What happens at night here..

Every night it's about the something...

Pile in the house and unload everything.
Start to make dinner. (Entertain Liam and Mackenna asking to eat every snack on the world while we cook.)
Eat dinner. ( tell Mackenna a million times to sit down and eat.
Put Liam to bed
Play with Mackenna
Brush teeth Mack to bed time and tv, scrapbooking, edit photos, and then lights out.

Crazy nights every night but we manage to get it done every night.

Project Life 2013 Weeks 1-3

2013, ummm its almost the end of January, where is time going?

Here are my spreads for 2013 weeks 1-3. I'm using the Seafoam edition and the Studio Calico Project Life Kit. I'm so glad that I decided to join the Studio Calico subscription for Project Life. I love all the stickers, embellishments and cards that come with the kit. So worth it. 

I got a new printer. It's call the Selphy Cannon CP 900 So easy to use and all of my photos are printed using this printer. Love it. 

Here are my spreads..

Love this project and system and so glad that I finished all of 2012.

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

I've never made a big deal about new years before, but something seems different this year. 2012 was a tough and big year for my family. So very exciting moments and some really hard items to swallow. 

Liam, my son was born this year, June 2012 -- He has brought a lot of joy to everyone this year and also our family just feels complete with him here. He is now 6 months old, and it went so fast. This year we learned my mom's cancer has returned. 8 chemos later it had moved and grown a mass in another area. Although, the dr said there is nothing else they can do at this point, my mom is doing more chemo starting this month

With every negative there is a positive. I got to see my brother twice this year after leaving for the army. Also, my grandfather visited us from New Zealand in September and my Grandmother is coming to visit from New Zealand this month.

I have a couple resolutions this year. 

1. Start Savings accts for the kids --> Emergencies, Braces (hope not), college. For what ever they need we have the money for it on the spot.

2. Eat Healthier as a family. It's easy to get in a routine and cook fast unhealthy meals as a busy family. But with more planning I hope to change that this year. 

3. Saving's Acct. I'm almost 26 and I've never had a savings acct with actual money in it. So, for the first time we are putting money in savings. I've set up a second direct deposit from my check to go into directly. 

4. Simplify, Enjoy and live life to the fullest this year. 

Happy New Year Everyone!
