El Dio de la Fence

Yesterday we bean the process of putting in our fence. This process started with Scott waking up at 5:15 (God knows why) to make sure he was at Home Depot at 6:00 to rent the big machine in the picture below. He and his brother started drilling holes in the yard at about 6:15...sorry neighbors! it sounded like a lawn mower, but that still sucks when you're sleeping.

Allyson decided to help. She picked up the extra dirt and moved it to random spots in the yard.

We started using her as a measuring stick. If you could see more than her head, then the hole wasn't deep enough.

The next step was mixing the concrete to pour in the holes. Notice Nola in the picture below. I think she's sad because she couldn't put her big gloved hands in the concrete.
Then they put up the fence posts and that's where it stoped. Apparantly you have to let the concrete set up for a day or two. So now I just have fence posts in my yard (no picture yet). Hopefully by the end of this week we will have a completed fence... our gates are on order so those might have to wait till next week.
I'll post more pics as the process continues!

Whole lotta nothin'

Well, it's been ages since I wrote on here and frankly I think it's because Molly chewed on the cord that connects my camera to the computer so it's a lot harder to transfer my pictures. Scott just went to Lowes today and got all then fence pieces for our fence that we will be putting in this weekend! So excited! Except that they no longer sell the gates that go with the fence we got, so either we will have straight gates with our scallped fence or we will have scalloped gates that don't exactly match our fence...either way, who cares, New fence!
(anybody who wants to help feel free to come over and do so)
