We finally found our new home! We don't move in until the end of the month but now I don't have to worry about it over Christmas.
It's only about 4 miles from the hotel so Jared can still bike to work, it's also close to church and a really great school for Aubrey next year.

It's the duplex on the left in this photo. There are 2 sets of duplexes on this driveway. At the end are 2 single car garages (we get one) on each side and then a common yard area with a picnic table and more orange trees. The 2 little trees in front of our place are orange trees and there's a tiny lemon tree in the back as well. There's also a couple huge avocado trees that are on the property line behind us that I'm hoping will drop some food on our back door! It's a cute little single story duplex with 1000 sq.ft. with a pretty big but older kitchen. The living room has a big bay window as well as a smaller one in the dining room (you can see it in this photo). There's a laundry room with hook-ups so we'll have to buy a washer and dryer but it will be nice to get away from coin laundry! The private driveway will be nice for Aubrey to play in, especially down at the end where the garages are - it's a round space like at the end of a cul-de-sac. There's a nice park just up the street that has a water park too and is right next to the community center. The area we are in is called Willow Glen and it has it's own little village to it. We are just south of the village by a couple blocks but on the main road of it - so it's in walking distance.

We could move in right away but we have to give a couple weeks notice to the moving company to get our stuff out of storage so that means after Christmas. As nice as it would be to be moved in before Christmas, it's probably better that way as Jared has to be on call Christmas Day for a couple hours in the afternoon and that makes it easier if we were all still here. He also works New Year's Eve and they have a big party in the lobby/lounge area of the hotel that we can come down for as well.
