Madisons 7th Birthday!

We had a great day at Madison's Bday party! All of our family was here... lots of good play on the new playset with all of the cousins! We tackled tie-dying as the craft project and it turned out great! The kids had a blast and they looked so cool!

Thanks to Tiggi for her awesome Fondant skills & the help with the cake! It urned out so cute!

The Playset!

I have been promising that I would get pictures up of the playset that Jed built for the girls.... here they are! The process was impressive! It is so awesome having a handy husband!

Olivias first day of school!

so this is a few days late... I figured I better get it up here to keep things fair as the girls look at the blog all the time!
Olivia is LOVING school! She is often disappointed when on Tues and Thurs she has to come home with me after dropping Madison off at school. We had her orientation on a Thursday night. Jed and I went with her and helped her unpack her supplies ect. Later that night I told someone that she had her first day of school and she replied..."it is not school until I go alone"! She bounded out of the car the next morning ready to tackle the world! She is my little miss independent!!!! So glad that she is having such a great experience!

Holy Ty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could these pictures be any cuter??? I will have to blog all of the pictures soon. Extreme Home Makeover is in to town to do a house a few miles out of Freeport. It has been so fun. I was able to get to know a few people who are on the production team and have got a few sweet hook-ups. Today Jed and I were involved in a lot of the filming for the show and will hopefully be seen on the show as we are in the mass of people coming to demo the house and then the interview when Ty talks with the builder about the family in front of the house. It has been an amazing sight. When Jed and I got there this morning at 4 a.m. to work the foundation had just been finished. By the time we left at 4 p.m. the ENTIRE house was framed and the roof was almost completely boarded?? The old house was demoed and removed within about 3 hours.

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!
