It's not to early to be thinking about Christmas, is it?

My dad replaced a section their fence recently, so I had him save me some of the old boards.
Last week I made a few blank canvases with the wood, so I could paint a few signs.
Here is one I just hand painted.

I saw something similar on Pinterest a few weeks ago.
If you're interested, and want instructions to make your own, you can find info here.

Treats For Their Lunchbox

Yesterday was Back to School for us.
Although the girls were excited to go, I was a little sad to send them back.
We had such a fantastic summer together!
I already miss 'em hanging out with me...

Now, as I try to get back in the swing of things, besides making my hubby's lunch, 
I have theirs to make again too.
Since everyone in my family is big on homemade treats, I try to keep them satisfied.
My mom has used this Peanut Butter Bar recipe FOREVER - one of my family's favorite.
They're pretty much a homemade version of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
 Try 'em, I know you'll love 'em
and I bet you can't, just eat one...

Peanut Butter Bars
2 cubes (1 Cup) butter (melted)
1 1/2 C peanut butter
2 packages graham crackers (crushed)
1 pound powdered sugar
1 package chocolate chips (melted)

Mix melted butter, peanut butter, graham crackers, and powdered sugar.  Flatten mixture in buttered
 9 x 13 pan.
Spread melted chocolate chips over top.  Refrigerate for 20 min.  Cut into bars.
