Project 365

A picture a day for 365 days...a year's worth of fun!

Sunday~16/365

Brendan's friend Brennon spent the night on Sunday night since we had no school Monday due to MLK Jr. day. A pre-bedtime snack of warm cookies and milk! Yummy!

Monday~17/365 While outside playing basketball Monday afternoon, look who showed up?! Brendan was so very excited since they never came around at our old house!

Tuesday~18/365Tuesday we celebrated the 100th day of school! Lots of fun with math centers, crowns, books, counting, a special 100 day trail mix and much much more!! This is a big day for students and teachers alike...the kids like it because it's a fun day to celebrate...the teachers like it because there is only 80 school days left until summer!

Wednesday~19/365 My 2 boys are as different as night and day. The past week the weather has been beautiful...still cool in the mornings but warming into the mid 70s by dinner time. We there are on the way out the door to school...if Brendan could wear shorts 365 days a year, he would! Brendan in shorts & t-shirt...Colin in jeans & a sweatshirt...different as night and day!

Thursday~20/365 Thursday after basketball practice I dropped the boys off at home and headed to Tiff's house to hang out and watch TV...on the way I stopped off at our fav fro yo place for a treat!

Friday~21/365 Friday afternoon we had Honor Assemblies at school. Both Brendan & Colin received Principal's Honor Roll (again!) for having straight A's for the entire semester....they also were put into a special raffle for an ipod shuffle...and guess who won?!...Colin Boy!! That's right, they drew his name and he won an ipod shuffle...he was so excited!!

Saturday~22/365

So Tiff found this amazingly awesome website the other day and it has now become a favorite with healthy, easy and yummy recipes...Hungry Girl is her name and yumminess is her game! This is a recipe that is a moist cake mix and one can of 12 oz. any kind of diet soda...that's it...mix together and bake as directed on the box! I made chocolate cake with Diet Dr.Pepper and topped it with a dusting of powered sugar...
OH. MY. YUMMINESS.

Love the clothes difference in your boys - that's funny!!! All of our shorts are put up right now so they couldn't get to them even if they wanted too - of course in the 40s i don't think they would :) I'm jealous of the 70s though - I'm ready for spring minus the allergies!

Bridget said...

Kyle would definitely wear shorts and tee shirts year round if he could, too. Love these pictures, and I WILL be trying that cake!

Yay! for the yumminess! I love when I find new things that are to die for (well, not literally but you know what I mean).

My kids are night and day too. Now I know that they are boy and girl so automatically different, but their personalities, their preferences completely different. And yes, I have one who is constantly hot and does not want to wear pj's to bed and will take them off in the middle of the night and one who wears warm pj's and snuggles down into the blankets at night.

Congrats to the boys on their awards, especially Colin and that ipod, lucky boy!!

we celebrate our 100th day on Monday, Jan 31st. The kids are getting so excited!

OMDang! I love Hungry Girl. That cake/cola recipe is so good...I started using it while doing weight watchers a few year's ago. I get the hungry girl newsletter and have one of her cookbooks!

Mimi said...

Your boys are beautiful, but that fro yo made me almost drool. Then I read about the cake!

Have a great week,
Mimi

sara said...

my middle son would wear shorts every day of his life if he could!!!

congrats to your boys and to Collin!!!

Now I am off to see this blog...that cake sounds too easy to be so good!!!

Amy said...

We love the ice cream man too!! I think it is good to know that we are over half way there and my kids are also night and day...so funny that you caught it on film.

Lori said...

Really wish it was even close to warm enough to wear shorts. Our wind chill on Friday as -5 and the temp today as we went to church was 0. I am heading right to hungry girls website - on weight watchers and need to have resonable treats to have on hand. Thanks for the tip!

Don't you just love boys! Cute pictures! My boys are so different too!

I'm a pre-k teacher...looks like we have a lot in common! 80 days left...I can't believe it!

The Bug said...

Mmm that froyo looks great! And I would love a piece of chocolate cake right now...

I'm so fickle - I'd want to dress like Colin in the morning & then change about halfway through the day :)

Tiffany said...

Dr. Pepper cake? Are you serious? That sounds like heaven to me!

And congrats to your super boys! What smarty pants!
