K, folks. I got lots of pictures for you all today! First off, Little Sprout got a "tattoo" just like Daddy's at the local fair. She was so cute about it. She would climb up on Mr. Barefoot's lap, point at his arm and then at her own. She was unpleasantly surprised that it washed off in the bath....

Next, there are pics of THE HOUSE! It may not be ours yet, but Mr. Barefoot had to take the electrician over to the house to get some work done and he remembered to take the camera. He didn't remember to take pics of the upstairs, but at least I can share with you all a little bit what it looks like......

Kitchen, obviously. There is more of it to the right, and the wall behind Mr. Barefoot as he took this pic is two sliding glass doors facing South. Tons of light, I tell you!

Living room, entry, and stairs

Dining room

Family room in the basement

Side yard between house and garage. Those are lilacs there, in the shade. Smart homeowners, huh?

The fabulous deck off the kitchen. It needs to be re~stained and re~painted, but is very sturdy. It is huge and gorgeous!

Another view of my fabulous deck. If you notice to the far right, that is a hydrangea planted right up against the foundation and blocking a window.....silly people. Also behind the deck you can see that a recent storm took out two fence panels....great, more repairs already! Hehe

The back of the three car garage (Mr. Barefoot is so happy about that) There is a doggy door, so we will have to get a dog.

The side of the house closest to the garage....again with the stupid plantings. Who puts trees that close to the foundation? I mean, really. There is actually a flower bed here, but you can't really see it. I am looking forward to rehab~ing it and making it beautiful.

I am so incredibly excited to hopefully be moving here! Think of these as "before" pictures, 'cause I have so many ideas on things I want to do. I can't wait to get out in that yard and start digging, to haul out the paint brushes and rollers, to make it mine.

Anyway, thanks for letting me show off a little....

YEAH!!! Thanks for sharing the pics with us, BG!!!! It's great to be able to see a bit of where you'll be living. I can hardly wait to see how you improve on the place, once it's yours.
