Will the casket fit?

Thursday night, Chris came home from school just after 8 and decided to start digging for the retaining wall. Why? The man isn’t capable of sitting still.

Sure it was dark.

Sure he was working by a single flashlight beam.

Sure he was using a pick axe and a shovel.

After a couple hours, the neighbors began to cluster on their front lawns and stare.

I walked out to Chris and whispered, ‘Hon, I think the neighbors are assuming you are burying a body out here.’

Very seriously he leaned on the shovel, looked at me, and said, ‘Babe, when I bury a body, I’m burying it in the backyard.’

When? When he buries a body?

We dug most of the weekend (Chris doing most of the work) and our yard now looks like….

Sunday we enjoyed the company of Cousin Lisa, Jeff, and Josh. I didn’t have my camera so you’ll have to forgive my lack of pictures.

We don’t see enough of them!!

Where the heck is the photographer for Better Homes and Gardens when you need them?
