Our Epiphany present!

I'm a little overwhelmed with everything there is to do since this is a new, never occupied house. It will be interesting how God works out these details-details such as getting a fence installed, garage door opener installed, window treatments for the entire house, and many other small details that a house usually has but we are responsible for as the first owners. We tried unsuccessfully to get the builder to add some of that into the deal, but took the lower price and agreed to get those things installed ourselves. Overall I'm happy with how the bargaining process worked out-I think I did better negotiating since this is the second home I've bought.
We can see that God has had this house saved for us since 2008 when it was planned to be built. Also that we came at the perfect time to buy a house and got the house for $89,000 less than it was originally priced. It is a good location for us, near church. It has most of the things on our original wish list for a house.
I will have work ahead of me to keep this 5 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom house clean. It will be a learning experience how to take care of the flooring and how to work the new appliances in the kitchen. It is a lovely house and it will be wonderful to make it our home.

Hey, remember the Christmas when Daddy put a BIG red bow on the front door to 2721 V. Avenue? Merry Christmas to us, indeed... and Happy Epiphany to the Pollock Family!
