Redneck Basketball

You know your a redneck when.....
you drill diaper boxes and Coors Light boxes to your wall to play indoor basketball!

Yes that would be us...
Kaylee wanted to play basketball with Uncle Josh so he improvised and hung the diaper box on the wall.  Well Kaylee kept getting mad that she couldn't make a basket cause it was to high.  So daddy decided to make a hoop down low for Kaylee using a Coors Light box.

So we had a great time as a family hanging out on Sunday night playing REDNECK BASKETBALL.
Kaylee had a lot of fun and she's continuing to have fun with it.
Maybe a little tykes basketball hoop is in her future for her birthday.

Even though it looks ridiculous having these boxes hanging up in the house, it makes my girls happy and that's all that matters. Right?!

Our dog Kona is leaving tomorrow for the next 8 weeks (insert sad face)
We are taking her to the breeders so that she can have her puppies.
She is the biggest she's ever been, so maybe this means she's gonna have a lot of pups.
I'm sad that she's leaving, I always get sad when it's time for the puppies to come cause she's leaving for so long.  But 3 weeks after the puppies are due we usually go visit her.  We may not visit her until the she's ready to come home cause on her last liter someone knocked on the door and she flipped out and stepped on one of her puppies and it later died.  So we probably wont see the pups until their about 6 weeks old.

On top of Kona leaving this week, Daddy is also leaving this week! (insert another sad face)
Daddy is leaving early Thursday morning to fly to Texas.  He'll be there until Monday.
So it will be just the girls & I plus Uncle Josh.  I am glad my brother will be here cause I don't like being at home with just the girls & I by ourselves.

Daddy is going to Texas for some work and a little play.
I know the girls & I are going to miss him.
But the weather this week/end so we'll try to pass the time by....
- going to the park
- doing St. Patrick's Day crafts
- playing outside on our swings

While the girls nap mommy is going to be working on more sewing projects for both girls!
Have a great week!


  1. This is the funniest thing!! I love the boxes HA
    So when can I put in my order for an outfit? You are doing an awesome job

  2. Those boxes are a cute idea! You should just spray paint them or have the girls decorate them so you can keep them up :)

  3. hehe! My husband works for Miller/Coors so we appreciated this :)

  4. Funny! We have a little tikes hoop that the girls play with Lee---check garage sales and craigslist--we got ours for a couple bucks! People don't like to store those big things when their kids outgrow them :-)

  5. Hahaha That's wonderful! Having boxes hanging on your wall just for the fact it makes your daughters happy shows what great Momma you are!

  6. LOVE your redneck basketball. Noted for our next rainy day :)

  7. LOVE the basketball hoops you guys made! Very unique, but I bet it kept them entertained! Good luck with dog and the new puppies!! =)

  8. Haha, this is awesome!! What a great idea! ;)
