Learning the art of carpentry early.

For Christmas my sweet hubby built the boys wood working stations. He had spent the year prior teaching the boys basic things about carpentry and felt it was time to produce a proper space for them to create. He did an amazing job!  It has everything they need to create at a comfortable kid friendly level.

Daddy helps with the hard cuts.

This is their miter saw table. 

Mason is hiding money in his.

I know it looks a total mess but if you went into my sewing room you would say the same thing when I'm in the middle of projects, which is most of the time, so I can appreciate the beauty in this mess of ideas not fully brought to fruition.  They are building rocket ship toys with secret hidden compartments in these photos.  I love their imagination!

Here are a few other things they have created.  Most of what they make they make on their own.  Nate made me the doll house bed for Christmas and the boat and car were a rainy day project when mom and dad were busy with their own chores and projects.  Our house is full of these handmade treasures and I love nothing more than to see my kids playing with something they made with their own hands!

Ephesians 5:15-17
Look carefull then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
