Pictures, finally!!

I have no excuses to put it off any longer. I'm getting a bit more settled each day and now that we have our internet connection, it is high time to post pictures of our new home. Plus, I'm supposed to have this baby on Tuesday so I better do it now before it's old news, right? We are so happy to be in here! The pictures hardly do it justice. You'll just have to come visit us and see it for yourself. Until then, let's take a little photo tour:

Dining room

View from entryway
Kitchen view 1
Kitchen view 2 (master bedroom through the door in the corner)
Breakfast nook
Family room (half bath and laundry room are off to the left)


I'll sneak this one in here. I'm SO glad I won't be looking like this for too much longer!
Guest bedroom
Game room
I didn't get pictures of the kids' rooms and our room that are worth sharing. An empty bedroom is an empty bedroom, right? I'll post pics when those rooms come together with decorations, etc. The kids's rooms at least.
At this point I am patting myself on the back for not still being completely surrounded by boxes, but we have a long way to go. Hopefully it won't take too much longer to be all the way settled, but I'm not expecting to be done before our baby girl arrives. Moving is a huge project and I am thankful I have had the energy to do all that I have done. My big task now is to transform the guestroom from the dumping ground for boxes it currently is to something that my mom will be able to sleep in when she comes next week. As long as I don't go into labor tonight, I think Spencer and I can get that done.
Now that we are Texans, we are missing all of our friends and loved ones from the places we have lived and hope you are all doing well!

OMG your belly is HUGE! Otherwise you look good, though. Certainly not like a SIZE 12!

Your house is darling...can't wait to come see it for real.

That must be some job Spencer landed. I foresee student-grade housing in my life for years to come. Beautiful place.

I know we're taught not to be jealous of others, but I am COMPLETELY! I absolutely LOVE your house! From the outside look to your BEAUTIFUL hardwood floors (I love that color) to that awesome kitchen and that carpet that looks soooooo clean! I love it and I'm so glad that it's yours and you are able to get in it just in time for your baby to arrive! Good luck with the labor and all that! You're in my thoughts and prayers! Love you!!!

Rachel, you and Spencer have arrived. All your dreams come true. What a beautiful place! I hope you guys are loving it and Spencer is happy at work. Can't wait to see that baby girl!

Rachel! Your house is absolutely stunning. I am so happy for you - what a great way to celebrate Spencer's new job and MBA. You totally deserve it. I can't wait to see pictures of the kids rooms once they are done too.

And you are adorable pregnant! I'm sure you can't wait for your little girl to get here though. I can't wait to see pictures so make sure you or Spencer post as soon as you can after she arrives.

We love and miss you guys!

What better time to move into a big nice house than when you have 3 precious children to fill it! I hope we can visit someday, and you always have friends here in Cali to stay with when you want to do Disneyland . All our love, Julie and Carlos
