My 365 Project | Week 3
Here is a glimpse into my life for week 3 of my 365 Project:
Day 15: Weekend at Grandmas. The kids and my husband are having a little getaway at Grandma's this weekend and I find myself blissfully alone, in complete and total control of the remote. I had a picture in my mind of taking a photo of the kids with their backpacks on, but they would have no part of it, so I did an impromptu shoot on the stairs, haha! Bags are packed with all the comforts of home: just add some love from Grandma and the trip is complete.
Day 16: A Sunday Tradition. Sunday afternoon = Ramen noodles, a cold can of Dr. P and, of course, football. I don't know why Ramen is involved in this little tradition - it all started with my parents when I was a kid and it just feels like home. Some people have pot roast on Sunday. I have Ramen.
Day 17: It's OK Honey. Katie was playing in her room and had quite the elaborate set-up. Baby started to 'cry' and I got this sweet little moment. Look at the concern on her face, it's so cute!
Day 18: Checkmate? He loves to play games and I'm sure I'll have many more photos of him playing this year. He was moving, so the focus is all crazy, but I love the picture. He really does know how to play chess, although he doesn't have the patience to complete a game yet, but it's really amazing to watch him play against his big sis. Oh, and this is my first cheater photo - so much for taking a good picture everyday, haha! I took this one yesterday. We were trying to get a good mid-air photo today and none of them turned out the way we wanted and then it was too dark. I'll try again tomorrow.
Day 19: Something Pretty. Well, no luck on getting a fun picture today. I took the kids to drop Andrew off at preschool and it was sunny when we went in, and 10 minutes later, it was an all out blizzard. So weird. So that killed the sunlight and outside ideas I had and now you get a photo of my desk. I know, it's SO exciting! The illusion of organization. The one clean part of my desk at the moment. The bookmark charm caught my eye and it IS important to make those catalogs look pretty, isn't it? I think so.
Day 20: I'll Have S'more. Ok, is it weird when your s'mores come in a mug and watch you? I'm thinking it is. Another cheater photo - I took this a couple days ago as I was putting the last of the Christmas ornaments away, and this little guy in a mug struck me funny, so I had to take a picture - you know how it goes :)
Day 21: Hey, It's Tow-Mater! This is it! Finally! Andrew and I set this poor guy up about 20 times until we got just the right shot. I've been trying to get this to work for the mid-air theme all week and today it all came together. The light wasn't quite as bright as I would have liked to get a faster shutter, but you gotta work with what you got, right? Mater's face makes me laugh - he's just the cutest.
