So we have finished the shed and the playground. As you can tell from the photos we are creating a flower garden on the side of the shed. We are then doing gravel in front of the shed (the grass is dead in front of it since Les moved the sprinklers and we need to get rid of the grass for the gravel anyways). We also need to do the bark around the playground and get the play sand for inside the sandbox part. I am so excited. We are actually making progress.

We are going to HAWAII !!!!

So I just got home from work where I won a $100 gift card and then I won an all expenses paid trip for 4 to HAWAII. Les wouldn't even believe me! Once he got over being stunned he said he may want to leave the kids here..:( I am not so sure about that, but we will see. I am just so freakin excited right now! Remember my last post when I said that we have been pretty lucky lately?!? It just keeps coming!

New Job and Home Projects

I haven't posted for quite a while which is quite unusual for me. I have been working long hours helping to implement a new computer system at work and our little family has had a lot of projects going on.

As of Monday I have started a new position at Provo Craft. I am now in the finance department taking care of pricing and controling the inventory as it promises to orders. I am loving it so far and am so ready for the change and challenge it will bring.

Les finally got the shed he has been talking about for a year and a half. We spent a couple days painting the exterior and it looks great. He had to change around the sprinkling system where it went so that took a while too. We are now in the process of constructing a flower bed on the west side of the shed which is turning out quite nicely. Next we have to gravel from the patio to the shed and construct a ramp so that he can use it.

I bought the girls one of those play sets that pretty much has everything a kid would want/need. We have yet to put it up, but hopefully soon. It has a tunnel slide, rock wall, 2 slides, glider, top fort, sandbox, stools and even flower boxes on the windows of the fort. They are really excited for it. Until yesterday there was a big willow tree that hung over our fence into our yard that would have given a lot of shade for the play set, but the wind storm split it in half and it has been cut down. Total bummer!

We registered Addison for dance class for this next year yesterday. She is really excited to continue to dance. She does a great job!

We have been really happy with the way everything is turning out this last month. Not to be pessimistic, but I am just waiting for it to all come crashing down the way things do when life is just too good.
