Here are some front yard pictures. Above is the Alberta Dwarf Spruce that I trim into a spiral shape. I'm trying to keep it trimmed so that it doesn't get any bigger. I don't know why they call them Dwarf because that can get huge! The next pictures is taken of our front yard from the side. I'm trying to show you the 33 box woods they we keep trimmed into balls. Steph used to have that job. She would rather trim bushes than weed. She was quite good at it. It wasn't until she left home that we got an electric trimmer. She used to do it all by hand. I guess that is why she is such a good worker. She learned how to work hard from an early age.

A view of the other side of the yard.
The view from the front door side walk toward the neighbors.
A close up. Aren't these pictures exciting?
The view from across the street.
An update on the living room. I added a rod and curtains (or draperies as my first interior design professor insisted on calling them...never use the word "drapes"), a new lamp, a new rug. OK the rug is too small but it is staying there until I find the right one. Have any ideas? This rug will then go into my bedroom where it is the right size. The picture is hung a little high as well. I am always trading around art work and didn't want to add new holes.
A close up of the new lamp. I love it and found it at Interior Elements. I think it was a good price too. Always a plus.
Last but not least...dinner last Sunday at my brother's house. This is his waterfall in the back corner of his lot. My nieces Danielle and Nicole goofing around.
A lot of the Carr family. There...now you are almost caught up on my life and the happenings therein. I keep thinking about my dad saying he doesn't read my blog or the kid's blogs because they are too boring. Maybe it is just a man's perspective because I like reading everyone's blogs. After posting all these pictures of the yard, he may have a point. What do you like reading about?
