June 3-11, 2009 Digging For The Foundation and Basement...

It has finally begun... The Work on the new addition looks like this. There is a lull now that the hole is finished. The weather has not been good, and the workers have been busy with another project. Hopefully they will be able to continue soon... This needs to get done. When the new addition is complete, we will have added bedrooms and bathrooms, and some storage space. Nice!

June 9 and 10, 2009 Hay Bale Time...

First they planted. Then they waited for it to grow. When it was time, they got the tractor and the hacking extension and cut it all down. After letting it dry some, they got the tractor again, attached that green machine that makes the hay into bales. After the hay was all in bales, they got Anthony's red truck, loaded it up, and took the bales to sell to a local farmer who has a lot of cows. Hope those cows enjoy!!!

June 8, 2009 Welcoming The Newest Addition To The family.

We recently went to Anthony's cousin's house to meet the newest addition to the family. Meet sweet, little M... :-)

And afterwards we stayed to have pizza with M's uncle and aunt and cousins next door. Yum!
