We have picked back up on house projects over the past month! We got the lightning rod tree taken down a couple months ago. We had the house painted this past week, and it made SUCH an improvement to the outside of the house. The roof actually looks normal now, although we will get it replaced next summer because it's really old. Alex installed the fence in our back yard, and it looks great and serves the purpose of keeping dogs, and kids, in the yard. That way I can lay on the couch and eat bon-bons while they play outside unattended! JK.
