First Time Home Owner's -- That's Us!

It's official! We bought our first home yesterday.

We took Jasper to the signing with us, which was quite an adventure. When all else fails, I stick him on my shoulders, and he's content. Jasper even got in a game or two of peek-a-boo.

We are super excited, and can't wait to move in and get settled in a few weeks.

Most of the interior paint is crazy -- I mean crazy! So all the paint has to be redone before we move in. I'll post the photos of the interior after the paint is up.

We patiently waited for our housing market to go down, and our patience paid off. Our new home (which is 2 years old) is only 1 mile away from where we live now.

It is in a quiet cul-de-sac with a huge backyard (by Vegas standards...land of postage stamp backyards) where Jasper can run free. We are thrilled to stay in the same ward.

Congratulations! Owning a home sure is exciting. I mean, you can paint the walls crazy colors if you wish. I'm happy for you. Good luck with the paint.

Horray!!! I'm so glad you are still in the ward too. I love you and would be sad if you weren't! I'm back in town now so let me know if you need me to take Jasper or turn into a painter. I have some overalls that just scream painter (might be because I have painted in them so much); )

This will be a great highlight in your life. The first home you own will always have fond memories. Good luck on everything!
