Moving right along

Day 48-I hate them...really

These are two of my worst enemies, and their job is to assist me in my most hated chore...enough said.

Day 49- Vitamin C

Well DD had to stay home from school today, she wasn't feeling well when she woke up but tried to get ready for school anyway. After she finished breakfast I made her go back to bed, there was no way she was going to make it. Guess it's time to start taking my vitamin C to keep me from getting sick

Day 50- The Birds
After every rain, we are invaded by black birds, it's so neat to watch them and a little scary at the same time

Day 51 goofy son to the resuce
I almost missed taking my picture today, buy luckily DS grabbed my camera for me and posed for a couple of goofy pictures. He's gotten quite used to being my last minute model

Day 52 Don't sit so close
I swear I have to repeat myself 50 time a day telling DS son not to sit so close to the TV. But I must be saying it in some foreign language, because he obviously doesn't understand me.
Well, until next time, keep those cameras snapping :)

Getting back on track

I love taking my pictures everyday, I've been keeping up too, but I really need to get them posted to this blog!!! Seems the pics are so much easier to scrap when I have the stories already written out and I can copy paste and edit. LOL So I guess I'll start over with yesterday and today and make sure to post at least every other day if not every day,

Day 46 The Alpacas

Every time we go up to my MILs we go through this little town with an Alpaca farm. I've always wanted to take a picture of them because I just think they are so neat, but never thought to take out my camera until it was too late. Well now that I'm doing project 365 as soon as we saw the signs for the town I grabbed my camera and had it all set. I was a little worried on how it would turn out, since we had cars behind us and had to keep to the speed limit. But as you see it turned out OK, I even had one looking at me as I snapped the picture.

Day 47 -A different kind of flower pot

When my SIL came back from Florida she brought my Mom this neat little plant in a snail shell. She's had it for almost 3 years now and this is as big as it's gotten. Definitely a slow grower. But then again, is is planted in a shell. Well, until tomorrow :)

Did you think I quit?

Well, I didn't just haven't posted, but I'm gonna catch up here goes

Day 15
DH was off from work and whenever this happens the first thing my DS does when he wakes up is to sit on Daddy's lap and check over all the "important" happenings around the net. They were goofing off looking at each other then at the computer and then laughing. The things that amuse these my family.

Day 16
See I do share my computer!

Day 17
I went to my BFs birthday party she is the first one of our group to turn 30 this year. And this was the awesome cake her sons, friends mom...I think I got that right made for her

Day 18

Teaching DD to throw a punch. I don't know how I even managed to take this picture seeing as I was laughing so hard. She's gonna need a few more practice sessions.

Day 19
We finally got what I consider real snow, it was so pretty. Bu since it snowed I fed the local outdoor cats. They weren't around when I fed them and the blue jays found the food first. This drove my cats nuts. This is Dusty Kendell and Dakota, who were all chirping at the little bird thieves

Day 20
Inauguration day, most of my day was spent with the TV on watching inauguration coverage.

Day 21
The kids are so creative....They were using two halves of a candy ornament ball as a telephone. I told you...the things that amuse my family.

Day 22
I caught Baxter sitting at the table, I guess he thinks if he sits there now, I'll serve him with everyone at dinner and he won't have to sneak food. I also love how his eyes reflected the flash. he looks like my little alien cat.

Day 23

My poor Wii fit board, one of my resolutions was to exercise more seeing as I have the Wii fit, I may as well use it. Well....not luck on that one so far. But I pulled it from under the TV finally. Maybe now that I see it I will use it. We'll see

Day 24

This is one of my favorite mugs. I love Thomas Kinkade but right now buying one of his paintings is way out of my budget. So a few years ago I saw this mug it's of Bridge of Faith. Works great for me, I love mugs, since one can never have to many, and it is so pretty. Plus I can get more coffee into this mug always a plus :) Well that's it I'm all caught up, now to scrap my LOs. Until Next time.

Day 13 and Day 14

Before I get to my pictures, I have some 365 templates I would like to show you. You know how I told you I found some templates that had room for all 7 pics and journaling on one page? Well, these are them.

These are by shop at Elemental Scraps. I just had to pick these up and with them on sale right now, the price was right :)Next up we have a 2 page template by Doodleboogs at Scrap Outside The Box
I was looking for a set that would help me make a great summery LO, but not too basic. Any this set is perfect for me, I just love the different sizes of the pictures. And I like that I get to add some journaling highlights. I'm now looking forward to the end of the month so I can use this set. And now for the pictures. Yesterday I had to do a very hard thing, I had to say goodbye to my Christmas Decorations. I to pack them up and put them up in the attic. It's so sad to take them down. And well I lots of pictures of Christmas at pretty so I took this picture of it all packed up.

Day 13

Today's picture is of one of those moments when you realize it's the little things that count.

