Husband of Dreams

My husband is the type of guy that "if you want it bulit, it will be built". He is such a handy guy and because of that saves us a TON of money. He can change oil, rotate tires, do brakes and rotors, build things, paint things, etc etc etc. HE ROCKS!

He is teaching our son to be handy too. Today JP wanted to build a clubhouse, so after 1 hour a bit of sweat and absolutely $0 spent....a clubhouse was done.

DONE I tell ya!

5 minutes latter 4 neighbor kids were all ooing and aahing at the clubhouse complete with mailbox.

Now many of you are thinking: clubhouse? That boy already has a clubhouse---the pirate ship.

Yes, last summer my son had a dream of having a pirate ship in the back yard. So my husband built one afternoon and for $0. Yep, he rocks!

The best part of this clubhouse today is that it shows JP how to build things and build things with supplies you already have. So someday when JP's wife says "can you build me a bookcase by friday"

He will say "Yes, dear." Just like he daddy did for me a few short weeks ago!

Love ya babe!

Aaron is one of the nicest guys I know. Great list.

I didn't realize his bday was in December. Why did I not know that?

Fun post! I am impressed with his skills. My hubby has many skills, but he is not handy! :)

My husband is the same way. It sometimes amazes me what he figures out on his own. He build our house deck and pool deck. He put in our ceramic tile and wood floors. I could go on and on.
Our youngest son loves to help him and will, I think, turn out just like him. My dad was the same way. I always knew that I wanted to marry someone like him!
