They've only just begun
Alrighty, I've been tryin' to post since Saturday, but things just keep happening.

My mother-in-law is trying to come visit us again, 3 birthdays are about to hit next month with Thanksgiving thrown in between, so I'm preparing ahead a time, and I'm trying to keep up with school, but it's kinda distracting for the youngins (and me) when we keep hearing big machines knocking down trees.....which leads me to what I've been wanting to post about.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we're Breaking Ground, we'll here's where it's gonna be.

It may not look like it, but this is over a 150 ft. slope. Somehow they are gonna flip this mountain upside down, flatten it and build a cabin on it.


It's hard for me to visualize all this, but my hubby can see it. I can however show you the view we'll have. (I took these last Tuesday before the construction began.)


It's almost like touching heaven!!!


After many weeks months of waiting, this little guy showed up.

And ever since then they've been digging dirt and clearing trees.

Nothing too exciting has happened yet, but tomorrow the bulldozer is coming and that's when the REAL action is supposed to begin. In the mean time here's a few shots of what they've been doing.



I know it's not much to look at, but I did get some better shots today...I forgot to take pics yesterday:( you'd think I would have learned from my last experience to always have my camera. Hopefully I can update ya'll soon and stop by to say hello. I MISS EVERYONE!!!

Before I head off I wanted to share one last picture. It's not great, (I'm NO photographer) but I thought it was purdy:D

wow! what a view!! so, do you live next to this property that you can hear the construction? and when do you guys think the cabin will be completed? and your last picture is very purdy =]

i know you're busy. hope you're feeling like you're keeping your head above water. take care of yourself.

yes Diana, we do. It's actually on the same property, but we had to subdivide the property for zoning reasons since there was a house already on the property.

As far as when the cabin will be built, it'll depend on when they actually finish the grading...they guestimate 3 weeks, but I've heard too many "It'll only take....." and then ends up taking longer. After the grading is done they say it'll take a min. of 8 months before it's done, so hopefully sometime next year we'll be moved in...if it's God's will.
