Fabulous 40!

This is what greeted me upon returning from my 40th birthday morning run . . .

And this . . .
My girl and dog . . .
and my man's bum,
but don't look at that, okay?

 I'm 40.
I'm proud.
I'm a hot mama.
Or so Todd tells me.
I love the way he lies . . .
Bubba Deux spots a rabid squirrel!

Actually the squirrels aren't rabid.
They like to feast on my garden,
so I don't hold them in high regard.

Our front porch was the place to be that day.
Homemade cards are the best.

Pineapple upside down cake is the 2nd best.
Did I mention I was 40?
Me, rocking the au natural look.
But then who cares when there's whip cream to put on pineapple upside down cake?

Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes.
I can't wait to see what this year brings.

Yours Truly,
The 40 Year Old Hot Mama!

Happy October!

I'm so excited the holiday season has finally arrived!

I mean, I've only waited TEN whole months for this.

T'was a few days before Halloween . . .
okay fine . . .
 a few weeks before Halloween
and all through the house,
the decorations are FINALLY up . . .

I got this groovy idea from Christel . . .
Christel used a painters canvas, mine is wood.
 Just thought I'd practice before trying the real thing.

I love my Halloween-y curtains!
And I found these orange shag rugs up in my attic.
Perfect for Halloween!

Mr. Pumpkin Head is filled with Halloween Oreos . . .
and he's got his eye on my caramel apple!
Death to Mr. Pumpkin!
Oh wait, that comes later. . .
We love caramel apples!
'We' being french for Cali and I.
The boys won't eat caramel apples.
Boys are weird.

I saw this on someone else's door.
So I was a copy cat and made one for ours.
Except I hung it in our family room.
Which makes me a semi-copy cat.

I took our Halloween tablecloth and gave it a new life . . .
I cut it in two and made valences for our dining room/school room windows.

My kids already hard at work with the tricks . . .
Huh! As if I wouldn't notice a big green ripper on my car seat!
Silly Rabbit!
Tricks are for . . . uh, oh yeah . . . kids.
Happy Halloween Everyone!
