Fabulous Fridays - Curtis and I volunteer for Extreme Home Makeover

It was such a blessing for us to be able to volunteer for Extreme Home Makeover and help build a house for my friend Amber Augustin!  Thanks to my friend Stephanie for watching my kids COUNTLESS hours so that Curtis and I were able to do this!  This show really is amazing.  Just Wednesday the original home was still standing and today...a beautiful new one in it's place!  Everyone was working non-stop to get things done.  The site is VERY busy and it is awesome to see all the people who have graciously given their time to help in this project.  Curtis and I mainly worked inside the home today sweeping up insulation, bagging it, and moving that and sheetrock to the dumpster.  Literally...that's what we did for 6 hours this morning.  But...I believe if you do something you do it 100% or don't do it at all.  Well...this verse that we saw on the studs today just about sums it up!  LOVE IT!  

If only everyone did this  all the time - AMEN!!!!
In the living room area looking toward the stairs!  Note the verse Jeremiah 29:11 on the stud on the left!
Guys on stilts hanging sheetrock!  These guys were so fast!
Curt and I in front of the house at about 11:00am!  Bellisimo!
This was the first pic in front of the house at 5:30 this morning!
