Project 365 - Week 20

Project 365

I only have a few minutes, so this is gonna be quick ... This week was a roller coaster ride. There were some sad moments (which also came with messages of God's sweet grace!), painful moments and happy moments.

So, I guess this week was, well, LIFE!!!

May 24 - We had some playtime at my sis-in-love's house. The girls ADORE her puppy - and it is mutual! This was taken with my cell phone, so it is not the best quality, but you can see the love!!!

May 25 - Memorial Day. One of Hattie's all time favorite movies is Lady & The Tramp, but we left our copy on an airplane back in November. However, our sweet friend Mary found us a VHS copy at a garage sale for .75!!! The only VCR in the house is in our bedroom, so it gave Hattie an excuse to curl up in Mommy & Daddy's bed to watch ... and she did not move from this spot through the entire movie!!!

May 26 - Saying goodbye. It broke my heart to see my girl hurting this much. It Blessed my heart to see my boy lovin on her the way he did. And it burst my heart with joy and pride to see her process everything and voice her feelings and share a piece of her heart.

And every one of those emotions came to a big ol head when, as we drove home, a plane passed overhead and Hattie cried out "Wait Budder! Come back!!!"

It was almost too much for this mama's heart to bear.

May 27 - Ouch. This is the culprit. This laundry basket grew wings, flew off it's perch and down into my path as I ran through the laundry room. The rest of the story is one post down if you want to read all the sordid details and have pity on me ... or, ya know, LAUGH LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!!!!

Your choice.

May 28 - Fashion statement. This is what I found when I went to get a certain little girl outta bed. Stylish, no?

May 29 - First milkshake ... and the last for a while. This is what happens when ya turn your back for just a minute.

It was just as fun as you can imagine to clean up ... and I didn't even TRY to take a shot of the FLOOR!!!

May 30 - Lessons learned. Hubbs, who says I am a bad influence on our children, spent some quality time with our youngest child ...

He taught her to stick her tongue out.

I am so proud...

So, that was our week - head on over to Sara's place for more. You can even join the fun yourself! It is such a pleasure to look back and see our year documented. I LOVE it!

How was YOUR week?

6 of ya left some love:

so how in the world did that little girl get her shirt like that?!! don't you wonder what she was trying to do? :)

Love your pictures. Yes the one picture is heartbreaking. :( But the shot of sticking out the tongues is so cute. My husband is the "naughty influence" in his family. He teaches all the youngers kids things like calling someone a "goofball" or sticking their tongue out. I too am so proud.

Lisa said...

The girls are just so sweet. Oh my! I bet you were cleaning up that mess for a while.

Is Lady & The Tramp a "safe" movie for young kids? Its so hard to find good Disney movies...I never knew that until I had kids! She's got a great attention span.

Those crazy laundry baskets! :)

You did such a nice job capturing special moments in your week! Daddy teaching daughter how to stick her tongue out. Hmmmmm. Send 'em both to the corner! LOL

Have a great week!

Rachel said...

Those pics are adorable! I love the tongue-sticking-out :)

Thanks for visiting my blog this morning and the hair input! I appreciate it!!

When they are good they are my children... when they are bad they are his children ;-)

I love Lady and the Tramp... I have a vhs copy that will be in my yard sale in a few weeks.
