I keep forgetting to post a picture of our house since Matt has finished painting the front. I think we started painting it way back in the fall, but didn't make much progress all winter. Then this spring Matt has been working at getting it finished. Painting a house with eves like ours is a lot of work! It had to be scraped, primed and painted. He still has to finish up the trim around the windows in the back.
Here is a picture of our house before we even moved into it:
Here is a not so great picture of it that I took yesterday. It's hard to tell because it's kinda dark, but the trim is brown now.Saturday morning we relaxed and hung out around the house. Both the boys also got much needed hair cuts. After Ethan's nap we did some gardening. I accidentally posted the three pictures below in the wrong order. You get to see the "after" picture first :) Matt planted a meyer lemon tree and a bunch of groundcover (pink and yellow iceplant) in this patch of dirt we have next to our driveway.
Ethan doing what he does out front.... running around (and doing things he's not supposed to do... like step into the street). I love this shirt that Danielle gave him... it says "hello, my name is Trouble". It's so true right now! haha
Today we went to church and then lunch at Kopper Kettle with Matt's parents (you're surprised aren't you... hehe). Even though I am so very tired I chose to scrap today during Ethan's nap instead of napping myself. It's the only chance I usually have to do something "fun". Here is the page I did for our family album:
Hope you're all having a terrific weekend! I'm going to go talk Matt into taking Ethan to the park with me :) Hopefully we will get some good sleep here this week :)
