One night right after I had our littlest princess she and I were sitting in the bedroom, while Jon put Boogie to sleep in her new attic room. The rain was coming down hard, the wind was howling and the trees were bending just a little to far for my comfort. I don't like severe weather to begin with, bad childhood experiences down in Florida, so I was on edge but trying to stay calm, reading a book. All of the sudden..."BAM" scratch "BAM". My heart is racing, rain is pouring in the through the hole in the ceiling and all I can think is Jon and Boogie are up in the attic and the giant tree in the side yard has just fallen on the house. One call upstairs reveals that not only are they okay, but Boogie is still asleep as are PJ and the wee one.
Boogie's swing fort got upended and twisted up a good bit, the root ball was huge, although very very shallow.
This is what you saw out of the little girls bedroom window. PJ loved it because there were tons of finches in the branches and one day the neighbors cat even visited. LOL!!
So this is our little house before all the work began. Come back tomorrow to see what it looks like all spruced up. :D Oh and in case your wondering, our fantastic insurance also paid to have Boogie's swing set replaced since it was so twisted up. Wait till you see what she got. Remember check back tomorrow to see more.
