He's Home

Daddy is finally home and he was emotional the minute he stepped out of the car.   I almost missed when they (his niece V) pulled into the driveway.  I wanted to greet him at the car and then run inside to snap pictures of his reaction...
The first thing he noticed was that his house was white again as The Hubby had it power washed then...

His reaction was total shock as he walked through out the house and saw all the different things.


New kitchen floors...

Here he is discussing with B the arrowheads that she cleaned and reframed for him.
It has been a huge undertaking for Daddy but so well worth the effort for him and to have a wonderful place for him to live the rest of his life.  I'm content.


The day has been full I can tell you.  I went to workout early this AM and did 3 miles on the treadmill before the day even got started.  Then it was off to the doc about my hand.  X-ray's done I was then told that I had arthritis and carpel tunnel syndrome both hands, (knew that) and I will need to go back in 4 weeks.  Oh, and I got matching set of beautiful wrist accessory...



Tomorrow is another day...taking Daddy and V to the cabin for the afternoon then Sunday an open house to show off the work and welcome Daddy home. 


Side note...Little Clayton posing for me...Ain't he just adorable...

Yes, Clayton is adorable but I just love how you did all this work for your dad. WHAT a wonderful thing you did! I still can't get over the magnificent transformation. Wow! I'm so sorry for your hand.

Little Clayton really is adorable sitting there like that.
How upsetting about your hands! I feel honored that you stopped by my blog. I know how difficult it is to type when you're not 100%.
Loved what you did for your father. Very heartwarming.
