Project life Monday link up | Intro


 I absolutely love following several groups on facebook
I love seeing what others are working on, their pages, their tips and questions
and all their amazing ideas!  It gives my the itch to get all my stuff out 
{or go shop} and get crafty! I also love browsing Pinterest for inspiration!
Check out my board here for ideas!
The other day I commented on the Facebook groups asking if anyone knew
of any link up parties for sharing pages, ideas ect.  I didn't get much of response
of such a thing out there. I thought what better way to help me stay update
and get more ideas at my fingertips then by starting my own weekly link up party!
That is how Project Life Monday Link Up was born!

Digital Project life | Halloween

I am so far behind on blogging that I am far beyond catching up. I am just going to pick up where we are now and let the rest go. Easier said then done for haha.  As some of you know I use project life to "scrapbook" our family photo albums. Like every year since I started three years I am way behind in them. But in September they came out with a project life app!!! I can now make pages right on my phone anywhere or anytime! So that is how I am trying to keep up with the end of the year! Here are a couple weeks worth of pages!
When I put together my pages I go Monday to Sunday because I like to keep the weekend happenings together!

Halloween day!

Week of November 3rd to 9th

week in the life {Thursday}

Today is a new day!
I declared it my relax and recover day!
I woke up again before my alarm.
Jordan actually slept in until 7:30 after a later then
usual night for him at basketball practice.
I laid around in bed for a bit until I heard him.
He wanted left over French toast from yesterday morning
and chocolate milk he got at the store. He didn't end up eating to
much. He did his usual get ready for school routine and
enjoyed watching the garbage truck out the front window.
 He loves cleaning off the table and taking
out the garbage so he helped me do that this morning.
He also loves playing mommy bank with me.
He will count out his coins and trade them in for nickels, dimes, quarters
and sometimes even dollars.
He almost missed the bus this morning but was
able to run and catch up with it at the next stop.
I finished up my cleaning by vacuuming and putting all the chairs back.
Then it was time to R & R.
Normally I would work out but we can going to do two tomorrow!
I headed upstairs with the plan to catch up blogging and going through
the pictures from the past few days that I haven't had time to do.
 While in the bathroom brushed my teeth I saw my collection
of face masks and decided to use one. I of course picked the one
that had the word relaxation it.

Not to many pictures of my time since it was just me on my computer.
I did take a lunch break and then right back to work.
It feels nice to be caught up. I am actually typing up this blog
right now at 1:47pm. Figured I could have half the day done and do
the other half tonight!
I have an hour before Michelle comes home so I am going to read my book
A Good Woman by Danielle Steel that I started last night in the bath. It is
quite relaxing to listen to the rain snuggled up in my favorite blanket with a
few candles burning. I really need this time to refresh.

Michelle needed to type up a paper for school.
Can you ever have to many electronics going at
When Jordan came in after school he complained of a headache.
He asked me to make him a bed on the couch.
He felt a little warm so I got him cozy and he ended up sleeping for an hour.
I am not a huge cook. It is not something I really enjoy but do it so we
eat each day. Tonight was one of those nights where I just wasn't coming up
with anything so Michelle wanted to make pancakes.
Jordan still wasn't feeling a 100% and asked for two toaster waffles.
That was our dinner.
After dinner Jordan worked on his homework.
When daddy came home he was happy to snuggle up
and watch Thursday night football.

week in the life {Wednesday}

Our morning routine is pretty much the same.
Wake up and check phone.
I always check the weather too.
I like to know what to expect for the days to come. 


I am finding it hard to come up with new ways to
document. These pictures may look similar to the days past.
Made and ate breakfast, got the dishwasher loaded up with dishes and
started it, got Jordan ready for school and had time to play on the deck with
a ball. He loves throwing/kicking it back and forth to each other until we spot
the bus.

After Jordan got off to school I headed over to Christine's to work out. Quick came home and showered and was right back out the door to head to the school to help put together auction baskets for our school carnival next week. 

