Our New Home

We are so excited to introduce our new home! Well, it is not officially ours, but we are pretty sure of it. :) We close on September 24, which is our 5th Anniversary. Looks like I won't be getting that second band for my ring after all. But all is well. We only have a couple of pictures from the exterior. But here are the specs:
4 Bed, 3 full baths (Not looking forward to cleaning all of that space!)
Family room and sitting room (I call the sitting room the visiting teaching room)
Unfinished Basement, Heated Garage
Built in 1973 and still has all of the original everything! I have a lot of remodeling to do, but I am excited. We really only plan on living here for about 5 years, fixing it up and selling it. We are going to be in the same ward. We find it quite funny because we were looking at homes everywhere, but were drawn back to the ward. We think we still have some unfinished business to take care of there.

The view from the the front yardOur HUGE tree! We love it!
Our backyard is ginormous!

Hopefully, more pictures to come soon. Thank you all for your prayers! We are so excited to be homeowners!
