The Painting... It Is Not Done Yet!

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

This summer one of our "projects" was to paint my parent's house. I'm sure you've caught my references to it for the last few weeks.

Well, at first glance you would think we were done. The house is now tan with cream trim and a dark rust red accent along the roof. It looks nice... however I would never paint my house with two colors of trim if I had to do it! We are still working on second coats on the trim and then trying to touch up and get the lines straight where the two colors meet.

I was not too happy to have my picture taken...

Kevin, Dad, and Annika here replacing the windows.
They got all new windows all around thanks to my brother.

I am the "trim queen" because I have the straightest hand (and I'm the perfectionist). I'm not a huge fan of ladders, but funny thing about that trim, most of it is at the top of the house. Ugh.

Cory spends most of the time with Grandma... and the puppies!

And when he wears them out...
Poor Cayenne!He finds Grandma's hat to wear!

So, we're not done painting yet, but I guess it's just going to have to wait until we get back from...


Woo hoo! As you read this we're on our way, to be back in a week, I'm sure with tons of adventures!

Not to worry, I have some random things scheduled for you to read while I'm gone! ;) But be sure to come back in a week or two for the saga of our trip... all the in-laws (and out-laws) and a baby!

Go here if you would like to play Photo Story Friday!
