House pics, coming right up!

You asked for it, so here you go!  Please keep in mind that we are at the very beginning stages of filling and decorating, i.e. excuse the white walls and emptiness!
Our home:)
 They cut down our tree today, but we get a new one!
The backyard.
We have a lemon tree!
 Our - very dirty - pool and waterfall.
 Mystery fruit - does anyone know what this is?!  It's purplish pink and has tiny little balls inside.
The unfurnished living room/Tom's bedroom.
 Tom's XXL TV.
The kitchen and dining nook.
  Tom built this table all by himself!
Master/my bedroom....
hopefully it won't be this bland for long!

That's all.  We have a long way to go!
Advice is welcomed:)

Furniture, check!

First night alone in the new house!  Tom had a business trip to Santa Clara, so I entertained myself by trimming the tree, which is still a work in progress... Ornament donations are welcomed:)

We picked up Tom's new 55" LCD TV from Best Buy!  We did lots of comparison shopping and I think we got a pretty good deal.  Tom is happy, although I think it's too big:)

I removed a chunk of my thumb while grating cheese on our brand new (very sharp) cheese grater - OUCH!  Someone keep me out of the kitchen...

The search for furniture has finally come to a close!  We purchased the Brewster collection from Bassett, sofa pictured below.  We are very excited, although it won't arrive for 5-7 more weeks.  I guess it's the air mattress for another couple of months!

Welcome to the world, Baby Brayden:)
Congratulations, Crystal!!
