This is where I grew up...

But it didn't look like this - it was a plain white farm house with a green roof.
My amazing Dad put on a new roof, they sided it green, they built on, and he made the amazing trim around the exterior windows.

This is my Mom's front porch.
When we were little, my parents used to sit up here and have us girls race to the big pine tree & back.  Now that I have my own kids, I realize how entertaining this is!
