Russ isn't a builder, he really hasn't built much. So I suggested that he build a playhouse for the kids for Christmas he was a little skeptical. I showed him the Ana White website where he could get free plans and he decided to give it a go.
He really didn't have a lot of time to work on it because of his work schedule and holiday stuff so I was a little worried that it wouldn't get done. Luckily my mom and dad and brother Mark came out one day to help build or watch the kids so I could paint.
By some miracle it was ready on Christmas eve.
We told the kids that Russ was building a shed for his lawn mower and it was covered by tarps once you could tell what it was so they were not sure what there present was when they opened their eyes.
But they were excited once they figured it out.
Even Joseph was so excited.
It was a lot of work, but so worth it. It will give them a reason to play outside more and I love that. I don't think they play outside enough.
Well done Russ, well done.
