In the spring of 2005, I heard that the t.v. show Extreme Home Makeover was building a home for a family in our city, it didn't take me long to find out where and when!!!!!The Okvath family's oldest daughter had written into the show asking for some colorful paint for the Children Cancer wing at the hospital in Tucson, AZ. Much to their surprise they got a NEW HOUSE!!!!!
I went over to watch 2 or 3 days and was amazed everyday at the progress they made!!!! I was there when the furniture truck pulled up and the Arizona Diamondback Baseball Players all helped unload it!!!!!Sadly, the family has the house up for sale according to the internet!!!! This family has 7 children, a few more since they had this house built for them, I thought they had 5!!!! And they are young!!!!The electric bill alone is $1200.00 per month and the water bill is $400.00 per month and they just cannot afford to keep it. Doing a little bit of research, I found that several Extreme Make over homes have been sold. I think they should build smaller more efficient homes for these families!!!!!This picture was taken with out a zoom lenses, so TY is there he is just small!!!! He did not interact with the crowds much at all.
Paul DiMeo did stop and talk and sign a few autographs each time he walked by.
How did this picture end up looking like this????
Sorry about that!!!!!Paige and Paul were in this shot!!!!
She always wore something Pink!!! It was a rainy cold week!!!!!So if you look close you can spot her!!! I don't think her jacket looks pink though!!!
