The Nadalet Family

Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.

Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

Sod Day / Front Yard

One sunny day in November, the 21st to be exact, was the day when we stole a lawn from Matthew's parents. Okay, so they were zero-scaping (landscaping with minimal water, thinks rocks & deciduous trees) and offered us their lawn for our front yard. We pulled together a motely crew and used a rented sod-cutter to get that lawn over to our house. And we were able to give a bunch to Lonnie and Lauriana as well. Now they have a back lawn! Here are pictures of sod - cutting day, and a few of our new front yard. [it is still a work in progress, but it is no longer a big patch of dirt!]

I'm excited for you to see your house coming along as it is. It's looking so much better than that day back in March when you moved in! By the way, it's xeri-scaping,l I believe... "xeri" being a root word for dry.

And Mom, thanks for the vocab - I always thought it was zero - for no water. hehhehe
