The playhouse

For a few years now I have been harassing Studly Cowboy about building the kids a playhouse...what a sad childhood it would be not to have your own little clubhouse where you can plot against your parents....I've heard this is what children do......myself had a sad childhood where no little clubhouse was in sight.....sigh......
So this year Studly Cowboy came up with the idea to build a log cabin for the kids.....
When we were out loading logs for this little venture my job was to help Ian load them into the back of the truck....I think we only accomplished about 4 total....why? we asked are they so stinkin big!! Can't we just get those little ones?!? Yes we moaned and dragged our feet....sadly I was probably worse than the kids!! Have you ever tried to load a 10" log?
No?.....next time I'll be calling you.....
So in a nutshell I don't think any of us were very supportive and helpful to Studly Cowboy.....I would say we were down right lAzY and dOUtfUl about the whole project.....
This weekend the roof went on and I have to say I wish I would have had this when I was growing up....hell I might just move into it tomorrow....a lot less drafty that the house I'm living in now....


So Studly Cowboy THANK YOU for giving up your summer, carrying on through all the non supportive comments (that is putting it nicely....I am nice...) and giving the kids a place where many adventures (and parent plottings) will surely take place....I'm sure most of the plotting will be against yours truly....who could plot against the one who gave you THE PLAYHOUSE?!?!?
please don't ask what Clancey is doing....all I said was strike a pose.....

Hi Kristin,

I love the playhouse, I bet your kids are enjoying it too. Is your store still open right now? Are you going to do any kind of Christmas sale. I saw on secondhandchicks blog you had some really cute things. I love your store I told Cody he could probably get my whole Christmas there! I wish your hours and my hours meshed better so I could of stopped in this summer. I hope you had a nice season. Lee Grundy
