Play things

My dreams are finally coming to fruition!!! We are getting/building (and by we I mean the royal we) a swing set right now for the boys!  This just might make the year for me, really!  If I hear "I'm bored" at all this help that child!  This set is going to be HUGE!

Here is the starting of it...the beams and such.

Frank and his brothers solving the world's woes.

It's starting to come together with help from the 'supervisor', Grandpa Lee.

When the frame/structure went up the boys really started to get excited and can't wait for the finished product. For that matter I can't wait either! 
We (again royal we) still have more work to do.  Envision if you will, adding some swings, a rock wall, 2 slides and a ladder.  Then of course somehow anchoring the whole thing down.  Frank is hoping to get it done this weekend but the weather has changed on us so who knows.  Soon I hope though!  Of course there will be more pictures later of further progress.  Excitement at our house!  Thank you to my parents for going in halvesies (like the new workd I coined?) with us and Frank's parents for the physical help and spotting us the chunk of change for our part.  It was a deal TOO good to pass up, truly!  Thank you doesn't seem to be enough but it's what I have.

Well, I think I'm going to go do some weeding.

Enjoy this beautiful and bright weather we have today Washingtonians!


  1. Go Frank! Go Frank! Go Frank! Doing a little happy dance for your boys. They are going to love it.

  2. Daniel and Uncle Brownie need your help! Nikki and I of course will be gone :) so sad too bad~

  3. We are SO close!! I'll have to put up pictures again soon!!

Here is Ian...he's about 4-6 months old. I still get this look...what!?!Here is my son 8 years later! SOB! Time for birthday spankings from daddy! Quite fun!
Dru joined in the fun...they really do enjoy it when daddy holds the big brother down, easy target!
Lee really going for it...check his stance out!Even Eli got in on the fun...he didn't spank nearly as hard as the other brothers...of course he wasn't quite sure what was going on anyway...he just wanted to do it too!Ian and his birthday ice cream cake! He lives for ice cream cake! What a handsome fella!
He had a good day and got a gift he's been waiting for since he saw it and Grandpa Lee and Grandma Paulson's house on Christmas day....thank goodness they came through and got it for him! He got some money and some great outdoor games and items! He had a great day! I l…

Someone is FINALLY 4!!!

A good morning from Big brother Lee on Eli's birthday!  Mighty is so excited that something is going on!! Whatever it is its worth getting up for!
 My birthday boy!  Has 4 years really gone by so quickly!?!  This year his birthday was the day before Thanksgiving...I am NOT cooking a birthday dinner tonight!  We will be going to Pizza Hut and having a party there...Eli is SO excited and is so happy that his day is finally here!!  It's been a long year of everyone else having their birthdays and not him.
 Birthday boy, Mighty and Mom...a good picture I think

 Birthday spankings!!  Thank goodness it is only 4 and a pinch to grow an inch!
Happy birthday Sparky!

Goose Egg is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
