365 - Week 12

12 down, 40 to go :)

March 19th - We have started walking every night after dinner - it's a great way to reconnect with the kids.

March 20th - The Cherry trees have started to blossom and I love watching them come into full bloom.

March 21st - Linden loves going down the driveway on his skateboard - me on the other hand not so much.

March 22nd - So much for the diet - I can't resist the Peanut Buster Parfaits at DQ.

March 23rd - I saw these Snow Geese on Westham Island and the snow covered mountains in the background - so beautiful!

March 24th - Linden loves to clean the windows when we go fill up for gas.

March 25th - These two look like they are cooking something up - they couldn't stop laughing all the way home.

365 - Week 11

Some weeks are harder than others to take pictures every day but I have really enjoyed doing it so far and hope I can keep it up for the whole year! Here's another peek into my life this week.

March 12th - I had to do 2 pictures today. It's the last day of soccer for this season. Linden had his Fun Day (which wasn't so fun in the cold rainy wind) and Rhys had hos gold medal game - they lost but Silver is great too!

March 13th - My mom dropped off a Corned Beef Pie for us for dinner tonight - It's been so long since I've had one and they are so yummy!

March 14th - I got him!! I finally got a picture of the Blue Heron, it took a few months but he didn't fly away from me :)

March 15th - The cherry blossoms are coming out - can't wait until they are in full bloom.

March 16th - Linden wanted to make a St. Patricks Day goodie for his class so we mage a baggie of Lucky Charms with a bag header that said "Have a Magically Delicious St. Patricks Day"

March 17th - One of my goals this year was to be published in Paper Crafts Magazine and today I got the most amazing news - they picked up one of my projects - WOOT!

March 18th - Celebrating Nicki's Birthday - these girls are so much fun!!

Linden really is a character. Here he is at Disneyland a few years ago trying on all the hats and acting out the characters.

March 8th - Both my son's lost 2 teeth today for a total of 4 teeth - what's up with that.

We Scrap Challenge

It's my turn over at We Scrap for a challenge today and since it's March Madness I thought a perfect challenge would be to do a sports layout.

Here's mine. These pictures are when my son's school won the Pin Guard Tournament. It was very exciting for them and I was so proud :)

Hope you can head over and join in the fun!
