Easter 2011

Well, the week started off with me pulling out a pen and paper and sitting the guys(Jason and Adam) down.  We “had” to create a list of “to do’s”  for the house before we hosted Easter.  I could see without a list that things could get ugly around here!  HA!  Here is what our list looked like!  I am sure you will agree with me on why we needed to make a list!
1. Finish laying tile  - Completed the weekend before Easter:  See the results!

2. Paint Touch Ups and Electrical

4.  Find Chairs for the new table.  I do have to brag a bit about our find.  We got all of our chairs at Waterfront Rescue Mission in downtown Pensacola for $5 each!  Just took a little work to get just right.

6.  Mop the floors to try to remove all of the grout haze.  See what I got to help with this!  It’s my new favorite toy.

7.  We had Jason(on his day off of course, yes I am a slave driver) pressure wash the driveway and back area around the pool.  It made such a difference.
8.  Clean, Clean, Clean – completed all day before Easter
9.  Place furniture in place.  All of our furniture pieces have been living in one of our spare bedrooms for a while now during all of our flooring processes.
10:  Decorate and get ready for the family!  We were so excited to get to host this year.  We worked very hard to get the house in somewhat of a presentable state.  I am was also very excited that my aunt and uncle from Arkansas were down in Gulf Shores and got to attend!

After lunch, we attended the Purdy family Easter gathering.  Might I add that this side of the family has 15 grandchildren, plus there were other families invited.  This made for a good time with tons of children running around, searching for eggs, even trying to catch them from the egg drop! 
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!! 
Until Next time!
