Project Life Week 20

I think Ali Edwards said it best when she said that some weeks the results are just okay. It was one of those weeks that I was a little behind on and when that happens and I'm scrambling to finish on Sunday, the results are just okay. There isn't a lot of creativity going on here, but in the grand scheme of the whole book, it fits in just fine!

On side one I included a picture of almost all the von Minden women. For some reason Mia wasn't in the picture. I got a sweet photo of my two boys snuggling. Mia's class had an author share and we went to watch her read her Dalmatian story.  Her class also went on a hiking field trip and Mark went as a chaperone. He sent me pictures throughout the day! I included my last nest peek picture too. Our baby robins flew off this weekend and already I miss watching them grow!

On Thursday the babies and I spent most of the day outside. I took a lot of pictures of the babies playing in the garden. I also set up the timer and got a few shots of me weeding. I took all of these and made an insert. I took one of the Design A page protectors and cut it down. It probably my favorite part of this week's layout because it shows so perfectly what a day with these two munchkins looks like---esp. lately.
First side of the insert. 
Side two of the insert. 
The second half of the layout covers our weekend trip to my mom's house. We had a busy weekend with lots of cousins playing and thrift store shopping. In fact, right in the middle of one of our store visits we got a call that my sister in law was in labor. She gave birth to baby Liam at 29 weeks. He's such a little fighter and so far is doing really well. I covered his photo because I haven't okay'd it with my brother yet & it's a little heartbreaking to see him all hooked up to the machines. 

Here is a closer look at that page. That cute little baby is my nephew Grady. Hollis and Naomi adore him and love to give him kisses.

Hey! I'm the girl who told you I saw you at ARC.

Those Charlie Harper prints are a great find!

I love the concept of Project life and I'm doing something similar but a little less often.
