Project 365

Well, as I feared, I do not have the time or commitment for Project 365....I have too many other things going to think about taking a pic everyday of my kids. Sad, huh?? It is only a couple weeks into January, and I have already forgotten to take like 2 or 3 daily pics.

Oh well....it is a neat project and I congratulate everyone who has the stamina to do it.

Daniel and Spectacular Spiderman

Well, with Spectacular Spiderman being SUCH A BIG part of Daniel's life, I hunted all over for an mp3 of the theme song from his show. I finally found one and Sierra had the idea to hook my ipod to her icat and play the song as Daniel played with his new web blaster and than with his Spiderman Scooter. lol Crazy kid!!!

2009 Expectations

January -- Daniel turns 4 on 1-7! Where have the years gone? He is such a joy to us....a real mama's boy. I love that guy!

Also for January is our 2nd family trip to Disney World. The kids are anxious for the time to arrive. I am, too. I love that place.

The end of January marks a milestone for the 2 adults in the house...Matt and I will celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. Matt has something planned...we'll see.

February is not a month I look forward to...and yet it is! Daniel will be having surgery on his eye mid-month. I HATE the thought of my baby being put under....and something as vital as his eye being worked on. But I know it is important and will be a great help to him.

March will be Spring Break for Sierra. No plans except a possible camping trip. I HATE CAMPING!

April...not sure what will be in store for this month??

May -- Well, the biggest thing of all for this month will be my BABY girl turning 10! Yep, double digits! CRAZY!!

Also for May will be the beginning of SplashTown. We have already purchased our season passes. Last summer was so fun...we look forward to doing it again.

June will mark the end of Elmentary school for Sierra. What a sad occassion. She is growing up so fast.

June and July will be a lot like last year. Lots of SplashTown...hanging out with friends....going to the library...etc.

August will bring Sierra to Intermediate school as she starts the 5th Grade. Crazy!! It will also be the last school year Daniel will be at home. It will also be the month of my birthday...I will be 35...WHOA!

September through November will most likely be a blur of school activities. Who knows what Intermediate School will bring?!!

November -- the birthday of Matt...another year where it will not fall too close to Thanksgiving. He hates for that to happen (HELLO, at least it isn't at Christmas like my sister whose b'day is the day after!!). Thanksgiving has been a blur of activity for us for the past few years. We will, hopefully, be at home. We like low key holiday celebrations. And then......

December! -- WHoo....can I think about that already?? Of course I can! We are already planning on a winter vacation...somewhere with SNOW....skiing....snowball fights....et. al. There is, of course, the usual hussle and bussle of Christmas shopping. Believe it or not, we already know what BIG gift we will be getting the kids!!! Yep, we are that good...we can plan a year in advance! It will be hard to top this past year for Sierra (laptop and ipod)...but I think we will if the plan stays in action!

So....2009 is already shaping up to be a busy year....and we haven't even planned the social activities yet. It has been 4 short years since the birth of my son. It just doesn't seem possible. But, there it is. Wow!! I feel like hibernating!! :-zzzz

Project 365 Day 2


Project 365 Day 1

I am going to try this big trend of documenting a year of our life...and since our life revolves around 2 kids....our kids....Sierra and Daniel........and since I do not care to have a picture taken of me daily....this will be my version of Project 365.

In case you have not heard of Project 365 it is where you catalog your life every day for the whole year...starting with Jan. 1. At the end of the year, you can start with pic 1 and go through to pic 365 and see how you have changed. Some take a standard face shot each day to see those changes. Others just take a general pic of things that happen throughout each day (I saw one that had on one particular day gone to the mall with her kids and she took a pic of just that).

I will focusing on changes in my kids...focusing mainly on face and hair! SO....here is day 1...taken yesterday January 1, 2009!
