Project Life ~ Week Four

The Mom Creative

I had a lot of fun putting PL together this week and I love the way it turned out!

I added some layers this week and I love it! I use the Design A right now and when I added the first layer, I just cut it in half. I also used just a regular page protector for the second layer. I try and add as much about our week.

I like the way it looks and feel to have the layers "in between" the regular week.
I enjoyed adding some of our school into this week. On the half page I put a picture of each of the kids and on the journal cards I wrote about what we did.
This little SHMILY note was on the table from Brian when I woke up one morning. Before PL this paper would have ended up getting thrown away. I may have put it up but it would have been forgotten.

Pizza Party and Living Room Campout

Every Saturday evening we make homemade pizza and play games. It has become a tradition that we all look forward to.

This weekend we were needing some much needed family time so we add in a little extra to our evening. We let the kids make their own pizzas and played games. Then we headed to the living room for a movie and a camp out.

Alyssa puts more cheese in her mouth than on her pizza.
Taylor did her pizza completely by herself.

She kept sneaking pepperonis!

Sometimes messes are SO worth it!

I think we tuckered 'em out!

Project Life Tuesday ~ Week Three

The Mom Creative

Each week that goes by, I love Project Life even more. It is helping me to notice and remember the little things. Its funny because I thought I already did that.

This week is pretty self explanatory. I tried to document even the little things that happened this week. Our chickens are still laying eggs, ordering out for pizza, our snow storm and planning school out for the week. On my "extra" journal card for the week I wrote the word Eucharisteo. Check out this wonderful website if you are not familiar with the word Eucharisteo! Under that I wrote a few different things I am thankful for this week.

I'm hoping to make a stop at the craft store this week to spice things up a little! Craft stores make me giddy. :o)

Game Night

It has always been very important for Brian and I to spend a lot of time with the kids. We enjoy family read alouds, games, pizza night and have quite a few family traditions.

Tonight we enjoyed a sweet, calm  competitive, laugh of loud game of Mexican Train Dominoes. Yes, we can even make a calm game a bit on the loud side. To think, Brian used to be a quiet person. Haha!

I wouldn't have any idea where the kids get their competitiveness from!

I love these times.

Project Life Tuesday, Week Two

The Mom Creative

I just did a pretty basic layout this week. It wasn't a creative week. We were very busy with appointments.

I am just in love with the fact that no matter how busy I am, I can still complete this! Just snap a picture a day or a few here and there and.....TA DA!

I am hoping to continue to do the typical week layout plus add "a week in the life of...." to it over the next few weeks. Does that make sense?

I will probably start with daddy. Do one sheet layout of different things about him. Plus still do my original week. Maybe add tidbits about him. Where he works, what he likes to do, how he spends his time, when he gave his life to the Lord, his favorite color, etc.

For the kids I will add pictures of them waking up, going to bed, etc. Plus add  their shoe size, height, weight, favorite things, etc.

I'm kind of excited about it because in my head it will be really neat. We'll see how it actually turns out though. Ha!

First real snow of 2012


Everyone loves snow! Well everyone except Taylor. Hehe....She is not a real big fan of snow.

The other kids however LOVE IT! Its hard to keep them inside if there is snow on the ground.

Truthfully, I am ready for a few FEET of snow! I love the big snowflakes and lots of it. Unless of course, I have to drive. Its not so bad when we lived in town but out here I will pass on driving in the snow. The other day I had Brian take us to the store. He loves being my protector. :o)

Hmm.....That's kind of like jars. I know I could open most of them but why when he is here to do it, right? Men love to help their woman! So we both benefit. ;)

Ok off my rabbit trail now, back to snow! Snow makes me want to bake! Is that weird? Yesterday I made apple bread. It doesn't last long around here. I believe the pan is empty as I type. I guess I'll need to make more. Brian likes to have homemade stuff to take in his lunch. So that means it needs to snow A LOT so I can have a baking day. :o)
