My weekend?!?!…

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

But, I CAN be grateful. Out of all that could have gone wrong – electrical, roofing, etc – the problem was plumbing, which happens to be my man’s specialty. What would have cost the average Joe Blow upwards of several grand in city charges, backhoe charges, and labor charges - only cost us about $180 and a whole lot of arm strength from my fantastic dad and Chris who both put in an entire day of hard labor. Many thanks to those who stopped by to lend a helping hand.




Sure Chris was smiling, he was in the backhoe while my dad was 6 feet down a hole!









Jessie stopped by to help out. Dad was in the hole, you just can't see him.



Chris' family stops by to help put the yard back together.


And that's it. If you don't hear from me for a few days, it's because I'm showering.

About your dad in that big ole hole......did he ever STINK!!!!!!! And we had a date that night. Let's just say that it was important for him to stay in the shower for a very long time. He really was glad that he could help you guys out, but next time .....can he be on the backhoe? :-)

Love always, mom

Actually, he took down the lights that night. Now if I could only get him to take down the tree...
