I watched and cried (alot) with my family last night. Such a beautiful and sweet family! And what a blessing to get to be a part of something so big!!!
I clipped a part of the video, if you want to see the whole reveal, you can find it and the entire show on hulu.com. Enjoy!
Don't forget to watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition this Sunday, December 6th at 8:00pm on ABC.
I drove down to Clarksville and photographed the family, got the prints, then took a carload of them back down at the end of the week with a few of my friends. We got to help them put the house together, but unfortunately that didn't include getting to hang pictures. It was still sooooo cool! We had a blast! I'll be very excited to see how they used ALLLLLL those prints! (they ordered a ton!)
The portion of the program where they show the pictures goes pretty quickly, so watch with eagle eyes! Any pictures of the family you see on their walls is from Tina Wilson Photography, complete with framing from Johnson City Custom Framing.
Let us know if you see it!
Here's the before and after of the house and some previews of the family.
3 of my favorite things (topped off with turkey and dressing?!! could it BE any better?).
It's the weekend of Thanksgiving and I am so thankful for so, so, so many things this year.
My top 5...
1 } An incredibly loving and supporting family
2 } Clients that trust us enough to capture the fleeting moments in their lives
3 } Employees that work relentlessly to make all of our client's dreams come true
4 } Vendors that appreciate our business and deliver an excellent product
5 } Good health and turkey
I hope you have too many blessings to count this year. Enjoy your family and fellowship through the rest of the weekend.
I just found this super fun idea for a birthday party on my friend's blog. She let her little girl have a chocolate slip and slide themed party and it made me teary to read what her daughter said during the party...she said, "Am I in a dream?".
As a parent, how difficult is it to make our children feel this way? For me, it's super difficult because it means a balance of not spoiling them with everything they want against doing things that will make life harder for me (like clean up after a chocolate slip and slide party).
I remember as a little girl, my mom worked all day/every day. One day during a summer break, she took off work to take my brothers and I to the carnival in town. She cooked us grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken noodle soup for lunch, then we went and had a blast riding rides and enjoying cotton candy. That day really sticks out to me growing up because I never expected it to happen. It made me feel the same way this little birthday girl felt..."Am I in a dream?".
The common thread I see in the two occasions is selflessness.
