catch the moment 365: week one

Here is the first of (hopefully) 52 weekly posts showcasing 1 photo for each day of 2014. I've decided to link up with others participating in the Catch the Moment 365 (co-hosted by my friend Mindi at Simply Stavish) for moral support and inspiration.  This first week is a bit of an odd one for us because I didn't have to work on any of the days below.  I was scheduled off work the first 5 days of the year and the other two were snow days due to the crazy arctic conditions and foot of snow we experienced here in central Indiana.

1/365: January 1.  On our way to Tennessee for Christmas with my family.

2/365: January 2.  My pretty niece Penelope in front of my mom's tree.

3/365: January 3. Theo making his big decision at Build-a-Bear.

4/365: January 4. Pit stop on the way home at Circle K.

5/365: January 5. Milk mustache.

6/365: January 6. The silliest of buddies.

7/365: Still acting silly, 24 hours later. Same antics, different pajamas.

One week down, 51 to go.  Which photo was your favorite from this week?  Mine has to be day 5, Theo's milk mustache. I don't know what it is, but the innocence in this picture speaks volumes to me.  THIS picture is the reason for doing a Project 365.  Capturing the sweet moments that would otherwise be lost forever. (Although days 6 and 7 would have to be very close, because HOW CUTE ARE THOSE BROS?).

  5. That last photo is amazing and a framer for sure!!! So adorable and their hair is amazing! :) So glad you are doing P 365 and I can't wait to watch what you come up with throughout the year!!! Also, can you believe we have managed to avoid building any sort of crazy 60 dollar build a bear so far?! We are going on 5 years now! The boys always want to go in the store when we are in the mall but so far so good. I just know the day is coming though.

    1. Thank you! That is amazing, we always kind of avoided it until a trip to the mall around Christmas time. They asked to go in, so we did and we just looked, didn't buy anything. They didn't really ask to make a bear, but I'm not sure they understood. My sister and brother in law wanted to do this with them as part of their Christmas gift. They loved the process (which I have to admit, was pretty cute) but didn't get too into the clothes/accessories. So all in all, it wasn't that expensive. I think their bears were $16-20 and we talked both of them into picking out a $7 shirt. That was it! What will be interesting is to see if they remember it and ask to make another bear when we pass by the store at the mall again. Luckily we don't go to the mall very often. HAHA!

  7. I love those last two photographs, beautiful children and I love the position of the photo, very quirky and fun! I really want to take my little boy to Build a Bear, it's something that i've always wanted to do with him and just not got around to it! My favourite photo of mine is photo 7, because my little boy has such a beautiful smile!

    1. They do have some crazy hair! Their dad's hair is super thick and grows fast - it's crazy. I've lost count of how many haircuts they've had. If I would've had girls, they'd be bald. Guarantee it!

  13. Too many choices at Build a Bear. We were there for.ev.er. the first time we visited. But it was definitely so much fun!

    I do like the picture of the contemplative kid but the last one takes the cake!
