10 on 10: December

10 on 10:
Ten photos taken during one day or event, documenting that day or event, and posted on the tenth of the month.
I wasn't sure if I could pull off my 10 on 10 this month- things have been hectic around here!  But I really didn't want to miss the last one, so I've cobbled together some photos of our Thanksgiving weekend to share…

This year our Thanksgiving was a little different.  For me, it was the first time in fifteen years that we didn't have Thanksgiving with my family or Paul’s family.  For Paul, it was the first time ever.  His parents retired out of the area earlier this year and we spent Thanksgiving last year with my family so we planned on just a quiet day for the four of us at home.   Good friends heard our plans though and insisted that we join them instead, which ended up being a ton of fun for the grown-ups and kids! 

The day after Thanksgiving Paul is always itching to start getting the Christmas decorations out so we spent the rest of the weekend picking out our tree and decorating.  And then, because we didn't wind up with any leftover turkey Paul decided to smoke a turkey on Sunday after Thanksgiving.   We’re still eating the leftovers of his "small” (if 17 lbs for 2 adults and 2 kids is considered small!) bird!

(p.s.- halfway through these photos my logo changes- been working on some things as the first steps of getting a little business set up!  I still have some tweaking to do with the logo for when I use it as a copyright but I'm getting there!)

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…

11 Days, 2 Parties, 6 Cakes, and 600 Miles...

Phew!  The past two weeks have been pretty hectic and LP and I are just starting to recover! 

We started last weekend with a big bbq bash at our house.  We had about 30 people over (about half were under the age of 3- yikes!) and made a ton of food.  Grillmaster Paul smoked 3 racks of ribs, made pulled pork (which he started smoking at 7 a.m.!), grilled chicken wings, and made all of the various rubs and sauces to go with each.  DELICIOUS. 

Unfortunately, I only got one photo of the whole thing:

A few days later it was Paul's birthday so his parents came over to celebrate over a big meal of Paul's favorite pasta dish.  It's a dish he ate while we were on our honeymoon- the restaurant chef was nice enough to send me the recipe so I could recreate the meal for our first anniversary and it has since become the go-to dish for Paul's birthday every year.  Yummy smoked gouda, pancetta, and artichokes tossed with pasta- delicious!

He blew out 9 candles on his cake (I didn't…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…
