most recent remodel pics

The new foundation was poured last week and the old porch roof was taken off.

and they tore out the old nasty shed on the side of the house. Yay! no more smelly shed! The feral cats used to live under it and you can imagine the smell. Yuck!

They removed the inside coat closet and created an inside opening to the laundry room. The outside door we used to use to get to the laundry was closed off. It's so nice not having to go out in the heat to do laundry!

our house remodel

These are the "before" pictures of our back yard and back bathroom prior to the remodel. We are expanding our master bedroom and bath, which I am very excited about!

They had to replace the old clay sewer pipes because they wouldn't hold up under the new foundation and they also had to remove the tree.

Geoff using his "new" shower, ha ha! after they tore everything out.

The tree ended up in the alley.

Gracie and Sierra and Jake had a lot of fun running up and down the big pile of dirt.

little me

My mom just sent these pictures to me so I thought I'd share. Aren't we cute? These pictures are proof that my hair was once curly and red! These were taken when I was between one and three years old. My sister Angie is 14 months older than me and my brother Danny is 20 months younger than me. My mother is a saint! I don't know how she did it, but I sure love her for it.

We are with my dad's mom in this one. She passed away as a result of a brain tumor in 1990 at the age of 60. I was only 16. It was so sad to think that my younger sisters and cousins would never get to know her. I know we'll all be together again someday and it will be a great reunion.