Day 14

I had to run errands today and DS got to go with me. He's at that age where going everywhere with either Mommy or Daddy is fun. I remember when DD was that way and I also that little pain I felt the first time she asked did I have to? So now I try to let my DS go with me whenever I can take him because I know in what will seem like the blink of an eye he won't want to be bothered. And having this picture will always remind me of the moment in time where he had a blast going out with me. Well until next time.

Week 2 LO day 11 and day 12

OK so actually blogging everyday is so hard for me, don't ask me why it just is. LOL but I have managed to keep taking my pictures. Here is my week 2 LO Credits: 365 project Template No 1 by Moriginals and you can pick it up on her BLOG. papers are from my kit Chill Out Remix Edition. Tape days, acrylic 2, and stapled note book paper are from the LIFE 365 - 'Date It' set by Gina Marie Huff . January(recolored) from Project 365 - Kit AND Templates Bundled by Kristen Rice
Believe it or not this is my first two page LO. and I'm so glad i didn't plan on using just one kit or LO style. With so many great choices out there, I'm having fun trying them all. I do know most of my LOs will have to be 2 pagers because of the journaling. Although I have seen a few templates that have the all 7 pictures plus room journaling on one page, so I guess we'll see. And now on to the current pictures.

Day 11

DH playing his XBox 360, something he does often now that he has one. He had wanted one for a while now, well since they came out, but we never had the money. So that was why I worked at the game stand over Christmas. And all those late night paid off when I saw his reaction on Christmas morning. And his attitude about me on the computer has been better lately too :)

Day 12

This is Baxter, he is one of the little....well not so little anymore kittens we rescued from outside. I can not tell you how amused I was when I got this shot. I just wanted one of him looking out side, but this one is so much better. You will probable see more pictures of my furry children since they are making it a habit to get into lost of trouble lately.. Oh and in case you are in the mood for just a regular template, I have this one over on my other Blog, but be prepared, it a long post:) Until next time.

Day 6, Day 7 and a little gift

Nope didn't miss a day of picture taking, just a day of blogging. I took yesterdays picture late last night and I still had to post to my other blog, so today you get two pictures. This one is just me playing around with the different settings on my camera and well I liked the way it turned out.

This next one is just so special to well my stomach. You'd be surprised that one of my resolutions is to lose weight. but today we shipped out everything from the stand I worked at during Christmas. It was so nice to see it go away :) But as a treat, DH and I stopped at Olive Garden, and I got their yummy Black Tie Mousse cake to go

It was so good too, the last time I had a piece of this cake was five years ago, so now I'm good for another five. And now a little gift from me

I was getting ideas for my next weeks LO and this is one of the templates I came up with and would like to share it with all of you :) You can download it HERE, hope you like it. Until next time :)

Day 5 She's back to school

OK I'll say it, I really thing that kids get more time off from school these days then I did. But I know most people say this about the kids "today" compared to them. Anyway, DD did go back to school today after her week and a half Christmas break. And I took this picture of her on her way to the bus.I am actually surprised I was able to get a good picture of her. She has now decided to just smile in a picture is out of the question. However any other facial expression is fine. I have to remind her these pictures WILL be scrapped and posted online and, there is a slight chance one of her friends just might happen to see them. Today it did the trick and she smiled, I took the picture and she was off. Until tomorrow :)

Day 3

Let's start with a story today shall we? I have 2 children and my DS is the younger of the 2 he is 4 soon to be 5 and he is well kind of a bully to his 8 yo sister. She is afraid of hurting him and won't hit back, she feels bad when he gets yelled at and coddles him, and so he won't get in trouble she does things for him. Don't ask me why she does because I can't seem to get it. But lately he has been breaking or ruining things that belong to her. So I made a deal with him this morning, every time he broke something of hers, I would take one of his toys. He told me he didn't want me to take any of his toys. So I told he not to break anything of hers. He agreed and everything was fine...that was until she was reading her book. He wanted her to read a page she had finished. She told him she read that page already and flipped to the next, well he didn't like that and turned the page back and insisted she read the page he wanted her to. She didn't give in and turned the page back again and held it down. He yelled moved her hand and went to turn the page and instead ripped it. Well as soon as I heard it rip I told him to get me one of his toys. He refused, so I got up and took one of his toy trains(not the new one). This started the tantrum of all tantrums which I was happy to ignore, but not before I snapped today's picture :) So here you have it

Day 2

So right now as I write it is snowing here, we probably won't get much, but I love snow and I'll take it! Because it is snowing I grabbed my camera and just started clicking away and this one here is my favorite. small side note this little pumpkin is sitting on top of a hay bail. We had the hay bail with our fall decorations and after the first heavy rain grass started to grow out of it. I just loved the way the pumpkin caught the first snow of the new year. So there you have it my day two picture. Until next time :)

So James now has a nice home with us. Oh a might I add James makes noise. Oh yes push a button and he toots. Such fun! Well that's all from me for today, I'm off to see what the other ladies have taken pictures of today.
