Remodeling and My Birthday Weekend

We are remodeling at my office. And boy does it need it. But it's gonna look great when it's finished. I thought I'd share the progress with my vast readership. Ha. NOT!

Here's a before:


And some durings:






This is my office with a door before:



And now a window (which I am very excited about):



We still have a ways to go, but it's making progress. I'll keep you posted as we go along.

I had a great birthday this past weekend. I got to spend it with most of my kids and my hubby and it was fun. Bo had tickets to a fund raiser dinner here in town, so we went, and invited Cody & Jenny, Whitney & Mason to come along.






(The guy to the left of us sure is having a good time).

Then last night 3 of my good friends took me to eat, and I sure enjoyed that:



Today my boss & his wife (who are such great people) took me to lunch. Wow. What a great birthday. I also heard from all my siblings and my PAJ & Dorothy (who are also all such great people). It was great! What a blessed weekend. (Do you think I could have fit another 'great' in that paragraph)??

Oh, and one more thing. Here's my birthday present from Cody & Jenny & Corbin:


Aren't they cute?

Our New Lawn

Working on the lawn:


The finished product:


Looks good!


Now it just needs lots of water. The snow we got yesterday did help, along with the water sprinklers.

A New Lawn

This is our lawn yesterday:


This is our lawn today:


We are getting a new front lawn. The old one was sparce in many areas, had weeds, and different kinds of grass, so we are taking out the old and resodding with a new fescue lawn. Hopefully it will be much better.

I'll keep you updated!
