Glad I'm not a guy. :D Although Mical and I weren't soundly sleeping in our warm beds... we were making hot chocolate and cooking pizza for them into the wee hours. ;)
I wish I could post a picture of the final stage: an awesome stamped concrete patio. But, it was covered with plastic and hay to keep it from freezing and cracking before I ever even saw it finished. :( (I was terribly busy out shopping that afternoon with my sister.) So, in 2 weeks when we can take that stuff off, I'll take a picture. Thanks to Ryan and my little brothers for all the hard work wheelbarrowing concrete! :)
By the way... yes, plastic and hay. I know, our backyard is NOT a pretty sight right now.
