Un-Extreme Home Makeover: Birthday Edition!

Today is Paul's birthday! Happy Birthday Honey! So, since it was his birthday I let him sleep in, served him breakfast in bed and he got to sit in his recliner and watch Man T.V. all day! Okay, NOT! But, that is the way the day should have gone! Unfortunately, we don't have a kitchen for me to prepare a birthday breakfast in, hence the reason he had to get out of bed, and there is nary a recliner to be found in our house!
Instead he got a store bought, whole grain, apple cider muffin with a banana, served on a paper plate in the bed at 8:00am this morning. Then he hopped to it! 'Cause he had this to do.

Getting rid of that nasty track lighting!

And then he....

Took down this lovely lantern!

And both those dinosaurs currently reside at the the pile of trash I am ashamed to say will be sitting there until Tuesday. Oh well!

He also had to frame in my beautiful new window, no thanks to the city, thankyouverymuch!
And currently he is

Up on scaffolding, trying to spray paint the ceiling.....isn't he cute in his jumpsuit? Then we have to paint the walls. All the walls. Tonight. In case you don't know, it's already 7:30PM. I think it's safe to say that this is going to be a long night!!! Really. Thank goodness reinforcements are coming tomorrow. Paul called his Uncle Dave down in Jacksonville, and he is heading up to help with the cabinets!!!

Oh, and just in case you thought this week couldn't get thought wrong!

Parker and Isabel are in bed with fevers! Yeah, we went to Wal-mart on Wednesday, came down with the Wal-mart shopping cart bug on Thursday. Haven't heard of that virus yet? IT'S THE ONE YOU GET FROM THOSE NASTY BUGGIES AT WAL-MART!

Poor Noah is going to change his name. Every time someone needed anything they were hollering for him! Me included! Now he is across the street at Meme and Papa's cooking dinner for us. Paul is getting Tater Tot casserole for his birthday dinner because that is one of the things that boy knows how to cook!

Happy Birthday, Paul! You know, my daughter is getting butterfly cupcakes at her birthday party tomorrow. After hearing about all you did today, somehow that just doesn't seem fair... Do you want a butterfly cupcake? We can mail one.

You really need to stop showing me pictures of my house all in peices. Now the pieces are beside the road to be picked up Tuesday and taken away, never to be seen again. ....I didn't even get to say goodbye. :::(
Nah, just kidding... maybe. It better look really good to make up for this broken heart you have given me.

Happy Birthday Uncle Paul!!! :)

Oh, and I smelled you today! Okay, it wasn't specifically you, but rather Charleston. I smelt(or smelled?) Chalreston today. It was GREAT! :)
