Happy Helper

I was getting the trash bag out of the trash can in our kitchen, to take it out to the garage, when Tucker stops what he's playing with and comes over to me as fast as he can. He watches me tie up the bag as if he's waiting for something. So when the knot is tied, I motion to him that he can have the bag. He goes to pick it up, but of course, it's too heavy for him, so he looks at me and I grab the knot and he grabs the ties and we both walk to the garage. He always wants to help throw out the trash! It's pretty cool. Whenever I finish changing a stinky diaper, I put those in little plastic bags and once Tucker hears the crunch of the plastic, he comes running and takes the bag to the door. Right now, I'm trying to get Carson to pick up his toys......not happening. Carson is a good helper though - in other areas.

Here are some shots of our new swingset - it's done! The thing we're all sitting on under there is this cool three-sided swing thing that's nice and low for Tucker to sit on.

Chutes and Ladders

We bought a lot of outdoor play equipment in the last month or so, and Keith has put in lot of time putting it all together and it's almost done. We have an airplane/teeter-totter, a big swinset, and a playhouse that'll eventually be in the backyard (it's in our living room until we have warmer weather).

Tucker was happy seconds before this picture was taken.

This is part of the swingset, as of right now, most of it is put together. It has a large slide and a climbing wall. It's definitely above Tucker's level of ability for the most part. But it's so nice to have something for the boys to play around on outside!

Carson's Drawing

Here's a drawing Carson made today. He says the girl is his friend Sydney, and the boy on the right is him, and Sydney is thinking about Carson and calling him with the phone in her hand. So the big bubble above Carson in the picture is actually a thought bubble with Carson's head in it and he is below the bubble.
