Finally, pictures of our new house

Well, after a lot of searching and haggling, I am finally pleased to announce that we found a house!!! We even made it before the tax credit ended, which was nothing short of a miracle in my mind!!
So, in complete random order, I am sending out a bunch of pictures. I have a lot of plans for the house, but they will require time and money, so that will be in the future. We are supposed to move in on either June 11th or 14th and we will be living in "temporary housing" for about a month. Morgan's job is putting us up in a condo and even giving us 50.00 a day for food. So, I am really, really excited about that! What a wonderful company he works for! We have been extremely grateful for their loyalty and insurance benefits during our bought with cancer.
this is the family room, the room that will house the TV and our brand new (craigslist) leather sectional. We are still trying to figure out where to put the TV... above the fireplace??? hummm

This is the living room, there are two of these
The other living room
the stairs. My kids think we are rich because we have stairs in the new house. Just wait until they have to go up and down them a million times a day.
One of the bedrooms..
One of the closets
The downstairs bathroom
The laundry room... no more doing laundry in the hallway. It even has a door that shuts.. how blessed am I??? yippee
the food storage shelves under the stairs... yea for food storage room!
The upstairs hallway
another view of the upstairs hallway
another bedroom
upstairs bathroom
another bedroom
the "sitting room" that will be transformed into my craft room...yippeee times 50!
The fireplace in my new craft room. Believe it or not, it has never been used. Well, duh, it is upstairs in a house in the Valley!
The master bedroom. You can see our view of the Kokopelli golf course lake in our backyard.
master bathroom and the tub of my dreams!!
View from our master bedroom balcony!!
One side of the backyard that we will probably turn into a garden next year...
the other side of the backyard...probably will be another garden or more green stuff and flowers
