More wood for winter!

My dad and brother have been so awesome and getting us some slabwood so we can burn for winter. We do have electric heat but the wood is much better financially so we only burn wood all winter...so it takes a lot of wood. This is about 3 1/2 loads laying here and my brother cut up a load and a half...the boys stacked it up under the porch...you can see it in the background under the porch. I am hoping to get at least 3 more loads...for 8 loads total...maybe a couple more. The loads are $15 each....for what we are paying for ALL of the wood one months electric bill running the electric heat would be about twice that much....and NE Ohio winter does not last for just one month!!;) This bottom picture is for Lori and Alison....do you see why I say we look like hillbillies?? I stepped back just a couple of steps from the first picture just so you could see some of the endless toys that adorn our yard! LOL!

We haven't gotten our load of wood yet this year, we may still have enough from last year....we have a woodburning/oil furnace....and the winters here are cold, so we almost have to burn wood, or we may as well burn dollar bills...oh, and CONGRATULATIONS on your number 6 baby!!
