A couple of projects on our list have been completed.
First, the deck. Todd added railing for the boys' safety. It took him a few days to finish. I stained it.
I painted our front door. Not a big job, but it took 3 coats (one was primer), and since it was high gloss paint and high humidity, it took 2 days. It was the same color as the siding. So much more welcoming now, huh? (Not really.... But I like the dark brown better.)
The Frugal Novice had a link to the Healthy Home Blog for a giveaway for a $50 gift card to Family Dollar. I rarely shop there, but thought I would check it out. Turns out, Family Dollar has a new clothing line for children called Kidgets. I entered the giveaway, and I printed the $1 off coupons for the clothes. (I printed 4; should have printed more.) So, I stopped by FD today, on the way home from lunch out with friends, and found many cute outfits for the boys. Some of them are 3-piece, and every outfit was $6 or under! I got 2 of each outfit, but now we have more khaki shorts than we really need. Oh well. I feel like I did pretty good.
