Life This Week

Life this week (above): My mother-in-law & sister-in-law are on an Alaskan cruise. They saw that cool.  | I am back to work at my "old" job. Those guys have a serious addiction to their afternoon Starbucks fix. This could be dangerous.  |  We have made it through the first two weeks of school... Continue Reading →

This Week in Photos

Hubby's brother is in town with his kids. The girls have only met these cousins once. We took a family day and went to Elitch's. They had so much fun at Elitch Gardens. It was so hot! Like I was melting-hot. We cooled off by riding Shipwreck Falls and Disaster Canyon water rides. The water... Continue Reading →

Reading to Kindergarteners

It's not easy to command the attention of a room full of Kindergarteners. It's even harder to keep their attention once you grab it. As part of her 5th grade reading class, Alexandra read "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" by Dr. Seuss to a very rowdy Kindergarten class. I know they are... Continue Reading →

Life around here

The dogs are playing tug-of-war with a sock. This is why the girls never have socks. Parker has made a tent under the dining table (in background). She has brought out every single stuffed animal she owns to camp out with her.I took Alexandra to the doctor for something completely unnecessary. She can be a... Continue Reading →

Project Life | April, last week

A summertime tradition (or must) is having popsicles on the front porch with friends. It's a cool treat after a long walk to the park in the evening. Thor (or Thorbee) was such a good walker on his Gentle Leader. I am so proud of my big boy. The saga continues...The Northern Flicker accepted his... Continue Reading →

Project Life…Week Three

It was Twin Day at school (Spirit Week). The whole 5th grade dressed as nerds. She's working on her Rhode Island state project wearing the glasses. Alex's Science Fair display. Foothills Community Church hosted a Father/Daughter dinner and dance. The girls (and Daddy) got dressed up and had a great night! They went with our... Continue Reading →

I {heart} snow days?

It was a snow day yesterday. The first snow day of the school year. I was all excited until 10 a.m. when the fighting started. Fighting. Over. Markers. {sigh.} And, the forecast had everyone scared we were going to get 14" of snow that the school districts cancelled school before even one snowflake hit the... Continue Reading →

How to ride a pony.

Remember that Seinfeld episode where the gang is making fun of people who own ponies? Yeah, that was the first thing that popped into mind when a friend asked if we'd like to ride a pony. The kids, not me. Turns out it wasn't her pony. We went to a ranch-in-the-city that rents ponies. Got... Continue Reading →

How do you use Instagram?

I take pictures with my phone or iPad and post them to Instagram, but I am not sure why...Yikes. Don't hate me. Don't get me wrong. I like technology. I argue with hubby that Instagraming/twittering/blogging/texting will help keep me in touch with young technology. In other words, it will keep me from turning into an... Continue Reading →

Thank Goodness it’s Spring Break Time!

Tomorrow is the start of Spring Break...thank goodness. I am so looking forward to sleeping in everyday, not having to wake up early to get the girls off to school, no making school lunches, and no after-school activities! Parker and her friend participated in the school talent show on Thursday night, but there was a... Continue Reading →

Me and my big mouth…

Charlie the Betta had a little accident that led to his untimely death. It wasn't my fault, even though I was the person to clean the tank the day before. Alex even absolved me of all fault, but she still wanted me to replace it. We were looking at the Bettas at Petco when it... Continue Reading →

Project Life | It’s Monday

Drag myself out of bed. Wake the girls up. They need breakfast. TCAPs start today. Good news is there should be very little (if any) homework this week. Drive to Target to pick up hubby's prescriptions. Pharmacy doesn't open til 9am. Drive back home. Vacuum carpet. Sweep floor. Swiffer floor. Empty dishwasher. Move dirty dishes... Continue Reading →

Project Life | Feb. Week 4

Snow day? No such luck kids. The snow came on Sunday. We have a snow blower but my neighbor beat me to the snow! He is so nice (and I think he really likes to use his snow blower.) Love the sucker in her mouth! We're not really into matching clothes around here... Snow boots... Continue Reading →

Project Life | Week Four

Finally! It's snowing. I have the flu but I couldn't resist take a few quick shots of the snow on the way to drop the kids off at school this morning. Would you say that is dedication or an illness? Parker got a tattoo this week. Yep! It's a full tattoo on her back. Thankfully... Continue Reading →

Simple Things Sunday

Just got back from getting acupuncture for my sinus issues. I was out for the count all day yesterday with a sinus headache that felt more like someone stabbing me in the temple. About 17-18 needles later and I am a world better. Seriously, acupuncture is a huge blessing in my life. I only wish... Continue Reading →

Project Life | Week 3

Alex has decided as of mid-March she will hang up her competitive skates. She doesn't want to compete or test anymore. She has been skating since she was 4-years-old. For 7 years she has eat/breathed/slept ice skating. She'll still skate...but just for fun. She is ready to move on to gymnastics. Ready to explore her... Continue Reading →

Everyday Life.

I always said I would never start a blog post off with, "Nothing much has been going on here."  Mostly because that is never really true. There is always lots of stuff going on. What I should say is, "There is too much going on, but not much I want to blog about." It's just... Continue Reading →

Project Life | 2013

Also, my dear friend became a grandma for the second time. Yikes, girl! You're too young to be a grandma.  Wishing mom, baby, daddy and 'lil sis (and grandma) all the joy a new baby brings. Babies are good.

project life: 365 days of photos

I finally finished my Project Life: 365 days of photos, 2010! It's taken me 4 months. Originally the book had 38 pages. Well, I had to order 7 books total as Christmas gifts...that almost broke the bank, so, I had to condense the book to 26 pages. It's an 8x8 sized book and I used... Continue Reading →
