Crafting

I've been on a crafting spree lately and have been working on a bunch of different things. I've started the girls' Halloween costumes. They are both going to be fairies this year. I've made tutus and I'm working on the fairy wings. The tutus turned out so cute. I can't wait to get a picture of both girls when the costumes are complete. I've also been working on my Halloween decorations (I know, it's really early) and I've been making things for my annual craft boutique.

Lake Tahoe

We spent the weekend in Lake Tahoe swimming and eating. Madison was very excited about staying in a hotel and using her sleeping bag. We had a great time but I'm happy to be home.

Completed Week in the Life - Part One

Way back in April I actually finished my week in the life project, but never posted any of the pictures. I really love how this album turned out. I tried to keep it simple and make sure I took a picture of all our normal routines. As I was putting this together, I definitely noticed the amount of pictures decreasing as the days went by. I think I took almost 100 pictures on Monday, and by Sunday, I was down to a few. I did end up having to take some filler pictures the following week, but now I'll know what I need to do for next year. I can't wait to look at these down the road and see how our lives, routines, hair styles, hobbies, etc. have changed.

Time Just For Me

It's not often that I get a lot of time just for myself. I have gotten a few nights this week and it has been so nice. Sidney goes to sleep at 6:30, Madison at 7:00 and then I've got the rest of the night while Mike plays baseball. I've been doing lots of scrapbooking, lots of cooking and lots of knitting. I do wish I could stay awake a little longer, but I'm usually asleep by 9:30. I don't know how I managed to got out at night while I was in college. Now I am perfectly happy with a good book and my comfy bed.
