Counting the Days, Measuring the Heights

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
Peanutty Stirfry
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,
