A house is made with walls and beams, a home is built with loves and dreams.

Our house is finally starting to take shape and is looking more like a home every day. For all of those who were wondering, we did buy our house. We got a great deal that we couldn't turn down. Yes we still have our house in Michigan as well. We have dropped the price and are hoping that it will bring in a buyer. And yes we of course thought that it would be a great idea to have two house at a time of economical strife. :) We defiantly feel lucky to have this house here and that things have worked out for us so well. (Now just cross your fingers that we can get that house sold in Michigan!)

This last weekend was wonderful. My little sister Tessa came in to town so we have been having lots of fun. Friday all us girls went shopping then bought our tickets for the parade of homes. (For those of you not familiar with the parade of homes it is pretty much one big home show. Different builders or people put their homes in the show and the public is able to buy tickets to view the homes.) Most of these homes that are in the parade of homes are just magnificent. So it is fun to go and see them. We were able to fit in a few homes before our stomachs lead us in another direction and we went and had a great meal at Ruby River steak house. We laughed so much and had so much fun being together. Saturday we looked at more houses, ate more, and did some more shopping. It's been great! Thanks to my wonderful husband who watched the kids all weekend!

Holy Crap, your house is beautiful. What are you going to do with all of that room? You'll have to send some pictures of the inside once you get it decorated. I would love to go to the parade of homes, sounds fun. We miss you in Michigan!
P.S. I am just waiting for Steve to sign up on a new checking account so we can mail that too ya. He seems to be a little busy lately and but I'll bug him about it.

Great house! Post pics of the inside. How far are you from family? I am sure you are having such a great time making it your home. Miss you!

Your house is so cute, I can't wait to see pictures of the inside. Sorry about the little "flooding" incident. Nothing like that to make the already stressful move-in more stressful. Maybe all this focus on water will help with the potty training :)
Glad you got to see Tessa. Where is she living these days?

Cute house!! Congratulations on being the proud new owners of 2 homes!! Good luck with your home in Michigan - I remember being SO relieved when we finally sold ours - luckily our house in Utah got finished 2 months after the one in Michigan sold.

PS - Love Justin's post!
