I love every season but I think during winter and summer I feel the need to move on to the next.
I long for spring and spring blossoms
sunshine and warmth
Its almost here!
Noah and I worked in his room on Tuesday. 
I only have one more box to unpack in his closet.
I think there are more boxes in the garage that belong to him?
Today I hope to finish getting rid of all that is out grown and not needed.
It is hard for me to let go of his tiny little things.
I know when we move we will not be able to take all this stuff with us.
I keep trying to tell my self to get rid of it now.
Anyway, it feels good to get rid of things and that I am getting it done.
Happy Wednesday xo

The Weekend

Noah got a talking gnome in the mail today. Thanks Aunt Lynda.

My sister Lynda sent Noah this cute talking gnome.
He was so happy.
He loves gnomes!


Noah on Sunday morning lol
No more pictures Mom!

the boy

Kick ball before the sun set on Sunday.
After ball we drove to the park so I could get some photos.

me 2012
I finally put my 2012 year of  SP together.
Even though it is my second year to do this, it is still very painful to do.
Last year I did a photo a day but didn't post many in public.
This year I am doing one a week with my iPhone and posting them.
Hope one day they will not be so hard to do.
On the 40 bags happenings I am up to 24 bags so far.
It has slowed down a bit but I am still going and so much more to do.
Have a great week and
Happy Monday xo

pink roses
It's been a cold and crazy week here.
I am still going strong with 40 bags in 40 days.
I have 19 bags out of the house so far.
So much more to go...oh my.
Just when I think I have a schedule down of my days it hits me in the face that I do not.
Between keeping a home, home schooling, making and selling art/photography,
and everything else, I find myself lost some days.
I look forward to a perfect schedule one day soon.
Until then I will just enjoy each and every day as crazy as they are :)
Happy Wednesday xo

Happy Monday

February sky
Joel was off today so Noah and I took off too.
Just enjoying the day and resting.
So far I have 15 bags out of the house for the trash or to donate for my 40 bags in 40 days.
It feels good to get rid of stuff!
I look so forward to getting it all done.
I think it helps me knowing it is just at least one bag a day and just small steps.
I get more than a bag a day but that is fine, the more the better.

bubble fun

bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles

We had fun last week blowing bubbles.
He was soaking wet by the time we had finished.
I so look forward to Spring and Summer :)
So for Lent I think I will be doing the 40 bags.
In hopes to get one bag of stuff out of the house a day.
No clue what I am giving up yet? It is always hard for me to think and do.
It seems to come so easy for Joel.
Happy Ash Wednesday xo

Happy Monday

winter flight
Noah and I had a busy weekend.
I finally got everything put away from those living room boxes.
So happy with how much I got done.
Several trips to the trash can and up and down the stairs to the school/craft room.
Next I must clear the kitchen table. Its a mess from moving a book shelf out.
I have way more to do before I am ever finished unpacking and organizing this house.
I will keep you updated on my progress.
Leaving soon to go and pick up Joel at the airport.
It is always nice when he goes home and we get to facetime with my family.
Noah loves seeing them all...he has been so homesick as have I.
Happy Monday xo

bubbles | like spring today
It was like a sweet spring day yesterday.
Noah and I enjoyed running and blowing bubbles.

mr funny
He thought it was funny to wear this mask after his bath last night.

the toy he picked out
I treated him to a toy today and this is what he picked and the hands that go with it.
Later looking at the fish he also picked a chipmunk dog chewy lol

the boy having fun
I guess he is into masks right now?

duty weekend
We took Joel to the airport for weekend duty.
Noah cried like heck.
He has been talking about Texas and everyone back home and airplanes
so I guess he thought we were all going today? Poor guy.
Noah and I found these cute pink heart marshmallows today.
I had planned to make some but awesome to find them made already :)
My treat for a long day and trying to stay awake and stay warm.
Wishing you a great weekend
and a
Happy Friday xo

project life weeks 1-4

Trying project life again this year. I failed last year when I lost all my photos when my computer crashed....sigh. I don't think my heart has healed from that
project life weeks 1-4
Going to give this a try again this year and hope to finish the year.
I'm doing one week to each page of six 4x6 pockets.
I am using the same book as last year since I didn't fill it all in.
I try working on them on Sunday nights.
It makes it easier if the photos for the week are edited.
I am using both camera and iPhone photos.
I hope to get better as I go and hope to feel more confident about doing it.
It will just be nice to have a year of photos in hand at the end of the year.
I am printing here at home for this so it makes it way easy for me.
So far just using Picasa to make the collages and add words.
Are you doing project life?
Do you print your photos often or do they just sit on the computer?
Happy Wednesday xo
