Our new home!

I am SOOO excited! We found a beautiful home in Wisconsin to rent! It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,466 sq. ft. home with a finished basement. It's located in a peaceful cul-de-sac and it backs up to a wooded lot. It's actually a conservatory, so it's a relief to know they'll never build back there!  And the best news is, we actually have the option to buy it after our home here sells! It's amazing to me how this has all worked out. I was all set on that condo that seemed so great... but would have been a huge mistake. A condo with 4 kids?? What was I thinking?? Thankfully God was doing the thinking for me, and had something better planned for us.

I was getting nervous and discouraged because I just felt we had to secure a home for our family, but nothing was working out. But everything just fell into place with this one. My testimony has grown so much about how Heavenly Father is involved in the details of our lives. This has been a huge reminder to me that when we put our trust in Him, things work out for our good. I just feel so grateful and happy! What a tremendous blessing.  I think this home is absolutely ideal for our family.
Here are a few pics of what will soon become the Hudson Haven...

Here is the living room (with a vaulted ceiling yay!) I just love the layout of this place.

Loft upstairs

Love this kitchen... especially the unique duel fireplace to keep us warm during those Wisconsin winters.

Cozy living room
Master Bedroom with a walk-in closet

Basement- so excited to make this a play/rec room for the kids!

Large room in basement.... we'll probably make this what we call the "inspiration room". It will be reserved for special family times, like family home evening, blessings, family meetings, etc. There's also a large unfinished part of the basement for Jon's tools, storage, etc.

And I really love this spacious and fenced backyard, with a slight slope for the kids to sled down in the winter.

Did I mention it's the second to the last house on a cul-de sac?!  In a great school district?!  WOO!!  I hope you all know if you ever come up our way... you'll always have a place to stay. Soo excited!!

What a blessing. And yes, it's true, Heavenly Father has a plan for us, even in the details. And don't you find His way is always better than ours? So glad things worked out! And for people like you, it ALWAYS will!

I'm glad you were able to find a better home. The place looks amazing by the way. You'll have to post more pictures when you guys get all settled in so I can see your decor :) I'll do the same on my blog...but i lost my camera. You always lose one thing when you move! And we haven't really done anything anyways. Our first project: use joint compound for some of the cracks, then paint the walls. Then maybe we'll get better furniture.

From the pictures, it looks like it has an awesome layout. I love homes that are really open like that (my big complaint about my house). And I'm jealous of that fire place!

I'm so glad that you guys found someplace that will be the right home for your family--even if it takes you away from the rest of us.

Congrats!! That looks like a wonderful place! And I totally agree with how amazing it is to see how the Lord works when it comes to finding housing! Sometimes it is hard to trust that it will all work out, but it seems to work out better than we could have planned ourselves. I also learned that lesson with our home purchase. Trust in the Lord!
Good for you guys! It looks fantastic! And your kids will love that yard! How wonderful!
Wish we were closer, so we could have helped! See you soon though!!!
