Tackle-It Tuesdays!!! #11


Just dropping in quickly to show you our hall closet, being changed into a "game closet"...Dad and Cope are building this together, and I am documenting...

The gals over at 5MinutesFromMom.Com host these Tackle-it-Tuesdays....so what are you tackling?
(Big or small- it doesn't matter- this is time to toot your own horn about anything you tackled)





Dad, measuring from the coat rod, how many inches down will each shelf go? 3 shelves? 4 shelves? Hummm....





















Making it look official...notice his 'tan lines'? Can you tell he works outside everyday in the desert sun?

















Dad helping Cope steady the drill as he drills his first screw into the wall...and yes, he had to have his black Spider Man costume on while doing so.




















All shelves complete! Now please sweep up all the dust bunies and saw dust!















A proud Cope and Dad...we have yet to fill the shelves with games, but we will! The nights just go by so quickly! Ill post "after" pics when it is completed!
*See my little princess trying to snake her way into the pic behind daddy?

Your husband has the same look on his face that my husband gets when he's proud of himself. Sooo cute.

That is one job well done!

I did a game closet under my stairs that covers the access to my crawl space. The lower part still hangs short coats but I have two shelves above for games. I love it. Everything stays so much nicer and now we don't lose all the pieces. The boys did a good job on the closet and have a right to be proud!!

It's great to see fathers and sons do stuff together! Something your son will never forget, I'm sure.

Putting away garden furniture in the shed, raking leaves. Admiring the neighbors Halloween decorations. Oh, and we bought a new snowblower at Sears on the weekend. Old Man Winter--we're ready!
