The New House

Today we had our New Home Owner Walk through for our new home. We got to see the inside of the house for the first time since the rough in stage and we got to check over everything to be sure everything was done properly. We don't take possession until next week, but it was so great to be able to see everything in a pretty much completed state. (Also great so see that the graffiti and vandalism have finally been fixed.) This is what the house looks like from the outside. We will hopefully have a real cement walkway and final grade landscaping by the time we move in.. but I'm not keeping my hopes up.

The front entryway in the house. One of the things that I first noticed about this house, when we were still looking at show homes was the little ledge behind the door. I thought, "That would be a great spot to put my keys when I come home from work."

The view from the front entry into the living room and kitchen. The fireplace will be a great addition to the house. As well, there is backing behind the drywall that I can use to support a flat screen TV mounted on the wall. Too bad there's no electrical plug above the fireplace for me to plug my TV into.

Amanda's favorite room of the house, the Kitchen. I am really happy with the way the kitchen turned out. The cabinets and the appliances are spectacular. And Jaxon will have a fun time with the bottom freezer on the refrigerator. The best part of the kitchen is probably the dishwasher. It will be so convenient to have one that isn't me.

The view from the kitchen nook towards the front of the house.

A closer look at the kitchen tile and the nook. I really like the tilework in the kitchen too. And I'm excited for the huge kitchen table we're going to be getting from Amanda's parents too.

This is a shot of one of the kid's rooms. I can't tell which one. They're both pretty much the same. I think Jaxon's room will be slightly bigger than the new baby's room, but not by much.

Our walk-in closet that will mostly be overtaken with Amanda's clothes.

As a former electrician, I had to post this picture of the electrical panel. I'm sure I'll get to know this panel really well as I add some new plugs to the basement and rewire the basement lights.

Only one more week until we take possession and can start moving in. We will update with the final pictures once we're moved in and settled.

Art Class

Amanda has started taking Jaxon to an art Class. He is loving it. Despite the Growl on his face... thats just how he grins.. he really does enjoy himself. He loves painting and will ever get his hands dirty as long has he can go to the wash station right away.

One day Auntie Rachel come to art class too. She is helping Jaxon make his Sand Castle here. (In case anyone of you noticed how nice the nails are in the picture... that's not my hand... its hers.. my nails are never that nice)

Day out with Thomas

Thomas the Tank Engine came to Heritage Park and we got to go visit him there. Jaxon was so excited. He really loved riding on Thomas and wanted to do that over and over again... too bad you only get one ride!

Posing with Thomas

There were lots of other things to do there too. Jaxon didnt want to do many of the activities but he did get a really cool Tatoo.

Jaxon loves these boat swings at Heritage Park. He was on them forever! We had to pribe him with cookies from the Bakery in order to get him off!
