Workin' It

Photo by Joyana
This is my Sweet Husband at work. Isn't he just adorable in his Jenco shirt? And he's got pics of kids on his desk, and one of Bella's drawings hung up behind him - so cute. He works so hard for our family, and I am indescribably grateful for him. So thankful that I am blessed to be able to be a stay at home mommy, because he is a hard working daddy! Of course, his work doesn't just end at the office...he puts in some overtime at home too.

Here he is working at home, on Azure's Leprachaun Trap project.
{I know, that was months ago, but it seems to fit here too.}

Yes, he actually busted out the drill to work on a kindergarten school project.

Dan with a glue gun? So crafty. Love it!
The girls had a great time with him figuring out the best way to trap a little green guy.

And here is the creative final project. You'll notice there are four leaf clovers and gold stuck on the house, as a lure for the leprachaun. You'll also see footprints, guiding him right where he needs to go. Then you'll notice the vial of green potion that will make the leprachaun really sleepy. Then of course, the trap bed. Once he's sleepy, he'll lie down on the "bed" which is actually hollow, and attached to a trip wire. Once the leprachaun falls through the bed, it pulls the wire, which knocks down the straw, which closes the blue lid, and voila! You've got yourself one trapped leprachaun. The best part is... it's all fully functioning. Incredible, right?
Great WORK Daddy! Love you!
