This Is It!... The yard Post I Promised LOL

So This is the yard, If I do the pictures right you will see what it looked like then & what it looks like now after all our hard work! :o) When we moved in the center of the yard was a huge jellybean shaped mound of that red lava rock, around that was uneven lawn with some plants scattered here and there. A dead tree stump surrounded by rocks,cemented together! A white picket fence that had seen better days, with an arbor and gate with Clematis growing out of control on it! By the front door was a small tree that grew little cherry/apples on it, Very Messy, it was to close to the house and the bees always scared us going in the door! :o) & the walkway was to narrow.
So If I remember correctly I didn't get very much done on it the first year we lived here. I might have got some of the lava rock removed and some of the other rocks moved. I think I made the walkway wider but other than that I really don't think I got much done. You will notice I put in some Halloween pics they also show a small transformation over time.
The second spring/summer I finally got all the lava rock and other rock removed! That was a TON of Lava rock! We dug out the stump,that was fun! I moved some flowers around & planted some new ones. Cut that tree by the front door down, there is a short story in that & I promise I will tell later! I made the walkway by the door much wider. I put in a fun curved walkway across the yard to the gate, yep the old fence is still here at this point! The back fence got blown over by the wind and so we had to put it back up and we decided to move the side gate back by the Wisteria so it could climb on the arbor we built over the gate & it started growing and blooming like crazy after that!
So the next year we took down the old white picket fence but I really wasn't feeling well that year and really didn't do much in the yard so it got weed infested and really started looking bad! Some of the pictures are a little out of order but I am sure you get the idea!
So this year when we started to get out there we knew that it was time to do what Devin had been telling us all along! Start from scratch! Till it all up and redo it! So we did! As you can see in the pictures we tore it all up and put it back together with a sprinkler system Devin did very well on! We are very satisfied with our almost finished yard. It was a family project we all worked very hard on together! It was Great! I still am working on the walkway and I want a new porch so my entrance isn't finished but I will hopefully get that all done this year and then we will work on the back, but that really isn't to bad right now. I want a swing & a swing set for the girls! :o) Shea wants a "jump" translation=trampoline but we will have to think about that I worry about safety! I hope you enjoyed reading my novel about my yard! LoL I will probably write more about my yard when I feel it is done, when that will be I can not say LoL! TTYL :o)

Our Lil Diva/Showgirl

Soon to be 1 Elaina So Cute!

New Year Update 2010

Well I have been really bad about blogging lately, I have all kinds of excuses, but I am really gonna try harder this year!
So Elaina my grand baby will be 1 on the 19Th the day after I turn 38, shh I wanted to stop counting @ 35! LOL I can't believe how time flies ex specially when you want it to slow down!
Some of you know that last fall I was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid. I knew very little about this condition until I needed to know about it. How we got to that point was I had suddenly started feeling weakness and trembling in my legs mostly. Drastic temperature changes like hot flashes and more perspiration than I had ever had along with my heart doing heavy irregular beats and sometimes very rapid under very little exertion. So I went to see the doctor and they did blood test that showed that my thyroid is producing to much thyroid hormone I think it is called thyroxin but I may be wrong. So for the past few months they have had me on a pill to block that hormone and another one that is a Betta blocker I think to protect my heart but I may have misunderstood so don't quote me. The first med they had me on to block the hormone after a few weeks made me itchy all over so we switched meds and so far good. I feel so much better, but the next step may be a bit scary they want to do a biopsy of nodules on my thyroid. How they do it is by inserting a needle into my neck into the nodule. I am a little stressed about it and I don't know if I am awake during this or not! :o( After they get my thyroid normalized and after the biopsy for what I am still not sure, they will tell me if I have to have my thyroid out and if I do I will be on thyroid hormone replacement meds forever! They did say that the way it is headed it would eventually burn out on its own but I would feel really bad during and after because even tho it is a small gland in your neck it is a very important one. I hope that my sharing of what I know fills in the blanks for my loving family and anyone else who may be going through this same thing. I hope I got my facts right 2! :o) Just to let you know the meds my docs got me on the first one was Methimazole 10mg that's the one that made me itchy so they switched me to Propylthiouracil (I know mouthful!) & the Betta blocker for my heart Propranolol.
So enough about me Devin has had braces on for 1.5 years so far and he may be getting them off this month! Very Exciting! Dave is working like a nut as always & bowling the same way! I will update that more later & maybe post a video. Krissy & Elaina are doing very good & Krissy is dating a guy we like TONS! & I am sure I will be updating that more later also! & Shealeah our youngest is 3 chats our ears off sometimes we know what she means and sometimes we look at each other to see if they understood were we did not she has her own language we think sometimes! LOL I hope that's a good update sorry it is almost a novel! I hope everyone is haveing a great year so far! Here comes Tax season! JOY!! LOL Love you all TTYL
