November Round-Up

I decided to do another one of those "catch-up" posts I do now and then because I have a collection of many different pictures which don't really need their own posts. These were all taken in November.

Lauryn has become quite the little tattoo artist! We have to be fairly diligent to keep her away from pens/markers/pencils, etc.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
 Joe designed a purple truck and a pirate ship with Lego.

Lauryn absconded with a (mostly empty) bag of powdered sugar. This is actually after I cleaned up a bit:

I snuggled with my little ladies.

I made apple cider one night for the family. I started out making it for Jeff, because he loves it, but expanded it when everyone came sniffing around.

The ponytail! She's drinking out of a special German cup from my childhood.
Selah is using Daddy's special childhood cup.
Joe, reading Dilbert.
Buttermilk Biscuits. My goodness, they're delicious. Until recently, it had been a source of great personal shame for me as a Southern woman that I could not make good biscuits. Everything changed when I found Alton Brown's recipe.

For My Mother

Hey, Mom! I got my hair cut! ;) Jeff basically told me I was getting a mullet.*


Thanks, Whitney!

*Not really.

Saturday Project

Jeff and I finally got around to a project I've had on my list for a very long time: the huge wall in our master bedroom. I think what motivated me was that I came to a decision on how I wanted to decorate in there. The long walls are a light gray with white trim, and the short walls are a gray-green. The idea is that everything in the room (bedding, too, eventually) will be white/gray and the accent color will be green. That said, here's the start to our long, blank, boring wall!

At some point, I'll add more sconces to the ends of this arrangement.

The windows are from my parents' old house.

It's subtle, but here is a picture with the candles lit.
