Crazy is as crazy does!

This is the after picture of the house. Dave has spent hours and hours digging out stumps and bushes. He is my hero!! Such a tough guy and so determined to get the stumps out himself. Slowly but surely the yard is coming together! Next on the list is to kill all the weeds and old grass and plant new grass.

This is the before picture of our house. There were so many trees and bushes you could hardly see the house and the back of the house was a jungle. This picture doesn't even show everything there was in the yard.

Just a little update.....

I am sorry I have been in such a blogging slump. It's just been a weird few months around here. We are all doing fine though. The kids are healthy, Dave has been working like a mad man, and I have just been trying to stay sane with some health issues. I won't even go into that. Just thinking about my health makes me crazy and frustrated.

I am loving the great weather today. It was a beautiful Sunday. We went to my cousin's homecoming talk and it was great to see family. I miss getting together with the family like we used to in the old days. I have such great Aunts and Uncles and is always good to be around family. I truly feel blessed to have such good family.

Right now my parents are in Utah spending time with my Grandma Smith. Yesterday was her 75th birthday and oh how I wish I was there to celebrate. She is an amazing lady and I love and miss her to pieces. She is my hero and such an example to me. I love you GG!!

Last week on Mother's Day I had the opportunity to talk to my little brother who is on his mission in Mexico. It was so good to talk to him. I miss that boy! It was just great to hear his voice and know that he is well and happy. Can't wait for him to come home. He will come home to 4 new nieces and nephews.....Creiden, Riley, Hunter and Cy.

We feel so blessed as a family to be where we are right now. We have such a great neighborhood with awesome neighbors! I really feel like we live on the quietest street in IF. Our ward is so great and I love all of my new friends and neighbors. We have been working on our yard like crazy, well Dave has anyway. He has dug out by hand all of the tree stumps and old roots. Sometimes he will work on one stump for up to 4 hours. He is amazing! Our house was vacant for almost 4 years before we bought it and it was so completely overrun with trees and bushes and it looked awful! The poor house and yard just needed some TLC and I guess we are the right family to do that. It will be so great when we have the yard finished and the inside of the house painted. We love our house!

Well, I guess I ought to go feed little Hunter.......who will be 8 months tomorrow! Where has the time gone? He is growing up so fast and is such a great little guy. He has been such a joy to our family and we are grateful to have him.

I will try to post some before and after pics of the house soon. Take care and I hope to post more regularly.......we shall see!
