It's only like 10 minutes from my house. They either started on THursday or They are Starting on Sunday. Now it's hard not to go drive over there to see what's going on. But I don't want to be like stalker chick I told Kev and he started gving me directions He thought I'd want to go (and i do - I am trying to restrain myself) I may head that way on Sunday since I have nothing better to do (oh and you bet I'd take my camera )

and in other great news Mike found me an Elmo today for Kate's birthday! This day keeps getting better!

and I found the fabric for the girls Holiday dresses!

Such a great day!

Cool! I want a close up shot of Ty preferably shirtless!! You should go down for the group that gathers at the end of the show. Maybe we would see you on TV. You could be famous!

on the Elmo and fabric!

How neat! They were around our area a couple of years ago and I really wanted to stalk em too but I refrained myself
My Mom took me to Cosco today to pick up some toiletries and found an Elmo TMX for Payton They were only $32.99 there. I hadn't seen them anywhere around here yet so my Mom snatched one up for her. There were only 9 more left on the entire pallet too. I can't wait to see it at Christmas.

NOO! That's not fair, especially if you aren't going to go and get pictures.

So here is what I have learned so far :wnk2:

The bus pulled ini today - the road is blocked off. The family went to San Diego. There old house comes down on Sunday. The house they are replacing it with is worth $468,000 (straight form the builder) From what I heard there are two tiny houses next to it and it's gonna look a bit out of place. (its a small run down town to start with)

Found the article I think it's so cool that they are here doing it for a family that really deserves it. This mother is raising her 4 kids alone now I love this show and the wonderful things they do for families.

It even has the address, I've gotta find a way to go.

well Kev is trying to contact IDQ to see if we can donate food to them and try and get DQ on TV

You can go and watch from 8-6 daily. They said the crew is really nice and have even stopped by spectators to sign autographs and take pictures. I guess about 200 people showed up yesterday for the Wake up call and they are ecpecting around 15000 on Friday when the family comes home.

Kev took the girls up there this morning - just to see what was going on. He said they don't really let you too close to anything - its all really blocked off. HE said from where they were they couldn't even see the house. You really HAVE to take the shuttle if you want to get closer.
