NeW HoME!

Well, so much for taking our time and "waiting" to buy a home! We made a decision after two weeks. We could NOT find a home in the neighborhood we wanted for the price we wanted in Allen. We started looking all over and kept getting farther and farther away from Dan's work. His commute time was about 45-60min each way. It was gettin way tooooo long! So.......
We decided to start looking back in Frisco.
After some prayers and tears and looking....we decided on this one. It is kind of funny. This is one of the very first houses Dan and I looked at back in May. We really liked it...but, the driveway is around the back. That was not a feature Dan was excited about so we kind of wrote it off. Now, after looking around for a couple of weeks/months (dan)....this feature is VERY common.
So now, looking at this home from a different perspective, we find it has everything we need and the driveway works great for our cars as well as a boat.
We are happy with the house, neighborhood and the ward. I think all of our hard work and prayers were answered! Now we can get started living and loving TEXAS!

It's Gorgeous!! I'm glad the stress of finding a home is over for you. It's amazing how eventually everything falls into place how it's supposed to be. Now you get the fun chore of boat shopping!!

ok, ok, enough with the "castle" stuff! It is smaller than our house in Utah and MUCH more SIMPLE!
We are doing a bunch of up-grades to the house FIRST....then a pool...prob about October!
We will be ready for visitors then!
