The 52 Project/Week 31

We’ve had a nice quiet weekend around the house this week…so we decided to make some pumpkin squares together!  Cody helped with gathering ingredients and measuring…Avett, you were quality control on the ingredients.  I forgot how much you two liked pumpkin straight from the can!IMG_20150104_110312 Then, Avett found his glasses again while playing with the play dough.  I love these glasses.IMG_20150104_113615Love you guys-

My sweet perfect little man.  I love your daring sense of fashion.  : )IMG_4880 IMG_4888 IMG_4887 IMG_4883Last week Dad brought home a large box from school for you guys to play in.  It has needed several duct tape repairs, but you guys are still having a blast with it.  Tonight it was a “boat”…you drank your milk while “looking at the stars”.  Love you guys.IMG_4892

The 52 Project/Week 28

This week CeeCee has been trying to fit is as many Christmas projects as possible.  Poor Avett…you are so NOT interested in the arts and crafts, but at least it keeps Justyce and Cody out of your hair while you play with your toys!  : )

The 52 Project/Week 19

So, mommy has had a really packed schedule and dropped off on her weekly photo shoot.  However, I recently cleaned off all of the pictures from my cell phone and had so much fun seeing all of the cute pictures that I had forgotten about on there!  This post has a few of my oldie but goodie favorites from the cell phone!
