Project Life Tuesday - November Week Two

Hello and welcome to Project Life Tuesday! I am taking a photo every day in 2011 and putting them together in an album to create a unique keepsake of this year for our family.  Be sure to check in on what others are doing with their projects over at The Mom Creative!

Sunday, November 6th - First thing Micah did after getting dressed was grab his brother's brand new lightsaber and start a duel with Mommy.  Grandma's already said she's going to get Micah one of his own with the sounds and lights!

Monday, November 7th - We had a significant amount of birthday cake left over after Isaiah's birthday party.  With Daddy gone in China, it's up to us to finish it off.  I love that my Micah John eats the frosting first.  Just one of the many wonderful things about him.

Tuesday, November 8th - We spent the day at my parents' house today.  That little wall has height markings for both my sister and me since we were teeny tiny and now my kids are starting to add their marks.  Such a simple, but cool way to record memories.

Wednesday, November 9th - Today is Isaiah's 4th birthday!!  I made him birthday pancakes this morning, he got to bring birthday treats to preschool, and then we drove into Madison to take him to the Nitty Gritty for lunch so he could really enjoy being the special birthday boy.  We also got the first snow of the year today, something Isaiah says God sent him as a birthday present!

Thursday, November 10th - This is just one of Micah's mischief faces.  That boy can get into trouble like no other and you can always read it all over his cute little stinker face.  Just makes me want to tickle the snot out of him!  :)

Friday, November 11th - I'm so in love.  If he's sleeping when The Bigs are finally napping and the house is quiet, I spend several precious minutes just staring at this guy. 

Saturday, November 12th - Spent the day at the in-laws' house so the boys could get in some serious playtime and Mommy could get a little break.  Aunt Ashley also got some Thomas snuggle time, so it was win/win for everyone.

And thus ends our first seven days of Daddy's business trip to China.  It hasn't been easy and we're all anxious for him to return, but we're surviving.  There's a lot of "fake it 'till you make it!" going on around here. 

Side note....I'm thinking of taking a slightly different approach to Project Life 2012.  Instead of doing a photo every day like I've done for 2010 and 2011, I'm considering switching to just doing a weekly layout.  Some days just have better photo potential than others and then I can easily include 5 photos from one day, but then skip the days where nothing really drew my camera's gaze.  Sara does a great job of this over at Peterson Stories.  Check it out and let me know what you think!
