Extreme Makeover Home Edition is in the next town over

ABC TV's show Extreme Makeover Home Edition is just down the road from me this week.The family being helped is the Lutz family. The parents Grace and Jack Lutz adopted daughter Kathleen and 17 other children including 7 who have down syndrome.When their parents past away Kathleen took over the parenting responsibilities. She was soon after diagnosed with an inoperable cancerous brain tumor and underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatments.She is doing ok now but the house definitely needed help.

Sophia and I watch the show every Sunday together so when she heard they were going to be right down the road I couldn't get her there fast enough. We went today(crowds were terrible earlier in the week) and not only did I get primo parking within easy walking distance,we were able to get right in front of the house so I could snap a few photos with my phone-sorry about the quality

Before we got to the site they had a table where they were selling t-shirts and hats. Sophia is a hat girl  and being that it is 90 degrees and bright sun I bought her a pink baseball cap. Boy was I glad I did

Tracy Hutson, one of the designers walked right up to her and signed her hat. So sweet and friendly and super tiny.How lucky were we- no more than five people in front of us not even a real line.What is the chance of that happening? Talk about right place right time.
I hadn't brought my camera on Sophia's request but obviously from her grin she didn't mind having this taken!

Gabriella was at a party but made it clear she had no desire to come with us-don't want you to think I'm leaving one of my chickies out!

Here's the hat

We  gave a donation to the family which made me feel good and Sophia got to meet one of the stars of one of her favorite shows so she feels good so I'd have to say this was a pretty good day
