The natural artists!

When I was about 8 months pregnant I looked out my window to see our new neighbors cutting down all 5 of their trees in their yard. 2 oak, 1 elm, 1 hackaberry, and 1 bradford pear. Now, they don’t have a big yard and trees are spares in this area. (I have a small dogwood growing in my front yard and that’s it!)

Anywho, long story short I got them to put the Hackaberry and the Elm in my yard cut up.

I’m not sure what I was thinking because now I needed to cut them up further and I couldn’t exactly do that at 8 months pregnant. Not in our neighborhood. Someone would report me. I got in trouble just mowing my yard. I had to wait until my neighbors went to work to mow the front!

So my dad and husband came to the rescue and cut up the logs for me! YAY!

When I saw the larger cut chunks I told my 3 year old son that we would do some art work on them.

Well, today was the day!







Check out this look of concentration!!!



So if you have any stumps laying around, this might be a nice in-the-shade project!
