Surprise!

My sisters and I spent the painting on Wednesday. My stepmom is in Florida for a few weeks and my Dad wanted to surprise her by fixing up the dining room while she was gone. There was wallpaper on these walls and it was time for it to go. Dad took the paper down and Terri, Cheri and I came in and painted today. We ended up painting the hallway too. It was lots of work but it looked so nice when we finished. Ann should be happy when she comes home! Here's Terri, working hard at rolling that paint.


Here's Cheri - cooling off by the patio door. I told her it looked like she was just watching while we worked. Actually, we all worked pretty hard, but had fun too!

I love painting and redoing rooms or whatever needs a change. It is fun to see the end result. When I paint, I crank up the radio and go.

Terri, Cheri and Mari...I would have fit right in.

Ann got herself quite a great deal when she married your Dad, didn't she? A really thoughtful man AND three sweet, helpful, loving step-daughters. You girls ROCK.

No debate on who worked the hardest? You three are quite the team and Ann will be very blessed to have this all set for her.

When are you coming to give my house a face lift?

As someone who just had a family member do some painting for me....let me tell you what a blessing you girls are to your Dad and Stepmom.
I'd love to come home to a surprise like that!

I know it was lots of work, but a true labor of love.
Do we get to see the finished project and a shot of Ann's face when she sees it?

Terri said...

It actually is kind of fun to do it together. It did turn out nice. I'll see what it looks like today with everything up!

Beth said...

So nice of you guys to help surprise your stepmom.

And I love that your names rhyme!

Cheri said...

It was hard work- but fun at the same time.
Dad said today that he was glad we went darker with the paint color and that he's really happy with it.

Y'all make me want to have three girls - you are always having so much fun and doing such nice things for your daddy! Ann is gonna love it!

I really like that photo of Cheri ... well, if you took the big paint roller out ! It's nice. :)

Great job painting. I'm sure Ann will be thrilled. Hopefully she doesn't read your blog while she's away and spoil the surprise !! :)

That's awesome, but I went over to Terri's and she said y'all were picking on her...is that true? (Wink wink!)

What a great picture of Cheri---she didn't even break a sweat!

Isn't it amazing how much a can of paint can transform things? I'm sure she'll be thrilled and how lucky your dad has 3 daughters to aid him in his surprise!
