Question Blowing Insulation around windows

I'm planning to blow in insulation in the ext. wall of my house. I'll removing the top piece of vinyl siding, drill and then blow in insulation. However, what is the easiest way to do the areas under windows? Should I drill thjrought the sheetrock from the inside? Can I maybe remove interior molding? Any suggestion are aprpreciated.

The inside molding covers the rough openings around windows and doors. So if you are intending to insulate between the window/door framing and house framing, you are better off removing the moldings and insulating from the inside. This is an awlful lot of work, regardless on how many windows and doors you have.
