*new* garage door

We finished up a project that I have wanted to do for a couple of years now... :o) It only took two days to complete, so I am not sure why it took us so long to get started! (Maybe 4 kids, etc., but hey!)

Anyways, here is our new and improved garage door! :o) We had the red and white paint from when we painted the house a few summers ago. So add some blue paint, and ta-da... :o)

I *LOVE* it!
Here is a photo of the whole house front, right after we had painted it. That was three summers ago. When we were painting it, I couldn't figure out why I was so tired all the time. I would come in each afternoon and take a nap. Turned out I was pregnant with Jimmy! HA!

Thanks for looking!

Oh my gosh, I just noticed the pix of your dad and that his name is Thompson. My dad's last name was Thompson! He passed away in 1968 of a heart attack at the age of 45. He grew up in Sheldon, IL. Do you suppose we are realted somewhere down the line?????

Our homeowner's association would never allow the flag garage door but, oh, I would love it!
