WooHoo we have grass in our front yard. This past summer as we all know was a HOT one and chinch bugs had a feast on our front yard and pretty much wiped it out. This morning the guys from Lawn Rangers were here from 8:30-1:00ish. In 4.5 hours they were able to

1. Dig up all the dead and some living grass, spread out a chinch bug killer, level out with sand, lay down all new sod.
2. Lay down a weed blocker then the flag stone walk way from the drive way to the front door.
3. Remove the grass from between the driveway and left side of our house and lay down weed blocker and river rock.

They did an absolut awsome job and I love our new yard!!!
Now I just have to add some plants to the new flower pots.

Lily has a new bed..... Well Kinda

Today, I was next door (with the video baby monitor I may add) helping one of our neighbors while Lily was sleeping. I have done this before because I can hear her and see her at all times. Well, today's afternoon nap went a little different. I had the windows open and I could hear the home phone ringing and a little voice saying "Uh oh - phone's ringing" but the voice was not coming from the baby monitor. So I told Sandra that I would be right back. At that time the home phone stopped ringing and my cell phone started and it was Katie calling. As I rounded the corner to the driveway, I see Lily and Bella behind the wrought iron drive way gate playing. Lily had climbed out of bed, come down the stairs, out the back door, and entertained herself in the courtyard until the phone started ringing. I was a little shaken up to think what could have happened to her but seeing her happy and somewhat smug I couldn't be too upset. So after dinner, the three of us went up and proceeded to convert Lily's crib into a toddler/big girl bed. As you can see in the pics, she is very excited about the change. As of right now, it's been 2.5 hours and she's still sleeping as normal. It's going to be interesting to see what happens in the morning. In the last pic she decided to squat and jump off her new bed, just like at gym class.
