Week 4/52 Layout

Here is my next LO - hard to believe that January only has 3 days left! (images are linked to gallery)

Photos 25-28:

I figure it's been a few days - time to update you with some more pics! We've been busy around here getting ready for FLORIDA!!

I've decided I sometimes just need a little bit of help choosing a photo of the day - I have it narrowed down to 2-3, now it's your turn ;) Which photos should I use?

Day 25:
Pic 1: Our toyroom after having the Daniels' over for a lunch date! But hey - at least the rest of my house looked clean!!
Pic 2: Kaylee, Trevor and I playing Bingo - its almost a daily occurance - either Colors & Shapes Bingo or the Alphabet Bingo - and both kids do a great job of being the caller - it amazes me how much Kaylee knows!!

Day 26:
Pic 1: Kaylee loves her chocolate pudding! Know that's a face only a mom could love :)
Pic 2: Tom & Trevor love to rough house together!
Pic 3: Our computer hooked up to our TV - a great way to catch up on Grey's!

Day 27: The kids are such great helpers when it comes to packing for Florida! Who needs clothes - when we have these two?!?

Day 28: Trevor FINALLY got his class picture from pre-school today! He's having fun looking at it and telling me all about the other kids in his class! He also got his 1st ever report card! What a big day!

Photos 22-24:

Ok, here goes another week!! Do you think I should keep adding photos to this post, or create a new post everytime I add photos? Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Not sure what is easier to follow! :) Anyways, here are my pics!

Day 22: YEAH! Grandma Hoppe came for a quick visit! Grandma Hoppe came today to spend one night with us! Tom & I got another night out (I could get used to this....too bad there's not a whole lot to do around here....LOL!) We went out to eat and then went ice skating & played cards out at Tom's parent's. Grandma Hoppe watched the kids (& made a mess out of the toy room!! LOL) ...oops...major red eyes! :S

Day 23: Happy Birthday Peyton! Today is Peyton's 3rd birthday so we went to his house for his birthday party! This kid has been obsessed with Santa for over a year now and he wanted a "Ho Ho" Party - and his mom gave him one! (Check out his cute little Santa outfit he wore!) Good thing his birthday is so close to Christmas!

Day 24: Kaylee & Trevor LOVE Uncle John!! They're always so excited when he comes "home" for the weekend! I still have to decide on which photo to use (I'm doing my best at only choosing ONE per day....but its hard sometimes!) The 1st photo is UJ reading books to the kids on the couch & the second is UJ and the kids making a snowman in the sticky sticky snow we got today!

P365: Photos 15-21

Ok - HELP please - I'm struggling choosing just one (maybe 2) photos a day! It's hard when we go somewhere special or do something different to just narrow down the photos! Please comment and let me know which photos you think I should use! THANKS!!

Day 15: We headed to Paula & Aaron's today to spend the weekend with them! We're very excited! We left after Tom got off of work and ate some sandwiches in the car on the way! When we arrived the kids got a special treat of freezee's for their bedtime snacks! (have a photo of this - but not uploaded yet).

Day 16: Aaron had to work this morning, but the rest of us spent some good time outside enjoying the beautiful winter weather!! The first photo captures Tom narrowly blocking a big snowball thrown by Trevor! Nice shot Trev! The second photo shows Trevor, Kaylee & Paula playing "King of the Hill". The 3rd photo is of Kaylee making her snow angel. We then went tubing after Mass Saturday night - but we also went tubing on Sunday so I wanted a different picture - but I had to include it cuz it's pretty cute!

Day 17: We started the day with shaped pancakes made by Tom & Aaron - of course they got the "Mickey Mouse" pancakes in anticipation of our upcoming trip to Florida!! (photos 1 and 2) We then went tubing again at the hill at the fairgrounds. Yes, all four of us actually did go down the hill at one time!! (3rd photo). The 4th photo is Trevor's first time sliding down the hill "penguin style" - no sled! It was pretty hilarious to watch (we got some good videos too). I can't believe he was brave enough to try this! He'd then walk all the way back up all by himself! He's getting so big! The 5th photo is a good one of Tom & Kaylee - preparing to go down on the saucer - which Bug insisted on trying!!

Day 18: So this is supposed to be about showing a typical day right - realistic as it may be? Well I took a few photos at Kaylee's check-up today - and she was in FINE 2-YO DRAMA QUEEN form! So I thought this photo showed it off (and showed off the shirt she was wearing - maybe she's getting a complex and shouldnt wear that shirt anymore....LOL) I had other ones where she actually looks cute - but thought this described our day better - she threw at least 5 different temper tantrums today! Grrr!
We also had the Brady's over for supper! We really should get back into the habit of hanging out with them more often - it feels like forever since we've gotten to do something with them!

Day 19: Today was another busy day (what a week we're having!) We dropped Trevor off at school, then Kaylee and I went grocery shopping, and then to playgroup at McDonald's. Here is a pic of Kaylee with Peyton eating snack. We then picked up Trevor and had a lunch-date with some new friends from Trevor's school! It was fun!

