Guess who came to our town??? Extreme Makeover Home Edition! Yup, that is right. They are building a new house for a family 15 minutes from our house and 4 BLOCKS from my grandparents.
The Akers family are more than deserving. The 2 daughters Brooke (7 yrs) & Faith (4 yrs) have spinal musculra atrophy. Their 10 year old son has Crohn's disease. They home they had before was 2 story and most areas were inaccessible to the girls.
The family applied to Extreme Makeover before but didn't hear back so local people and businesses begain a community effort to raise $300,000 ot build a new house. They had collected $54,000 when Extreme Makeover chose them. The show received over 25,000 letters - more than any other family is the show's history.
The family returns on Thursday to "Move That Bus!" and the show will air as the second in the fall season.
The pictures above were taken by mommy's friend Sat. Ty Pennington is in the green shirt. Mommy got to go last night. These are her pictures. See how much they've done!
I was confused at first cause I recognized that Bobcat as the one Sassy Cat sent me to help trash my house. It is nice it is used to build a house after trashing mine so well! That was a great party.
