Project 365 2013: Our Life in Photos January 20th – 26th

Project 365 2013 Jan 20th - 26th

My favorite Instagram photo from the week.


January 20th: This past summer we had a rabbit that lived under our front sidewalk. About once every week, Leah goes and stuffs lettuce or carrots down the hole to “take care of her bunny”.


January 21st: Ella woke up at 6:30 this morning ready to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. She insisted we make decorations and cards and she wanted a cake, but settled for cookies instead. She asked me to make a construction paper Martin Luther King with a mustache, bow tie and red shoes. Have I mentioned before that I have the artistic talent of a toddler?


January 22nd: It was so bright and sunny outside today, which made me think it had to be warm. Leah and I decided to take Meg on an outing to the dog park. Once we got there, I realized that it was a lot colder than it looked… 13 degrees to be exact. Brrrr!


January 23rd: Today was my husbands 39th birthday. I felt bad because it was such an uneventful day for him. One exciting thing that happened for me though was that my new coffee mug from the Symmetrical Pottery Etsy store arrived. Isn’t it fabulous? Nick, on the other hand, got shafted for his birthday. Sorry, honey!

Jan24 Blanket

January 24th: Kelly’s blanket she has had since she was born went missing over the weekend. I had spent most of the weekend de-cluttering and took several big tubs of stuff to Goodwill. I was convinced, and panicking, that I had accidentally taken it to Goodwill. We searched high and low and near and far and there was no sign of the blanket anywhere. Finally, today, I went onto Ebay and searched and found the exact blanket, although brand new. I bought it and 10 minutes after, I had a hunch to look in a bag in their closet. I found her pink blanket stuffed into a dominoes container, inside a purse, inside their closet (courtesy of her 3 year old sister, I’m sure). Even though Kelly doesn’t use her blanket much, I was so happy that we hadn’t taken it to Goodwill and that they were reunited! Such relief.

jan25 crazy hair day

January 25th: About as crazy as our hair gets for crazy hair day at school!

Jan26 Tire Swing

January 26th: 13 degrees earlier in the week, in the 60’s today. You’ve gotta love Kansas weather. Ella, Leah, Meg and I took advantage of the sunshine and spent part of the afternoon at the park!

That’s it for our week in pictures! I think this coming week, I’m going to challenge myself to take pictures that will look good edited in Black and White. Want to join me?

Remember you can see outtakes of our week on Instagram, Facebook and Flickr!

    So glad you ended up finding that blanket!! Loving the photo of the sisters with the crazy hair. As the oldest of three girls, my childhood is filled with many fun hair styling memories, :-)

    LOVE this! The instagram shot is gorgeous. Feeding the bunny is precious! I too tried to take my kids to the park bc it was sunny only to discover it was FREEZING. I LOVE the coffee mug and may have to order one myself. I’m so happy the blankie showed up…. I’m almost certain it’s the exact same one my daughter has (is it from Target from years ago?). Here in Indy we are expected to reach the 50’s today, so hopefully we’ll get to the park too!! Have a great start to your week!!!

    Re: Pink Blankie. You prayed and then had a “hunch” to look in the exact same place blankie was. Godwink!

    A lovely way to enjoy my first cuppa on a Monday, Kristin! My youngest (now 20!!!) inherited a blanket from one of his older brothers after he felt he’d outgrown it. And it’s still alive and well around here. When he comes home for semester breaks he wraps it around his shoulders when he’s at the computer — a sight for sore eyes! Love the B&W shot of your daughter on the path. Beautiful!

    Only my youngest two have special blankets or toys, but they are so special and important. I can imagine how you must have felt not knowing where it was. (I am jealous of that sunshine. Enjoy!)
