Getting ready for Halloween!

Miles always loves to help out in the kitchen! This past week we made some sugar cookies! We delivered some to the boys at the shop and to grandma Karen...Miles had a good time doing this!

Miles is going to be a dinosaur this Halloween! He loved his costume and even made me take a picture of the tail (not posted on here).

What would Halloween be without a devil kitty? She always hangs around when we do stuff, but she gets grouchy with Miles when he tries to tackle her.

Miles the psycho-pants boy! He had a little too much fun with the carving knife!

Finished pumpkins!!! Yay, good thing I had a couple of candles lying around to put in the jack-o-lanterns or I would've been in trouble.

New Lawn

I'm so very excited to blog about our new lawn! We've had the landscapers working on our property for the past couple of weeks and I wasn't sure if we were getting a lawn in before winter or not...but it happened! It ended up being a lot more lawn than I expected, but we still have a TON of room for the garden, herbs and other plants and trees. It's amazing how different our house looks, and it will take some getting used to but I'm just so happy with how things are looking! Our landscapers have done such a good job and I can't wait until next spring and summer when we'll have pretty much everything set up for us!
Of course our boy Miles played on the grass a little bit tonight, but then he went back to his old favorites...mud and dirt. Oh well, I think he'll enjoy the lawn more next summer.

Not so good at this blog thing.

So I'm not very good at keeping up with this blog...I'll try a bit harder now that it's getting colder and I'm not spending so much time outside anymore.
We've been really busy this summer with the shop, the garden, canning, camping and stocking up on firewood. I'm very glad that we hired a good employee to take my place at the shop so I can stay at home with Miles and work on house stuff.
Our chickens have been laying a lot of eggs and I'm very excited about that, we get great fresh eggs!
Jason went hunting and got an elk so I'll be busy making jerky and canning meat here in the next few weeks.
This isn't the greatest post, I know, but I'm going to try to keep up now that the holidays are coming up!
