Chloe's Home and Video

On Monday, tiny Chloe got to come home from the NICU! After 4 1/2 months, it was such an awesome day!!!! I was honored that they asked me to come along to take pictures and get to watch!! Here's Chloe's video (with pictures from her blog) and ones from when she came home!!!! You will have to download Active X probably before watching it... My friend Ann said that she couldn't see it with her Apple computer though :( So, she helped me with a spot that might work for Apple users... I will come back after I upload to there to give a link for that video! :)

Doing not Getting Done

"I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less”
See project @ Live in the Moment

I think I'm going to make a version of this for the white room... I've been surfing around the web looking for inspiration for the room... I'm going to do one aqua-ish wall (with possible chocolate stripe), one chocolate brown (with photos all over it), and two a tan-ish/ beige color because they will go down the hall and into the kitchen so they have to match those rooms...

I found these cool things while surfing:

Here's how to make it: link

some pictures from today...

Today, we painted paper snowflakes with crayons over the stove! Then, we sprinkled on some glitter! Super fun! All of us tried it-even Jas! :)
Found this idea from Family Fun Digital Magazine (we altered it with food coloring and sprinkled in some bird seed to see what would happen)... We're going to hang them up outside tomorrow after they freeze.

Ari woke up from her nap with Pippi Longstocking hair! :)

Crayon Painting!

Look at this! Ari and I are going to try it tomorrow after going to storytime (if Kylie doesn't have a delay for the 3rd time in a row!). I'm going to do a little snow theme with her this week (so original, isn't it?! lol!)

one little word

I got this idea from Ali Edwards... One Little Word

my word is "dance" i want to revel in being with my girls (we always dance during the credits of a movie and it's such a fun memory), be close to my husband and SHOW him how much he's loved, talk to God about the little things and enjoy being in His presence, exercise regularly because i'm almost done losing my weight!


i want to:

complete project 365 this year
learn how to make teas
enjoy many family times
use my blog more
do one little word
pray more- just little prayers throughout the day
make goal at weight watchers
show jas how much i care often through little things

Project 365.... Again

I love the idea of a photo journal for the year... I am attempting to do Project 365 again this year... Last year, I made it for the longest yet- about 3 months! This year, I hope to make it super easy for myself to finish... I'm not always going to process the pictures or put frames on them or anything... It will just be the picture that makes me think of something special or important from that day (and it doesn't have to be a pretty picture either)... So, here goes! You can find my Project 365 here: 365 Moments
