I'll give you what you want...what you really, really want...***UPDATE***

As most of you know, we had our housewarming on Sunday and, as promised, here are some pics of the house. Neither Josh nor I thought of taking pictures when people were actually there...duh. We ended up having just over 30 people at our housewarming, including Nic, Tim, and the adorable Zubin, Michelle and Mark, Dolores and Shawn, Kathy and Joel, and Catherine.

We munched on finger sandwiches and a HUGE sushi platter, which not surprisingly was the first to be finished. ;) Oh yeah, and the chocolate fondue set which I'm in love with...

I think the highlight of the afternoon was having the A-Team (Josh's term for the adoption gang) sit around and sing the Eensy Weensy Spider to Zubin. He was absolutely mesmerized. (Have I mentioned lately how unbelievably gorgeous he is?!)

Anyways, I know you're not here to read my ramblings when there are pictures to be gawked at, so without any further ado, here you go.

Our very warm and deliciously yellow kitchen.

The rest of our kitchen.

Our living room and dining room, with gratuitous picture of Deuce.

Our den/African themed room. We're looking to add a large map against one wall.

A close-up picture of two African figurines that our good friends got for us. The two ebony masks on the end are from when Josh's aunt lived in Ghana.

Our bedroom, but I didn't include a shot of the nice walk-in closet. ;)

Dizzying pic from the top floor...down to Deuce's litter box.

Since the other two bedrooms aren't decorated, I decided not to show pics of them...give me until 2010 and you'll see Little Maple's room. ;)

***Secret Agent, since you asked, those purple things on the wall are blinds. They're not really very purple, they're technically 'merlot' and look a lot better on the window, than they do in the picture. We also have the same colour blinds hanging in the den. :)***

We had such a fun time and were so happy to finally be able to meet Zubin! He is the cutest!
Your home is inviting and warm, just like you, my friend.
Thanks for including us and, by the way, it's "Itsy Bitzy Spider"! Can I get an "Amen?" I hereby disqualify Nic from answering this plea. ;)

Catherine said...

It was so nice to see your new home and spend time with you and our other friends too. Thanks so much for the invite!

And sorry but I'm with Kathy and it's 'Itsy Bitsy Spider'. Amen!!

thanks again!
