Some of you have asked for picture of the house.... here goes. I went a little overboard. Sorry!

Front of the house. I think I posted this once before when we saw the sale pending sign. Several people have asked if this custom. No, the house was complete and listed as an unfinished basement. The only thing we did was offer a higher purchase price and have the builder finished the basement for us. It probably cost half of what it would have if we did it ourselves. This is the view of the roundabout from our front porch. You will see later how small our yard is. It's nice to have this to play in.

This is the view of the clubhouse and pool from our driveway. We haven't used the pool yet, but it's nice. Once tee ball is over and we have a free Saturday afternoon we are going to check it out. It's not totally free, it does come with a steep annual home owners fee.

View of our backyard. You can tell by the weeds where our property ends. I hate to think what kind of creatures are hiding there. They will be building back there at some point, I sure will miss that view. Right now we just have two houses next to us and one of them has an empty lot between us. It's so quiet.
View of the back of the house. Thanks to Jaime Mac for pointing out the manly grill next to the kiddie water table.

View from the front door. To the left are the stairs to the basement, to the right is our bedroom, laundry room, and door from garage.View of front door from living room.

Sorry some of these are so dark, I couldn't get the lighting right. These next few are from the living room.

In the back right on this picture are the boys bedrooms and their bathroom.

Next are some of the kitchen. And Cooper enjoying popsicle. It's an extra large kitchen by no means, but coming from what we did have it's amazing. I have half empty cabinets, before they were all stuffed full.

A close up of our kitchen table. We bought a new one, our old one was tiny but we didn't have room for a larger one. This one is perfect, now we can have guests over for dinner.

Next up is our bedroom and bathroom. We bought new bedding too but I need to get a darker bed skirt. See what happens when you don't have a mortgage payment for 2 months? You go crazy and re-decorate your whole house.

Finally, the boys rooms. We did get to pick out paint colors for their rooms. Cooper wanted orange so of course he got new bedding. Cameron's is a total work in progress. I'm going to wait to get bedding until he gets closer to a toddler bed.

There you have it. God Bless you if you sat through all of it.
