(It will be slightly different on the video.)
Forgive the "mess".
Here is our closet...nice and big.
Our bathroom (again, not very exciting).
I got the bigger boys new mattress/boxsprings the other day so I put the toddler bed Deacon was sleeping on in Finn's room for when he's ready.
This is the boys' bathroom.
It's the only one with a tub (which is hidden behind the door).
(Sorry it's a wee bit dark. The sun was shining too brightly. Not that I'm complaining.)

Okay, so here are the stairs from the ground floor to the first floor.
Once you reach the top of the stairs you walk right into the "main room".
Here you find our computers, tv, couch, etc. It's big and it's beautiful, really.
(the other half of the room)
If you look next to the blue (grey?) chair, you'll see a door.
That door is the door to a closet.
That closet we have turned into the boys' "toy room".
Behind the same blue chair you'll find a bookshelf and the boys' little table.
Not much to see there really.
And a lovely kitchen it is too. There's so much space (counter and cabinet-wise) that I was a little overwhelmed at first. I'm not used to having nice-sized kitchens.
The kitchen has 2 pantries.
In the first we have some food. Obviously.
In the second, we have our small appliances and the garbage can.
Finn has taken to throwing things away.
Things that usually shouldn't be thrown away.
Things like new boxes of dryer sheets and pot lids.
Hence, the garbage can is now in the pantry.
Directly off of the kitchen is the dining room. Breakfast nook?
Whatever. It's where we put our table, and it's where we eat.

Now that our stuff is essentially unpacked, and our house is, for the most part, "settled", I figured it was time to let you all see Walterland New Jersey. And since I don't really want to overburden the post with picture after picture, I've decided to break it up into a 3 part series, one part (day) for each floor. I have also taken video of each floor, so that those who want to maybe feel like they're actually here, being given a tour, they can do that. And since I'm the only one home right now (Josh is on a trip to Ft. Benning) the video tour isn't all that great. I guess I could wait until Josh is home and shoot it then, but I don't want to wait anymore. SO, without further adieu, I give you, the ground floor of our new house.
First, we have the front door, as well as the rest of our building (I guess). Upon entering the house, you find yourself in a little entryway...go figure.
If you look, you'll see a door in the back wall of the garage. This is the first (of many) storage areas the house has.
Now if you scroll back up to the laundry room picture, you'll see a door. That's our back door.
(Also notice how conveniently close the chapel is located.)
On (in?) the back side of the house are two more storage areas.
One has a few things since it also has the heating system and stuff.
Now, last but not least is possibly the best room in the whole house. It is certainly the best room on the ground floor at least.
And that brings us to the stairs, and the end of our tour for today.
