Extreme Makeover: Farmhouse Edition

Jaxson and I went back up to Hubbard on Wednesday and helped Bud finish the makeover to his house.  Everything is done now and I have to say that it looks so much nicer and warmer.  I think that we all had a lot of fun with this project.  It’s a lot of fun when the change is so drastic like it was at his house.  Jaxson and I came home on Thursday in the freezing cold temperatures and are staying inside today.  I am sick of these below 0 temps.  It was so cold that my radio in the van would only blast music at a volume of 35, despite me trying to turn it down.  I’m sure glad that it started working again once it warmed up.  I would have hated to miss a ride home without hearing “The Wheels on the Bus” five times.

The boys trying to stay warm while watching the movie “Cars” or as Jaxson calls it “Tar Buvie.”
