HGTV says they picked us because of our outstanding sense of community. If you talk to me often...then you'll hear me talk about my neighbors. They are awesome! We play pokeno together, we have a playgroup, we do things in the community together, we cook for each other...and just generally care for each other. I'm so glad to have good friends to share in this experience. Moving to this neighborhood was an answer to prayer. We moved after the babies were born and they have been so accepting of my family...when I needed good mommy friends.
John has been out to Texas once since the first day (w/o camera)...he took pictures and drew some. We don't get to see any design until the cameras are back sometime in January. At this point...all the taping and work on the house is planned for January with the shows to air in late Spring or Summer of 2012. It's quite exciting...and a little overwhelming. I'll let you know when the shows will air and how the progress goes along the way.
And hopefully I'll get around to a kid related post soon.
