Lincoln Logs -- and Mark

Today while shopping at Sam's Club with Natie, I ran across something that I had sworn that 'if I ever find these at Costco or Sam's I will buy them!' -- Lincoln Logs! I played with them in Dallas with Daniel and Ben last month and loved them (I know I must be disadvantaged because I have never played with them before!) and I wanted them for our upstairs loft/kids' play area. We already have Tinker Toys, we have a race car set, puzzles, giant Mr. Potato Head, Legos, wooden beads to string, many books for storytime, finger puppets, balls, etc. etc. etc. We have a lot of good stuff up there. (I forgot the b-ball target and the reindeer chair!) But I wanted Lincoln Logs. So today, there they were. On a day when I am feeling broke. And they are in a huge round tub, advertised on the front as the 'biggest set we offer', that contains 304 pieces. It's a town! Stonybrook Town. How do I not buy these today?

You have to understand that on Saturday I snapped at Mark for wanting to spend $20 at Home Depot -- for stuff he needs for the yard -- so today I'm spending $50 on Lincoln Logs. Right. I'm the luckiest person in the world though -- he came home for lunch and got so excited about our big huge tub of Lincoln Logs. "I know you've been wanting those for the kiddoes! Yay!" was his comment. What a good man.

I love the new Lincoln Logs! And I love my wonderful husband who never ever makes me feel badly about anything. He really doesn't.

So I guess this post is really not about Lincoln Logs -- it's about how lucky I am to have such a lovely husband in my life.

Gotta love these good men! What a sweetie. Don't worry, you teach piano lessons, you can justify anything you get for the grandkids! You've earned it!

I haven't heard about Lincoln Logs since I was a kid. Glad to see they are still around.

I love Lincoln Logs. I played with them all the time growing up. My little nephew got some for his birthday last month. Gotta love it. What a sweet grandma you are.
