Extreme Makeover



Phase one is under way!!

That's right, we've started our extreme backyard makeover. We have a new sandbox for the kids to play in. Made by Daddy! He's becoming such a handy man. It's 10x10...feet that is. GINORMOUS!! We also have a new swing set. Also quite humungous. Monkey bars, swings, glider for two, clubhouse, playhouse, and picnic table. We also intend to replace the small rotted deck with a new patio for lounging while the little ones play. Pool and fire pit to come a few years down the road.

While we've been working hard on our outside projects, the inside of the house has accumulated germs. Yes, sick kiddos again. Three wheezers, another ear infection, and the terrible threes! The quads are all on antibiotics again, and Drew is just busy. Some days I wonder if I'm gonna make it. Like today for example, Maddox broke his nose during therapy, Emma ate poop, Parker was beating Jack up, and Drew lost his listening ears somewhere and have yet to be found. Tomorrow has got to be better. :)

I sure am ready for spring. I think it will cure a lot of this stress due to cabin fever. I'm really excited to let the kids run in the backyard and open the windows. Our first summer in this house I'm hoping will be spectacular with many more to follow. We love it here!! Hoping to catch up in person with some of my girlfriends who are SAHM's...you girls know who you are!!

Sleep tight everyone!

Sounds like the outside is coming along. We'll begin work in our backyard soon. Open all your kids get healthy soon, our four has been sick the past week and are just now getting to feeling better. Its not fun when they all get sick + mommy.
