Floor and Decor
Quality mother-in-law/son-in-law time. Utilizing Mom's expertise in the home decor field.
Adah woke up from bed to see what we had been up to. She's still sleepy but fits right in with our carvings.
Pear bourbon tart for dinner with our neighbors. Thank you, Baked, for this recipe I love.
Bidding farewell to a friend and relishing the fall charm that is The Fan.
The lone uncarved pumpkin keeps a lookout on the soggy street. It looks like he already got into one fight.
Just noting our old dryer before we stick a new one in it's place. Things like this remind us how far we've come and the small progresses we've made.
Under the stairs
Very serious electrical discussions going on here.
Fish dishes make working at the computer all day more fun.
Wiener dog onesie for Baby Girl Couch! Don't mind if I do give myself a pat on the back.
The patio form is set!
Celebrating Bob's birthday. Friends, family, and sweets.
The patio is poured! Don't walk on it. Side note: Cats can't read.
Road trip with college buds for an international rugby game! Pretty fun.
Day after hanging out. Jojo, the master, and Dexter, the dog.
A great fall roast. So much goodness in taste (and color)!
Crunch time. Got to get this goofy snail done for my first meeting with Whitt.
The patio is glazed! Side note: The cat prints didn't show up.
Whitt and his new snail. Clearly I have a problem with babies and knitted stuffed animals.
Here's a bad kitty photo. (Not a misbehaving kitty, just a poor quality photo kitty.)

This is what dinner looks like when I work at a Fall Dessert class.
I kind of like the spacey decor at this place.
Getting ready for the big day. I was not at all disappointed that I didn't have to make any pies for family Thanksgiving.
Pre-movie cartoons! A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. I want to go to the drive-in every night of my life! Okay maybe not that much, but a couple times a year is fantastic.
Christmas crafting has begun.
I found someone's secret stash of empty sunflower seeds...
Lame. But this is what Christmastime feels like (even though Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet). Festive pj's and a fire in the stove.
Craft corner. Going to town because I love paper!
So the night before Thanksgiving was always the night you go out when you're home and you run into everyone you ever went to high school with. I haven't been home for Thanksgiving in a couple years. We hung out with these bozos the night before the holiday and I felt like it was a piece of new family growing. It was cool and it made me less sad to not be in Arkansas.
Carving the Turkey Day...pig!
Another onesie to close it out.
