lot of good memories in there! Have a great weekend!

TBT

I know Christmas is long past but I realized I had a few more pictures from one of the numerous times I tried to get pics for our card. They didn’t make the card but they’re still pretty cute so how about a little Throwback Thursday?!

Yard update

Considering we re-did our front yard a full year ago, guess it’s time I showed some pictures of it, huh? When we moved into this house, the front yard was basically an overgrown forest – tons and tons of trees.

It made me feel like I was living in the dark so we decided to cut down those trees! It was a tough and scary decision but definitely the right one. We took down about 13 trees total – it was a big job! And my crew was loving all the action!

Maxwell’s baby face here…I cannot believe that was only 1 year ago. Also, Samantha’s face! ha!

It was a mess for several days – and I think made all of our neighbors really nervous about what in the world we were up to!

It was awesome when the trees were down all the light started pouring into our windows and we could actually see the sunset from our bedroom!

Once the trees were cleared, the landscaping came and we had lots of good supervisors!

We were so pleased when it was all said and done – and I think our neighbors were pleased too!

About two months later we also cleaned up the side of the yard to finish the project…

It was a huge undertaking but I’m so glad we did it. Taking out all those trees just opened the house up and the kids love to run and play in the grass in the front. A year later and still looking good…

Home improvement!

Playdate

Is there anything better than having a friend over to play on a pretty day?

Nothing better! Especially when you play so hard you do this after dropping your friend off!

Laser X

Happy Monday!

Maxwell had saved up some money and got to take a trip to the toy store several weeks back. He knew what he wanted – Laser X! It took me straight back to my brother in the mid 1980s and Laser Tag! This game is pretty much the exact same thing and just as fun…

I think Robert had fun reliving some Laser Tag glory days too!
