Let the fun begin!

It is all official now, we closed on our house this past Monday and have started doing work on it. Matt has gone over and worked for hours on the house each day this week. I spent my day off helping him by painting all the wood trim. All that is done and tomorrow we get to start the fun painting. We are going to start with the upstairs master bedroom. We are painting it Mochatina....looks like coffee with lots of cream. Our new bedroom furniture will be delivered next Monday so we wanted to get that room done 1st. Our next room to tackle is Taylor's. We hope to work on her's over the weekend. Our baby will turn 10 in 8 days and her birthday present is a room makeover. We would love to have it done as a surprise! The backyard is on our project list too. When we saw the house for the 1st time a month ago everything was still it is very green and needs some taming before the kids can get out there and play. Our real estate agent is also a general contractor and his crew is going to come in and fix the backyard over the next few weeks. Can't wait to see how it looks after! Here are some pictures from the Monday when the kids got to see the house on the inside for the 1st time.

Caleb checking out the fort, the trees need to be trimmed and the fort needs a little work but is soundly built!

A view of the backyard from the deck. A lot of those trees are going to be cleared out so it is going to look very different.

The kids getting ready to go in for the 1st time!

The homeowners left this truck on the is a shelf to hold cars, Caleb loved it!

Taylor in her room. We are painting it a beautiful pale purple called "whipped plum"

The kitchen, one of my favorite places in the house!

Our living room....I am in love with the stone fireplace!

These next 2 are views of the downstairs rec room which is going to be my parent's living room.

I love the hardwood floors in the house. I know you are so excited to get moved in. School will be over before you know it and you'll be sleeping in your new home. It's a wonderful feeling.
Can't wait to see it. Can we have playgroup during the summer?:)
