I realize I haven't shared my 12 on the 12th for February. I kept saying to myself I was going to put it in a mosaic, but who am I kidding?? So I finally just decided to post and share the pictures here - until I can get them put into a layout later.
Today was a day of Valentine parties and a baby shower for one of my middle child's teachers. She actually goes in TODAY to be induced so little Penelope will be joining the world sometime in the next 24 hours!! LOVE babies!!
This says it all about today in my opinion. What happened to General Beuregaurd Lee declaring Spring was on it's way in the South? This was at 11:30 - almost freezing cold with rain - ick!
Just a little visual of my new desk arrangement. I'm not liking the computer and printer back here. It's actually driving me a little bonkers when someone needs to get on the computer and I'm pushed out of my element to sit on the other side of the desk. Gasp!
I went in my bathroom to take some self-portraits (see next photo) and I remembered how much I love my Bath and Body Works Gentle Foaming Soap . . . so of course, I grabbed a picture of it.
So it's a little grainy but it's still one of the most decent self-portrait head shots I've ever taken. I kind of hate how my bathroom gets some of th best natural light, yet I hate the decor so I never want to take photos in there.
My son Matthew came home so proud today. In previous years, he's always hated coloring. He put his time into this drawing though because his teachers have a contest every month where they color and then the kids go and put little stickers on the one drawing they vote for and think is the best. He was super-excited because THIS TIME he got a vote!
Lord, my son's dresser. There's so much here that is so him. The giant book of Q&As, the football photo and all those sports trophies; of course, his Valentines "holder" made of an orange bag; and his super-cool lava lamp that he got for Christmas . . . oh, and his preschool graduation diploma is back there too - waiting to be hung up on his wall.
I know I say this a lot on this blog, but I'm so thankful that my boys are getting along better now that they're both a little older. Sure, they still have their fights but images like this one just melt my heart. They have become so creative from playing off of each others imaginations: Lance helps build legos and come up with story lines and Matthew helps build the train tracks and brings a dose of reality back into Lance's imaginary world!
Couldn't resist the trains and garbage truck image - They truly make this a whole little city.
Ahhhh, a freshly delivered Shutterfly order. Great scrapbooking material in here!!
The view out back from inside my scrapbook room . . . love this view - so much better than the one I had where I faced a wall . . . and even better than when the desk almost faced out front too. Backyard = much nicer than front yard!
Hubby cut me a break tonight - no cooking - and ordered Chinese out. I ate Sweet and Sour chicken with stir fry veggies and fried rice with wonton soup. I'm not usually a big Chinese fan, but after the weather and crazy day, it just seemed perfect.
Do you do a 12 on the 12th project? Leave me a link so I can start checking out your days :)