Back made my go to salad for lunch. I eat this salad about every day. 

Listening to pandora while I go through Tuesday's pictures. 

Michelle home from school. After her snack I asked her to unload the dishwasher while I washed the dishes in the sink. This did not go over well. Her bad attitude came out so she ended up losing her iPod for the rest of the day. Which led her going up to her room to grump as soon as she was done. Life is rough. 

After Jordan was done with his homework the kids asked if they could go to the shell down the road. I said yes so they would have something to do and I could have a few minutes of quiet. I was a little cranky this afternoon and trying my best to not let it show. They came back with lots of goodies. Jordan got chocolate milk, a caramel apple sucker and a tootsie pop. Michelle got a sprite, chips and gum. 


It was thin time to start dinner.
While the mini chicken pies were in the oven I had Jordan read to me. 

In the mail today we got two new movies The Indian in the Cupboard and Friday Night Lights to watch with the kids this weekend. 

After dinner we all hung out in the living room for a bit watching the World Series game. We are not a baseball watching family but josh and Jordan have enjoyed keeping up with it. While watching the game Josh planned basketball practice for Jordan's team while the kids "played" together until one of them ended crying. This is when I disappeared to go take a bubble bath and read a book. Josh left shortly after with Jordan to coach practice. The gym they were supposed to use wasn't unlocked so they ended going to the Y to practice. 

 When kids were settled in bed Josh and I watched a couple shows. Wednesday night is the night that almost all out shows record. 

Week in the life {Tuesday}

Tuesday is a busy day for me! 
I get to go to my sister's house and watch my nephews for the which I absolutely love! I have to be there at 6:15 so I was up early enough to catch a glimpse of Michelle getting ready for her day. 

Since the boys usually don't wake for about an hour I get a little quiet time to sip my coffee and catch up on facebook.  

My nephew Cohen woke crying. I went on to check on him. He was ready to get up so snuggled him up with his blankets. I left his door partly open and told him to call for me when he was ready to get up. 

A little bit later Ezzy woke up too.
I love the big smiles you get when you first walk in and say good morning. 
 He was a little blinded by the lights so took a few minutes to adjust to those. 

Once out of bed they are ready for breakfast. Ezzy usually runs right for the kitchen and starts pulling stuff out. We decided on scrambled eggs, bacon and bananas to eat. 

After breakfast the boys got in the bath for a little play time. These boys are so cute together and always have each other laughing. 

Once dressed it was time to play! We pulled out the rice for a bit, played cars and trains, read books, pushed things around and around and I even let them jump on mommy's bed. 

After all that jumping we were ready for lunch. For a change of scenery on this wet day we headed to Burger King. The boys ate and ate until all the French fries and chicken nuggets were eaten. We even went to order more chicken nuggets. Ezzy spotted the cookies and they both quickly forgot about the nuggets and wanted a cookie instead. 

 Back in the car we took some rear view selfies. I captured the time and temperature too for my pages later. Ezzy ended up falling asleep on the way. Once home we played for a little bit and then got ready for naps. Cohen actually told me he was ready for a nap haha. 

After school on Tuesdays Michelle rides the bus to my mom's house. She then goes to a friends house to get a ride to bones the youth group at our church. 
She sent me this picture while she was there :)

Once Jordan arrived home I made myself some coffee for a pick me up. He wanted to have a coffee date with me so I made him some hot chocolate. 

Jordan has been into word searches for a while now. He loves to work on them together each of us doing a page. And yes he is in his Jammie's already. He loves to change in to them as soon 
As he can if he knows we have no where to go. Before dinner he worked on his homework. For dinner we had leftovers which was a meat and cheese quesadilla for Jordan. 

Josh came home from work and played a bit with Jordan before heading to the gym. 

Jordan All tucked in and off to dreamland. 

Josh was able to pick up Michelle for me at bones after workout. While he cooked up food to eat I was going through the pictures from the day. Then we snuggled up together to watch shows.
