World's Best Amanda & Parents!

We started painting the house this weekend!  A HUGE 'Thank You' to my parents and Amanda for coming to help.  We painted the entryway, living room, kitchen and master bedroom.  I spent most of the weekend sitting outside on the back porch, with the dogs, watching my feet swell (I officially have 'kankles').  

Some of Dave's co-workers will help paint after work this week.  We're hoping to get the dining room, master bathroom and nursery painted by Friday.  Movers come on Saturday to deliver our furniture.  Hopefully this time next week we'll be living permanently in our house. 

It's amazing what a coat of paint will do to a room.  This house now feels like our home.  Originally, every room was painted a pale yellow color, not a bad color, but not a color that compliments any of our furniture.  

Why are we rushing to get almost every room painted by Friday?  If you haven't noticed, we're having twins soon!  We're betting on not having the time to paint anything in the next few months (maybe even years)

Anyway, Dave and I had a lot of fun this weekend and are eternally grateful for the much needed help.
