Playing with Trees

Remember I told you a couple days ago that a big tree fell in our yard with those killer storms last week? Well today some wonderful men from our Sunday School class at church came over to assist in cutting it down and hauling away the debris.
This is what it looked like when we started.......
Sweetness was hard at work, after the chain saws got to work.

This is Frank, our awesome Sunday School teacher, and just plain great guy!

And newlywed Dwayne came over to help, and made fast friends with Maggie.

And this is Jeff, the "leader" of the group today!!
After they got the part that had fallen on the ground all cut up, then they pondered how to get the big tall part down that was jutting out into the neighbors yard. They ended up getting ropes tied around it, and guided it down carefully, not taking out any fences! Good work guys!
Maggie just chillin outside watching all the action!
Here are all the guys, guiding it down.....
There she goes.....
We can't thank you enough guys! Sweetness could have never gotten it all done alone! It took 4 1/2 hours and 5 strong men to get it all done, and after a pizza lunch and good cold water bottles, we were ready for a nap!
So tomorrow (yes on Sunday) we go back for our 3rd follicle scan to determine when the egg harvesting will be. I will update tomorrow and let you know. I should have about 60 eggs maturing in there, as my abdomen is feeling so big and bloated, I will be glad when this stimming is done :)
Ending tonight with a scripture-
"Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve"
-1 Peter 5:2


  1. I couldve taken it down. Granted, it wouldve taken me...ohhhhhh...more than a couple weekends. But I couldve taken it down.
    Im hoping tomorrow they say the extraction can take place. Im not digging my wife having to take all these shots. Granted, that just means NEW shots...and Im going to have to give them to her, but at least it'll be on a different part of the body and give her stomach a break.

  2. Looks like it was quite a job. We are so thankful for your wonder Sunday School. Sean, Mom and I were planning to come help you next weekend (LOL), so we are sure you coiuld have gotten it done then.
    We are praying for God's will with your scan tomorrow and looking forward to abundant blessings!! Nana sends her love.
