That is certainly major construction, but I am confused as to where your old house ends and new construction begins. Can your mom help you with a short paragraph of what happened next time? Does your house have glass ceilings? My estate often has construction, but nothing like that.


Old Kitty said...

Beautiful Amber and adorable brudder Max!! Awwwwww - we just love that you both helped at every stage of this sequence! My goodness - that is SOME mega construction - can't wait for the next bit!!!! Yay! Take care

Omd! I was laughing all the way through the tour! Hilarious, Amber! I think the raindrops falling on me head was one of the funniest comments! I needed this laugh! I'm thinking this is your folks new house? or new addition?

the teacher's pets said...

Oh and the pic where you said, "Nothing much to smile about, butt me will try anyway!" cracked me up! You certainly have to fake it til you make it! bol

Jans Funny Farm said...

You're right, it's a good thing you don't live in cold country! What a lot of work. Did you get paid for snoopervising?

ZOOLATRY said...

Amber, had we ever thought it was going to be THAAAT BAAAD we would have had you come live with us ... OMD how did you survive you poor little lady. So hap-pee it is over now ...

Oh Amber, that looks like a giant project. But I'm sure with your helping paws your humans can finish your new crib.

We are glad that you are giving us some time to Rest our EYES between bouts of his horror.
We are also glad that the work is nearly completed.. BRAVO on THAT.

Amber I am amazed that you and your siblings didn't stand on the curb with your legs out looking for a new home! We had our kitchen gutted in 2006 Mom sent me to live with my Grandpees for a month (they lived 2 miles from us).
As Arnold says, 'I'll be back'!!!
