Just a Few Projects

We've been working, or I should say Clint has been working on putting in our backyard. He tried to till the ground with our tiller but due to the rock quarry in our yard it was like watching a bull ride and seeing the cowboy get bucked all around. It was funny to watch, not so funny for the cowboy trying to till. Therefore, he went and borrowed his dad's tractor so he could actually till the ground instead of get knocked to the ground. Easton loves the trac-tor as he calls it. He talks about riding on the tractor daily. Somehow he even managed to fall asleep while riding on the machine. He won't sleep in his big, soft bed but put him on a noisy, bumpy tractor and he's out like a light.Then there was the backsplash project. Do you remember this post?
We decided to just do beadboard. As much as I would have loved a tile backsplash, money and time prevented such a thing.
And then Easton performed a few projects of his own. This nice project took place on our bathroom wall with some white paint I had been using. Lovely artwork isn't it? I was hoping to add a little something to our walls. Easton knew just what I wanted.
Oh, and how about this baking project. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results from this one. Nothing says cookies, cakes and brownies quite like a 25lb bag of flour on the floor and a little two year old in it.

I'll bet that was a joy to clean up. If he wasn't so cute he might be a handful!!!! I feel for Clint with the yard work - it can be a nightmare.

At least the flour and the paint are both white - he's staying with the color scheme :)

Reed says - The key to that is putting the lid to the bucket on tight. It might infuriate your wife when she can't open it, but neither can a two year old.

I love all the white! so clean!!

His dad OWNS a tractor???? And I though my dad had all the best equipment...
Yeah, I think Easton just knows how much you really love white, wow, you really love white. You must spend all day cleaning. White makes me cringe when I think of what it will end up being after my kids are around 5 minutes.

Thats the funniest thing-and look how happy he looks. And look, he's decorationg in all white, just like his mama. And if you need a bright side to the situation, at least it was in the bathroom!!!!
PS. I had no idea you were soooo OCD. Its great.

Aren't kidds so much fun? I am so glad that Easton is creative. It makes mom stay active and on her toes. He is a cutie.

I can't wait to see your house. It looks so pretty. I will need to come and take lessons on how to paint stuff. You are so creative.

I love cute Easton. He is a total boy- into everything.

Love it! You truly have great writing skills Charisse! Your pictures are great too! Just wait until he starts pretending he is a dog and starts chowing down on the dog food. Two of my kids went through that phase about his age! Yuck!

I think I would have had a melt down at the sight of that mess!! He makes me laugh (since I don't have to clean up the mess :)). Let me know when you want me to come down this month. I would love to see you.
