the best part was that he had no idea everyone was coming. he thought it would be the two of us + his sister, maggie, and brother-in-law, wes. i'm surprised he didn't catch on when i kept on buying more brushes and roller covers at sherwin williams on friday night!
for those special helpers who contributed and are reading this, thanks THanks THANKS! it was such a blessing to get everything done in ONE day, instead of the 3-4 it would have taken me and ben if we had done it alone. you are the best, and we are blessed by your selflessness and willingness to help. ben said it was the best birthday gift he could have received.
(the very grateful couple.)
