I'll start with latter, a project I finally finished to measure the heights to which the boys have grown, a giant wall ruler:
I picked up a 1x6 pine board and stained it to match the basement floor boards. Once dry, I marked off the inches and feet using a ruler, then drew in the numbers with a pencil:
Using a sharpie, I outlined the numbers and drew the hash marks for the inches and feet:
I filled in the numbers with black acrylic paint:
And had SPH help me nail it to the wall:
While we have no plans to move any time soon, this board could move with us if we go to another home, and we'll have a permanent reminder of the boys' growth each year!
And now that I'm done making the ruler to measure the heights, it's time for me to focus on counting the days, 6 to be exact, until Easter arrives and my Lenten Vegan Challenge is complete.
So without further adieu, my last week of vegan/flexitarian meals is here:
The Best Barbecue Veggie Burgers, Asparagus, Roasted, Parmesan Grits
Taco Lasagna with Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce
Sweet Potato Enchiladas, Cilantro-Lime Rice
Eggplant Parmesan, minus the Parm for me, Big Salad
I'm already planning my Easter menu...and there will be cheese!
Have a sweet week,
