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!
