Attempting Project 365 Week 1 (or is it 2?)

Project 365 button designed by

Last year (all year long!)
Sara hosted a group of gals for "Project 365." The idea is to take a photo a day to share on your blog. You post once a week and basically describe your week in pictures.

I sort of can't believe I've decided to try this. All things considered. But it seems like an exciting possibility for some consistency on this blog, so it's at least worth a try. I'll be posting on Sundays (hopefully). So now you know. I'm getting a late start (surprised?), because the actual first week was last Sunday, but since it wasn't officially a full week of 2010, I didn't think it was time to start. Or maybe you could just say I had lost track of what day it was, so...duh. Now I'm ready, though. Here we go:


It was truly a day of rest. After church, I mainly sat right HERE all stretched out on Nana's chaise lounge (wrapped up in a Snuggie, no less), blogging and editing photos for the blog. Nice, nice day.


One last photo of the tree before beginning the disassembly process.

Quite possibly my favorite "extra touch" on our tree. Ting ting. Love the sparkle. Love the curly-q's. Love the dimension it adds to the tree. It's just happy stuff.



CHRISTmas Tree Synergy: The Whole is Greater than the Sum of Its Parts

The Aftermath


Noah had his first guitar lesson today. He learned "D," "A," and "E." He was so excited!


Still putting away CHRISTmas. See you next year, Little Drummer Boy.


This boy and his hair. Is it any wonder that I have to carry around dryer sheets (the only thing I use them for!) in my diaper bag??


These two were up and at 'em bright and early. Ready for adventure and excitement...

...ready for the library??

That was our big outing Saturday. A whole two minutes away from the house! Big excitement! Actually, the kids are always excited about the library. I promise. Paul took these photos, so I don't know WHAT these faces are a reaction to. (Bad grammar acknowledgment: what these faces are reacting. That better? I know, I know. Still passive. Whatevs.)


  1. I am so glad you are joining us!!!!

    love a quiet afternoon to catch up on blogging and not feel guilty about it!

    i was so glad to get my decorations down this year, but to be honest, I miss my tree. it was so pretty!

    one of these days you will be posting one of these pictures of Noah playing the guitar next to one of him playing in a band....and it's so great! I love listening to my son play the guitar!
