Day 8, sort of

day 8 | 1.8.2013 | favorites

I did not take a photo today that I wanted to use for this project. Since this is my 365 project, I get to devise the rules, right? I am going back to 2012 for day 8. This will be something I will be doing throughout this project, which takes some pressure off taking a picture every day. It also allows me to catch up.

These are some of my favorites from 2012.

(The stuff on his forehead is "glue" to help close a cut he had from a fall. The brown stuff is paint.)




My goodness, C looks like a total almost pre-teen to me in this picture.

Day 5

This morning P and I had the please eat standoff. Lord help me, this is pretty much a daily occurrence. Good thing is, he usually does eat. And if this is one of my biggest worries on a daily basis, I'll gladly take it.

Day 4

Comfy, Zoe?

I really enjoy having her around. She's so sweet and smart. She's like a big kid and loves the boys. Of course, the boys love her. I have to say that Zoe is a bit of a mama's girl, and I don't mind at all.


Day 3 - January 3, 2013

Today was a lazy day at home for us. I went upstairs to hang out with the boys and witnessed a battle of epic proportions between modern day animals and dinosaurs. Of course, no battle of this magnitude would be complete without all sorts of spit-producing, fighting sound effects. The photo does not convey the sound effects but trust me, I felt them. It was an intense scene. 

I love the way they play. It's so fun and innocent. There is no lack of imagination, including made-up rules, make-believe worlds and a variety of scenarios. The best part is hearing, "Mommy, watch this!" countless times.

2013 and 365

It's been a long time since I have posted to my blog, way longer than I would like. As I was looking back through old posts and catching up on organizing pictures (which I'm way behind on also), I am so thankful for the pictures and words and how they have captured memories that are absolutely precious to me. Memories that I hope my boys will also cherish.

In 2013, I will focus on taking pictures of people and things that are beautiful to me and let go of taking technically good photos. As a motivator, my goal for this year is to participate in my own 365 project. 

And here we go.

Day 1 - January 1, 2013
Sometimes they read with their lights after we say goodnight and are super about watching the clock and turning them off at an agreed upon time.

365: day 1 - Sometimes they read with their lights after we say goodnight and are super about watching the clock and turning them of at an agreed upon time.

Day 2 - January 2, 2013
I cheated a bit here. These are actually photos from yesterday. I loved them too much not to use them. They show love and personality. 

Nana and Papa came to visit yesterday. C is giving Nana a thank you hug for his Christmas gift. P is playing with his connectagons gift, which he says is "awesome." Thank you Nana and Papa!


Happy 2013! May the new year be full of blessings and much joy.
