Beauties, Cuties & don't let the door hit ya!

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend to close out the summer!  I can't lie; I'm so so happy to see summer go!  I've never been a summer girl to begin with.  I do love going down the shore, walking the boards, seeing the ocean & listening to the waves crashing & seagulls cawing overhead, but laying on the beach covered in sunscreen with sand blowing all over me, making my skin feel like raw sandpaper, uh, no.  Plus, having to guard any delicious treats you might have from those aforementioned seagulls, who swipe down like stealth bombers, snatching your treat right out of your hand, uh, no.  Blasphemy, right?  I drive my real life & Facebook summer loving friends absolutely crazy when I start posting Pinterest Fall & Halloween ideas all over my FB page, as well as Fall countdowns!  They're like "nooooooooo, stooooppppp".  I'm like, sorry sistah!  I say to summer as it heads out the door, don't let the door hit ya where the...well you know.  :)

So, yes, I am completely decorated for Fall & Halloween.  I started about a week ago.  My dear husband carted all my decoration crates up from the basement to the living room after I sorted through everything to try to condense a little.  I have a teensy habit of going a little overboard when holiday decorating.  Just a little bit.  As my cousin said when I posted a few photos of my decorations strewn about while I was laying my ground plan, he said it looked like Halloween exploded all over my house!  Excuse me?  Obviously he just doesn't get it.  You notice I said "he".  Explains everything, right?

We had a crab fest on Sunday, the 4th, so that everyone could relax on Monday, Labor Day, before heading to work today.  OMG.  I've never seen so many crabs at once.  Why did we think we needed two bushels for 15 people?  Especially when a few of those people hardly ate any crabs.  I had 18,000 steps on my Fitbit just from standing at the stove cooking crabs all day.  They were good though.  I did one batch in Old Bay, and the other three in my famous olive oil, garlic & beer recipe.  I don't think I want to see another crab until next summer though.

I was so busy cooking crabs I forgot to take any pics of the beauties, so here are a few pics of my cuties, my three grandsons, four year old Wes, three year old Gavin, and two year old Luc!
