Project 365 - week 43

 Week 43.

I was sad to see my son leave to go back to college at the beginning of the week.  We had so much fun with him here over fall break.  However, would you believe that we did NOT play ONE board game?!!  I think that is a first, but these boys were tired and slept a majority of the time they were here!!! .....and then ate the rest of the time!! ha!

Here's my week:
Sunday

Our church had a picnic outside after the service today.  
It was a perfect day for a picnic and so fun!

 Monday

Pumpkin bread is a family favorite!
I made some today for Jason to take back to school.

Tuesday
Jason left to go back to college today :(
We had such a great visit with him and his roommate.
This is what I found after he left.....oh.my.word......look how clean this room is!
I love him!

Wednesday
My Thankful Tree is filling up!

Thursday
Steve is sick AGAIN with a bad cold....ugh.
This time we are trying this.

Friday
Alyssa has been wanting to decorate the walls of her apartment but she is on a budget.  Today we went out and found this cute fabric and stretched it on a canvas.  All was on sale and it turned out so cute!!!
We then covered some smaller canvases with a coordinating fabric.  She is going to pin pictures on those and hang them on either side of the larger one!!
We were both very pleased with how they turned out...and I had a great afternoon with my girl!

Saturday
 My big kids, plus two of Jared's friends carved pumpkins today.
They turned out GREAT!
 Now to roast the seeds!!!


So how was your week?

love those pumpkins, they did a great job. I can't believe how clean your son's room is. I really like that fabric, certainly perfect for a hanging

Oh, no. Sick AGAIN?! Emergen-C works really well.

And...WOW!!!! Your kids did a FABULOUS job on those pumpkins!! I'm completely amazed! Did they have patterns or something, or is that freehand?

It was great to get around to catch up. I hope to back to P365 this week, God willing.

I don't think I've ever seen either of my boys rooms looking half that clean.

Hugs & love,
