The long awaited pictures

Welcome to my messy new house!

What you see when you walk in the front door.
The Living room- need to be painted and the border to come down. We don't have formal furniture yet so it looks like a dorm in this room!

Family room, needs to be painted and un"American"ized.

Kitchen - this is my favorite room in the house. Has a great view of the backyard through the bay window! We bought new appliances but it needs a counter and cabinet uplift. It's a little 70's country.
Sun porch - there is a horrible glare but this room is great for semi-warm but wet and yucky days, or when I just don't want to pooper scoop. The kids can play back here and still feel a little like they are outside. A deck connects to this room. It is right off the family room.

Playroom - used to be a formal dining room(see the end of the ugly chandelier?) Right now this is my favorite room, it is the most done and it's right off the kitchen, I don't have to worry about the kids at all! It needs wallpaper taken down and to be painted the colors in the rug!

Anya's room- also needs to be unAmericanized! We are going to paint it a variation of pinks. I would have cleaned it first but I had a baby napping in the pack-n-play in the corner! Anya has a bookshelf in her closet with her dresser and beanbag chair to make a quiet corner. She also has all her "too small" dolls in her room. Those are the only toys upstairs!!!

Kevin's room - this room is the closest to being done. His crib is there in the corner and that is Grandma's bed. He has little cars and trucks on his chair rail. His dresser and Anya's both fit in their closets so they have the whole rest of the room. Kevin does have a bookshelf in his room though.

Master bedroom - no one will see this until I have unpacked it, everything is still in piles. It reminds me of my room when I was a child, which you can ask my Mom or sisters, it was a health hazard!

That is the house in a nutshell! When'if we close in May I'll update pictures as it really becomes mine!


Kevin made himself useful by reading a magazine in a box in the dolly!

I am still unpacking, so I don't have any pictures and I can't take down the wallpaper(per Ed) until we close in May; so it's a little ugly.

We are in the house that I am madly in love with, and we can afford! Now hopefully everything works out and the closing goes fine!

The kids got sick the weekend we moved in so adjustment has been hard and I got a job doing in home babysitting for 2 kids, so my life has been a little crazy too! I will post pictures of our "ugly" house as soon as I find the camera and it is not all pictures of boxes!
