Week 46 | Project Life

Week 46 was another jam-packed week...aren't they all though! Sunday afternoon I took all three kids to a birthday party at Pump It Up for a classmate, Axel, who turned 4. This was Ryland's first experience at Pump It Up and he sure loved it. I knew he would though...remember this kid has no fear. On this page, I also included the main events of the week. Packing for a family of five was my least favorite.

I stored all of the kids Thanksgiving art projects inside this giant envelope. It will be great to look back in 10 years and see what the kids made when they were little.

The rest of the week included puzzle time with Taylor, photos with Santa at Grandma's work, Wyld Life Turkey Bowling Club, more packing and cleaning, and the long trek to Denver.

NEW 52 | Children's Museum of Denver

On our first real day of vacation in beautiful Colorado, we visited the Children's Museum of Denver. It was similar to the one we have here, but different enough to make it a totally different experience. They had a room where the kids could stand on a platform with walls of bubbles all around them. They also had a veterinarian clinic that was so cool and hands on. I took way too many photos and will have a hard time choosing my favorites. At the end of our visit, all three kids played in the market and did their grocery shopping for almost an hour. I told Grandpa Don he needs to figure out how to build a market quick! Anything to keep them happy and busy is good.

Thanksgiving 2011 | Fairplay, Colorado

We travelled for a total of four days to Denver and then back home. And the time with family up in the beautiful snow-capped mountains in Colorado were completely worth the drive. We spent time with aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and my in-laws. We were able to relax as much as you can with three little ones running around were so excited to see and taste fresh snow. We will forever cherish the memories we made on this trip. Scrapbooking our time away will be so fun!

Week 45 | Project Life

Week 45 was a little bit calmer of a week. It started off with a church potluck after Sunday service. It was great to be with friends and enjoy the yummy creations that everyone contributed. Taylor sat with Addie, her buddy. I also included a photo of the cell phone that Hank and I upgraded to. It's more of a toy than anything!

The photos from this page include a photo of my current projects: scrapbooking. Finally, I am all caught up again. I also include photos of our time over at our friends house for dinner, me reading a nighttime story to the kids, craft time and a photo of Taylor practicing her hip hop. She danced for three hours this day. It's sound crazy but we have make-up classes to cram in and Taylor loves every minute that she is at the dance studio.

Week 44 | Project Life

{WEEK 44}

Halloween night was extra special this year because my aunt Monica who lives in Canada came down for a visit and went trick or treating with us. My aunt said this night was one of her favorite memories of her vacation down here. I love that she gets to see my children and that they get to see some of my long-distance family.

This page includes a team photo of our Wyld Life leaders all dressed up for Costume Party Club last Friday night. It also includes photos from our "ALL IN" area fundraising banquet. Young Life is such an awesome organization, and we are blessed to be a part of it! I also included Taylor's latest artwork. She spends hours a day drawing and is really good at it. She makes better stick figures that me!

Week 43 | Project Life

{WEDNESDAY} The kids had their annual Halloween party at school. I was the homeroom chairperson to organize the party which meant that I was able to be with all three kids and take photos at their party. This year, they combined the toddler and preschool class for the party so Ryland was in on the fun too!

{THURSDAY} Pumpkin patch artwork from Gymboree

{SATURDAY} Photos from the family fun day at Hank's work.

{FRIDAY + SATURDAY} I was able to visit with my Aunt Monica for a couple of hours while the kids played at The Play Factory on Friday. And then on Saturday evening, we headed to Harvest Daze, an annual fall festival put on by our HOA. I added a few photos of the kids decorating the pumpkin with Mr. Potato Head pieces.  

Trick or Treat

The only trick this Halloween was figuring out how to "temporarily" color Taylor's hair at the last minute. In the late afternoon, she decided she wanted to be Ariel. So a little red food coloring did the trick. My parents  and my aunt took the kids trick or treating while I walked along with them and took photos. Hank was back at the house hosting a BBQ party in the driveway.
