Our New House

Our new house is totally awesome. We have 5 bathrooms! My dad hates the staircase because it is super long! Luckily, I have my own bedroom:).  Right after I took the video below the shipping company came with the rest of our stuff.  Now my room has way more stuff in it.  It’s really fun when you have not seen something for a long time and when you start to unpack you get to see it again.

There are these weird hose things in each bathroom but I don’t want to say what they are.  The couches are not very soft but we have 3 of them. Jaron got the maid’s room.  I think that makes him our new maid.  There is no grass in the backyard 😦 but dad says they are going to plant some for us.

We’ve already made some friends here.  Today we went to the beach.  It was really hot outside.  The water was very salty and tasted bad.  The salt got in my eyes and up my nose.  It was really painful.  The water was as warm as the air but we still had fun playing in the sand and swimming in the water.  My friends’ dad caught a sea urchin and showed it to us.  It was black and really poky.

After the beach we went to our friends house and jumped in their pool.  The pool water was nicer than the ocean.  We are having lots of fun in our new place.  Tomorrow I start school.  School will be awesome because mom is our teacher.

  1. Wonderful bolg. One big suggestion is that you turn it into a book when you are finished your tour. It would be a wonderful keepsake. [ I’m a friend of Dee’s 🙂


  2. Baylie watched the video Lilli. She says your house is cool but you bathrooms are weird. Your yard is so small :-(. Baylie jokes that Jaron would be a funny maid.


  3. Lin, We do plan to turn it into a book. I just need to find a great binding company.

    Charla, the backyard is really small but there is a playground directly across the street and we have the free outdoor pool just a short walk down the road. Lilli misses Baylie though.


  4. awesome blog post Lilli!


  5. Super cute! Nice house – I agree though, that’s a super long staircase. Thanks for the tour 🙂


  6. Thanks for the tour Lilli. I think your house is great. Even the hoses in the bathrooms!!! Have fun at school and don’t give your mom too rough of a time! Can’t wait to hear more.


  7. Wow! I just caught up on the posts. The adventure looks to be amazing so far. I enjoyed Jaron’s Lego battle, but really enjoyed this tour of the house. I feel like I’ve been there.

    Please take us on a video tour outside the house I’d you can, I’m not sure of the laws of public photography in the UAE.

    I would love a more in depth tour of the back yard too.

    How is the spider situation? Icky. I’m so scared of those things.

    Much love from our family to yours. I will share the videos with the kids tomorrow.


  8. I may have failed at leaving a comment. If it doesn’t show up I’ll retype it tomorrow.


  9. Nope you didn’t fail. You need to have one approved comment before you can comment at will. Now that I’ve approved your comment your next comments will show up immediately.

    We do have to be careful who we catch on video but I think we can make videos of the area. I think we’ll capture some shots of the building here – the architecture is awesome.


  10. The video isn’t working! Any chance you can fix it?! We are hoping to move to AUS soon too!
