House Update

As promised, here's a little house add-on update:

Last week, after taking down the fence and cleaning out and moving two storage sheds, we were finally ready for the footing to be dug and poured...
During the digging process, our DSL and phone line was cut, but thankfully they are fixed now!  Whew.  Can't go without the DSL! (I was having blogging/facebooking withdraws)
The next phase is setting the forms for the foundation.  *fingers crossed* Hopefully that will happen in the next week or so.  We have a nasty looking forecast this week here in NE Oklahoma, lots of rain and severe storms predicted...so, we'll see how it goes.  I think it will finally seem real to me when there are walls up! 

How was every one's Mother's Day?  Mine was fantastic!  Isaiah got me a New Moon lunchbox, a new Edward and Bella bookmark, a Twilight bracelet, and a new necklace!  Does he know his momma or what?! I hope you all had a wonderful day!

I hope we DON'T get the severe weather they are predicting!

How exciting!!! I can't wait to see it all done. So glad you got the DSL fixed, whew! Jamison made me a card and it had Twilight on the top. That is so funny since I've only seen it once. Glad you got a bunch of cool stuff (love the lunch box).

Yes, Isaiah does know his Mommy, what a great boy you've got there!
