Buxton Paint Company -- "Dream Team"

The Buxton Paint Company "Dream Team" was on site for two days this week, slapping down a total of 20 gallons of paint! It was a hard fought battle, but the team prevailed by using masterful brushstrokes and fanatical rolling. The "Dream Team" consisted of the following individuals:

Leadoff Hitter, Mary Dance -- She's small, but packs a punch. She edges, she rolls, and isn't afraid to take on any color! Honed her skills at Sweet Briar College.
Batting Second, Melissa Berry -- UVA graduate with a mastery of Sedate Grey, Liveable Green and many other colors. Doesn't let the bugs get in her paint when shes rollin' the Jersey Cream!
Batting Third, Carolee Berry -- The team leader...picks the colors, directs the players and is known for her edging mastery! Don't be messing with her favorite weapon, the 2" edging brush! Veteran player from Ohio State.
Cleanup, Stephen Berry -- A rolling fanatic in a constant state of motion. In his rookie year from Hampden-Sydney, but signed a big free agent contract with Wake Forest for '09!
Batting Fifth, Michael Shveima -- This 6'6" Notre Dame grad knows how to use the big lumber. Broke out the roller extension in the late innings and knocked out a couple of 11 and half foot walls in Sleepy Blue.
Batting Sixth, Gene Berry -- Another Ohio State grad who is known for his solid, consistent rolling. Only knows one color, Jersey Cream, but has it mastered!

Bathroom Tile

The tile is currently being installed in the bathrooms. Drywall is being finished and painting of the interior trim is just starting. We are heading down to Hatteras with the kids after Christmas to do some interior painting of our own.

In case you didn't notice (look to your left), an availability calendar has been added to the blog. We are in the process of getting all the family dates reserved for 2009. July is already looking like a blockbuster month, with only five days remaining!
