and we have a frame

well kind of ;) I guess I should have titled this we have a partial frame. Yesterday I was not having one of my finer days as a mom. Little Miss had been up the night before for 3 hours and was refusing to take a nap (all of this for no apparent reason because she was not sick) and my patience with her was almost gone. So I loaded her up in the SUV, popped in a movie and enjoyed the somewhat peace and quiet as we drove out to the new house. To my surprise I saw this!!!!!!!!

I couldn't believe it. I so was not expecting to see this much work being done. Especially since it had just come a flood for a few days before and nothing had been done. 

So today we all drove out there as a family to check it out. 

One of my favorite parts of this process is seeing it all come together as a family. The boys are so excited and had the best time walking around as we told them what each room was. And little Sissy loved that she could squeeze through almost any little space.

Here's the kitchen

And the living room

Here looking at the back of the house

And here we are. 

I can't believe this is really happening for us. I can remember nights staying up watching home improvement shows, house hunter shows just talking about our dream home, our forever home. We talked and talked for years. Over the years our ideas of what we wanted have changed but our dream to have this home for our family was always there. There were times I never thought it could happen financially but we never lost hope and we never gave up. And here we are. Standing in front of the beginning of our forever home and life has never felt so good :)
