We've come a long way...


It's official - summer is over. Fortunately, we finished painting the house just in time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful indian summer we are having. Hahaha, not so much. Poor Colin, the paint hadn't even dried when I told I was ready to start landscaping. He's a trouper and a really good digger. So now we have a painted house and some trees! We have come along way, but still have a ways to go. Landscaping is a foreign concept to me and I need help!!! So I am soliciting tips, ideas, and suggestions from all you skilled landscapers out there....

Here are some before and after pics of the house -

Before -
I can honestly say I don't miss the pink one bit.



The addition. The fence is in-progress.
View from the back. We still have lots of work to do back here but it's pretty hard to get much done with this cutie tooling around.

I just had to include this one from this summer because I can't believe that Gorgeous Great Grandma is turning 90!! What a looker!
