Finally closed my First House

After signing for house construction in April 2017 and it was finally closed on 2/26.It was supposed to be closed earlier last week, but it was delayed as I didn't receive my final CD.
This is the first house we bought.We are Excited and Nervous as hell .
We did a simple housewarming afterwards.

This was reason why I was not aggressive in investing in stocks.I was holding it for down payment.Still few things pending like move utilities and getting communications to house.

My first Mortage payment will be on April 1st .
