FIRST I have to show you some hilarious pictures of Darin taking our fire bush out. I LOVE this bush.. it's huge and right by our dining room window. In the fall it gets floresant red.. it is so pretty. But with the new room it had to go. The door to our master bedroom will be where the window is (see below). Soooo.. it had to come out. This is how Darin took it out.. totally genius and totally wiskey tango at the same time.
Put a chain around the bottom and pulled it right out with the truck. Darin was trying to salvage it for me because I make a comment like every day in the fall because I love it so much.
And it came out... roots and all!
And then the bush was drug to the corner of our yard. I was laughing SO HARD because of how wiskey tango it was.
We've (HA! DARIN) replanted it and we've been watering the heck fire out of it so I hope it lives! It was such a pretty bush!
And you can see Adie's littls house in the background so I'll show you an up close picture of it... it's got our siding, beige trim and burgundy accents.. just like our house. ANd I landscaped pink cone flowers and a purple lavender bush. I know, I know.. I'm a dork. My dad gave us some $ for Adie's first b-day so we used it to build her house.
It's still missing the burgundy door. She goes in there and peeks out every window and laughs! She thinks it's hilarious that everything is her size! We will put railing on the top deck probably next summer and add a roof. And put the slide coming off the deck. And maybe a climbing wall. Yeah, we are vicariously living through our daughter with this play house!
So yeah, it's an exciting day in our house with ground being moved and all. AND in an hour we leave for Chicago for a Cubs game! Adie is headed to aunt Natalie's and we are going to cheer o the Cubbies. So fun. =)
Pretty much THE most exciting news of the day...
Adie's hair is long enough for piggies. Took some hair spray and pretty sure she had a headache but man is she cute! (I know.. horrible picture but she was running from my camera that day... she looks like she's ready for me to frisk her.)
She looks so old. Sniff, sniff. My baby is growing so fast!
