Saturday was a big day! One of dreams, since we were married 26 years ago, was to put french doors in the south wall of the house.  We live down in a valley and have a beautiful view of the timber, but the little window we had really didn't let us enjoy that view.  Now.......we have one dream fulfilled!

The before outside shot.  We had to strip off the yucky old aluminum siding to the yucky old wooden siding!  In a few weeks, all of it will be gone, replaced with new cement board siding!

The before inside shot

What a mess!!!!!

The hole from the outside.  The dormer above the back porch, which will come off and be replaced with a smaller enclosed porch and a wrap around to the front porch, is what the finished siding project will look like.

Getting it ready

Moving it in

All set!

After outside shot!

After inside shot!  We just love it!!

Today is also a melancholy day for me.  It is the 1st anniversary of our little Adley dying in the womb at 6 months gestation.  She was beautiful and her short life meant the world to our family!  

Psalm 139:13-16 (NASB)
13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
