Can you believe it's been 3 years???

Yesterday was June 16, 2009, and I got to thinking, on June 16, 2006 we took possession of our house! That means we have officially lived here for three years! I can't believe it! So much has happened in that time, changing jobs, deciding Brad should go back to school, medical issues, oh yeah, and having a baby!!! And so much has happened to our house in that time too! We have gotten new toilets, carpeted two bedrooms, gotten new interior doors, installed air conditioning, painted, redecorated, and done TONS of yardwork! And since we plan to be here a long time, I'm sure there will be many more changes along the way! I found some old pictures I took of the house when we were under contract I wanted to post, and I took a nice picture of how the house looks now. I think you will see a bit of a difference!!
This was the garage and part of the yard three years ago. Look how gross the driveway was!!
This is part of the front of the house. That's Brad's parents going in, they came to check it out before we purchased it.
And this is the rest of the front of the house. And in all fairness, I didn't have a very good camera back then!
Now, here is our beautiful house today!! Much better!! We look forward to many more years, changes, and memories here in our home!

I didn't realize how much had changed as you never notice the incremental changes when you see something all the time. It really does look better. good job!
