The First Day
The first day in our home was surreal. Most likely due to lack of sleep, but also joy and excitement and the fact that it was Christmas Eve. This didn't hurt much either:
This was the view from our driveway, looking above the house directly across the street. I love that our For Sale sign is still there, since I never thought to take a picture with it until it was gone.
Another surprise: Our first mail!
Unfortunately, it was from the insurance company.
Overnight, the cats had fully inspected the entire house, and left all the cupboards open for us.
Cowboy H took all the doors of their hinges and began painting them (to cover graffiti)
And also put our bed together, so we could sleep in our actual bedroom!
And I started cooking our "Christmas Dinner".
Since we were both working the next day, Christmas, we stuffed our faces a day early.
And that was the end to the most perfect first day in our new home ever. One that will be remembered a long long time.
