Project 366: Week {almost the last of the year…}

Honestly guys, I don’t know what we did this week. I mean, I know that’s a cliche and all, but I truly have NO IDEA where all the time went. I can’t remember doing much out of the ordinary. We did regular school work, and regular ballet and religious ed. But, really… No idea…. Oh well, at least I have pictures that show random moments of the days during the week ūüôā

1 – Katherine. We did our St Lucia Feast Day celebration: dress up and sweet bread… two days early (this, maybe, should have been my hint that *something* was off for the week)
2 –¬†We received this in the mail. Apparently Katherine, all by herself, signed up for a magazine subscription, and they were needing to collect payment for it…
What am I going to do once she figures out credit cards???? Hope she’s not smart enough to get passed the computer password I guess.
3 –¬†Baby Boy turned 9 months!!! ??? !!!
4 – We DID manage to put up lights around the house.
5 –¬†Both Z and Nicki have had some yucky colds. Not what I would call super “bad”, but… so. much. snot…. EVERYWHERE.
6 – One of my birthday presents from Katherine. Artificial poinsettias, that she picked out special on their shopping trip.
I don’t do much crafting with flowers, but, she was SO happy and excited to give this. I was literally crying because of the joy she had.
Side note: Now that I think of it, I do actually have a wreath that I could use these on. Maybe make a nice special Christmas/Winter wreath.
7 РMy Birthday!!! We got our Christmas Tree (not these pictured, but these were just so cute with their red bows and snow). Also, it snowed, then rained, and I stayed curled up on the couch as much as possible just reading a book.

Project 366: Week ??

As promised… Our week in photos.

This could technically still be considered part of the 366 project, but I haven’t posted in a very long time. Although for the most part I’ve only missed a few days here and there.

(From the top down)

1 – Katherine. She was so happy that her hair was just the teensy tiniest bit wavy after leaving it in a bun all night.
2 – One of Z.’s current made up games.
3 – {bonus photo, since I forgot one this week} St Nicholas’s Eve. I think we have officially run out of room on our fire place.
4 – Another one of Z’s current favorites. This particular time he was joined by Nicki, who was having the grandest time (until he spotted me, then it was all over). Seriously, he’s been super clingy recently.
5 – One of the kids on a whim asked if we could make mint tea. So one google search later and I decided we could try it. It turned out well enough (tea isn’t my favorite), but the best thing is, it was WARM and didn’t turn my stomach like multiple cups of coffee will do. I’m thinking I may keep doing this, as we still have a good bit of mint in our fridge from the summer.
6 – First successful time to carry him on my back. He did good for a while, then got tired of it. (Side question: can anyone tell me if his positioning looks good? He’s the first one I’ve carried this way)
7 – Like I said folks, it’s been much chillier this past week. Frozen leaves in a puddle.

Project 366: Week 38 {262-268}

Hello again 366-ers. According to my posts it’s been eight whole weeks since I last joined this fun linky.¬†I was working my way through this and was thinking how fun it was, and how much I miss just going back through the week and picking photos to share.

Moving forward…

Week 38 18 September to 24 September {262-268}

262 ~ She absolutely LOVES holding him.
263 ~ {Skipped, totally accidentally of course}
264 ~¬†They didn’t exactly say anything, but I think they were kinda wanting to join the ballet class too.
265 ~¬†Playing at “getting stuck under the bed”, during which time Baby N can actually move about and Miss K really does get stuck.
266 ~ Learning to read. We’ve been off and on starting and stopping the past month or so, but we got on a bit of a roll this past week and he seems to be picking things up quickly. (He managed to figure out quite a bit on his own before I even attempted formal teaching, so with a little direction he’s getting the hang of things quickly.)
267 ~ This is Z. He started reading books like this a few days ago.
268 ~ We had our yearly epic double birthday party for John. and Miss K. J’s birthday was yesterday (Hello 6!) and Kat’s is next week (*gulp* 7…).

Project 366: Week 30 {206-212}

Week 30 24 July through 30 July {206-212}

206 ~ Shoes I wore to Mass. Katherine found them and begged me to wear them. I bought them years ago for a cousin’s wedding, but haven’t worn them since (I prefer plainer shoes).
207 ~ Pretty Boy
208 ~ Time stamp on this was 07:21 (after they’d been out for a while and I came to see what they had built)
209 ~ Got to visit with Jared’s brother. We found a playground and the kids played as much as they could in the time we were there.
210 ~ Can’t nap unless all the Lego guys are just so
211 ~ A bookshelf built by my brother, for a customer for my dad’s company.
212 ~ Last minute photo for the day. Boy’s getting big, must get that other crib set up pronto….

Project 366: Week 28, 29 {192-205}

Week 28 10 July through 16 July {192-198}

192 – Praying before Mass

193 – She has been wanting to give me breakfast (in bed) since Mother’s Day. (She also wanted to do it for Father’s Day…) But each day she woke up and said “oops, I got up too late”. So on this morning she came in while I was sitting on the couch with breakfast. She totally has the whole “presentation” thing down, but she didn’t learn it from me.

194 –¬†Don’t know what’s up with the moths lately. But we’ve had quite a few this summer. But, come to think of it, I haven’t noticed quite so many this past week (this photo was from two weeks ago), so maybe the heat has something to do with them leaving?

195 –¬†First corn-on-th-cob of the season.

196 –¬†Yeah, so one afternoon the kids decided to play “Orcs” in the mud. I think it had rained earlier in the day so mud was abounding.

197 –¬†Drive-through date nights. Alternate caption: Going on dates with a 4 month old.

198 –¬†Nicholas.

Week 29 17 July through 23 July {199-205}

199 – Brothers just playing

200 – We “inherited” these old books from my father-in-law which we keep on the mantle (out of reach of little fingers). Well, Kat took a relatively long nap this day and so was up way after the other kiddos had gone to bed and she asked to see them. She enjoyed looking through them. Pretty sure she couldn’t wrap her mind around the fact that they over two hundred years old. {She kept asking if they were older than me}

201 (and bonus) – Zachary’s first time painting. Not sure he was too impressed with how it tasted.

202 – If the squirrels ever stop eating our grapes we will have a nice little crop in a few weeks. That would be great because I didn’t harvest and last year (or borrow from my dad’s and brother’s unused harvest), so our homemade grape jelly supply has long since run out and I’d love a resupply.

203 – He fell asleep this way. I just…. *sigh*…. ūüôā

204 – Papa bought water guns. The kids had a blast from what I heard. (It was their evening to spend with them, so I wasn’t actually there.)

205 – Breakfast at Grandma’s. Doughboys, berries from the farmers market and cheese, all topped with powdered sugar. {If you’re keeping track: yes, the kids are at my parents Friday night, we go home, and we’re back there first thing Saturday morning for breakfast… not sure how that’s happened, but such is the way of things at the moment.}


Guys!!!!! I finished TWO WEEKS worth and it’s Saturday AFTERNOON!!!!! I feel… accomplished? Well, anyways they’re done for this week. Catch you all next weekend!

Real camera photos this week: 5 (between both weeks)
