Journal Writing

This could totally be Kendall one day. The journal prompt for the day was What is your favorite place? Here is one little girl's response in my class!!
For those of you that don't have Big Red in your town, I am SO sorry! It's a Pepsi product and is mine and Kendall's favorite drink! AND we LOVE White Castles as well:) Chris said Kendall will not write this in her first grade journal because we will have better eating habits than that! We will just see:)
Have a great weekend and stay warm if your living in this snow right now!

31 Weeks 5 days

It seems so weird to say that I am already 31 weeks almost 32! I can't believe I just have 8 weeks and 2 days left! I am getting more and more excited and of course still nervous about deliever. I just can't wait to meet Kendall and see what she looks like! Here is my belly for week 31:)Wow you can tell that is not from my good camera:)

I am feeling pretty good this week just a little tired today. This week Kendall has been in my ribs a lot and I can finally feel defined body parts like her shoulders, arms and legs. At night we play a little game. I push her arm and she pushes my finger back. Last night was the first time that a kick or punch rather really hurt me. It got me when I was almost asleep. I was laying on my left side which is where her arms are and she punched me pretty hard! It didn't feel all that great and I am sure that will get worse as she gets a little bigger!

I am ready for her to get here on March 26:)

Spring PLEASE hurry!!

I am so ready for spring weather! I don't like the cold anymore and I am TIRED of the snow and ice. We had a bad morning here yesterday. It snowed and melted and froze all within about an hour and there were over 600 accidents in the morning! It came out of nowhere and no one expected it! Here and Here is what the roads and our city looked like yesterday morning.

And guess what? Thursday and Friday could be just as bad! I don't want ANYMORE snow days because we already go until May 26 and I want all the summer days off I can get! I know I am spoiled by having my summers off, but I want to keep it that way:)

I am excited though because I finally convinced myself to order This which I have been drooling over for the past few days! I can't wait for it to come so I can go through it and start getting it ready for Kendall's arrival:)

Hope you guys have a great Wednesday! The week is half way over!!!

Project LIfe Week Three

Chris and I registered at Babies R Us tonight. It was exhausting! My feet were so swollen! I can't wait til we get all of Kendall's things!

Tonight since Chris and Brad were playing darts Jennifer invited me to TGIFridays for here sister's birthday. It was fun and the food was yummy!


I love the Target dollar Section! I got all of these file folders so that I can organize some of my scrapbooking stuff.
I decided to make a little gift book for one of my showers. I like it so much I think I might make one for my family shower also.
Look at all the dishes! Our dishwasher broke. So guess who gets to do all the dishes now! Which is why our sink looks like this tonight!
This afternoon Chris and I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the letters for Kendall's room. We are painting them pink and hanging them on the wall above her crib.
Today was Kathleen's birthday. We got her some I love my aunt frames and shirt from Kendall. She will be a great aunt!

Don't forget to go by The Mom Creative to see more great Project Life Pictures:)

Scrapbooking Your Baby's First Year

I have been thinking about this for quite a while now. How do I want to scrapbook Kendall's first year. For Christmas I made Chris a scrapbook full of premade pages such as this one and this one I also added a page for each month in his book like this one AND this one!
I had a lot of fun making this. I never make premade layouts, but I think this book will be so cute when it is finished and I know how much Chris enjoyed looking at it Christmas morning. There are over 20 double page layouts in the book already and there a few more he wants me to to add to it. He will enjoy it EVEN more when Kendall's pictures are actually in it! I used this book for the album. I love these American Craft albums from Hobby Lobby and when they run them 50% off you can't beat the price! I added the K on the cover instead of a picture because sometimes I feel like the pictures gets messy when they are open like that.
So, I have been really debating on getting this Sweet Baby Kit from Creating Keepsakes. I really like how it is set up and I really have no intentions of doing a traditonal baby book. I know I will probably get one for a shower gift, which is fine, but I really want to do something different. I was wondering if any of you use this kit and if you recommend it for a baby's first year? I am thinking of ordering it at the end of this week so I can go ahead and start organzing it. I don't think you can beat the deal. There is SO much stuff in this kit and it seems to be worth the money for sure! I just about have myself convinced, so what do you think?

