Exciting news to share (for those who don't already know due to Facebook)....we got a house!!! It is such a perfect house for us and we love it so far. 4 bedrooms, finished basement, 3 1/2 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen, and most importantly an inground pool and hot-tub out back! We are still in shock! Even more shocking is that the house sat empty for 4 years. We made a very low offer and after countering back and forth 3-4 times we got it!!! YAY!!!!
Now, for the pics. These were all taken during the walk-through. We've done a lot of painting and of course it looks different with our stuff in there. I will post updated pictures at a later time...but for now, here is our new home.
IN OTHER NEWS.....
We had our first (non-family) visitors to our new home. We were SOOOO excited to welcome our friends from Pennsylvania. I know it was a very long drive for them, but we had so much fun during their visit! We were able show them some of the things Wisconsin has to offer...including CHEESE, the Madison Farmer's Market (with naked bike riders), the FREE zoo, and our favorite fast food/custard place, Culver's.
Our baby girl turned 5 years old!!!! What five year old doesn't want her own pool party at her house? We had a blast (and the friends mentioned above got to be a part of it).
It is soo hard to believe that she entered our lives 5 years ago. What a blessing she has been. Five years ago this blog began with this post...
so much has changed since then and though I was wondering if the blog would fizzle out, but with an upcoming surgery (July 25) more updates and more blogging will be taking place. This is uncharted territory for us and I will have to revisit other blogs to see others' experiences with this. If anyone has advice, I'd appreciate it! During this surgery her nose and palate will be revised as well as a third set of tubes being placed.
And finally....at 5 years old, Adalynn got her first haircut. It was very spur of the moment thing. As I was cutting Camden's hair, she was begging for hers to get cut as well. I just trimmed the dead ends and evened everything out (it was very uneven but not noticeable due to the curls). She loves it, but first thing this morning asked "is it growing again". It looks so much shorter, but is definitely not as tangley and feels so much healthier.
And until next time.....blessings!
