day 48 - that name again is mr plow

Tuesday, 28 February 2012

Nothing gets two lazy little monkeys out of bed like the words "Hey! Is that the snow plow I hear?"

God bless the front end loader that goes down our street at 7 am sharp on snowy mornings. If only he could do it 12 months of the year.

day 47 - ta daaaaaaaa.....

This is possibly the worst photo I've ever taken, but here's a shot of this week's project.

Two cans of Crimson Red interior latex paint and four big ass sheets of foam core later, I give you - a five foot high foam core telephone booth for the superheros to use for changing into their capes.

My kids don't understand the concept of the radio and why I can't repeat a song that just played. They definitely aren't going to know what a telephone booth is.

day 46 - discount chocolate always tastes better

Last year's birthday party was fueled by Sour Patch Kids. This year's party is fueled by Ferraro Roche.

I had to go to Michaels to get some party supplies and discovered they had their Valentine chocolate on sale. By the time I had eaten five it seemed wrong to leave the other three in the packaging all alone.

Does discounted chocolate have less calories?

day 45 - you look like a monkey and you smell like one too

Monday, 27 February 2012

Four years ago I was told to go to the hospital and tell the doctor on call to deliver the twins right away. Five hours later the boys were born three weeks early.

Best Valentine's Day gift ever.

Day 45

Happy birthday my little monkeys. Here's hoping this is the year the terrible twos come to an end.

day 44 - i heart you pinterest

Sunday, 26 February 2012

Okay, time to catch up. I'm going to start somewhere totally random and fill in as I go. It's time to catch up.

Today we made Ava's Valentines. I love you Pinterest. I've never been more inspired in my life.

The scratch-off tickets were unbelievably easy. A little bit of dish soap and some metallic acrylic paint from the dollar store and we were in business. A penny was taped to the back of each card.

day 50 - the justice league

Monday, 20 February 2012

Long time no post! It's been a crazy couple of weeks getting ready for the boy's fourth birthday party. The party was great and I am finally ready to get back into the posting groove.

Here's a shot from the superhero photo booth on Saturday:

Superhero Birthday Party

Have you seen this awesome freebie for Project Life? I don't post status updates very often but I had a very important one to post on Valentine's Day so the timing was perfect.

Have a wonderful Family Day everyone!

well this is unexpected

Sunday, 5 February 2012

Quick! Your house is on fire and you only have time to grab one item to take with you (aside from children and pets of course)! What is it?

My one thing would be my 1 TB external hard drive. It has every picture I have taken over the past two years, sitting perfectly organized and sorted by date.

Well tonight I was having some problems with it. I unplugged the USB cable and when I plugged it back in, the USB connector snapped off and fell inside of the totally sealed box which doesn't have any screws.

Now what?!

Please keep your fingers crossed! In the meantime I'm going to focus on staying calm and not crying and I'm going to leave you with the dividers for my new book. The dividers in my first book too no time at all and the ones in my last book took way too long.

This new layout is a happy medium:

January

February

March

April

I'd still love to hear how your Project Life is going. Are you liking it? I like it but I will be looking for something different to use for 2012. I'd love to hear your recommendations!

fabulous friday challenge

Friday, 3 February 2012

Welcome to another week! It's been a good week that started with a trip to Henrys. I wasn't entirely sure about this backdrop when I bought it, but I've been pleasantly surprised and had fun playing with it on Saturday to create my new Facebook profile picture (below).

Here's an outtake, or as I call it, their usual faces.

Fabulous Friday

Hope you had a wonderful week! Thanks for linking up. :)

Just a reminder of the rules:

1. The picture has to be taken by you.
2. The picture has been taken during the past week and it can be a picture you have posted earlier in the week.
3. Link up using the link to your individual blog post and not your main blog address.
