Move that bus!

Extreme Home Makeover was in our neck of the woods this week
and today was the big unveiling!
We actually didn't make it to the bus moving event,
but decided to walk up to the house after dinner.
There was still a pretty big crowd out waiting to see the family and Ty Pennington.
Of course we had to stay.
Lulu loves the show and was so excited to be a part of it.

Not sure who this is, but I'm assuming he's someone pretty cool
from the REAL team. :)

And here's "what's his name?"

The darling mom and little daughter who were given the house.
Such a sweet lady.
And this is the cutest boy.
He suffers from a bone marrow disease.
He kept popping out and waving to the crowd.
Such a sweetie.

We waited for Ty for about an hour.
Just about to give up when a white SUV pulled away and drove right past us.
Ty was talking on his cell phone and turned and waved.
right at me.
Okay, In my direction.
I'll take it.
I was star struck and giddy.
Wish I would have gotten a real picture.

Tune in sometime in October for the episode.
It's sure to be a good one.
Picked the best neighborhood in the nation too.
In my opinion.
(And a national survey's. :))

Celebrating Razzles.

{June 20}

Thanks to all who came to celebrate our little Rockstar.
(lola, ray, boston, harlan, tyler, nate, george, ivy, taryn, hailee, & beauen)
And thanks to the birthday boy himself for doing all the party planning.
otter pops, ice cream, gummy bears, sugared worms, skittles, root beer, and orange crush.
I guess he caught on that this is pretty much the one time a year I let the kids get whatever they want. He did not mess around in that grocery store! No wonder it was such a good time!

And just for the record, he also picked out his own birthday cereal
Lucky Charms again!
Okay, maybe I persuaded that one a little bit.
Something about marshmallows for breakfast takes me back to a childhood I never had.
except for at grandma's house. :)
So good.

Happy party darling boy!
