Our New Home

Some of you have been asking for pictures of the new home. For the most part we are all settled and loving it. We are still waiting on a few finishing touches: curtains, our new entertainment center that's being built, the TV I hope to talk my husband into once I get another job, and just some odds and ends. We have not decorated two of the guest bedrooms yet. For now they are furnished as is and there are no pictures of them. Maybe I'll get around to those sometime soon. Enjoy our new home...there's lots of pictures, so enjoy!

The Great Room - This room is probably still the biggest work in progress. It's pretty messy in these pictures too. Sorry about that. There are still some finishing touches to put in the kitchen, molding, shelves and curtains. The living area is getting a new entertainment center for sure and possibly that TV I keep speaking of. Notice Josh managed to find room to tuck his bar back in the corner, so we'll always have a cold one waiting for visitors. The white door is our private entrance to the basement.

The stairs lead up to Josh's new office.
Brody sitting in his big boy seat...we're still waiting for Aidan's...should be there today.
The patio door leads out to our back porch and the door to the right of that is our room.
The bar is tucked away back in the corner...the picture is kind of dark.

The Bathroom - Well, this is probably the biggest room in the house. When they built the house, they really thought this room out and I love it! There is a room with a shower and tub in it, a separate room with a sink and toilet in it and the main part of the bathroom with a double sink, storage closet, whirlpool tub and TV! Too bad the TV only has one channel. However, I do figure that my Thursday nights can be spent in the tub with a bottle...I mean glass of wine...watching Grey's Anatomy.

Here is the crapper room...The main room...that's the shower room on the left and the hallway door to the right of that...TV, storage closet and entry to the wash room...Tub and I forgot to mention the little guys' sink!
The shower room up close...
Our Room - This is a smaller room, but we love how it turned out. We used an old dresser my mom had and painted it black and antiqued it. We got an old end table from a garage sale and I covered my old headboard with black fabric (this was the second time around). Kathy still needs to work with the curtains, that's just what I threw up there to see with the colors. We can't wait to get the boys' one yearictures taken this weekend to put more pictures of the cuties up.

The Boys' Room - It's the biggest room in the house (well maybe except for the bathroom). It has a huge closet, which Aidan and Brody were nice enough to share with their mommy. I love how the decal turned out on their wall. That was from a good friend at work...thanks Holly! They love playing in their room so far. There is a surprise in one of the pictures...can you find Waldo?

Happy Birthday Aidan & Brody!

Aidan and Brody's birthday was nothing to write about. Poor guys! We were busy packing up the last of the house, but we did manage to squeeze in dinner at Chili's and cake with some of our best friends. Here's a few of the pictures. Their birthday party is going to be this upcoming Saturday, so hopefully there will be more birthday pictures soon to come!

Aidan is excited about food!
Brody's cheesy smile...Being goof balls...The whole happy "green" family...Finally...Cake Time! Thanks for making the great cake Kelly!
