Our NEW Home here in Georgia!

Well all, we did it.  We decided to buy a home here in Georgia.  This doesn't mean that we are not planning on moving back to Arizona.  We are still hoping to some day.  But we feel like this is where the Lord wants us right now and we want to enjoy our time here a little more by owning our home instead of dealing with a CRAZY or (like our current situation) a LAZY and CARELESS landlord who has a key to my house and feels he can show up whenever he feels like it and has no regard to privacy and no ambition to quickly fix anything.  Ugh!!!  PLUS a basement is more comforting when the Tornado sirens are going on outside.  Anyway,  we are looking forward to owning our own home.  We move in at the end of this month.  Just in time for Tim's mom to arrive to watch the kids for a week while Tim and I take a 7 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise!!!  We are so excited!!!  Here are ALL 36 photos of our NEW home we just purchased. :o)

2,500 sq. ft. of an unfinished basement.  We are going to add 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, a game room, a play room, a storage room, a work shop and OFCOURSE our own home movie theatre with a wet bar.  SO excited!!!  Let the fun begin!!!
 We are going to have so much fun finishing this basement

 This is our future movie theatre!  Can't wait!!!

 No, that is not in my back yard... but it is down the street and is our community pool.
 Tennis anyone?
 This is showing our current house and the house we are moving to.  Yes, we are giving up a huge yard but we are gaining so much more!  Like a basement!  When it is Finished, it will be AWESOME!!!  Both Tyler, Kenna, and Katrina's best friends live in our current cul-de-sac but they can walk through their back yard to the cul-de-sack where we are moving to, to still see them!  They are very happy about that!!!

We have lived in Georgia 4 years now (this month) We love it here. Its so beautiful and we have such awesome friends here. If only our families were here. They are what pulls us back to AZ and make us want to move back someday - in the future.
