Mamatography Weeks 1-4

Mamatography Weeks 1 - 4 
January 1 - January 25, 2014

This one isn't actually from January. This one is from December.  I love the way that this house is decorated! The boys loved it too! :)

Little K and Baby K got these Dirt Devil things just before Christmas. They used to fight over my regular vacuum cleaner, but it is too big and heavy for them to use. So, we bought these.... well, we started with just one, but you know how that goes! The fought over that one. We decided it would be better if they both had their own. Most days they each grab one and vacuum away. Some days they still fight over them, while other days they turn them on and walk away. 

Big K enjoyed his birthday thanks to the snow fall that we received. Isn't it beautiful?!

The birthday card I was working on for Big K (Note: this is NOT the final product!)

I received this hand-me-down changing station from a family friend when Little K was a baby. There wasn't anything wrong with it... but it was a little rough around the edges. When we moved, I decided that I wanted to give it a fresh coat of paint. The door and the drawer front are painted with a blue chalkboard paint. The boys are loving the fact that I wrote their numbers and letters on it! It was such a simple and fun project! 

My yummy lunch one day. A "grilled" cheese and chicken nuggets. (I cook my grilled cheese sandwiches in the oven.)

Big K has decided that he is too big for his Legos, so I took his mini figure holder to take some crafts with me when we left for the afternoon.

A while back, I had announced that I was a member of the Brew Crew... sadly, they canceled the program. I received this mug, spoon and coupon as a parting gift. It was a complete surprise!! 

Baby K decided he wanted to go to sleep with his hat on. Such a goofball!

Little K got a camera for Christmas this year. This is not the one he received.... this was Big K's when he was little. He just loves this one! He walks around pretending to take pictures of everything.

Little K and Baby K are waiting for Big K to come home from school.

We stopped by the furniture store to see about getting my hubby's chair fixed. They had these neat little car things that the boys LOVED!

Little K and I walked around the house all morning holding hands. He was being super sweet! I wasn't allowed to let go of his hand!

I made this adorable chick card for my hubby as part of his Valentine's / Anniversary gift. 

I was asked to make a Valentine's Day card along with a birthday card, and the recipient loves Minnie Mouse. I couldn't decided between these two cards for the Valentine's card.

This is the start of the Valentine's for Big K's class.

Mamatography is back for 2014!!

I am so excited that another year has started, and that means another year of Mamatography posts!! I know that I didn't get a weekly (or even monthly) post done throughout last year, but a lot of things happened that kept me away from my computer. I take tons of pictures everyday of my kiddos and the things that we go... for me, that is the easy part!! I don't always remember to take the pictures off of my phone and get them onto the computer to upload here. I have been trying to upload pictures onto here for the past few days, and I can't seem to get any of them uploaded. I figured that a written post works for now, right??
This year has started out to be a pretty good year! Here is a re-cap until I can pictures to upload:
We rang in the new year at home with our boys.
Big K celebrated his birthday.
 My amazing hubby celebrated his birthday.
We went out on our first date in at least 3 years!
We have had a few snow days so the little boys have enjoyed having their big brother home!
I have been working on getting Valentine's cards made for Big K to share with his class.
(That is taking much longer than I thought - nap time doesn't seem to happen at the same time or last near long enough most days!)
We have spent a lot of time (definitely every Sunday) going through boxes and unpacking. We have FINALLY cleaned out the garage enough to put our car in! We can also move around in our basement again! Slowly, but surely, we are getting there!
Again... I am so incredibly sorry that there are no pictures with this post! I have been trying to upload them and I do not have any idea why they won't upload! :(  I hope to figure it out soon!

 This post is part of the Mamatography 2014 Project with Diary of a First Child and Momma Jorje.

We are taking (at least) a photo a day, a collage or a picture each week to keep a record of our year. Join us at any point during the year and start sharing your own daily photos!

Happy Birthday, Big K!

Happy Birthday, Big K!! On this day, 11 years ago, we welcomed Big K into this world. He has grown into such a loving and wonderful young man. Sometimes he thinks he is much older than he really is! It is early, and he is still in bed, but he will his birthday wish - he has a snow day today! Nothing is better than being able to stay home on your birthday! :) Hope everyone is having a great 2014 so far! :)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! :)
We have had some very big changes this year and I am definitely looking forward to what 2014 brings! We are still unpacking (yes... 6 months later), but our house is coming together nicely. I still have a ton of boxes to empty and go through. I am hoping to get that done soon, then I will have more time to get my posts typed and pictures uploaded! I hope everyone has a  wonderful 2014! :)
