See, this is my house.  They started last week and I am hoping that they come back today and finish.  We just have the front by all of those windows and also the one side (by our bedroom).

We are REALLY liking the RED that we chose.  My mom tells me that I look good in red.  I told her that was why we chose this that when I am standing by the house I would look good.  TOTALLY KIDDING!

Do you notice our not so lovely landscaping?  Ummmm....yeah....overgrown evergreen bushes that Rod finally took a chain saw to!  They were ugly!  This is a picture of Jared hunting for Easter eggs 2 years ago.  These overgrown bushes were in front of our house.  Do you see why they needed a chainsaw?  Does anyone know of a GOOD but decently priced landscape designer that they would recommend?

Oh, for those of you who might see Maggie and you see that shiny slick under her nose....  Nope she isn't sick.  That is something that developed after all of her treatments - we couldn't explain it but it was just this constant clear runny nose.  Well, I recently found out it is a really common thing with other neuroblastoma survivors.  Who'da thunk it?  For some it has cleared up after a couple of years.  Honestly, it doesn't bother Mags and if it bothers us we just tell her to blow her nose.    She has gotten to be a good nose blower.  :)

Have a fab day!  The sun is trying to come out here! :)
