We finally had our house painted. It was absolutely horrible. Our house had just been painted when we moved in (almost 5 years ago), but it was mildewed and just disgusting. Caleb had tried several times to power wash it, but the mildew would come back within days. Below are pictures before being painted:

And now...............

We are so excited and LOVE IT!!! Also, I should add that Caleb picked out the colors all on his own!! He did a great job. We used 3 different colors. The ceilings are one color, the actual house is another color and the support pieces are a third color.
We also had the sprinkler system repaired. So, we need to get in the yard and do a little work so we will have pretty flower beds to match our "new" house.

We Are So Excited!!

I cannot recall a time that I have ever won anything....ever. In fact, I cannot think of a time that anyone in my family has won something. The last time I remember was when my sister, Ann (I think she was Brooke at the time...different story for a different time), won a blow up something from the local 7-11 for a drawing contest. I am not sure if Caleb has had much luck in the winning department either. Well, the streak was broken last night. We attended a fundraiser (auction) for Audrey' school and we won the drawing for a year's tuition PAID! Yes, that is right, we don't have to pay a dime of Audrey's school tuition next year!!!! WOO HOO!!

We are very thankful!! I included the following picture because it cracks me up! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
