Projects taking all the time

Well hello friends! Again I have been gone for awhile. Work is really crazy busy and then add onto that all the projects that we have been doing around the house. I have missed the time to update the blog and share some of what we have been up to with you all. We have been needing to replace some of our siding on the house and then of course the job that comes with it is painting. We had the siding replaced the beginning of June, but could not start the painting since harvest was just around the corner. Harvest means long days for Chad and since I don't do ladders that leaves me out for the high parts on the painting. So of course the time that we could start the painting was when we were having a hot spell with the weather and it was really hot outside. We did get most of the painting done in one weekend, and as of tonight we just have some touch ups to get done in the next week. While we were painting we also replaced all of the light fixtures outside. The first few pictures are of the painting of the house (including our paint crew the very first night)and the last two pictures are of the house as of today and the new lights outside.

I am really happy with the new color. It is harvest brown for the main color and melted chocolate for the trim color. The new lights really do compliment as well.

Last weekend I was able to get away to Maple Memories to get some scrapbooking done as well as a lot of laughter. I promise to get some pictures posted tomorrow of what I got accomplished as well as a few pictures of our family vacation to Branson. This year we took a quick trip to Branson with Chad's entire family and had a great time. We did a lot of laughing and in general spending quality time with family. I really did have a great time and would do it again.

Thanks for checking in on me. I will post more tomorrow. :)
