Well, here it is! It took looking through 70 homes or so to figure out that this was the one we want! Actually, the story is quite miraculous...
I looked at this house while Kelly was in Seattle for training. The day he came back we had an appt to go look at it together, and the owner called to say he had to take it off the market because his wife was contesting the sale of the house (they're going through a divorce) So sad! Then I started to wonder, is this a test of faith and should I be praying for a miracle (the wife changing her mind, etc.)? or is it a sign that this is not the right house for us? Well, the more I prayed, the more I felt that the answer was I should pray for what I want! miracles happen all the time! So I did...and last Friday the house came back on the market! yesterday we made an offer and today we signed papers! yipee!!
I love the kitchen in this house...obviously it needs some new appliances, but it is big and wide open...lots of room for possibilities!
The living/dining area is also wide open...which I LOVE! Lots of space and this pretty mantle/bookcase dealeeo...oh, and there are hard wood floors under the carpet! :)
Although we don't LOVE the location of this house (the street is busier than we like) it does have a big driveway area for the kids to ride their bikes, etc. And if you look in the first pic, you'll see the "mountain" behind the house right in our back yard! I love that too!
Thanks to Denny and Gloria who showed us the 70+ houses I mentioned before and thank Heaven for miracles. Stay tuned for more and better pics without other people's furniture in them!
