menu plan monday ~ october 5, 2015

We had a busy weekend. Genny came down to open our Christmas decorating season. Yes, it’s early. No, we don’t mind. DH brought down three trees for the addition. The blue/silver tree, the downstairs bath tree, and the Putz tree. The Putz tree had yellowed a bit, so DH gave it some spray paint treatments. He gave it a coat of light blue, then white over that. It’s on the side porch now, airing out. I won’t know if the paint treatment did the trick or not until I can decorate it, though I do like the faintly blue color with the white over it.

We didn’t get to the other trees. But the kittens are finding them fascinating.

It took all weekend to do the chalkboard tree. I printed patterns, Genny chalked…

I worked on ornaments for our family Christmas party in December.
