You know those days when you first move in and everything is still in boxes scattered all over the place. And we were truly blessed with the opportunity and many helping hands to do a lot of work to the house before moving in... ripping up carpets, assembling beds and making them up with freshly laundered bedding, cleaning...
First things first (especially with a house full of males): the kitchen.
My brand new set of dishes ready to run through the dishwasher for the very first time - Thank you very much, Mom and Dad!!!
Another very important first, especially if you know me: the coffee corner with our new (cheap, but works super well) coffee maker and Nova Scotian memento mugs.
Nothing like eating a home-cooked meal together as a family... even if the table is missing.
Trust a 3 year old to find a seat amidst the boxes.
Napping in the winter coats box. After all, it is super padded and comfy!
