New House

Okay, okay. House pictures. I delayed posting anything until we were official and now we are official! After 3 and half years of what has felt like true wandering we are homeowners again! God has protected us and blessed us more than we can even say. We sold our home in WA right at the beginning of the big economic crumble and God has protected us from buying over and over again. While frustrating at the time, we knew it was smart for us to rent...we just didn't know how smart until hindsight set in. Now life feels a little more even-keeled and God opened the doors for this to happen. We could have never afforded this house just 3 years ago with the inflated market and finding a nice rental at this price these days (at least in phoenix) is impossible! We feel so lucky and so blessed.

These pictures I took while we were still looking at the house. Things are a crazy mess so until we are more moved in these pictures will have to do, just to give you an idea!

2068 sqft.
4 bedrooms/2baths
HUGE backyard (by phoenix standards)
The Wagner Residence sans landscaping!

 Come on in!

Living Room (staging furniture)

 School Room (off the living room) Kids are standing in the laundry room. Back door is just beyond them down that little hall.

Main bath

Master Bath

In this picture clockwise from left: (taken from Master) furnace closet; play room (or easton's room can't decide); straight ahead boys' room (maybe all 3); right= library/office/guest room; then linen closet. Hallway to living area to the immediate right but not in picture.

Back patio (part of it)

The farm

View from master br

The only thing making it possible for me to live in Phoenix May-October

Back door from garage. Gate to front.

Our park!

Front door

Pantry (if this wasn't here, I wouldn't have bought this house. This makes the kitchen big enough!)

Out the living room window.


We really, really love it. The house has been beautifully remodeled and so we don't feel the need to do anything cosmetic. So nice! We have an insane list of projects and it will be a work in progress for a long time while we make this place "ours". More house pictures to come as we get settled!

Oh Kaylee! It is AWESOME!! I am so happy that you will be able to truly settle in here ... FINALLY. I am just a tad bit jealous of that kitchen ... and the extra bedroom and pool would be nice too! Yay for your new house, may God bless you richly there.

can't wait to come try out the guest room and go down the slide! i'm just positive this guest room won't try and kill me by having a shelf full of toys fall on me in the middle of the night! :)
