Been Busy

For those of you who do not know my wife and I now have a beatiful little girl. She is Three months old now and has just learned to roll over. She slept the first time in her crib across the house (with the monitors all hooked up and tested) just this weekend. Here are a few pics of our beatiful angel. :)

Cleaning out Ditches

I spent the day yesterday donating some time to help the City of Welch clean out 2nd street canal, which is a drainage ditch for parts of our community. Since the town is so funds limited this ditch has not been cleaned out for many many years and we were working with chainsaws and limb saws to clean it up. We managed to clean up about 70 yards or so of the ditch line which meant 3 large trailer loads of brush to the dump and another pile of brush still to be loaded, but we had some great help from the Craig County Jail Inmates and those guys worked HARD. A Special Thanks to them. The worst part of the day was getting tripped up by a couple vines and letting the chainsaw get against my leg, so I have so scratches that will need to heal up and a torn up pair of pants. If you live in a small community go down to city hall and ask what you can help with there is always something they need.

Todd agnew Concert

I got to hang out with Todd some at the concert that our church put on. Todd is an incredible person who is very down to earth and totally loves God. He did a devotional at the Meet-n-Greet which was a chance for 15-20 people to meet him personally. Totally blew me away that normally where you you kiss hands and shake babies or the other way around, but he took the time for a short devotional and prayer requests. Long story short I would suggest to anyone if you have the chance to bring Todd Agnew in to do it. It was WAY WORTH IT.

Ceramic Tile Flooring? How Much?

I have a great couple of buddies that will do just about anything for/with me even lay 440 sq ft of ceramic tile in 2 1/2 days. These guys do this for a living so that makes it even worse you never want to take time off from work to go exactly what you do at work. However Tweet and Joel are great guys and they really helped out on my grandparents rock house. We layed new tile in the kitchen, dining, back entry, utility, and bath room. It would have gone faster but we had to do some flooring work because the floors were not strong enough to hold the weight of the tile in a few places. Yea I know we are awesome. :) Special Thanks to our wives who helped do the wash down on the tile after it was grouted.

Roofing! Yea

Last fall I got the opportunity to help out Tweet and his little brother with a roofing project. We put a metal roof over the existing asphalt shingled roof. When we did it we added 4x8 sheets of Styrofoam in between the runners we used to screw to add extra insulation. I never did get the pics out so others could see so here they are in all their splendidness. :)

Remodel at the old house

Now that Christina and I are moved (for the most part) we have started fixing up the old house to rent out. This is no easy task as it needed a new tub and surround and a new bathroom sink plus paint pretty much everywhere and a little drywall patching because I'm bigger than I used to be and drywall is apparently thinner than it used to be. :) We still have a ways to go with the painting but some buddies came down and helped me get caught up on allot of it. Thanks guys here's some pics of our adventures.

Like everyone else I have gotten sooooooooooooooooo busy over the last couple months. We are still getting settled in to our trailer and we have been hitting and missing working on the garage, but it has been coming along too. I did so electrical work over at my grandparents house and allot of frozen water line work at numerous houses over the last couple weeks. Oklahoma houses were not built for -20 degree wind chills. Now we have made it to the new year. Our plan is to fix up the old house and rent it out. I have a couple buddies coming down this weekend to help with that and we should have allot of fun. I will try to get some pics up of the fun times we have been having lately.
