We worked hard all weekend, but somehow don't have much to show for it. Marc was very busy finishing the upper wall niche box. This niche will house some glass shelves in front of the recycled Coca-Cola sign. Check out our LED light too. The wood from the wall will wrap into the sides of the box.
Other fun things were going on too. Franca and I did some pre-party work: potted some mums, got some pumpkins and spider-webbed the front of the house. I have some spiderwebs for the interior too. Marc is pretty pumped about those because he said: "Hey, put them where we have real spiderwebs so we don't have to clean!"
We have some other additions to go on the front to decorate for Halloween, but we will have to see if we have time for those. (If you know of any funny Halloween exterior decorating ideas, please leave me a comment!)
I also discovered that now with Franca crawling even only backwards, it is hard to keep her out of trouble outside. I put her on a blanket and she scoots to the edge and eats leaves. :) So I resorted to our new DIY playpen: the laundry basket! We still use her big playpen, but this one is good for quick jobs and transportation.
In other big news, she got a tooth! Finally! (She is almost 8 months.)
