Santa's Secret Shed

Shhhhhh.  Don't tell my kids.  The other day I talked with Santa at the mall and he informed me he is bringing my little girl a play kitchen.  I'm so excited, she's going to love it! 

However, Santa was a bit concerned because the box is so big.  He was worried that with such a big box he may not be able to fit everything in his sleigh on Christmas Eve.  So, he asked if there was any possible way he could deliver the present early and hide it at our house until Christmas Eve when he'll put it under the tree. 

Yikes! At first I thought there was no possible way I'd be able to hide a present that large at our house.  WAIT!  Ding, ding!  I just remembered the new Lifetime shed that we built in our backyard.  It's an 8'x5' shed so it has plenty of room to hide a play kitchen box.  However, my son does likes to play in there sometimes and pretend it is his own little clubhouse.  Hmmm, that could pose a possible risk. 

Fortunately, Lifetime sheds feature holes in the door latch to accommodate a padlock!  So, when the kids were at school one day, Santa made his early delivery and I showed him where to store the big box in our Lifetime shed.  Now, the Christmas present is locked up tight so no curious little eyes can get an early peek.  (Plus, it helps protect the other valuables in the shed like our lawn mower etc. - which is a good answer if my son happens to ask why a lock suddenly appeared!)

We built the shed to store my husband's lawn equipment and it's his space to use as he pleases.  But, this month he'll have to share a little space with Santa. So glad we could help the jolly old man! Wink

Indoors at the Outdoor
For the past several years our company has participated in the Annual Outdoor Retailer Show at the Salt Palace in Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. You’ll find the show filled with aisle after aisle of camping gear, climbing gear, custom water craft, outdoor apparel and the like. This year at our booth you would have also found our sweet Fold-Up Utility Trailer and our convertible Yard Cart.But anyone who’s been to a trade show knows that besides touting your own wares, half of the reason you’re there is to see what everyone else is doing. So while meandering through the multitude of retailers just trying to keep up on relevant trends, I happened across some of our tables. A configuration of several card tables made for a very practical and common use of our product – a convenient meeting area to discuss the business of the day....
FORE!
We had a great time at the Lifetime Products company golf tournament this past Saturday. Instead of working in the yard like I usually do, it was nice to take the day off and dig in someone elses yard thats a jab at my divot taking when I golf. During the tournament I had to take a break much to the relief of my team mates to do an interview on the Homefront with Don Zeman radio show. I dont think my teammates missed me since I wasnt contributing all that much.It was a lot of fun to participate in the show. Don, the host, recently purchased an 8x10 Lifetime shed to replace his existing shed. I guess I shouldnt name the brand of shed he was replacing, but lets just say it was maid out of rubber and he didnt like it. He had a lot of complements about our shed and fortunately did most of the talking. (Dont you hate the way yo...
Pumpkin Carving Fun
For a fun family activity last night we thought it would be fun to do some pumpkin carving. It was an amusing evening that our two boys thoroughly enjoyed.As soon as I left work, I picked up the boys and we drove down to a local outdoor produce stand that always seems to have a great selection of pumpkins, all in different shapes and sizes, each one seemed to have their own personality. I think Josh and Jake changed their minds on which pumpkin they each wanted about eight times. Originally Josh was really set on a small pumpkin just a little bit larger than my fist, (I dont think I have the patience to carve a pumpkin that small), so I had to use my best diplomatic efforts to convince him to choose a different pumpkin. He eventually chose another one-- the largest one out there. Jake also chose one that I am sure outweighed ...
