A Work in Progress

So one thing I really wanted done before the baby comes was to have the front door painted. As you can see in the before pic it was half green/half primed for a couple months. But when I asked Grant to fix it he said as long as he was painting he wanted to paint the whole house cuz he hates this brown color. And I have never loved the brown color but painting the whole house seemed a bit too ambitious. But anyone who knows Grant knows that once he gets an idea there is no turning back! So we are in the middle of it all and here is a pic of the house so far. I'm going to paint the garage and door a charcoaly-brown color (hard to explain but I'll post a pic when it's done) And we need to shop for a new porch light, too. I want to get a black lantern type light or something. Anyway, more pics to come!

The paint job looks great! I like it a lot. I don't think Zeke has the chicken pox, it is more rash like now. I guess we will see what happens with it. I need to take him to the Dr's.
