Move that BUS!!

Today was the day that the Devries seen their house...I heard they were over-joyed and very happy. I did not go and see it first hand...darn it. I wish I could have, but I would not venture out in this. It rained ALL day and is still raining now. It is only 48 degrees out and very cold and muddy. Some were stuck in the mud with their vehicles, I will watch the news tonight to see it and the show in Dec. (that is what we have been told). Today, I heard that they were packed in like sardines, cold, wet and it was a loooooong day for filming...
This was Ty moving furniture out of the truck on Monday (not my pictures). The cast had the spectators just a roaring for the cameras... The Albert Lea Tribune, our area paper took this picture and the one below...
And this is Ty on Monday, when he was handed the keys. Very sweet, see the butterfly tile on the sidewalk (Susan Devries made that, the Mom), Ty placed the butterfly tile in place and he said, this tile just made this house, a HOME. Very neat! I can't wait to watch the news tonight.

Other then that, not much going on in my neck of the woods, trying to get my special order done...almost done. YAY, knock on wood. I hope ya all have a good night and stay warm. Toodles, ~Tonya
