Going, Going, Gone

Here is our barn before Nathan started taking it down.
This is obviously half way down.
This is the log cabin that needed more attention to take down.

And this is Nathan's dad finishing off the log cabin. Now we just have to clean up all the wood and junk that was in the cabin!! That is our goal for this saturday.

A day in the yard.

This Saturday was dedicated to yard work. We needed to rake the leaves and rent a track hoe so that we could tear down the remaining section of our back yard barn. The remaining section was a log cabin so it needed more than a saw to take down. Luckily as we started out Nathan's dad drove by and came to help. He has lots of yard experience and lots of yard equipment to help out. With our huge trees in front we were excited and grateful for the help. He brought over his lawnmower that sucks up all the leaves, three trailers and an extra leaf blower. With his help we were able to have the leaves all cleaned up by the time our track hoe arrived. Stay tuned for before and after pictures of our back yard coming up this week-I know you can't wait!
Thanks Jim, you were a big help!!

Happy Halloween

This Halloween was packed full of friends and family. During the day my mom, sister brookann and Parker went with me to Gardner village where all the witches come out for the month of October. We went out to lunch to Cafe Rio and then I took Parker out trick or treating to all of our loved ones who I thought would want to see Parker that night. He kept his costume on all night without even crying or pulling on it. He however refused to smile at me for pictures no matter how big and dorky I jumped around my parents front yard! enjoy!!

ps this was my costume when I was a baby 24 years ago!!!
