This is technically the dining room right as you walk in the front door, but we turned it into a game room. There's an actual 'game room' upstairs that we gave to Jackson for his bedroom, because we didn't want the kids walking up and down the stairs all the time to play since they're so little.
Those are the basics of the house. We haven't done much decorating since we're just focused on finishing unpacking. Up the stairs are 3 bedrooms and a game room (turned into Jack's room) as well as two bathrooms. Our master bedroom is downstairs off the living room in addition to another bathroom and the laundry room. It's a big change from our place in California!
Here is Izzy loving her backyard:
We also got a kid-sized trampoline for the boys and put it in the garage so that they can play on cold, rainy days here. They are obsessed with it! They're little blurs just bouncing away:
It has rained more in the 1.5 weeks we've been here than it did in the almost 4 years we were in California. We definitely have California babies, because they are so intrigued by the rain. Jackson hates getting wet, but Owen loves it. We sat on the porch yesterday just watching it rain.
And here's one of Mary just because she's so stinkin' cute!!
It's quite a lifestyle change moving from California to Oklahoma. In California your house is generally smaller, but you can get anywhere in a few minutes and be outside constantly. We had a big shopping center right across from our house with a Starbucks, CVS, grocery store, etc. if you just wanted to run out to grab one thing or a quick coffee. Now we're kind of out there in a little bit more of a rural neighborhood, so there's no running out quickly. Everything takes a little bit more planning. Since you're not close to anything and the weather's more unpredictable, we've spent a lot more time at home and making our house fun for the kids. Our neighborhood is great, though, and there are a ton of young children around. We need to go start knocking on doors to meet people, and we're super excited about Halloween here. I'm also joining a new MOPS group starting next week. I miss my MOPS group in California like crazy, but I'm hoping for some great friendships here as well!
We've bought a house, own a minivan, have 3 children, a dog, and we're both in our 30s…Jonathan and I have joked asking when did we become real adults?!
