We had our walk through on Wednesday afternoon. The previous owners left this little message on the chalkboard in the 'Narnia Room'. It is a room off of G and W's room (appropriately entered through their closet doors) that was a storage room turned playroom. With chalkboards. And its own heating/cooling system. These people are amazing grandparents!
They also left treats for the kids in the fridge.
We got to show Bop and Gaga the house Thursday morning after we closed. Thanks, Wardles, for hosting us Wednesday night!! This is the side of the house, walking from the driveway to the back deck and patio.
Unloading Thursday morning/afternoon. Thanks, Tim and Cherie!
Gaga made a stop at Candy Land in Stillwater before they came down!

Dad and David had to run a gas line to our dryer. This is the crawl space (in case you care).

David, wishing he would have pursued logging rather than a PhD.....just kidding. Kind of.
We have a palm tree at the end of our driveway
We love you, Bop and Gaga!
David painted his study 'willow'. He didn't like the white and yellow look.
Trying to stay clean!
Here's the part of the tour that will make you remember how much you should hate moving. After many requests from many people, I'm posting pictures of our house exactly one week after we started unloading the trucks. It's really messy. Here's the study.
Front bathroom. Yes, the walls are sponge painted. You forgot how cool that looked, didn't you.
View from the living room to the front door. The basement door on the left is open.
