Party Time

On June 11, we hosted a party for Trent's office; we had around 50 guests.

This date has been ringing in the ears of many for the past month or so as we've prepared our house for the big event.

"Dad, can you have the pavers laid by June 11. Also the shutters painted and the light switches changed out." His list goes on and on.

"Mom, can you get my draperies made by June 11." Her list also goes on and on.

"Clay and Lloyd, can you provide a whole lot of manual labor, and since you are both electricians, how about you install the transformers for our pool lights."

We thank the many family members who helped with our house, which looks great considering we moved in 7 months ago. It is starting to look and feel like home. Now that we have these projects behind us, maybe we can relax on the weekends and just focus on these babies.

Here are a few pics of the backyard before the party. Thanks everyone for all your help. We could not have done it without you!


  1. Wow! It looks gorgeous! How wonderful to have such great helpers close by to pitch in on the work. :)

  2. Thanks, Megan. Oh, yes it's wonderful. Having two sets up grandparents and a set of great grandparents in the same city by will also be a huge help once these babies arrive.
