All Moved In

Well, we have finally moved into our new house after waiting for a few months for it to be completed. We closed on the house and moved in during the first week of August. Since then, I've been busy unpacking and getting things organized. We are loving the house and Taeya's having a lot of fun exploring all over the house. Everything is not quite finished throughout the house. There's still some trim that needs repainting, a mirror to hang in the master bathroom and some little odds and ends that need to be finished...including the whole outside yard and fence. Those will come but for now, we're enjoying being in our very first house! I haven't lived in a house since the one we rented in PA when I was 15. Since then, I've lived in apartments or condos so it is wonderful not having to share any walls with any neighbors and having a yard to call our own (even if it's not yet finished).
I took these pictures a few days ago so things have progressed even more since then. I will try to repost pictures in a couple more weeks when everything is more finished. We're nearly done decorating but I'm still needing to get some bookshelves so I can unpack my tutoring room.
Our master bedroom.

One side of Taeya's room. I love her room. It's exactly what I was hoping for. Now I just need to figure out how to make curtains for it.
Our front entryway and dining room. Excuse the messy table please. We chose to make the front room our dining room and move the living room next to the kitchen because our couch would fit better and it worked better with our furniture overall.

My bright and lovely kitchen. I am loving having an island!!! I've already used it for baking cookies, muffins and brownies. I love the dark granite and dark tile as well.

Our livingroom.
I still need to take/share pictures of the basement, laundry room, guest room, back patio and tutoring room. Oh, and the front of the house when it's finished.

Visiting the Animals

We went to visit some ducks, lamas and horses that live near us. Taeya loves seeing all of the animals, especially the ducks. She didn't mind getting splashed by them. She loved pointing at them and saying "quack, quack."

I love this one.
