Home Depot

Saturday We got a suprise, Daddy came home from his call night at the hospital very peppy because he got five hours of sleep (normally 1 or 2 hours is good) So instead of Chris sleeping and Me trying to keep the kiddos quiet while He was sleeping, We decided it was such a beautiful day we would clean up our backyard while the kids played. While we were working we decided we needed more lawn bags and wanted to talk to someone about our lawn anyway, so we packed up the kiddos and headed over to Home Depot. While walking through the store, they had a kids workshop where kiddos could make and take a planter box (this month). What a fun thing, they give the kids an apron or as Ty calls it an aprochaun and puts their name on it to keep. It was such a fun thing to watch Chris and Ty sit there building together. I actually wish I had my camera but we did'nt know. I guess Home Depot has a kids workshop the first Saturday of every month. I definatly think we will go back if we can remember.

Here is Ty and his box he was so proud of it!
He carried it around most of the day wanting to paint it.

The next morning
Ty is painting it "just the perfect color "
Good thing I had some black paint around
Lucy wanted in on the action so I used Grandma Cooks trick. (water, a paint brush and construction paper) what a cheesy smile, and messy hair!

Adorable! By the way, did you get my phone message. (I wasn't sure if I had the right number.) We'll be in Kansas City May 6th, hopefully you'll be around.

I love the little apron. How cute! I need to hire him to make me some planter boxes about 10x as big for my house!! Is he accepting new clients? Can't wait to see you in a few weeks.

What a mind-blower to see your kids so big. Their Easter picture is precious.
