And the painting begins!

I let the kids help prime. They did pretty good for a while, then things got out of hand and they started scraping the walls and such. So their party ended.

Then Friday night, my in-laws came over and we had a priming/pizza party. It was so nice to have so many people helping. The work went rather quickly and I am SO appreciatve for their help!

Justin and Gregg did most of the ceilings.

Natalie and Anna hit the corners.

Amber took care of the bottom half of the walls.
And Kevin helped a lot with the walls and ceiling as well. Poor Becky got stuck upstairs with all the kids. They must have taken off before I got the camera out. Emily and Brandon came just as we were finishing, but don't worry, there is more work to be done, they'll get their chance. :)
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! To everyone.
Now we are ready to paint and hang trim. One more good paint party and we'll have it all done. Then it'll be time for carpet. Can you believe it!!!!????
