And this is the reason for the delay in pics - here's our new home!
But, before we get to that...
Here's a pic of Tara in the old master bedroom
And here's poor Maybelle amidst the mounds of boxes
It's amazing the amount of crap you can accumulate, even in a small house
Of course, Maybelle wasn't always alone in the clutter, she had the big boy to talk to
I love this picture
Here's Jared spending his last night in the old house
And here's the last shot of the boy in his old room
And here's Mama in the cleared-out old basement
The last shot of the Fairchild family in the old house after everything's gone. It's so desolate and spooky in an empty house...
...of course now we have this nice big one to fill up
It's a raised ranch/bi-level, and here's a shot looking up into the living room. All the sticky notes are for places on the wall we need to touch up
Here's the playroom. It's on the lower level and is decked out in our favorite Hockey team's design
There's even a small door that leads into a huge secret play area that Jared can enjoy later
Here's a semi-cluttered view of the dining room into the living room (yeah, we got some unpacking to do). See if you can find the a) baby boy and b) kitty hidden in the picture
Here's a shot over the balcony deck
And here's a look from off of the balcony onto our refreshing new pool
Here's a shot deeper into the backyard, with Jared's future playhouse and Maybelle enjoying her wide open new yard
Looking back from the playhouse corner toward the back of the house
Here's Grandma and Grandpa Fairchild along with Cousins Ethan and Samantha visiting the new house
And here's a shot that has nothing to do with the house, but it's a picture of Jared's first visit to the Cider Mill at the Wasem Fruit Farm. Love them doughnuts!
