Project Life: Weeks 2 and 3

So... apparently I decided to absent from the blogging world.  The winter storm, a sick little one, and a good case of January doldrums took me out of the game for a while.  I'm back, though, and wanted to share the last two weeks in Project Life.  Week Two had a lot to do with Stinky starting dance classes and Mommy School.  I used some of his artwork and the box from his dance shoes, as well as a recipe we tried together. I also started using bullet points for each kiddo to tell a little about their week.

After finishing Week 2, I noticed that I'd been a little absent from pictures, so I made a bit more of an effort to get in there for week three, having Stinky take a picture of a group of us, and using my Facebook statuses as a part of the layouts.  This is something I'm going to continue to work on though, so it's not all outside looking in- so I seem a little more present in my own life.  

My goals for the next week are to be more present in the pages (and life, really), and to embellish a little more, make the pages look just a little less flat, maybe even try adding script to the pictures before I have them printed.   Thanks for checking them out!

Love it. And you'll love it so much as they get older because, despite how hilarious and wonderful they are, you still forget. (And you also forget the really crappy times, too, which is a nice bonus--although I have one photo that always makes me laugh and reminds me of how far we've come: my daughter has crazy red eyes and her shirt on her head and she's stretched out and arching her back; I'm obviously dressed for church and am trying to hold onto her; and the clock in the background says five 'til nine. It makes me wonder how long we'd been fighting with each other. My bet is at least 45 minutes.)

Anyway--you're awesome. And I've also thought that same thought about being more present in my own life, especially when I look at my blog. *Where am I?*

Those look great. I'm proud of you for keeping it up- and yes, you need to be in it too!

Your pages look great! I'm working on being in my pages more. I need to be intentional with doing that!

I am NEVER in any pictures. Usually because I am the one who does the remembering to take the pictures. I think there are 2 or 3 pictures of me in the hospital holding my baby. That is something that will change with the next one!
