What do you mean child labor laws.....

Living in the cold, bitter, snowy state that we do, it is imperative that we have enough wood cut for the winter ahead of time. A few short weeks ago Lispy the wonder helper, helped me throw in wood that we had cut last spring. The reason I call him the wonder helper is because, well you wonder if he is going to help or not. He goes in streaks - he works his little tale off....











Then, well - this speaks for itself right....


I do have to say he is a good helper for the most part. He tries to do things WAY to hard for him and most of the time he does a GREAT job. He is so strong for his age that it is supriseing and scary - especially when he comes into the kitchen toating Milk Dud who WAS sleeping on the bed, but now is blinking trying to figure out what they haydiddle is going on.
This is what a waking moment looks like for Milk Dud...

And here is the best baby sitter in the world. Not only is he FREE but he works well with others....



This is always a good sight at the end of a day....


This is a pillow case he is laying in. I had just folded the sheets to be put away and he grabed this because it was warm from the dryer....

SO, that is it for now. I will be back hopefully later today with a recipe that I have for pork chops that is so easy Big Son could make them.

My children like to sleep in pillowcases too. They pretend they are sleeping bags, even though they have real sleeping bags they could sleep in. And I love the wonder worker child. We have one of those too.

Your kids are SO cute:) My daughter is 16, and STILL likes to wrap up in something that has just come out of the dryer. Oh, who am I fooling? I like it too;)

Sorry to hear about the calf. (Believe it or not, I thought about him over the weekend, and wondered how the little guy was making out.) Yes, it is part of life, but it's just so incredibly sad.

That is funny about the pillow case. My daughter just found a yellow one that she has adopted as her new blankie. LOL

Found you via PDub. Love your writing!

My kids are grown up and out of the house and I still nearly walk out of a store without my bags... because ya know the kids are suppose to get and carry those to the car! LOL

Hey Heidi - because of your post back in Sept. about Sauerkraut I'm the proud owner of 19 pints. My neighbor was an expert kraut maker and baptized me in cabbage and salt this fall. MMMM mmmm yummy! I posted about it on my blog but wanted to say Thanks to you for your post that sparked my interest. So Thanks!

I have to laugh about him sleeping in the pillowcase. Everyone in my family loves clothes right out of the dryer......including the Chihuahua's. I put the clean, warm clothes on the couch while I fold them and the dogs run over because they want to snuggle in the clean towels!

There's a Seinfeld episode where Kramer gets addicted to warm clothes out of the dryer. Your son is a good problem solver, that's for sure!
