8412 Culver Ct. Las Vegas........

Since we are moving to Texas in 1 month, I thought I'd dedicate a page or two to our wonderful home here in Vegas.  A home that we have loved and labored over.  Both Gary and I love to garden!  Gary has done most all the landscaping himself with a bit of help from the family.  When we moved into this home the whole backyard was one big dirt and rock pile.  It's come a long way baby! 

So Here's To 8412 CULVER CT. LAS VEGAS....

                                             Court said........"It seems like we always move after all of our fruit trees and gardens are the perfect size for producing great fruits and veggies!"  It's true!  This is the first year we have had this many blossoms on our pomegranite tree, and you should see our almond, apple, and apricot trees!  Carrie said she would bring them to RS and share.  Now it's on to a new house project to create a beautiful home for our family.  Change can be great if you set your mind to be positive and look for all the good that can come into your life and the life of your family.

This is the BARN that Gary Built!  We love it!  He calls it a shed but all of the rest of the family call it a BARN!
(to bad we can't take it with us.........)

ANNA RUTH.......

Anna has truely been a miracle and blessing in our family.  She was born 3 months early and only weighed 1.9 lbs when she was born.  She's a survivor!  Now that she is 17 and beautiful, I consider her a miracle!  Anna is confident and creative.  She has a great eye for art and continues to develop her talents.  She is her own person and has her on style.  She can pull off almost anything and doesn't really worry about what others think.  She has a sweet disposition and is easy to be around.  When we were asked to move to Texas, Gary and I were worried about what Anna would think because she would miss her Senior year here with all of her friends.  Anna was pretty positive about the whole thing and while she would miss her friends and family she said she would love the adventure and opportunity to meet new people and have different high school colors! (Bonanza's are brown and mustard yellow).  We love you Anna!

Grandma's old table.........

I have been wanting to refinish my grandma's old table and I have been really in one of those creative moods so...... Court helped me get it all set up in the garage and I went to Home Depot to get some supplies.  I love to make old things beautiful!  I love to create wonderful pieces of furniture that have either been given to me or bought at a thrift store or a garage sale (In other words "free" or "cheap").
The work began and Court and Bailey were just as excited.  Bailey rollerbladed around the table as he sanded the edges and the top.  It has been a fun project, and I can't wait to see the finished poject.  It also has 4 chairs that my sister gave me and they too are getting a face lift.

Here is the finished project!
I might put a clear topcoat on soon, we'll see.
