We are working feverishly to complete the inside decorations before the party. M thinks we are 95% complete but I would estimate it more like 65%. We have just had the perfect storm of problems hit us this October. I am stretched super thin at my office and will have to put in 65 hour (6 day) work weeks which will really impact projects a lot! Also, poor M has had an awful time with her gallbladder and she is scheduled to get it out.. 1 month from now. Till then, it is touch and go with terrible pain. Mash that all together with our considerable Halloween commitments around town and BAM! you have my life for the next few weeks.
Still, stressful as it is this year, I love every minute of it!
Here are some pictures of the first floor of the house and what we have done so far.
The Meade Manor Mantle 2016!
Gizmo really isn't a decoration but he slept like this the entire time we worked on the living room.
You can see the steps from the first floor so I included this view.
One of the only shots of the kitchen thus far. I will take more the closer to complete we get.
The front door. M's new door knocker and her old UNWELCOME snake wreath she made 3 years ago.
