Some help

Susan and Greg ( my sis and bro in law) came up a couple of weeks ago to help us get some work done around the house. We have had a stack of pavers that we bought for a really good price three, yes Three years ago for our back patio. It has been a gradual work in progress and honestly i wondered if we would ever get it done so that we could enjoy it.

The guys started their day early picking up a second truckload of sand (that they didn't even end up needing) and continued to work ALL DAY LONG!


they had some cute help though

Phil (another bro in law) came over and helped too! It was hot and they drank a lot of water!

Johnny and Greg are always being crazy...

had to do lot's of cutting on the edge pieces!

Here is our semi finished back patio area. The patio is complete! The porch is going to be built soon and we have landscaping coming this next week! We have been sitting out by the fire a lot lately!

While the guys were busy outside we girls were not just sitting around inside. My sister aka: master organizer helped me tear through ever nook and cranny of the inside of my house organizing and cleaning. Every single closet, cupboard, drawer in this house is neatly organized and it feels SO good! We are hopefully going to show that this house has space regardless of 6 people living here!

The little kids helped haul bag after bag to the truck of clothes to get rid of...

We SO appreciated all the help! Thank you guys so much! I will post a picture of the completed back patio are soon hopefully!
