I figured I best post these pics before the snow flies! lol. I've been meaning to post them and keep forgetting. Too much to do. Too little time.
At least it's not a cell phone I'm forgetting about! Oh my word! You will not believe it! This past weekend I grabbed my cell phone to snap a picture of Jackson playing outside. While waiting for the cell to pick up a signal, I decided to grab the garbage by the door and toss it into the garbage can. I got to the garbage can and realized it was overflowing. Being the "do as much as I can, as fast as I can" kinda gal, I grabbed the matches, stuck them in my pocket, filled both hands with garbage and headed to the burning barrel and promptly dumped everything in...including the cell phone I was still holding in my hand! Yes, I did light the fire, completely forgetting about my phone until after I had put the matches back where they belonged. I have no idea why I thought to put the matches in my pocket and not my cell...dumb!!! It took about 15 minutes before I realized where the phone must be...yup! Too late!
See here's the thing...I've had this phone for almost 2 years and h.a.t.e.d. it at first. Martin thought he was buying me a VERY thoughtful and lovely gift when he purchased it. I, on the other hand, was m.a.d.!! I could not believe that he would spend money so foolishly when I already had a cell phone that worked perfectly fine, thank you!! Well...eventually I fell in love with that phone and forgave Martin for spending the money. I realized my phone was a pretty sweet thing to have. Now I'm back to the phone that "worked perfectly fine, thank you!!"...and I HATE it! It is so ssssssllllllooooowwwww!! Oh well! Lesson learned!
Anyhow....back to the pictures of the boys' tree fort. Alex and Morgun have been working on this fort for a few years and it gets improved upon all the time. I love seeing them be creative and use their hammers and saws. It takes quite the determination to saw those boards with a handsaw. So proud of my boys!
