this week we have had the crew from extreme makeover home addion right down the road. they were doing a house for a family that was army and now the father and son are in wheel chairs not sure of why but they are and they have a new house. its been all over town all week. it really sucks cuz i am a fan of the show even if it makes me made some times. i would of loved to meet them. they had so many people they had to turn people away and stop taking calls just of people that wanted to help. i can't wait to see the show. it won't be on till april 15. it is only about maybe 10minutes at the most away and we seen nothing. kind of sucks

I love the show. I am a crybaby too. I cry at almost everyone of them. My son has CP and is in a wheelchair. He is nonverbal. Every time the show comes on, he brings me a box of tissues. It is so cute. It is so neat to have been done so close to you. We had one that was done in a neighboring town. It was shown a couple of weeks ago. It was the marine that was at the trade center and found the two guys alive. We couldn't wait to see that show either. We watch it about every time it is on.

I like that show very much!;) I'm a big fan of Ty and the gang, I like the way they help people. If it's really of charity, then I think the show is really good on raising funds for paying to all the expenses and it's repairs. I wish I have leaved right at your neighborhood, I sure am gonna offer myself for them, in case they are looking for volunteers. I think it is the best way to show my appreciation to the things that they are doing. And I'm just so proud of them!;)

I love that show! I got lucky one year and Michael showed up at a local home and flower show. I would of tried to go down there and at least hang out, when you stand in the background is usually when you get to meet someone or even get to help out. Keep a eye out for your local home and flower shows you never know who you might meet

Thats to bad that you couldnt be part of it but its great that they had so much help to do the house better than the alternative of not having enough people to help out. I have stopped watching the show recently because sometimes it just makes me to emotional (yup im a big crybaby) anyways it is a great show and its great to see how much the new houses help people that really need it.

yes i am a crybaby to. i hate watching it with the hubby. with it being a military town and them being a military family they had lots of help. i get up set sometimes i think they over do it some times with one family when they could split it and help 2 familys in need. just my feelings. thanks for the response

I love that show hun, we don't have anything like that in the UK. They always seem to make it in time and what they do is amazing for the families they chose. I will be looking forward to seeing that when we get it on cable
