Photo a Day: Weeks 33 & 34

Photo a Day: Weeks 33 & 34 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

I’m finding it harder and harder to keep up with my Photo a Day posts. Time is just flying by and weeks have passed before I realize it. I think I’m going to have to set reminders for myself so I can stay on track. This series will be over before I know it!

Week 33

Photo a Day: Weeks 33 & 34 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week was our first real snow of the season, so there was staring out the window at the sight all week and a day of digging ourselves out of the house. Before the snow fell I did a grocery store run and did some couponing, which I haven’t done in awhile. It felt good to save so much money and I can’t wait for my next coupon trip! Other than that, it looks like the kids stole my phone for some goofy pics and I discovered one was eating in my bed, which explains where all the crumbs came from that I was sleeping in. Oh, and daddy made into the picture roll at some point too.

Week 34

Photo a Day: Weeks 33 & 34 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week was back to school. It was too cold to walk so I drove my son to school and there was a snow pile blocking an entire lane of traffic, and it was higher than my SUV (the pic was taken from my driver side window). Exciting during the week was my son’s 6th birthday, a new potty because it’s potty training time, and some yummy homemade chocolate peanut clusters. Funny this week was my daughter grabbing a whole chicken thigh and going to town, and her falling asleep in the middle of the kids room when they were supposed to be cleaning it.

Photo a Day: Weeks 30, 31, 32

Photo a Day: Weeks 30, 31, 32 | #photoadayforayear #photoaday

Well, the holidays definitely got in the way of updating my Photo a Day, so this time around you get three weeks worth. At least enjoying the holidays is a good excuse to be late! Who’s ready for New Year’s?!

Week 30

Photo a Day: Weeks 30, 31, 32 | #photoadayforayear #photoaday
While trying to endure the cold weather (that has only gotten colder), the kids got new winter coats. We tried to stay indoors as much as possible, but had to venture out to BJ’s where my daughter admired the holiday inflatables, and I also had a dentist’s appointment. My daughter was “working” on her LeapFrog tablet while we waited.

Week 31

Photo a Day: Weeks 30, 31, 32 | #photoadayforayear #photoaday
The week before Christmas was still all about Christmas. My son had a festive week at school where he got to dress out of his uniform each day (PJ day was his fav), and we made his class Christmas cards and goody bags. We also got to see Santa and the kids got an early present from their uncle (that racetrack is loud by the way). All of the fun Christmas activities wore the kids out, so some relaxing was had too.

Week 32

Photo a Day: Weeks 30, 31, 32 | #photoadayforayear #photoaday
Christmas week! Just look at that face of surprise and excitement on Christmas morning. We made Santa cookies to leave under the tree and after Christmas was over, it was back to good ol’ PB&J sandwiches. I had to go back to the doctor for my third attempt at an anatomy ultrasound because our little guy didn’t want to show his left hand. The ultrasound tech had to toggle between 2D and 3D ultrasound, so I lucked out and got a 3D pic of him. Then it was back to normal shenanigans, like my daughter stealing my spot in bed.

Photo a Day: Weeks 28 & 29 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

After a much needed week long break from the blog, my new Photo a Day is here. The past two weeks have been filled with family and holiday fun. Enjoy!

Week 28

Photo a Day: Weeks 28 & 29 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week there were lots of naps. My daughter likes to climb up on the side of my chair and fall asleep on my shoulder, and my son fell asleep right in the middle of the kitchen floor one afternoon, midway through his homework (must’ve been a rough day at school, haha). Aside from that the kids attended a holiday party, we did some holiday shopping where my daughter thought she was leaving with a new rocking horse (it’s too close to Santa coming for that to happen), and I snagged a pic of her looking out the school door window waiting for her brother’s bus to arrive.

Week 29

Photo a Day: Weeks 28 & 29 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week we started our holiday baking (yum, cookies!) and had some snowmen ice creams. It was snowing outside, so it was only fitting we’d eat snowmen. Our Christmas tree has been reduced to nothing but lights at this point (thanks to the littles for demolishing all the ornaments). My daughter applied crayon to her lips like lipstick, my son has become addicted to Wheel of Fortune so he had some kind of set up with his letters pretending to play it, and he’s getting better at spelling and sounding out words (hence the photo of his sentence notebook). And for you, the best part of the week is the new holiday giveaway I’m hosting on Facebook. Head over to the Making Time facebook page (@ImMakingTime) and enter to win a Fingerling + other fun stocking stuffers!

