Barn Paint and a Surprise for Adrian....

We wanted to surprise Adrian when he came home with a freshly painted deck. We have a huge deck on the back of the house but it was in really sad shape the paint was very faded and peeling everywhere. So the kids got to work scraping, sweeping and painting. We weren't sure if the weather was going to co~operate but the sun ended up coming out and the deck turned out great. We can't wait to surprise Adrian!! Here are some snapshots of what happens when you mix 3 kids with 5 gallons of Barn Paint.

We can't wait to surprise Mr.Watts so when he comes back from the other side of the world he can sit out on the back deck and enjoy the view!!!

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

  9. Wonderful job and wonderful helpers. I know your husband will be ready to sit and relax when he gets back home. I just hate it when Brian leaves. How much longer will he be gone?
