Before I met Richard, I lived on my own. I had my own tools and knew how to use them, but only used them as needed. But, now for the most part I don't have to, even though it is nice to know I can do things on my own if needed.
Richard is rather handy when it comes to woodworking. He made Blake's bed, which you've seen pics of in the past and he made our bed as well as assorted other things in the garage and in the house. His latest projects have been for the boys (ok so Blake's the only one who can utilize them right now, but Colby will soon too)
The first is something that I really wanted him to make... we are calling it the "kid holder". Blake loves to help out in the kitchen, but Richard doesn't like him standing on chairs. (Me... well I'm vertically challenged so I grew up standing on chairs all the time, and still do, so it doesn't bug me as much)
So here it is...
The second thing is the sandbox (which is Blake's birthday present!)
I don't always let him know how much I appreciate the big and little things he does to help around the house and with the boys, but I know he knows that we love him lots!
