What would we do without a project? Sorry, honey.

So, the Fear Not Party was all my idea but it is going to be a whole lot of work for Tim.
I am planning on 100+ people in our back yard.! Yikes.
Here we are making the bean bag toss board.
1. Buy a big piece of board from the hardware store.
2. Paint it white. 3. Have your artistic neighbor come over and help you sketch out your drawing.4. Start Painting
5. Take a break for a sushi date.
6. Trace a lid for the gumballs.
7. Have your hunky husband drill the holes for the bean bags.
8. Keep painting.
Almost done!!
9. Have your hunky husband add the finishing touches.
and VOILA!!
a super-cute BEAN BAG TOSS GAME!
Does this make anyone think of the Brady Bunch??...

Blog Bonus Pictures
This underwear is currently hanging from the chandelier in the study where I use the computer.
I thought it was picture-worthy. I rarely even notice things like this anymore. The boys have dulled my senses.
My life is so wonderfully out-of-control! ;)
This is what the boys like to do to Lake...put as many things as possible in his crib.
Don't feel too sorry for him because he is usually the one bothering them.
This is another classic example of what is happening while I am on the computer.

I love that you took a photo of the underwear hanging from your chandelier. I would totally expect to see a very similar scenario in our house- and I would absolutely take a photo too!!!

hope that you are doing well.
take care friend!

Oh I want to come save Lake. Love the gum ball guys are so stinkin talented...and OH MY GOODNESS, another reason we should live closer...we are so addicted to sushi, do your boys eat it? I am not really thrilled that I must now buy it for my children, but they insist. What fun is in store.

Oh I just had to laugh so hard everytime your husband did some project on that bean bag toss. I was thinking of all the times Chris has helped me out too.... lol! The underwear on the chandlier made me crack up! I'm still laughing. Definitely photo worthy. ;-)

I am cracking up!! First of all, the sushi looks yummy. Secondly, the gumball toss is brilliant. Finally, my son does the EXACT thing to his sister in the crib...puts everything in her room in there. But the finishing touch is that he then climbs in there with them. Have a great time at your party!

The gumball toss is awesome - you guys did a super job! your hard work paid off and I am very impressed:) wish we were near to come and join your party - ! oh, that would be such fun - my boys (and girls) would so enjoy something like that. We are presently visiting a church that is going to have a harvest festival and I think that would be fun to go to~
haha our little Brighton gets crowded out in her pack n-play w/ all sorts of stuff the children throw in there - problem is, she's learned to use it to her advantage now... she stacks it and climbs out!

lol at the underwear! I can relate - funny how we get use to it, eh? the other night all four boys got out of the shower, put their underwear ON OVER their night shorts and came out of the bathroom so proud of themselves as they said they were now "superheros!" gotta love it. :)

blessings on your new week!
