Hubby's Christmas Present

My husband, Chris, is a great guy. He is an especially great dad.

Two summers ago, we painted nearly our entire house except for his office, our bedroom, bathroom and my office. While I was in Florida with the kids, he finished our bedroom (insert "awwww" here) and we are just trying to decide now how we are going to finish our bath and I am still undecided on my office.

We had a color picked out for his office. We've had it since we painted the entire house. It is to be the
same green as the dining room. We just never got around to it. I knew Chris wouldn't. You see, if he has a free Saturday, he is doing something for me like fixing something or watching the kids all day so I can do something. Or he is playing with his boys 4 and 16 months. He loves to just spend all day with his kids. He is that kind of dad--the best kind.

So, I decided that his big gift from me would be to finish his office. I hired Super Jim, our handyman to paint and move all the heavy crap--and there was a LOT of crap. He started early yesterday and is coming back today to finish. I have a couple more surprises in store for the office, but that will have to wait till Chris sees it. Did I also mention he also reads my blog?

He's a great guy, isn't he?

This is part of the dining room. We have company and can't eat here yet!
