Loving our new home

We love sleeping in our new house. There is still a lot to do and we are still taking trips daily to our old rental house in Westfield. We have to have all of our stuff out by Friday. My mom, Jason, my friend Jeanie, and I, took car loads from Westfield to Lebanon. Some days the weather was awful with high winds and a few days the weather was nice.

We moved all weekend. We had lots of help from family and friends. Thank you, it is very appreciated. We couldn't have done this without everyone's support. I will post pictures later, we do not have internet right now at home, so it is difficult to update the blog and add pictures

More of the finished dry wall

This a picture of the dining room wall going into the kitchen. We are going to re-do the kitchen in 1-2 years, so we did not re-do 1/2 of this wall. The kitchen is still 1/2 beat board, with the top half plaster. I am debating on how to transition this wall. I am going to the store this week for the paint.

This is our bedroom facing west.

This is the upstairs hallway facing west, looking to Will's bedroom to the left and our bedroom straight ahead.

Will's bedroom facing North first, then south.
