Home Depot Project
This morning I took Alli and Landon (<--not the best idea; Landon that is) to Home Depot to do this Fire truck bank project they had going on. Props to Laura for suggesting it...Thanks! I guess I expected the project to be flimsy and all since everyone else that has fee stuff goes cheap. But it was so nice, the bank was made out of wood, which was made out of a tree <--ok that was just stupid, so stupid I can't even delete it, I'll just share my stupidity with you as a freebie.
Okay moving right along. So Landon is sitting on top of the table while I'm hammering madley away at this truck. I wasn't mad, I was just hammering crazily. Landon might have even gotten a little air with each blow to the nail. Little nails...not good to the fingers. I took a couple for the team lets put it that way. Alli did help a bit, with the punch out parts and placement of the tires, but her interest was over at the trucks. Sparky the fire dog even came out and did the whole high five thing. Then he pulled Landon's sock off which made him cry, you know just to add to my stress free time, why not.
I like the pic Angela took of us on the ground, I didn't even know she was snapping away, so thanks Angela, (I left my camera at home) which was okay, I choose my friends wisley, she is always prepared am I not so always prepared. We are on the ground because driving those nails into thin wood on a table that bounces back at you just doesn't work. <--this tip brought to you in part by the fireman<--that was helping a child who was present with his grandfather. Hello, single woman here, with a restless nine month old, slamming the hammer into my poor little thumb with each try, all the while keeping a smile for Alli's sake. <--but who's complaining, not I. I will have to say my favorite pic, is when we stole some firemans boots and stuck Landon in them...so cute! Laura keep us posted on all upcoming events, we really did have fun, most of this blog was just joke like ya know?
