If you know me at all you know I love to decorate. Let alone decorate for Halloween. This what I have come up with so far.


I finally got gravel in these two places. I wish I would have taken a before picture, so you can understand just how excited I am. We layed the turf barrier but wasn't able to do any thing further till this week. the wind would blow, and pick the barrier up and whip it around till it ripped some of it completely off. I replace the ripped part and then layed all the gravel I was doing it in the evening, and by the time I was done I had very little light left. I didn't get a good look at it till the next morning. i cant believe the difference it makes. It make it look so much more manicured.

My dresser

I have been looking for a dresser just like this one for 8 months at yard sales, and my trusty, reliable, Deseret Industries. That is where I found it. Good old DI. I had found one just a few days before this one, and I had been looking so long, I just about bought it. The thing that stoped me was, I thought it was to long. I am so glade I waited. This one was in better condition. All I had to do was reattach some of the drawer tracks, paint it, and add new hardware.  I put all my table linens in it, because just to the right is my table.


I had to post this one, because Randan is very proud of this batch of cinnamon rolls (he said it was his best yet). He came home one night, and wanted to make some cinnamon rolls, and who am I to stop him. I have to agree they were awesome. I made the frosting. That was the deal. He did the rolls, and I would make the frosting. I didn't put any frosting on this roll I wanted you to see the roll not a blob of frosting.


This is what I have been doing most of September. It all started with frozen raspberry, and strawberry jam. (Which like a idiot, I forgot to put them in my picture) then apricot juice, tomato's, apple pie filling, apples, peaches and finally pears. It was allot of work, but oh so worth it. The bottom picture is of Tucker when he got the strainer stuck on his head. I laughed and laughed. It was my first year of REALLY canning I have done a batch of jam here and there, but never at this level. It was totally fun,but I am all canned out. For this season at least.
P.S. I also did some peach jam which I also forgot to take a picture of.
