We've been doing some painting around here.
I have wanted to repaint my dining room and living room a lighter color for awhile.
Joel would tell you that the color is boring,
but I love how it turned out.
(He will love it eventually too!)
My brother-in-law, James, came over yesterday to help me.
We finished the whole dining room in the morning.
We are going to tackle the living room next week.
Levi was very cooperative and slept through almost the whole thing.
He woke up when we were painting the last wall.
He was happy to just watch his Uncle James paint.
I think we are getting these projects done just in time.
Before I know it little Levi is going to be mobile.
I don't think he will just nicely sit in the middle of a mess for very much longer.
Last night we were with Joel's family for a birthday party.
Levi's boy cousins have really cool toys.
Like tractors you can ride on.
Happy Birthday sweet boy!
During the party the rest of the cousins
were working on a little surprise for Uncle Joel...
who is turning the big 3-0 today.
Henry has an ongoing joke with Joel.
It involves mustard.
These kids were pretty proud of their mustard message
they left Joel on our car for his birthday.
We are celebrating Joel's birthday next week.
I am busy planning a party for him,
which is why I felt the need to get some painting done.
Parties always help with getting the undone projects finished, don't they?

This weekend check out Project Pillowcase. Cheryl is looking for people to join her in making dresses for children in Cebu, Philippines. Can you help?