Project Life: Week Two

Please head over to Jessica's blog for
Today was snow day number 2 and I was not excited about that, but safety is always first! My poor car is covered and won't be moving for a few days!
Today mom and I went to the mall to pick up Kendall's nursery bedding. We got the bumper, quilt, sham pillow, and bedskirt. Once we got home we could not wait to put the bed all together. Mom, Chris and I went straight up and put it all together. Chris and I go in Kendall's room once a day everday! We are so excited and it makes me even more excited to see how excited Chris is about her arrival:)
It only took us a week and a half but we finally got Christmas decorations put away! Now our house looks so bare!
Teresa made the animals a new blanket. Of course Jax liked it! It took Zoey a while to warm up to it and all its smells.
Zoey got sick while we were at work. She smelled really bad so Zoey got a bath from Chris!
After 13 days in below freezing temperatures we finally warmed up today to 39degrees! A heat wave after that many cold days!
Tripp made his first visit to our house tonight and Zoey was very interested in him! Can't wait to see her with Kendall!

30 Weeks and getting stuff done:)

I got some things done today on my Project Life and I was so excited. I got a little more organized. Two things I completed were getting all of the weekly date cards in their place and the plastic month locaters in their place as well. It took me a LONG time to get that far. I have up to April Journal cards in and I might get a few more months done in a few minutes. I am finding that if I keep it up then I am more likely to finish:) If I have everything in it's place then all I have to do is slide pictures in and journal on the cards that are already in place. Makes it so much easier!

I also went to Target today to add the bouncy to our registery. We registered at Babies R Us on Friday and boy was that a JOB. My feet were so swollen by the time we left that place it was not fun, but I am really excited about everything that we registered for. We are having three showers. My work throws a shower, I am having a family shower and I am also having a friend shower. They will ALL be in February so we have a busy month ahead of us:)

We are getting closer and closer to Kendall's arrival. Only 9 weeks and 5 more days. I am getting so excited and ready for her. I can't wait. I am really scared about giving birth. I have talked to my friend Jenn who just had Tripp in December and it still makes me nervous. I guess because anything can happen. I just have to stay strong and pray that everything goes alright!

Here are my week 30 pictures. I am getting bigger and bigger.

Have a great Monday everyone:)

Project LIfe Tuesday: Week One!

Chris and I spend our New Years with Brad, Jennifer, and Tripp. We compared our bellies and at 28 weeks I think I definitely win!
Today was the big UL/UK game. Even though we lost I still had fun watching with this little guy.

I made a yummy supper of steak tonight. After two weeks off tomorrow is my first day back to work.

Our laundry room never looks this empty. I caught up on all the laundry and it's even put away! We'll see how long this last!

Finally my kit came today! I couldn't wait to start organizing it! I got all the way to May and Kendall wanted me to stop:)
After Christmas Chris bought a Wii, which I was pretty excited about! I love Super Mario Bros. so I was very happy when we got for the Wii! We spend lots of time playing!
After 3 days back we already have a snow day. Not something i wanted because it means one less day with Kendall this summer! Charley enjoyed the snow though.
Jessica Turner has posted her Project life week one and a McLinky for others to link up to! Go check it out for more great photo ideas!!

I had so much fun working on week one of Project Life. I hope you enjoy my first week! I have all of my journal cards done up to date. I think I will print out my pictures monthly or bi monthly. I have them saved in a file so they are ready to be printed! I LOVE this project so far.
Hope you will come back and visit next week:)

29 Weeks 3 Days

10 weeks and 4 days to go and I am soooo ready!! How did my belly go from this....


at just 5 weeks along, to this...at 29 weeks along! Everyone says you don't like that big, come on I know they are trying to be nice haha! I feel like I am already wobbling:)

I am excited that Kendall is in there growing stronger and stronger everyday. Her kicks get bigger and bigger everyday.

She doesn't stop moving and I love that:) However, she is moving into my ribs now with her shoulder and arms (we are guessing!) and that can get uncomfortable now!

I do miss being able to put on my own shoes, bending over to pick something up, being able to BREATHE, and wearing normal NON maternity clothes!

I love Kendall more and more everyday and we are getting soooo anxious to meet her! She is going to be so much fun and I just can't wait to spend the summer playing with her!!

December Daily Part 2















Here is part 2 of my album. Now it is all bundled up with my Christmas things. I can't wait to pull it out next year and look through it. I know a year will make such a difference in our home!
