Project 365

Picture: Future rock 2 of Project 365....

So this year I decided to do the Project 365...take a picture everyday of the year. It's going pretty well...need to upload the pics so you can see...and it's lots of fun, too! Today's picture will be one from the impromptu photo shoot of Coop outside. It was actually {warm} today...well, warm enough we didn't need our coats! Coop was playing, riding his scooter, hiding from I'll pick a cute one. I actually got a kit that includes an album and all the sheet protectors for the year to slide in the pics (including spots for a quick journal about each photo if I wish).

I'll keep you updated...

We're all fine here, enjoying the sunshine for a change. Wishing I was in Baja with Meg....lucky girl went there for a few days! I could use some beach time, couldn't you?

Enjoy your day!

This is for Maddie, who complains that I don't update enough....:-)))
We are staying at my in-law's for a little bit. We had to turn in the keys to the realtor on Monday, and we haven't decided on a new house yet...nothing like waiting until the last minute...the house we wanted was being painted, so we hadn't actually walked around inside yet...and when we finally went in, we realized it was way too small for us. So, now back to square one! Thank goodness my in-law's are so cool and have lots of space. We took over the upstairs, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms up there. So the kiddos have their own space.
Keeping up with my project 365...a photo a day this year! But I am not on my computer, so I can't share the pics yet. In fact, not quite sure where my computer is....! But it's fun to do this project so far...taking pics of our everyday life...Kendall at her 9 month check up (she's tiny, on the 5th petite little miss), Spencer curled up on chair reading at Barnes & Noble, Cooper playing with the trains, the grandkids on the back of the trailer bound for the dump, the big moving truck at our house...tomorrow's pic will be Spencer as Student of the Month!!!! He has the assembly tomorrow and he doesn't know he's won an award, so it will be fun to catch the surprise on his face!
Anyway, that's it...for now...

this is why I love the net

So I was watching Kate & Jon a few days ago and Kate was wearing the coolest t-shirt that said Grateful Mom in swirly bright letters. I thought, that's a cool shirt! Then later this week, I went to a new blog I like and she is giving away the shirt! It comes from a cool site called promom. So keeping my fingers crossed that I win! Go check it out and check out her blog: tons of giveaways! :-)
