Exactly 7 months ago today, on March 8th, we moved to Vegas. And today we began the process of finally moving into our house!
Oh boy it has been a long road. With lots of lessons and learning along the way. We are so happy to have reached this point. The kids absolutely love the house. Love it. We've heard things like "thank you so much for buying this house!" I picked the kids up from school and told them we were going to the house because I still needed to paint -- Payton squealed "yay! I love our house! Thank you thank you!"
Payton's 1st favorite thing about the house . . . Laundry chute.
His 2nd favorite thing . . . The chain lock on the front door.
His 3rd favorite thing . . . The 2 missing spindles on the banister between the dining and living room that enable him to jump back and forth between rooms.
I spent all of today prepping, cleaning, priming, and painting. That will pretty much be my life for the next few days. Whew, wiped out! BUT, I'm reminding myself that I'm not going to be annoyed by it, or complain about it. This is what we have wished and hoped and prayed for for the last year!
Tonight we also had our first dinner at the house - lasagna on paper plates. After dinner the kids took their first swim in the pool. And we decapitated the puppy piñata (see this post).
I love our place! There is a lot to clean-up and fix-up but it is going to be such a wonderful space for our family.
