Our First House!

We did it! We closed on our house this weekend! It was such an exciting time and I loved every second of it. Signing the papers. Getting the keys. Seeing the sold sign in front. Being carried over the threshold. Champagne and thai food. The moving truck. Giving our first tour of the house. Celebrating Garth's birthday. Christening our backyard sledding hill. Perfection.
