It has been so fun to see how it all comes together and how it is not at all the way you think it would be! Likethe fact that they demoed the house AFTER the new house was totally up on a different piece of the property!
We have lots of great photos of the other designers, the house progress and the surrounding area that if full of production trailers, food tents - ect!
Had to at least get these up!

We have spent much time away from home this summer....much of which I did not document because I was to sick to think about packing my kids in the car let alone the camera. In July we were in Minnesota in the middle of the Arctic freeze. I think the high the whole time we were there was 75. uugghh. Really messes up my tan thing... but it was fun and relaxing. We got Madison a wetsuit and she was a great sport in the freezing water!
In July I also spent 2 weeks with the girls in Ohio at Ted and Danielle's house taking care of my sweet niece Teagan. Danielle had a major surgery and me, mom and the girls headed to their place to help out. It was awful to see Danielle so miserable but so fun to have Miss Teag! What a doll.
seriously...could I bottle her up???
smelling every last inch of my house.....
Bought playset online, paid for playset, waited for the semi to pull up on Aug 10th, semi never showed, called and found out that the site had been stolen and our money was in Beijing and my playset was non existent. Tears, sobs, yelling, throwing(remember I am pregnant and emotional) and several calls to visa laterand there is hope that the money will be returned. However, in the mean time we had to go to plan B to get the poor, sad, heartbroken kids a new set. So we bought a used set that needed a lot of TLC. It is coming along nicely. Power washing and staining have become a daily activity and Jed is in true engineering style remaking this massive playhouse that will be far better then the original figment of our imagination , nonexistent Beijing play set!
Much thanks to bridget and Claire who came and stayed at our house in the midst of the drama and helped a ton!!
And then there is first days of school, church and home commitments and my overwhelming need for sleep and clean air that keep me busy all day every day!
So we are back. I promise this time. I will never leave you waiting in suspense this long again. It was wrong of me...please forgive me!
