We are moving! Finally!!!

We are so excited to get out of our little apartment with all the noisy and annoying neighbors and into our new big house! It's 3 miles from where we are now and we couldn't be more thrilled! Our official moving day is Saturday the 28th. Anyone who wants to come help can. We are getting pizza for everyone who helps. It's just perfect for starting our little family.

It has two bedrooms, one bathroom (our apartment has two so that's kinda not so cool), a huge office, a nice sized kitchen, dining room and a big living room. Not to mention a carport, a separate laundry room with a ton of storage space, and a cellar!
Oh and it sits on a acre of land! And every nook and crannie of extra space (closet or otherwise) has shelves for storage space!
AND There are no neighbors!!! Not in front, in back, on top, or for at least a mile either way up the street. We have the north portion of the 202 at Val Vista behind us, but it's far enough away that you really can't hear anything unless one of those loud motorcycles drives by.
But what's nice about that is that we pretty much have our own on ramp to the 202. Or at least the closest access to it, ha ha! The house itself actually belongs to my Grandad who we are renting it from. It was willed to him by my Great-Grandma Wolk who died in 2001. She basically wrote up the blue prints for it and my Grandpa Lou built it himself. So I am not only excited to live there but honored because of it's history in my family.
She used to babysit me all the time when I was little so I've spent a lot of time there. This is the house where I first learned to cook. Well, she was the first person to trust me with a spatula, a hot skillet and scrambled eggs, lol! She also taught me to quilt and tried to teach me to crochet but as a 7 year old with a limited attention span, it didn't stick. I miss her but I feel closer to her knowing that I get to take care of her house. I can't wait to raise my baby there!
