We Need Some Bucks!

It's time to winterize...
Even though the temperatures are warm, we know the winter is coming.

These little guys have a reason why they want to help us winterize.
They need some bucks!
You'd think he was in another "Amazing Race."

While one dashes madly back and forth....
The other tries to eat his cookies and carries two chairs at a time.

The competition is on!

Do I get bucks for watering your flowers, Oma?

And he's taking the kitchen slop out to the compost pile,
meanwhile trying to eat a carrot in one hand and push the wheelbarrow with another.

It was not an 'amazing race', just an afternoon to winterize.
These boys are joining us for a week in Hawaii...
And they needed some extra bucks!


  1. It looks like you found some good hired help! I think I need to do some jobs for Hawaii money, too! Sounds like fun.

  2. What a win win situation for Oma and the boys!

  3. Those boys know a good thing when they see it! I'm thinking about how every year they'll get stronger and more capable and will be happy to do work for bucks.

  4. This is so cute! What a great way to earn some bucks and for such a worthy cause - Hawaii no less!!! One can work and eat at the same time - smart kid! I could use some buck earners over here too.

  5. What great helpers you have! I could've used their help last week, when I was gathering up the cushions, etc. from the metal chairs on the patio. But after a bit of struggle I got everything stuffed back in its corner of the garage, so we are ready for the next onslaught of wind and rain. xoxox

  6. Did their bucks hold out through their Hawaiian vacation? Win/win situation...Ellen said it right.
