We bought a house!!

Last week, we put an offer on a house and it was accepted! We move in in December and we can't wait!! It's a new home, and it is still being built. We still get to pick the granite, tile, carpet, and paint, so that is awesome, even though the cabinents were already picked out. They even changed the brick last minute to a brick that we like much better! We are so excited!! It's a little scary buying our first home but we know that everything is in God's hands and we really feel like he has led us to this decision. It was a little iffy at first if some things were going to work out, but on the day we were supposed to put in the offer, everything fell right into place! It was really amazing, because we had been praying for God to give us a sign that this was the right decision for us at this time. We hadn't really been planning on buying a house at this time, but we suddenly got the itch last month, and we can't believe it all happened so fast. Once we found out that we could get what we wanted for the right price and how low the interests rates are right now, we got into serious mode pretty fast. I am so glad that we can give Graham and great home and backyard, and I am SO thankful for my hard-working husband who does so much to provide and care for us! I am one blessed girl. Here is our family in front of our very first house!!!
