Before & After Pictures of our New Home!

Busy Busy! Yesterday was "Media Day" with the USDA. What a nice event! There were 23 people total including friends, family and Chase's therapists. The representatives from the USDA spoke first about our family (it was so sweet!) and gave us a giant key and big hanging basket welcoming us home. We were then given a chance to share our appreciation (I made Dave talk while I held a sick Chase, of ALL days for him to be sick) followed by a front lawn photo shoot :o). John, from the Batavia USDA office brought a ton of cookies and drinks provided by his wife! YUMMY! We were interviewed by the Clarence Bee, now I have to find out when the Bee comes out. lol I'd hate to miss it!

Since we've spent the last 3 weeks doing nothing but fixing up the house, we figured it's time to share some pictures!


Disco Balls!!!

Our favorite new spot!

Chase in a bag! (A gift from the USDA):

Our other big news is that Chase's pediatrician referred him to Make-A-Wish. They will be coming Thursday night, with all the therapists, to help plan a therapy room for him! He needs a place to play where he can throw himself around without us worrying about him hitting his head on a table edge! We're SO excited!!!



  1. Y'all did a BEAUTIFUL job! I love it! And in 3 weeks!!?? Wow.. I'm gonna hire y'all to come down here and help us. We've been in our house for 5 years and are nowhere near finished. LOL! Disco balls and topiaries... oh my.

  2. Oh Heather, This is making me cry! I want one for Bug! I also want in home Speech Therapy and to be thin and smart. :)
