My Table

Was your Thanksgiving as lovely as mine? I hope so! This year I hosted the holiday at my house. If anything will make you feel like a bona fide adult, pulling a steaming turkey from the over would be it.

And if anything will make you feel like a bona fide Mormon, sewing your own table runner and napkins would be it.

Humor me as I show off my cute Thanksgiving table:

And humor me as I show off the kids table. The cub set it all by himself and, boy, was he proud.

Just finished refurbishing my grandpa's old oak dresser for Doug. You like?

The Party "Architect"

My parties may not be the most exciting, but I'll be darned if they don't look great. Designing the look, feel, and taste of the party brings me so much pleasure!
Here's the tablescape for this year's annual Lee Halloween Party.

And the traditional caramel apples (thanks for the labels, Tic!). I admit, these apples weren't all that tasty, but they made darling party favors.

I made almost all of the decorations myself. Spending money for Halloween decorations (of all holidays!) is downright ludicrous.

Outside we had more headstones with sayings like "Jeremy Blake...stepped on the gas instead of the brake" or "I may be dead, but you're ugly."

And here's some of our fabulous party guests.

Ryan is an I-pod touch. Keep your hands off his apps, ladies, they're all mine!

And here's the cutest trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood.
