Painting; The Month Long Process

It took us almost an entire month but Charlie and I are finally done (at least I hope) painting the house. My main goal was to finish the painting before we got the rebate back for the paint. We were successful, but that could be due to the fact that I just sent in the rebate last week, oh well, it's done. 

Since painting the house wasn't enough painting I also painted the cement foundation. I didn't like the look of the black sealant. 

Yesterday we were able to finish this side of the house, the scary tall side. It doesn't look really tall, but it is. If only ladders were easier to climb up and down, and not so shaky, and not so high. It also doesn't help that I have fallen off of a ladder not once but twice. My motto was; "Coat it thick and don't look down." I told Charlie the next time we paint the house I plan to be 8 months pregnant so I won't have to do it. 
Those two pictures didn't make it look scary enough so I took another picture. Scared now? Can you tell which part of the house we are both too scared to paint and therefore are going to pretend doesn't exist? I'll tell you at the end. 

This side was also scary. Luckily yesterday I only had to paint the cement.

You'd think I'd be sick of painting, but I'm not (rolls eyes) I still have to paint this shed. Isn't she a beauty?
I might even get around to taking the pine needles off of the roof. We'll see.

If you actually read this far the answer the the question is:
Luckily the paint color we spent an hour picking out, was the exact color the house already was, so you can't tell that we didn't paint that part. If you can tell you have two options 1. Come paint it for us, or 2. Don't say anything about it lest you hear my wrath.

Just kidding.
