Project 365 ~ {another} 2 Weeks Worth!

Project 365 button  designed by

A Picture a day for 365 days...a year's worth of fun! I hope you have as much fun seeing a peek into my week as I am posting about it!

Sunday we had lots of help getting smaller things from old house to new house. My mom and I spent a lot of time getting the kitchen together.

Monday we had our first dinner in our new house...what's better than pizza?!

And since we had little, very little, furniture in the house we blew up our air mattress to sit on, or in this case...snooze on!

Tuesday~312/365 This was ONE pile of stuff for drop off at Goodwill...we have made 3 HUGE trips so far with at least 1 more to go.


The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are the hardest for kindergartners and kindergarten teachers...they are hyped up on toys and commercials and Santa and everything Christmas that it is so hard to focus. Sadly they had a few not so good choice days...this was one of those days...everybody ended up on sad!

Thursday~314/365 I finally put up the Christmas tree {at the new house}...


Our new house the day before we moved in

Saturday~316/365 Saturday brings us to moving day...we had 7 football players, 3 coaches, 3 trucks, and 1 trailer to help us took less than 3 hours...this is the after pizza party for all those who helped out! So glad I married a football coach!


In our old neighborhood, the boys very rarely played outside...we had been in our new house less than a day and they already had tons of friends! They came looking for Brendan and Colin while we were at church!! They have played outside with their new friends everyday since we have moved in.

Monday~318/365 Monday December 13, 2010 brings us to the boys' first semester band concert. They both did AWESOME! Brendan plays the trumpet and Colin plays the trumpet. Here they are after the concert with their band teacher, Mr. H.

Tuesday~319/365 I finally started putting things up on the walls and this house is beginning to feel like home... happy sigh...

Wednesday~320/365 Gingerbread {or graham cracker} Houses built by my kindergarten class...a yearly tradition.

Thursday~321/365 Thursday I baked banana bread and made cookies for my fellow kindergarten teachers for Christmas.

Friday~322/365 This is what I got from my Secret Santa on Friday...YUM! This is my most favoritest kind of candy in the whole entire wide world...and you can only get it at Christmas time. Thanks were a great Secret Santa!

Saturday~323/365 Last minute picture so I could have a Saturday picture...Ryan eating taco salad right outta the bowl!

This is what Sara says on her blog about Project 365...
"I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way! "

Well said Sara...thanks for letting me tag along!
Join in with Sara...It's not to late to join the fun!

I love the layout and open floor plan of your new house!!!

What a time to be moving!!! And yet you still had time to bake!! You're amazing!!!

Merry Christmas!

OK, I cracked up at the color chart. I knew exactly what it meant without reading what you had to say about it. Those poor kinder kids, they're just so young!

I love your new house. The outside is just my style and I like the open layout.

Having all the football players to help move is such a blessing!

And I love that your boys are outside playing every day. I'm sure that has made the move much easier to adjust to.

I musta missed something, I don't remember you saying you were moving!

What a busy few weeks! No wonder you missed last week. Glad you are settling in and the boys are enjoying the new neighborhood.

After those two weeks you deserve a break. Thank God for Christmas break. Enjoy it but don't forget to take pictures. My camera is acting up again. GRRRRR.
Love the new house and that taco salad looks so yummy. So glad it is starting to feel like home.
Actress got some of that candy for Christmas from a teacher. it is so yummy.

The Bug said...

Yeah - maybe I knew (& I probably did) but I forgot you were moving! I'm glad you had a lot of help. When we moved last year Dr. M pretty much did the whole thing himself. Never again!

Alicia said...

Busy, busy!!!!

Wow..congrats on the new home! I can't wait to see more pictures of it!! Now that my kids are in school, I know what those yellow cards mean!

Love the new house but the thing that brought me the most joy was the neighborhood kids. My best childhood memories were with the neighborhood kids. Thrilled to hear that can still happen in our crazy world. You all will love, love, love your new home and your new neighborhood. Fun days ahead.
Merry Christmas to all. We love you.

Stephanie said...

I LOVE your kitchen!!!! Gorgeous house and how cool that you had so much help moving - that rocks!

I'm catching up on blogs and going to start being better about blogging and commenting - I got so behind!

I mentioned to Mimi about the 365 project. Do you scrapbook? If so I use Becky Higgin's project life system. She has an album and everything - it is wonderful!!!!

Hope you enjoy your weekend - I'm thinking I'm ready for summer because we are loving this easy schedule over vacation!

I wonder if all schools are on the card system now? Our school does that here too and I've told the kids I'm going to start doing it at home since it seems to work so well there!
