MOVE THAT BUS!!!!.....

ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was in our neighborhood this past week. A mom and dad with 4 kids adopted her sister's 5 kids after their mom died. The grandfather also lives with them, putting all 9 people in a 900 square foot house. The parents were sleeping in the garage with no heat (we're in Missouri and winters get pretty cold). The kids were sleeping in the bedroom and hallway, pretty much where ever they could find space. So, in comes Ty Pennington and his gang.

It was an awesome experience! It will air on Mother's Day so be sure to watch and look for me and Little Bro. We should be in quite a few of the shots as we were pretty close to all the action.

I snuck into the VIP tent and took a picture of the cake

Oh and if you promise not to laugh, here's a picture of me with Ed Sanders (Little Bro was more interested in the gator driving by and wouldn't look at the camera). I was so thrilled that Ed had his arm around me and was talking to me with that sexy accent!

I didn't get to meet Ty but he did eat my lunch. Mom had made deviled eggs and gave a plate of food to one of the crew members. He came back with Ty to get some more deviled eggs and all that was left was my plate she had made for me (I had to work Sunday morning until 1:30pm), so she gave him my lunch! That's ok, Ty can eat my deviled eggs anytime!

So be sure to watch on Mother's Day!!!
