Sidewalks and Fall Decor

Well, well, well....after almost 3 years we have sidewalks finally! Yippee!! I am so happy!! Couldn't have asked for better weather that day either! The cement truck came at 7:20am. David's Dad, Kevin, his son Nicholas and David were all there to help. Can I just say they did a mighty fine job!! I really think it makes the house look more finished. Now he will have some more landscaping things to do, but all in due time. :) They also poured a ramp from our double swing out doors in the garage so he can drive the lawn mower in and out. Pretty nifty.

My Mom also had the idea (I would have never thought of this!) to put Kaylynn's hand and footprints in it! So, that's what we did. It should have been a little wetter when we did it because it was rather dry and setting up, but we got them! :) Also have had my Fall decor out on the porch. Picked up those steel tubs at the Watsontown yard sales 2 for $8!! And I finally found a old country looking bench this week for $18. I am glad I held out for it, it's exactly what I've been looking for, for the porch.
The forms.
Truck's here! (along w/ ruts in our front yard!) But worth it!!
Down the chute!
Dad S. and Kevin screeding it. (David had to tell me what this is called and how to spell it.)
Nicholas took this for me.
Nicholas troweling. We let him put his initials and year in this.
Putting Kaylynn's footprints in!!!
Cleaning up.
Other foot! She's looking at David like what are you doing?
Hand prints. This was a little tricky. She likes to keep her hands in a fist.
Here they are!!!! Awwww!!!
I love Fall!!!
A little more dry. :)
Looking better and better.
