Dee-Dee and Grandaddy come to visit

The mustard mansion has LOTS of work to be done.  Since neither Jim nor I are handy, we are having to pay people to do most of the stuff.  The first weekend in the new house, Dee-Dee and Grandaddy came out to help us get started.  They came Thursday night, and by the time Will and I got over to the new house Friday mid-day, three rooms down stairs were already painted!  They were busy!!  The rest of the weekend, Grandaddy and Jim did a whole bunch of random odd jobs inside and outside while Dee-Dee painted 3 more rooms upstairs.  I did some painting, watching Will, and other random jobs.  They were such a big help!!  By the end of the weekend, we accomplished most of my to do list!  It was super helpful!  The work would have taken Jim and I 3 weeks to get it done, not 3 days.  Thank you so much!!!  Will had so much fun running around and helping out too!  He loves playing with Dee-Dee and Grandaddy and had such a great time getting to help out.  Dee-Dee made chili for everyone to snack on while they were working.  Since it has all good-for-you stuff in it, I decided to let Will try it too.  He LOVED it!!  Since we did not have furniture in the new house, including beds, everyone was sleeping on blow-up mattresses (Will in a pack-n-play).  Will loved to play on the blow-up matress.  He would climb on them, roll around, and bounce.  He was too cute playing on them.   Thanks again for all of the help!  We love you!

Thanks for all of your help!!!
