WELCOME to our NEW HOME!!!!!

 Hi everyone and WELCOME!!! I thought I should go outside (before this monster storm hits) and get some shots of the front of the house.  I wish I could have every single one of you here but  I know I can't. You are all welcome though!!!! We are amazed at how beautifully the lawn has come in!!!!We had our 30 day inspection this morning and they found things that we hadn't thought of to fix/tweak. I LOVE this company (Ryan Homes). And no, they are NOT paying me to say this. It has just been a VERY good experience building with them. Our construction manager is having the lawn people come and fill in the ruts and reseed too.  I have had this mailbox cover for many years and couldn't use it at the other house so am glad I can here! For Christmas I have a different plan for the mailbox:)
 See that large rut there? It rained VERY heavily the day after they seeded and this rut formed. There are a few more too, that will be fixed.

 They planted 3 trees across the front. We actually have several leaves on the lawn:):):) Coming from a totally wooded lot where there were millions of leaves this is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Now we are approching the front door. The dining room window is on the right and my office is at the left of the door.
 I have my little pumpkin patch sign, 2 bales of hay and an orange pumpkin and a white one, that are both real! I do have a box of large faux gourds etc. that I can not find. Oh well, next year:)
 I just made my new wreath the other day. I love how it turned out. I will do a post on it a little later.
 I placed 2 lanterns and 2 pots of mums right by the door. And of course the Fall welcome mat.
 The rust mums are blooming and the hanging pot is FULL of buds.
 I used burlap ribbon for the bow.  It is still kinds stiff so I need to keep working with it a little.
 I used berry picks, sunflowers, acorn picks, pods and a bush of a leafy stem.
I will bring you into the foyer next.  We are getting pretty settled. Our neighbor came over today and was amazed at how much we have gotten done so that made me feel good. I have ALOT of boxes to organize and go through in the basement but it will get done. I do NOT want to wreck my back again so I am trying to go slowly......sorta:):) I will be linking up with these parties:
