As we're nearing the end of February I thought I'd check in with a review of how I did this past month.
I started off great but lost some steam near mid-month. I managed to get a photo almost every day (had to take the photo from the 19th later since I missed the actual day) but I just didn't feel like I was doing as good a job at keeping up or making the photo a day a priority. I'm caught up with my Shuttercal calendar now and back on track. Ready to tackle March. How are my fellow Project Life/365 participants doing?
Here's a few favorite photos from the last half of February:
I call this the sugar-induced crazy face after the pre-school Valentine's party. The meltdown followed closely thereafter. I like that the photo captured some of the spoils from his party as well.
Counting change with Daddy and putting it into rolls to take to the bank is a favorite activity of all the kids, however, Ethan was the lucky one tonight and was assigned the task of stacking pennies. I like that this photo fell so close to President's Day. A happy coincidence. :)
If you read my blog regularly you've seen this photo scrapped (already!) HERE. I added some fun actions for the Pioneer Woman to the photo on the layout. Kept it simple for the Project 365 album. What I love: those cute faces and big smiles!
Chopping scallions and cilantro for supper one night. I use both of these ingredients often. What I like: a very good representation of every life for me.
I finally remembered to take a photo of the beautiful roses Chad sent me for Valentine's Day. They were gorgeous (and Payton got her own roses too!). I am lucky. What I love: the pops of color against the green foilage thanks to photo actions from Maggie Holmes.
Ethan's Cars cars. These have been a staple play toy for him. He loves the movies and his collection of vehicles. What I like: this is my everyday life. I find these everywhere during the course of a week.
I thought it was so cute tonight as I cleaned up the kitchen when I found Buzz Lightyear among Brenden's Geography homework (courtesy of Ethan). "To infinity and beyond!" What I like: the snippet of another everyday life activity: homework.
More food. Our good friends, Stevie & Cindy, invited us over for Pho one day for lunch. Yummy. She makes a bunch and it feeds a ton of people. What I like: even though this photo is of the food, it evokes good memories and celebrates friendships.
This was the sky yesterday as I was driving the kids home after school. The kids even commented on how cool looking the sky was. I ran in the house when we got home and grabbed the camera to capture several shots. What I like: It was so overcast and cloudy but every once in awhile there would be a break in the clouds and a peek at the beautiful blue sky.
Getting ready to place my photo order at Scrapbook Pictures tomorrow so that I can fill in all of February in my album!
Have a super weekend!
