New house status!

   
THE HOUSE IS OFFICIALLY OURS!!!

So, closing today went great. {Except the fact that my hubby had an expired license and didn't even know it...good thing he had a passport}
We went right to the house and started painting, while my AWESOME dad put in a new stove and fridge and new locks on the doors. {Thanks dad!}
We got the base coat in Abby/Makenzie's room painted and have to wait a couple days for it to fully dry, till I paint the stripes and add the chair rail.
We also got the living room painted {the orange room, if you remember the pictures I posted before}
Tomorrow I am on a mission to paint our room, Chase's room and possibly even get to the kid's bathroom. Whew, lots of painting!

We found out we need a new microwave too.  It starts, but doesn't heat anything{Oh darn...all new appliances} :)
We are getting some custom wooden 'bookshelf/cabinets' in our family room, so I can't wait to see those when they're done. Everything else is great and we can't wait to move in this weekend!

(When the rooms are done, I will take pictures.)
