Project Life: Week 11

Week 11: March 14th - March 20th
March 14: Animal crackers have always been one of Ty's favorite snacks. Still till this day, he munches on them & it reminds me of when he was a little guy just starting out eating solids! March 15- I had Ty practice writing his name today. He does a very good job at attempting to write it, doesn't quite spell it all out, rather he spells his name, "T-i-T-i". March 16- Another little cute project brought home from school. I LOVE it when he brings home art. I either take a picture of it and put it in his school album, or I hang it on his art wall in our den area. March 17- Happy St. Patrick's Day. Luckily, my little green monsters didn't get pinched today.. they were good sports and all wore green! March 18- We cleaned up my parents 1960 Thunderbird and got it ready to be sold. It was owned by my Grandmother. Such a gorgeous car. March 19- Uncle Jay giving Veyah lots of kisses. This is the first picture he's gotten with her since the day she was born. I've made it a priority to get more photographs with family members & the kids. March 20- Creative play. Something Prez has been doing a lot lately. This morning, he was changing his "tetty bare's" diaper. He then set him up at the dining room table with a blanket, a spoon, paper cup and a jar of baby food. After he was full, he put "tetty bare" down for a nap. We all had to be quiet because he was "seeeping" (sleeping)

Project Life: Week 10

Week 10: March 7 - March 13

March 7-Mommy and Ty Ty. How quickly our little baby is growing up. Looking back over our pictures in the past year, I haven't really been in a lot of them.. so it's time to change that. Mommy's on strike! More time spent in front of the lens, rather than behind it!March 8-While out shopping, I found this cute framed glass calender. Perfect for my scrapbook room & another piece for the organization stash.March 9-These are my favorite kinds of pictures. Nothing staged, or rehearsed. Just pure & natural. These boys have a indescribable relationship. Together, they make the best team.March 10-Silly boy is always finding ways to get Mommy's attention. How could I say no to a face like that?! A face only a Mommy can love.March 11-One of my current favorite pictures. Not only do I love the little one in it, but I love how her little brother is reaching his arm up to touch her. simply priceless.
March 12-One of the many activities the boys enjoy during the Spring/Summer time is drawing with chalk. The sun paid a visit today, so they boys doodled all over the back patio. Ty, being the silly boy he is, added in some crazy faces for the picture of the day!
March 13-I finally finished Neveyah's nursery. It took me forever to find bedding that I like and that coordinated with each other. I really wanted to paint her walls, but since the landlord doesn't allow that, I had to compromise. I picked up these wall vinyl dots and love the way they look, they match perfectly.

On a side note, we entered Neveyah in the Baby Idol contest. If you'd like to vote for her, go here. You'll need to sign up for an account, which takes less than a minute, but after that you can vote for her, here. Each person is allowed up to 10 votes per day, for 5 days, which on Friday, March 19th, round 1 will end. The top 500 babies with the most votes will advance to the 2nd round.

Thank you in advance to all those who vote! :D Have a great week!

"I Do" Layout

After much procrastination (4 1/2 years to be exact), I finally scrapped some of the pictures from my wedding day. Sadly, I don't have much pictures from that day, since it was a very small ceremony. Close friends & family only. Took me a day to get everything put together. Ya, that kind of wedding. I didn't have a big frilly dress, a 3-tier cake, (my topping was of Shrek & Fiona, lol), nor did I leave afterwards to my honeymoon. But, I wouldn't trade that day for anything. It was the day I committed to myself to the best man in the world. My best friend. I usually list the products I use and the manufactures, but honestly, I don't remember. I was floating on Cloud 9 when I made this. Creating this layout took me back to that day when I said, "I Do"

Project Life: Week 9

Week 9: February 28 - March 6
February 28- Cold season hitting hard. The kids and I have been sick for what seems like forever. Ty had an ear infection in both ears, myself.. dealing with the endless cough. Seems like ever since Ty started school, we get sick very often!March 1- With every kiddo of ours, I've always taken a picture of their itty bitty feet around a month old or so. Just wish they could stay little like this forever!March 2- I've been wanting to put this outfit on Veyah, and although it's still a little to big, it fits enough to wear it. I just love the little Ugg boots! Everything is so cute when it's "itty bitty" size.March 3- Our little stinker. Mr. Mischievous. Prez sure knows how to push a Mama's buttons. At times I think of how much he'd go for on Ebay, but at the end of the day, I look at him and all I can do is laugh-- pure payback for all the troubles I gave my parents.March 4- One thing I enjoy buying for the boys is SHOES. But, with boys being boys, it's not like they don't "break em' in", so having a wide variety of shoes is always a good thing, especially since they don't last very long!March 5- Veyah's looks are changing so much. She's our little chunk-uh-munk. This girl loves to put down some food! Awesome appetite. Any chance I get, I'm snapping pictures of her. I consider myself her personal paparazzi!March 6- I've been working on Veyah's room this past month, and her dresser was finally completed. I've been wanting to do a picture with her sitting in the drawer, since I had one taken of me when I was little. She was a good sport! Always is.
