"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Better Late Than Never

I've been sitting on this project for a while:

I used leftover wood scraps from this project back in the dizz-ay, spray painted them red, attached photos and hung them with twine. Now the naked wall in Pepper's room isn't glaringly bare anymore. I love these pictures, even if they are outdated by a few months. (Phew! Glad to have this project out of the way, finally!)

Oh, You Know...

...Just makin' some cards:

My job holds regular make-'n-takes as a little perk, and I'm never opposed to filling out my card stash. These fun employee events always seem to roll around just when I'm thinking about adding to my depleted pile of cards, funny enough. Of course I make them my own...rules-schmules and all that. (All supplies from Close To My Heart.)

Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse

Or, you know, just preparing because it's a smart thing to do:

I love joining my momma and sisters making freezer meals. It is 2-3 intense days with early mornings and late nights, but it is totally worth it. We ended up with dozens of meals and side dishes (not to mention healthy and delicious granola) that are going to last us several months. I was going to give you a total, but it's too much to count so you'll just have to take my word for it that we made a lot. We're getting really good at freezer meals, if I do say so.

Having a meal that is already made and only needs to be heated up helps us during our busy work weeks, which is a total lifesaver. It also allows us to be ready at a moment's notice to help someone else in the dinner department. Chicken noodle soup, anyone?

Our family loves Halloween, and here are just a few ways we all celebrated the happenin' holiday:

Are you big Halloween fans? What did you guys do?
