catch the moment 365: week two

It was back to somewhat normal routines after a couple of weeks of Christmas break topped off by a few snow days.  Getting back into the groove of the daily grind was a little tricky at best.  Luckily the boys' first week back to reality was only three days long before two more "mommy & daddy days."  Unfortunately we started the first full week with more illness.  When is enough enough? Because we've had enough!

8/365: January 8. Bathtime = Playtime.

9/365: January 9.  Frozen tundra.

10/365: January 10. Time sheet day.  It's not every day that you get to use correction tape.

11/365: January 11. De-Christmasing the house. Plastic, shatter-proof ornaments are basically the best thing ever when you have little kids.

12/365: January 12.  The great thaw.  Finally, a sunny warm(er) day to melt the foot of snow.

13/365:  January 13. They actually cooperated with posing together - they just wanted to show off their coordinating shirts.

14/365:  January 14. Sick day home with mommy. 

Which is your favorite picture from this week?  I kind of like day 14 - Theo's sweet, baby, innocent face.  Why can't my skin be that perfect? I don't get to stare at him being still for very long most of the time.  I also love the colors of the ornaments on day 11. 

xo,

  1. I'll have to look into shatterproof ornaments next year, especially since I'll have an 8 month old around Christmas time.

    1. They are genius! Of course this pic was an extreme close-up, but other than that you don't really notice that they are imposters!

  2. The ornaments are beautiful! I used to balk at plastic ornaments - until I had kids! Now that's all I'll buy! We just took our Christmas tree down yesterday (sad, I know), and it was bittersweet. I hate the end of Christmas...

  4. Love your bathtime picture and the colorful ornaments. We love our shatter-proof ornaments! One day maybe I will get glass ones, but for now it is just not a good idea with my little kiddos!

    1. Thank you, I agree...in the same boat. We let the boys both pick out one glass ornament - a character that they liked, but put them where they couldn't reach them.

    1. RIGHT! If they had been wearing anything else, they'd be like "no way mom!"

    1. Ha, yes probably! That was at a friend's house, not ours. I had to snap a pic because for some reason the boys are obsessed with them. They are fascinated!

  17. How funny I've sat here staring at your time sheet picture trying to remember the last time I have used white out. I honestly can not remember using or even buying it. I want to say 2007 when I last worked in an actual office but I don't know. How funny how times have changed.
