First glimpse of our new house

With six kids, sunshine beckoning, monsterous laundry piles, schoolwork and everyday chores/errands the unpacking process is not going as fast as I would like. So I'm going to give you a view of the outside of our house!


This is a little fort my husband is building with some extra wood we had from a previous project. I love that he's handy like that :)


This is the view from our living room. That water in the distance is the Puget Sound and that white speck between the trees is a ferry boat.

Here is the fireplace, which I wanted to include because it's much better than the one at the last house. I'm not sure how exactly but it has some sort of fan or air vacuum or something that makes getting a fire started super easy!!! I LOVE it!

Well, that's it for photos for today. I did make a lot of progress unpacking yesterday since it was the first day that we've been able to stay home the entire day. Today should be about the same and the weather man is predicting sunny days all week so the kids can play outside...life's feeling good!

I sure love that house. Great view. And cool that Ian's building a fort. That's awesome. He is handy like that.

So, it appears that Ian is cut from the same bolt of cloth that Dave is cut from! And we all know how perfect Dave is!!! lol!!!

What a gorgeous house! I'd love to visit! I've always deeply loved the Puget Sound...it sort of reminds me of where I'm from, in a way.

I love it all!

Thanks for the pictures.
