Well I entered her contest and said that this is the first home that my daughter knew and it would be wonderful if she had a picture of the house for when she's older. Four people, plus myself won and I'm so excited. Life got in the way and I was having computer issues so it took this long to get the photos to Amy. I finally send 4 pictures to her. I was told we could create a bit of fantasy with the pictures. We bought our home when I was 6 months pregnant and it had no sprinklers in the front or back. Natalie's Dad and our neighbor Roy, who was 81 at the time, dug trenches and created a sprinkler system. I helped with the landscaping and even Natalie tried to help too. I told her I wanted roses added into the trellis and the porch chair to look like wood instead of plastic. I also gave her some ideas of what my landscape consists of. I know this is something that Natalie and I will treasure forever.
Here are the photos I sent her:
