Phew what a week!

This week/ weekend has been busy. Family in town, turkey day and a teething baby. Liam hasn't wanted me to put him down lately. Learning to do everything one handed the last few days.

So thankful he sleeps through the night. Otherwise I would be out if my mind.

3.5 weeks till we head to Seattle for Christmas. Can't wait!!

Today I had the day off and I tackled a mountain of laundry. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

P.S : someone decided today was the day to ride their big girl bike

Thursday cuteness

Still trying to get over the sickness that has plagued my household. Slowly catching up from things this week. Work is crazy busy so things have been in the back burner untouched lately.

I managed to finally take photos of the kids in their "big sister" and "little brother" shirts.

I hope to finish two weeks of project life layouts this evening.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far

Sick.. Blogger Down

I had a 3 day weekend. I was pretty pumped for it and then the sickness settled in Thursday night. Not cool. Glad I had 3 days to fight it, but dang it what a waste.

The whole house is sick. Which stinks. My poor Mack and Liam cough all night long.

Monday's... at work and chugging along. I'll be back tomorrow with some project life pages.

Instagram Madness!

I love Instagram! Wait... that's kinda a understatement....

I love Instagram more than Coffee... ok, that went too far :)

I'm a project lifer and love to scrapbook, and I use instagram for lot's of photos and love to add them to my weekly spreads. I use quite a bit of different sites and apps to order my instagram prints. 

FYI, you don't have to be a scrapbooker to print your instagram prints.

Snapfish --> it's my number one site. I got there for mostly all of my prints. They have the best quality hands down. 

To order an instragram print --> make a collage with either 2 instagram prints on a 5X7 which gives you to 4X4 squares.
Or, add 4 instagram prints to a 4X6 and it gives you 4 2X2 prints. I just cut them out.

Persnickety --> They have so many different sizes of prints.
I have ordered, 6X12, 4X4, 2X2, 4X6, 8X10
Great quality and shipped right to your house.

Postal Pix -->
Great app, you can order them right from your phone, pay with paypal and they are shipped to your door. 

Printstagram -->

Mini Books of your prints.

Instagram Prints

Instagram Posters, love them.

and prints of various sizes. 

There is so much out there for printing instagram. Lot's of ideas and lot's of ways to display your square photos. 

Get inspired and print your favorite instagram photos and show them off.

Project Life 2013

Becky Higgins has announced the new 2013 kits including, baby editions and childhood products. Can December come fast enough... I think not.

Things I'm drooling over at the moment...

Childhood products.

2013 Family Album Kit... Seafoam.. can't wait!

Baby Edition for him.. can't wait to get started on Liam's first album

I'm going to try and get pages together and submit them to Becky Higgins and see if I can get on the creative team. It would be so awesome to be part of her creative team and sharing my love for documenting life.

Trick or Treat

Where did October go....? Like for reals, I have no idea how it went that fast. This year was again another crazy year for Halloween. We have one of the busiest neighborhoods in our town. I bought 15 lbs of candy and probably had 250 to 300 trick or treater's this year. 

This year Mackenna was a witch...

The candy Bowls.... I filled these both 3 more times.

Posing by the pumpkin

Doesn't happen to often, but I got a cute smile.

                                                 I told her to do a funny face... this is it.

                                           Witch on a mission.

This year was a blast.. little Liam stayed with me and handed out candy. He was a good sport. 

Hope you all had a good Halloween. 

Liam is 4 months old

I'm a little late on this post, but hey! now is never to late. :) Liam is getting to be so big and let me tell you the last 4 months have been a blur. 

Milestones:* Eating oatmeal w/ bananas, apples or pears
* Lifts his head up while on stomach
* can sit up for a couple seconds
* sits in his bumbo
* just started putting him in his saucer

I can't believe how much time has gone by. He is such a happy little boy, always full of smiles. He loves to eat and sleep. He still wake 1 to sometimes 2 times a night and some other nights he sleeps through the night. Here are a couple of his 4 month photos I took the other day....

Happy 4 Months Liam. Mommy Loves you!
