So now you are wondering- why is this the Best Friday Ever?
Well first, the boy slept most of the night. Second, we went for bannock at the Health Centre. Third, all of the jars of jam I made last night all sealed (pictures to follow soon). Fourth, one of my favorite elders in town came running out of her house as we walked by and gave Hunter a cute pair of slippers. Fifth, we are going out for supper tonight with a great RCMP family. Sixth, we got word from the lawyers that all of our ducks are in a row for the house selling/buying. And now for the big number 7.....
Today is our last mortgage payment!! But Kara, you ask... aren't you buying a new home? Well yes, but guess what! We are paying cash for it! That is right! No more mortgage payments! We will own this new house outright and I am so proud. We have worked hard since getting out of University to pay off our huge (seriously huge, as in 6 digits) student loans. So my husband has been out of school since 2001, and myself since 2003 and we have done it. Paid off our students loans, paid off our first house and bought our second house.
Now let me tell you more about our new house. It is huge. 2300 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, attached garage, huge yard, wood fireplace, laminate flooring, ceramic tile.... Oh my it just has everything! Can you tell I am just a wee bit excited?
Kitchen: (I am looking forward to renovating this one day!)

Two person soaker tub in the upstairs bathroom (this sold me on the house!)
