Mom's Birthday Gift... that keeps giving... and giving... and giving...

For Mom's birthday we repainted both the porch and the arbor and bought her a wicker swing for the porch.  Here are our beginning efforts.

* we got the littlest involved... I see the makings of a master painter *

The arbor was a frightful sight... can't believe we weren't more embarrased to have our friends walk under it!  The boys had to scrape the old paint off before...

... the new could go on.

* we still managed to have smiles at the end of the day *

Happy Birthday Mom!  May you enjoy this gift for many months to come!
(The gifts that keep re-giving itself over and over are really the best!  You should try it sometime!)
