Glimpses Week 8

In order to be more consistent with Project 52 and the true intent of the challenge, I am going to update these posts to align with the Glimpses title. This week's glimpse into our life isn't perfection photography. The sharpness is off. But I love the movement and Liam had the best time. In fact, he is still talking about feeding those ducks and I am so glad that I live in a neighborhood where we can walk to feed the ducks. Even in this big city, there are pieces of a small town that are brought to life in our neighborhood.

I am so thankful to the chic critique for sponsoring such an incredible opportunity to bottle and capture our precious everyday memories.

Making the "Honey Do" List

I am posting a tad out of order, but in an effort to meet my new year resolution goals, I am posting as soon as I edit... or lack of edits... I have two amazing little 2 year old birthdays to post and I promise they are coming, but for now... let's talk about Nathan and Diana!

Glimpses Week 7

This week we found out that some of our very best friends are going to have another baby boy and we are so thrilled for them! This means that Liam's best older bud is going to have a brother. He has been so incredible to Liam and he is going to be an awesome big brother. We had a late celebration dinner and these guys spent the rest of the evening mastering the ipad. The newest generation is being labeled Generation Alpha. Gen A is suspected to be the most formally educated generation in history. Because all of their toys are electronic and/or battery powered, it is no wonder they can navigate a computer or phone or in this case an ipad better than their parents. "These 'Google' kids are really being shaped in a world of technology and consumerism."
Don't forget to head over to the Chic Critique forum and check out the rest of the everyday, weekly glimpses!

A Sweet Supper

Did I mention before how thrilled I am to be a part of such an amazing supper club with an incredible group of friends? We break it up into 2 month segments which means you are only responsible for hosting once a year... that my friends is totally doable and way less intimidating if you ask me. Unless of course you have to follow the Robbins... wink...

Glimpses Week 6

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen.

This week I decided to capture a glimpse into our nightly routine. This makes my heart happy. Join us in this journey with the Chic Critique Forum and share some of your everyday moments to love.

Birthday Preparation

There is a ton of preparation that goes on before a big event such as Liam's second birthday party! The theme is carefully picked months in advance and the weeks leading up to the big day are well, crazy! I take all the help I can get, even if it is from a toddler!

Did you miss these? I am back with a Valentine's Day wink inspired by a guest on one of my favorite blog's Enjoying the Small Things. I always struggle with finding the perfect toddler appropriate classroom gifts for all of Liam's friends. Last year we made our very own Love Song Remix CD which I think was a hit. This year we made heart shaped crayons and I was thrilled with the results!

A Canned Trip

We were long overdue a trip to our hometown of Corsicana. And even though I was dreading the car ride especially the weekend after our trip to NOLA, we had a great time traveling through memory lane and visiting family! Mea scored some sparklers for us to celebrate the New Year. These were not your regular sparklers! They were SUPER sparklers that seemed to last forever and gave off the most divine glow!

Glimpses Week 5

Superbowl XLVI was a Touchdown!

We started the night with friends, beer and fat food...

and then let Liam stay up till the last score at home.

It's not too late to join the Chic Critique Forum and many other photographers in the Glimpses Project 52. It is seriously one of the best challenges I have taken on. And so rewarding!
