Mommy Day and a MAJOR award

Hey, friends!
Today was a TOTAL mom day. Ok.  Maybe I just mean it was a MONDAY.  haha! 
Let me clarify.
Every day is a mom day for me{which I love}, but some days it just seems like all you do is go from one thing to the next with no break in between.  Make sense?   I usually sneak in a project here and there, or something that I, personally, like to do besides cater to four HUNGRY, hyper, needy children!  LOL!
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE  staying home with my kids and wouldn't have it any other way.  :-) 

{Really, they ARE sweet.  When they're fed.}

Truthfully, I'm very  blessed!  My {older} daughters totally help me out and lighten the load for me.  I have delegated laundry, vacuuming, lawn mowing, chicken/duck care{heehee} to my girls, and although I'm a total control freak, my life runs so much more smoothly when I let them help. :-) 

But it's not easy for me to do.

Today, lots of laundry was done, meals were prepared,  I cleaned out the vacuum, vacuumed the whole house{it's small, so it doesn't take long...YAY!},  intervened to several near disasters{not really}, broke up some wrestling matches{really}, and was drill sargeant to some urchins my children who seem to think our yard is their dumping spot for empty cracker boxes and other various items....REALLY?????
I guess I'll keep repeating myself. :-) 

GO PICK THAT UP!!!!!! {or else you'll be grounded for a YEAR}!!!

Well, the chicken coop project  is well under way and I have several photos to share with you, but first I need to get them off of my camera.  You see, I got all giddy one day with the progress my husband was making, so I grabbed the camera ans started snapping away.
Only problem?  The SD card wasn't IN IT!  Total bummer.
AND...I cannot find the cord to transfer them.  Anyone out there know how I can get them off{maybe transfer TO the SD card or something???}
Anyway, I really want to post the progress IN ORDER, so I'll have to figure that out and somehow get those pictures!

*on temporary hiatus due to operator error*

While you're waiting for me to get myself together, here are some shots of the boys 'building' with their dad today.

Henry and his stool that he built{mostly}!  He was VERY proud!

Here is Jack avoiding the camera having a good 'ol time!
He built a stool, too, but wouldn't stand still long enough for me to get a pic.

Do you see the progress on the coop?!?!  YAY!  We are buying paint tomorrow and finishing the back wall.

      1. sheath·ing
        noun /ˈSHēT͟HiNG/ 
        sheathings, plural
        1. Protective casing or covering
          • Sheets of rigid material (often plywood) attached to the framework of a building to strengthen it and to underlie siding or roofing

      Sorry, I always thought it was in sheets of wood, but no. It's sheathing.
      Lesson learned.

      Guess what else happened today?
      We were the recipients of a MAJOR award. 

      Remember this movie?
        Alright, so it's not a leg lamp, but it did come in a box that looks like this...

      ....and it was 'FRA-GEEEE-LAY'.  
      What a great surprise it was! 
      I'll show you some pictures of our prize very soon. :-) 
      I hope you had a wonderful day!
