roomy and lots of grass. Hopefully we'll get some trees in it in the not-too-distant future, but right now we're just enjoying our new grill and having lots of room for horseshoes.

Consider yourselves all invited over. We hope to see you soon!
