Our House

I had originally titled this blog post "Adventures in Arizona" but the whole time I was uploading the pictures I was singing the song "Our house, in the middle of our street..." So I decided to go with that. ;) As you might have guessed the above picture is a picture of.........our house.
Below are a few pictures of the inside. My favorite part of the house is the master bathroom complete with walk in closet, which means our closet isn't so full that we can't shut the door anymore. Yay! Also, after doing laundry at a community laundry room for almost our entire married lives it probably comes as no surprise that the laundry room is another favorite.

What amazed me was that we went from a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment to a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom house with a garage and the house was still relatively full. How in the world did we fit it all into that small apartment?! All I have to say is that there was no space unused. Every corner, under every bed was as full as it could be. It is so nice being in a place where we can fit all of our stuff without tripping over each other.

One small little blessing, our check engine light kept coming on in our van and we could not figure out what the problem was. To make matters worse the registration was expired, so we were basically driving it around illegally. After a ton of stress it miraculously turned off and I took it straight away to get the emissions done, and somehow it passed! Funny enough on the way home, not even two minutes after I left the emissions place, it turned back on again. So we still have to fix it, but at least we can drive our car around legally now!

About two days after we moved here Asher learned to crawl. As you can see he has wasted no time and is now into everything, the little cutie.

What great little window washers we have.

Don't get me wrong, life isn't all rainbows and sunshine now that we are in a house. It has been a bit a of an adjustment for all of us. Andrew went to work on his first day sick as a dog with some flu thing we all got just days after moving here. We still only have one car that Andrew takes to work all day, and while he is gone the boys and I are trying to get to know people and make new friends, which is hard sometimes. We are also short one bed and a dresser for Tristan (who is sleeping with Carter for the time being), a dresser for Asher and a couch for our living room. Those things will come eventually and we are learning to be grateful for what we have been given. We truly are very richly blessed!
