Finished Home!

Yesterday after church (and a nap for me) marked the end of unpacking!!!!  We are officially sick of seeing moving boxes and don't care to unpack another one for a very long time.  Hopefully our landlords like us. :)

Everything with the move went well, except for the shredded to pieces tire on the trailer that the Honda was on that Sean was towing behind the moving truck.  That happened in Live Oak, FL and caused a 2.5 hr delay, but God is good because no one got hurt and he allowed us to get to an exit that had food and a place for the boys to play outside. 

My father was a huge blessing and we are so thankful for all the help he gave us with driving me and the boys to TN in the Expedition and helping to watch the boys while we supervised the movers and told them where we wanted our boxes and furniture.  He also allowed us to sleep over at his house the night before we left and helped out with some of the trip expenses.  Thanks a lot Dad.  We are grateful!  And we miss you much! 

We are feeling much more settled and we are enjoying the country life already (even if we can't get pizza delivered to us).  The mornings bring 60 degree weather, which is good for back deck sitting with coffee, my Bible, and hearing cows mooing in the distance just adds to the country-ness. Much different from palm trees and Egrets. 

We think we have already found a loving church family and are pretty excited about that! 

Today brought more official-ness with TN licenses and car plates. 

OK, so here are some pictures of the new Brewner abode. 

This is Ryan and Hunter's book nook (and stuffed animal haven)


Living room (AKA the do not touch room for the boys!)



downstairs hallway

downstairs 1/2 bath

Office




Kitchen

back deck.  Haven't done the inside back porch....still need a table and chairs for that and also rockers for our front porch.  :) 



So far surprisingly the poison ivy likes to hang out here more than Ryan does. 


Our bedroom




Our bathroom

Ry and Hunter's bathroom

Playroom and suprisingly the other place so far that the boys don't go to much. 




laundry room

dining room....pretty special place because we didn't have one in our town home and didn't get to sit together at meal time. 

I spy an Aldergator :)


Hunter's room until baby is through with bunking with us.  Then Hunter will move to Ry's room, we will probably get bunk beds, and baby will be in this room.  Probably not for another 6+ months. 


Ry's BARE room on purpose and for several good reasons.  1.  He likes to play all night long and during all of nap if he has anything he can get his hands on in his room (learned that quickly in his last room and that was when he was still in his crib).  2.  Since his room is going to be changed any way when Hunter eventually moves in it is just sorta a transition room right now.  And yes, he does still find stuff to get into. Easy clean up though and very roomy this way.  He is enjoying his bed being a toddler bed now, too.

Not easy, just determined! That's what happens when you put two perfectionists together. Although not a great attribute, good for unpacking I suppose. ;) We are sooo glad it's all unpacked!!!! Thanks, we are enjoying our new home. :)