Admittedly, I almost forgot the new Photo a Day post. The holidays have been a bit hectic, but luckily, I remembered before getting too far into a new week. And can you believe it? I’ve made it halfway through the year already! Boy, has it flown by and I’m sure the other half will fly by just as fast. Enjoy!

Week 26

Photo a Day: Weeks 26 & 27 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week was busy, but we made time for some naps in between it all. My son disguised his turkey as Batman so it wouldn’t get eaten for Thanksgiving this year. My daughter (it’s pretty obvious we spend a lot of time together) was fairly well-behaved at my doctor’s appointment and the rest of the week she played around with Olaf, fell asleep with Snoopy on the way to pick up her brother from school, and had a little play time while laying on daddy’s legs.

Week 27

Photo a Day: Weeks 26 & 27 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Thanksgiving week was full of turkey crafts at school, cooking at home, and putting up Christmas decorations and admiring them. Santa also learned that my son wants everything Batman for Christmas (and probably why he disguised his turkey as Batman last week). And if you need a good laugh, the very middle picture shows my daughter trying to block the TV so my son couldn’t see it. She wasn’t very effective, but it was funny all the same.

Week 24

Photo a Day: Weeks 24 & 25 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Halloween week! For Halloween we dressed up as a scarecrow, Robin (Batman’s sidekick), and Jesse from Toy Story. We also had a fun fall day at the park, did a little rocking out and passing out, walked brother home from school a few times, and Sadee was so happy about something (maybe her cheese doodles) that she was just running in circles.

Week 25

Photo a Day: Weeks 24 & 25 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
My favorite part of this week was announcing that we’re expecting kiddo #3 (boy). On top of that, there was some lemon tasting (oh, the faces but she kept going back for more), listening to music on daddy’s phone, 2 broken spatulas (I broke 2 in 2 days and have no idea how), a little family movie (Nemo), lots of blanket time because man it’s getting cold outside (pretty sure fall was only like a week and then, BAM!, winter), and I have a feeling Sadee thinks she’s a bull with her head butting games.

Week 22

This week we watched the Peanuts gang in preparation for Halloween, had some late night popcorn, played with mommy’s mirror, and me and Sadee even snuck in a lunch date without the boys!

Week 23

Photo a Day: Weeks 22 & 23 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week Sadee debuted her cute pink boots, the kids had some coloring fun after their baths and did their usual playful antics throughout the week (singing, video games, and block building in the kitchen floor), and I went to the movies for mom’s night out!

This week was full of cuddles, morning feet in the face, learning time, movie time, popsicles and even a new baseball cap for the baby doll.

Week 21

Photo a Day: Weeks 20 & 21 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week I had a little helper to put the groceries away, we had some great food, tried out a possible Halloween costume, started nebulizer treatments for a nasty congested chest, and more.

Photo a Day: Weeks 18 & 19

Photo a Day: Weeks 18 & 19 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

This week you’ll notice that I’ve changed up the format of my photos. Rather than doing a single photo for each day, I’m going to start doing weekly collages. You still get to see a photo from each day, but this way saves me A LOT of editing time. Consider it a new way I’m making time for other stuff. Enjoy!

Week 18

Photo a Day: Weeks 18 & 19 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week was full of school, homework, afternoon naps, book fairs, cake mix cookies, homemade crock pot macaroni and cheese, and eating whipped topping all by itself.

Week 19

Photo a Day: Weeks 18 & 19 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
This week was full of new rain boots, unscheduled indoor rain (at least according to my daughter), more self inking, a fall at school which created a big head knot, my daughter putting her shoes on by herself, and a trip to the Danone Nations Cup World Finals at Red Bull Arena.

Sooooo, yea. Life happened again these past 2 weeks and I didn’t post Photo a Day last week. That means you get a double dose again this week. I’m definitely not trying to make this a habit, but at this rate it might just be the norm from here on out. Anyways, hope you enjoy!

 Photo a Day: Weeks 14 & 15 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

Did you notice I didn’t post my “Photo a Day” for last week? It wasn’t that I forgot, but life got in the way and I was just out right too exhausted to pull it together. So, this week you get a double dose! The photos are still relevant to their corresponding weeks, but just put into one post to save myself a little bit of sanity last week. Enjoy!