Day 20: Busy busy again! Today we dropped Trevor off, went to Mass & then to a Mom's group at our church - it was fun to go again - I hadn't gone in MONTHS! Another exciting thing was a fun package the kids got in the mail - some hand-made felted slippers! How fun are these!?!? Vickey did an awesome job making them - unfortunately Kaylee's are a bit too small on her - she says they squish her feet - so she had fun using them as puppets instead!! Vickey - is there anyway to stretch them a bit? They are soooooo cute!

Day 21: A fairly typical Thursday - Trent & Ann took the kids out to eat at High View & Tom and I got to have a night to ourselves! :) Of course we went to Wal-mart - not sure why but we usually end up there if we don't have the kids! LOL! Then we enjoyed a winter walk - it was a bit windy - but if felt good to get some exercise. Here we are out in the cool air - gotta love self-portraits!!

P365: Photos 8-14

Ok, so here goes another week! Here are the photos I have so far!

Day 8: Happy Friday! On Fridays we go to the Coffee Shop with Grandma Ann and then go to the library (and attend story-time - but they didn't have storytime this week - they're still off on break!). Here is Kaylee at the coffee shop looking oh so grown up! What a ham!

Day 9: Today we had to go to the Verizon store and try to get our bill figured out. While Dad & Grandpa Trent did that Mom & Grandma Ann took the kids to the mall. Of course we had to stop and let the kids play! They are so cute when they want to be!

Day 10: Kaylee wanted to go to Sunday School today during Mass - and at first Trevor didn't want to go - but once Kaylee was going - he was in! They made little crosses that said "Baptism" (to go along with the readings today) using those great foam cutouts that are pre-stickied! The kids love them!! In the photo is Kaylee, Alexa (a friend from summer ball - her dad plays on Tom & I's softball team) & Trevor

Day 11: Aahhh! There's nothing like a clean living room!! I spent a good portion of today rearranging my Living Room and cleaning up and organizing the toy room (still a lot of work needed in that room!!) But I like the way the living room looks - not quite so disastrous!!

Day 12: Trevor and Kaylee playing with the keyboard from Aunty Kassy. Just another reminder of why its nice to have a toy room - less noise in the rest of the house! ;)

Day 13: Say Cheese!! Trevor received some Happy Joe’s coupons from school for reading so many books a month - so tonight we went out for pizza for supper. The kids (& Dad)enjoyed the games!

Day 14: Today Savannah, Peyton & Amber came over for lunch after the kids got out of school. They sure did enjoy their time together - we just don’t get to see them as much anymore now that Trevor & Savannah are in school!

P365 Week One Layout

WHOO HOO! I'm almost on top of things (so far!) Here is my LO for week 1 - image are linked w/ the credits in the Ginger Scraps gallery!

P365 the 1st 7 days...

Ok - Here goes nothing! Here are my first 7 days for P365....we'll see how long I can keep this up ;)

Day 1: (2 photos - I couldn't choose just one!! LOL) Happy New Year's! We spent New Year's Day with Paula and Aaron. After the kids went to bed we had a good time hanging out as "adults"! LOL

Day 2: The Martfeld's also came to visit us over the long weekend. Here is a photo of our adorable Godson Aiden - I think he looks like his godmother! ;) (grrrr....remind me to edit this photo before I scrap it! I dont like the red blob thing behind his ear! DISTRACTING!!)

Day 3: All 4 kids on the couch. I wanted to get a pic quick of the 4 kiddos on the couch before the Martfeld's had to leave! :( They are a fun bunch of kids - it's great to see them all get along so well! I love watching them all play together! (I also have a photo of Trevor driving the Kitty Kat for the 1st time - I just have to get it off the camera - so this day will have 2 photos as well!)

Day 4: Trevor loves to play Wii! Today he was playing Wii Sports and was doing one of the bowling training games. I took this photo after he got a strike (I tell ya, he's a better bowler than me!). And of course as soon as I took this photo - he bowled a second strike - but he didn't think he needed any more photos!

Day 5: We had a slumber party with Alexandra last night - her mom had to go in for a check-up (the potential of her new baby brother or sister coming was EXCITING!) All three kids slept in the same room and slept GREAT! Here they are in the morning in our bed watching cartoons while I got ready. We can't wait to have another slumber party (and hopefully to meet the new baby sometime soon!)

Day 6: Cute 'little' Kaylee Bug! Here she is in her matching outfit for her doll - made by Grandma! Aren't they cute?

Day 7: Today Kaylee and I went to M&M's playgroup while Trevor was at Pre-school. After we picked Trevor up from school we met a bunch of the other mom's and kids from playgroup at McDonald's for lunch! It was chaotic but the kids all had a great time! Here is a photo of Trevor & Sienna eating lunch together - they get along so nice! Aren't they cute?
(WHOO HOO got my pics off my cell phone - didn't turn out too bad considering!)

I also want to thank Miss Erin for the use of her fun template for showing off my P365 photos! Isn't it cute!?!
