Project Life- Week 4

Sunday: The girls having a tea-party during the 49er/Giants game

Monday: Self explanatory. Love that text feature in Picasa.

Wednesday: Harper came over during Caravan and  we played games, made (and ate) cookies and had a fun time in general.

Thursday: Lily had dance. When I got home Joe had made an awesome ham and scalloped potato dinner. So tasty. After dinner I found this in the living room. Hannah put her baby and the baby's dolly to bed.

Friday: Just some cute kids enjoying movie night.

Saturday: Matthew fell with a coffee cup in his hand and cracked open his head. It was bleeding, he didn't like the ice pack or the pressure but we persevered. In the end we had to bandage it because he kept rubbing it and opening it back up.

These are just a few mini shots from the week that will go into the pockets. Love that!

Time of mourning.

Now that the time of mourning has passed I feel like I can post some pictures of our evening last Sunday. 

It was the day of the 49er v Giants.

Dramatic pause. 

In case you are living under a rock, the niners lost.

There was almost a shedding of tears.
 (Ok, maybe in private there was a tear or two.)
We had some friends over, the family was all dressed up and representing.

We even had tamales. 
(In case you were wondering, they were awesome.)

Regardless of the outcome of the game we had a nice evening visiting with our friends, the girls never pass up an opportunity for a tea party and Jake was just excited that Carter came over (even if he was wearing a Vikings jersey). Joe enjoyed watching the game with someone other than me. This is what usually happens when we watch a game together....

Mary: Why do they wear such shiny pants?
Joe: ::silence::
Mary: I don't understand why all they ever do is just jump on top of each other.
Joe: They aren't just jumping on top of each other.
Mary: How much time is left on this game?
Joe: A minute and 36 seconds.
Mary: Ok. 
(25 minutes later when the game is still going)
Mary: This is why I don't understand this game, the laws of time don't even apply.
Joe: eyeroll and some kind of extremely patient answer.

Yeah, he was glad to have people that actually knew what was going on here so that he wasn't a loner or needlessly distracted by all of my ridiculous observations.

Snow Day!

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
~Bill Morgan, Jr.

So. Much. Fun.

Project Life- Week 3

Week 3. There are some different little things this week. The pictures may not be clear, they may not be composed perfectly but there is just something about them I love.

1) This one is probably going to end up getting cropped down to fit into one of the journaling spots. I love that my dad is just chilling as we wait for the big kids to get off of the log ride at the Mall of America.

2) Love that it looks like it is in motion. I love that you see us holding hands.

3) A trip into the Peep store got them these "awesome" peep hats. They loved them!

4) This one is cute with Casey and the kids but I love that you can see me and my dad having a conversation in the background.

5) Casey and Jake towards the end of the day. You can see the exhaustion in his little face. Love this sweet little moment.

6) On Monday we headed home. Of course we detoured a little so that we could stop at IKEA. We ate lunch and then proceeded to get our things and hit the road. Love IKEA meals.

7) The sunset on the way home. Yes, I pulled over.

8) We have had a little bit of trouble with the baby removing his diaper and running around naked. Unfortunately he doesn't take off his pants too. He just removes the tabs and lets it fall down one of his pant legs. He could be running commando all day and I would never know unless I find the random diaper, he pees (or poops) all over the place, I pick him up and feel it missing, or the final way to tell is when I see this...

9) I am planning on cutting these apart and putting them in the little slots. I am really enjoying that since I don't always have as much to say to fill those places. We had a snow storm on Thursday that dumped a lot of snow on us. The girls all bundled up and ready for school. Just a little shot of the start of the day.
 10) The snowman is actually going into last week. Lily made it the day we got snow and decorated it with some of her winter stuff. We had to remind her to bring in her hat this week since the snow we got on Thursday and Friday buried the snowman. We would be looking for the hat the rest of winter! The picture on the right is from our day at IKEA. They have these nifty little tray carts that I LOVE! I had the regular sized shopping cart that I had Matthew and Hannah corralled in so I didn't have the hands to carry trays. Fortunately they think of everything there. Lily and Jake did a great job pushing it carefully until we found our seats.

Project Life- Week 2

Here we go... week 2.

Sunday: I took pictures outside of the kids with my new lens. They turned out so cute. I love these little faces.

Monday: Christmas is down. Thank goodness!

Tuesday: Lily had her allergy test. All is well, just a few little sensitivities.

Wednesday: The snow... so pretty. This is the first real snow of the season.

Friday: Moms Day at the preschool. We had fun doing all things monkey. :)

Saturday: The 49er game. Hurray!!! We were in Minneapolis so we didn't watch it but we were representing anyway.

Another fun little picture from the trip. Jake was thrilled to have someone to sit and show him what to do on his game. He got lots of pointers from Uncle Johnny! :)

Project Life- Week 1

Sunday- The kids were all passed out by 5:30. Apparently when you stay up until almost midnight you get a little tired.
We went to lunch after church with some friends... Bailey and Lily (they are slightly inseparable).

We have been having ridiculously warm weather recently... the kids have been enjoying their bikes in the driveway. We have been so warm that there are people that are still golfing every day. 

Friday- I chaperoned Jacob's field trip to the Grout Museum, Imaginarium, and the Sullivan Brother's Memorial. It was so fun! I really enjoyed all of the things that we learned. I definitely want to take the kids back there.

Saturday- Joe had to go do a hospital visit in Rochester, MN so I took the kids to gymnastics in the morning. It is usually a lesson in patience to take Matthew there but he did really well. Lily was the perfect big sister and let him play with her DS.

Extra pictures from the Grout Museum. This collage is all the cool things that they had on display there. The other one is all pictures of Jake and his classmates. I have a few mini pictures for the smaller pockets as well that are not depicted here for privacy purposes.
