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.

Open Sesame

Jasper's latest trick is opening doors.

The last 2 weeks have been more eventful here at home, as Jasper now can let himself into any room in the house.

His favorite new hang out is a once forbidden zone -- the pantry.

This afternoon Jasper tried to make his great escape out the front door. He had my keys in hand, and that is as far as he got...for now.

Gotta' love the cute chunky thighs in this photo. Jasper's thighs (or quads, as Mike calls them) are the only place in his body where he has some cute baby fat.
