Remember that new house post?

Remember that beautiful back yard I showed the other day? Justin said there were some problems with the septic tank and went out to investigate. His daddy, Michael, and Justin ended up borrowing a back hoe, a tractor, and spent nearly 2 1/2 days digging up our new back yard and replacing about 20 feet of pipes at the septic tank where roots had invaded. Thankfully, we have wonderful neighbors who let us borrow the equipment, family that knows how to get the job done, and it’s all fixed. Our back yard is worse for the wear but I am so grateful to be able to use the dishwasher, toilets, washer, and shower again!

The guys worked late after dark one night and Amanda even brought over the fire pit to roast marshmallows.
The best part of it all was Wyatt getting to see the heavy equipment in action and getting to ride the “pack hoe,” as he calls it, with Justin.

We were even able to get our Christmas tree Sunday night! It wasn’t decorated until Monday, but we still had a good time getting it. Jeb was excited to be along for the ride.
