It’s official; our family will always be a part of this house first built in 1952.

Oh my gosh, the concrete truck is bigger than my house! Now you know why we needed to add-on! My never ending HGTV episode continues . . .

I didn’t think pouring a slab could be so entertaining. It was really fascinating to watch. Aren’t you riveted? I guess it’s one of those things you have to experience yourself.

“Okay, Miss Enigma gently put your hands in the concrete. MacGyver wait. No do not touch the concrete MacGyver. Just wait and it will be your turn.”

“MacGyver, let me finish-up with Miss Enigma. MacGyver, do not touch the concrete. MacGyver, back away from the concrete. MacGyver, just wait! MacGyver, do not touch the concrete!”

“Are you kidding me. MacGyver, I told you not to touch the concrete! I told you to wait!

Well, there are no do-overs so that is where MacGyver’s hand prints will stay for ages to come.

This is the way we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands. This is the way we wash our hands when making our hand prints.

Whoo-Hoo, they took down the old screen door. Goodbye ugly, crappy old screen door. Out with the trash you go! Whoo-Hoo, I won’t miss you!

“What! What! What, is that horrible door doing back on the house?!” Our contractor was kind enough to return on Saturday to reinstall this door that I hate. My Man of Steel assures me it will be gone by the end of our remodel!

MacGyver journal entry, second grade, age 7

I have a confession. The vanity for my new bathroom has already been sitting in my dining room for three weeks. And yes, I’ve also purchased my sinks and faucets. Furthermore, I’m having a total love affair with my faucets. I get them out of the box just to look at them and caress them. I really, really do love them!

After I install and try everything out, I’ll share reviews and purchasing information. I am a major bargain shopper! After all, we were raised by Ma and Pa frugal. :)

Those are some cute hand prints!

I got rid of my ugly screen door this fall. Still waiting on the addition =)

I just love the hand prints! They are just precious. Looks like a great renovation is happening! I look forward to seeing the process until it is finished. Thanks for stopping by and visiting me! Have a blessed day!

A concrete truck came to your house!?! There is no way I could tell my son about that – he would die from jealousy.

Keep the updates coming! I love reading about the changes.
