We can do it

Whew glad that's over!

Ok, I am back and with GREAT news. We found our dream house. And it is in fact our dream house (within the realm of reason of course). If I had made a list 6 months ago of everything I wanted in a house - this place has it. I NEVER thought we would get a home this nice. It is 100% the Lord that we got it. It is 4 bedrooms with a family and living room and a beautifully remodeled kitchen and even has air conditioning! God is truly amazing. Can't wait to show you all some pictures. We opened escrow this morning and if all goes well we can move in June 1st! Thanks you all for your support and prayers. This has been a stressful time and it is only God that got me through. We were just about to give up and make a bid on a house that we didn't want. Our top 2 choices at that point were one house that was smaller than where we are living now and the other was a house that a particularly gruesome murder had happened at about a year and half ago. It looked bleak! But in the last minute our dream house called us back and accepted our offer that they had originally rejected. Prayer works, guys. He knows the desires of our hearts and He proved that to me in all this.

Congratulations Kristin! That's fabulous news! I can't wait to see photos too. And June 1st is going to be here in no time!

Good call on the murder question, Lael. Really, how does THAT come up?

Congratulations!!! We are so happy for you! Well, I do know that, legally (atleast in California) it has to come up. They can't sell you a house without telling you that there has been a death, murder, suicide, etc.

Yep, murder has to be revealed as a part of disclosure. Wow, that's funky. Still, I'm not the kind of person that would have been put off by that. Maybe when the time comes I'll go get that house cheap since it'll probably still be on the market. ;)
Congrats Cain clan!

Yay! I'm so happy for you!
Wow - a house with a past? Too cool! I'm with Rob on that one. I'd like it. I could scare my kids into eating all their dinner and not getting out of bed at night. Oh, the possibilities!
