Peak-a-Boo, I See You!

This morning, the guys broke through the wall to where our new door will be! Progress... ;)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to share with you a bread basket that was made for our Thanksgiving dinner at the Lupe. We had dinner with a few of our dear friends in Tembag. The night was lots of fun. If you are reading this, I want to know we are thankful for each and everyone of you!! God's greatest blessings to all of you!

Missing a Door??

Obviously there are no extra doors in Tembag.... We had to steal one from another house for our closet.... :D

Halloween Photos

Just a quick post of some Halloween pictures... There is a big adult party the Friday before Halloween, and then one for the kids on Saturday. We all had a good time... epically my oxymoron.... my "Angel" :D "Daisy Duke" won a prize for her costume... mostly because of the hair! ;) I still have the touch from 20 years ago! :)

House Update!!!!!

STOP!!!  If you haven't read the post below, DO SO NOW before you read any further!

So the morning after I posted my last house update, life carried on as normal as it can here.  I got the kids to school, did my bahasa homework then went to bahasa class.  A friend of mine across town wanted a video, that we had, so I took it to her.  We had lunch and then I stayed at her house until I had to get the kids from school.

Around 2 o'clock, I made the comment that she had a great view of my "dual" colored roof!  We both just laughed and rolled our eyes!  So at 2:30 I left to go get the kids from school.  The Roof was still a "dual" color roof!

On Thursday's, I teach the kids volleyball after school.  When that was finished, we went to the Coffee Shop to have an early dinner.  Momma didn't have anything ready to do for dinner! 

After dinner, we took the 5 o'clock bus home.  When I got off the bus, much to my surprise, I now see a ONE color roof!!!  I was totally shocked!! On two issues.... 1.  The roof is all one color!! and 2.  The time it took to do it!  Remember I left my friends house at 2:30 and it was still a "dual" colored roof!!!  It was all finished in 2 1/2 hours!!!  I am going to make a wild guess that that was the fastest anything was or will be done on the house!!!

I guess the "Love Shack" title will have to wait....

But wait......... As I walk around the back of the house......  IT'S STILL A "DUAL" COLORED ROOF!!

Those boys sure didn't let me down! ;)  I have the "Love Shack" in the BACK!!

Hmmm, Now I wonder what the natives will think when they walk the trail behind the house??? :D

Still singing... "Love Shack, Baby Love Shack!",

Our "Love Shack"!

Sorry Q & R (my bro and his wife), you can no longer have dibs on the title of "Love Shack" for your house!  One, because you are moving into your new house.... And two, because our "Love Shack" is way more shacky than yours!!!

Check it out!! We have a "dual" colored roof!!!  What the heck??? 

Actually we knew we were going to have two colors on our roof because of issues..... BUT  they told us it was all going to be red in the front and green in the back!  I guess they didn't want to open another can of worms by taking the back red metal sheets off the back of the house!  Who knows what they would have found??? ;)

But now, to top off the "dual"colored roof.... Look what else they are putting on the house!!!
Yup, a DARK green for the gutters.... added with the LIGHT green that is already on the house.... (check them out in the picture above) Topped off with BROWNISH RED down spouts!!  I am going to take a wild guess and say they are going to paint the down spouts but I really don't want to make that BIG of an assumption!! :D

Here is what our roof looks like from the top of the street.....  Enjoy!!

Now if anyone wants to complain about their house, BRING IT ON!!! :D

As in Chris' favorite saying, "You just can't make this $h!t up"!!!  And my new motto is "You just have to laugh!  If not, you will go crazy!!" 

Love Shack, Baby Love Shack!!  That's where it's AT!!!
