Decision Made: This is a big one

After 8 years in the Talon town home, we have made a decision….we are moving!

It of course was talked about several times and we even looked at houses a few times, but our town home worked.  This was a tough one, because we don’t hate our town home.  We actually really love it.  It has been customized down to the heated flooring, man cave work bench, and nook under the shower bench to hold Brett’s magazines.  The basement is nearly finished, just short the floor trim.  And I still haven’t showered in the basement bathroom which according to Brett has the best water pressure in the house.  Brett will probably tear up just reading this.

I think it came apparent to us that there are a few things that we really would like to have for the kids.  The biggest one being a backyard.  Thus far our kids have played on the street with their neighbor buddies Max and Lillie.  Every time a car comes to pull into a garage we all jump up to count heads and yell “car coming” to remind all the kids to go to a driveway and freeze.  People have been kind and attentive to our kids, but it would be nice to not have to worry about a car driving up.  So the other thing which is more for Brett and me, it would be nice to have a larger garage to store all the toys and yet drive a car in.  Those of you that come to our house know that you have to zig zag around toys to get to the door.  The garage is also a place that we hang out.  I am not afraid to admit that we are garage dwellers. 

Wondering where we are moving??  Well, not far and you may have been there before.  Still in Eagan and a house very familiar to us.  Yup, we are buying Brett’s parents house.  We joked when we were pregnant with the girls how we would swap houses.  Now it is happening, well kind of.  Bruce and Sandy are not moving to our house.  They bought a beautiful twin home in Eagan and our past small group girl, Jenna, and her friends are going to rent out the town home.  Perfecto!

Our new home…

3878 Canter Glen Lane 

Estimated move in…June/July 2012.
