Desperate landscape is getting some desperate attention!

Our yard.... one of our biggest projects that we had to conqure is near complete.  It was looking especially terrible, after the windstorm took out the fence and the cherry tree. The Cherry tree ripped up sprinkler lines, and it was just a complete disaster!  The lawn was dying... and we had a major weed patch growing in our back yard. However it's looking much better, with the addtion of a new tan vinyl fence, and some intense yard work. This house will be market ready to go on the market in a few weeks. The vinyl fence should be complete by next weekend.

This weekend Bruce rented a Excavator to rip out stumps and do some other yard demo as we are trying to get this house put together to sell it. Bruce cut up the Cherry tree that had fallen over in the wind storm and took it to the dump along with some other tree stumps that we ripped out. We are gathering estimates on some fencing, because we lost nearly one whole fence line due the wind storm. So mother's day weekend in our household was all work and no play.

SURPRISE! We are having a baby!

As exciting as the news is.... it's really slowed down the progress on finishing our renovation. We found out the Middle of February that we are having a baby. So that means.... Jessica can't paint any more or do any heavy lifting. Bruce is having to do alot of the work solo. Which also means it will take much longer to complete. But the good news is... the Blue Firefighter bedroom... fit for a boy. Will be getting used in approximately 4 months because Baby Jenkins is due September 10th, 2012.

Backsplash Complete

We finally finished our backsplash after multiple trips to home depots across the wasatch front. We finally found enough sheets to finish our backsplash.  The picture is taken with my cell phone so the picture quality isn't great.
