Yardwork - Round 2

So this is round 2 from my Tuesday post.

I just cannot believe how much different (even though it's still a mess) my yard looks...I mean duh, get the crap out and it's going to open it up but wow...I have a big yard!!

That big stupid square mass of rock and brick...GONE! Next I need to dig up those bushes and maybe replant them.

Look you can see my house!

This was full of overgrown crap...LOL All lined with stones...GONE!

There was SO much stuff along the side of my house too! There was part of a chain link fence right by my front door that was taken over by a honeysuckle bush. Yea pretty but a bee haven! Doesn't make it fun trying to get in the house!! GONE!
Here is all the stuff we've taken out! Can't wait to haul it off!!
Here is all the stone that has been taken out so far. That stupid square place from above had layers of stone, brick and sand. I wish I knew what's it's original purpose was LOL

It really was landscaped nicely...but again I don't have the time or patience to keep up with it! I want a yard!! Plain and simple!!! Give me grass and I'm a happy camper!
Here is a cool post I did awhile back. It will give you an idea of how it originally looked!

My Never Ending Yard Work

Yes, it is a crazy yard and I am constantly pulling/digging/ripping stuff out! I want a normal yard!!! See this post for what I was doing last year.

So last night we got a little crazy and look out all the crap around the middle section. There is still lots to do but you can see the before and after. Almost all of the bushes are gone, even the prickly ones by the shed!!
Also took out a huge bush at the corner of the deck and two bushes that were on both sides of the sidewalk to the house. They were all just totally out of control!

Again...still SOOOOO much to do but it's getting there!!!!! Can't wait to have a nice huge normal yard!!!

Miranda's Cheer Pictures

Her first game was so cute! She was the loudest and most out going...which shocked me!!!

Friday, September 11, 2009


Kyler had his first 8th grade game yesterday, while they lost 22-16 it was a really good game!

Miranda is cheering in her first game ever tomorrow! Since the boys get to wear their jerseys the day before the game, the girls were told they could wear their uniforms. For games she has to wear her hair up but she didn't want to for school. Plus today is picture day...LOL

I'll take a ton of pictures tomorrow and post them later!

Nothing much is going on here...just busy busy with work, school and practices so I thought I'd just post a couple pictures of Miranda rockin' her tutu that my mom made her.

Tutus are very big all of a sudden so Miranda emailed my mom asking if she could make her one. Within a couple days she had it and loves it! We are going to have her make on in yellow and black which are our school colors.

Oh and check the hair out...who remembers braiding your hair in tons of braids then sleeping in it so that you could have wild crazy hair the next day?? Yup...we did that too!
