My 365 Project

I have never been one to like my picture taken. I've always been the one behind the camera. My mom passed away ten years ago and I have very few photos of her. Only a handful of photos of my youth exist. I have my memories and no one can ever take that but for my kids, I want lots and lots of photos. My husband laughs at me sometimes because I take so many pictures of the kids. I don't want to miss a single milestone. They grow up too fast and if you're not careful you'll miss something important. My friend Girl is an amazing photographer and she did a 365 project last year. She's an artist and was very creative with her pictures. It was inspiring to watch her from afar and admire her work. She inspired me to take photos of myself with my children. It is going to be really hard and often times very boring but I WILL take one picture a day for the next year. I WILL do this for my children. I'm not an artist but a picture a day with one of my beautiful children should be a doable task. Wish me luck!

Attacked by Kisses

What's better than being attacked by baby kisses? She's definitely like her brother and sister, the later it gets, the sillier she gets. I was getting ready to put her jammies on her and settle down for the night when she started her attack. She got the giggles and we had a little mommy and Thumper play time. It was great!

Let it SNOW

To get snow twice in a year is simply amazing but to get snow twice in a MONTH is absolutely unheard of. I hate the winter and I hate to be cold but THIS is amazing and I am so thankful for the beautiful snow. Bubba and I just couldn't help ourselves, we had to get out in it even if it is almost midnight. Thank you Jesus!!!

Kiddy Kitchen

After a cold evening at the track, Sister and I had to come home and make hot chocolate in HER kitchen. Times like these are for the memory books.

Sit Ups

Papaw and MeMe got him a weight bench for Christmas and he's all about working out now. Here, I'm holding his feet while he works those abs! He's doing really good so far but we'll see how long it takes before that weight bench starts collecting dust.

Ring Around the Rosies

Another nice warm day to go out and play. Sister loves to play ring around the rosies on the trampoline. She's been playing on the trampoline since before she could walk. We bought it for Bubba on his 3rd birthday and it's been through two hurricanes. We definitely got our moneys worth out of it.

Her first sparkler

It was entirely too cold on New Years to get out and pop fireworks. Even with a bonfire it would have been too cold and nasty to have the kids out. Hubs decided since we had a little better weather we'd build a fire and let the kids do some sparklers and roman candles. They had a blast!

Miss Hollywood

Finally, a warm day to go out and play. It was so nice to finally get outside and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. It didn't last long but at least we got our daily dose of vitamin D. :-)

Bad Day

My sweet girl had a really bad day. A trip to the Dr. and a not so good outcome put her in a really bad mood. She just needed some mommy snuggles to make it all better.

Study time

Trying to help my boy study for a test but two little girls were sure making it difficult.

Sleeping kisses

I almost forgot about my 365 and snapped this one while my princess was sleeping.

His hands are huge

What has happened to my little boy? He's growing up so fast! His hands are huge, they are bigger than mine now. Don't even get me started about his feet. I love watching him grow but it's so bittersweet. I miss him being little and shudder to think that he'll soon be a teenager. Time really does fly!

Hanging out

Just hanging out with my girlies, watching cartoons! I love those girls!


Wow!! LOTS of snow today! We woke up this morning with about 6 inches on the ground. I'm 35 years old and this is the most that I can ever remember it snowing here at home. It was BEAUTIFUL! Sister had so much fun helping me build a snowman. She loved for mommy to build it so that she could knock it down.

Wagon ride in the snow

Snow is not a common thing here. We may see a few flakes here and there but almost never enough to actually play in. The first sight of real snow and we had to get everyone bundled up and get out in it. Thumper wasn't too into it, she's still too little but Sister had a blast!

Pony Riding

Baby girl isn't quite sure if she likes the pony or not. She always makes the funniest faces when I put her on it. Then when I take her off of it she looks at it and babbles like she's talking to it. I'd give anything if I knew what she was saying.

Let's Slide

Oh how she loves to slide! She's getting pretty good at it too. I can set her at the top of the slide and let go and she'll push herself off. It's so cute and she gets so excited, almost like she's proud of herself. It's hard to believe that she is already seven months old. It seems like only yesterday she was still in my belly.

Sleeping at the Game

We went to cheer on Bubba at his last basketball game of the season. It was ugly! They got beat by over 30 points. We don't have a great coach. We also lack talent but the coach, he's too soft. Thumper, well she had all of the ballgame that she could handle. She took her a little nap and was ready to go when the game was over.


My girl loves her puffy snacks. I'm not even sure what you call them, you know, the ones that melt in their mouth. She could eat an entire container of those I think.

Movie Night

Movie night with my sweet boy. He got to pick the movie and he chose a classic. Friday the 13th Uncut. I know it's a horror movie and a bit gory but it is really mild compared to the horror films today. I hadn't seen it since I was about his age so it was almost like watching it for the first time. Good movie, enjoyed spending time with my boy!

Taming the Tangles

We had to comb out all of the tangles after bath time. Her hair is so thin and fine that it just mats up and if you don't get those tangles out in a hurry, you'll have a big mess. She loves to have her hair brushed. She's not always still but she like it.


She's all about letters these days. She doesn't know all of them yet but she recognizes most. She has to point them out on my shirt and talk about each one. Anything to keep from getting ready for bed. It's so awesome watching her grow into a little girl.

Our Time

Bubba and I got a little alone time after the girls went to sleep. Now that I have two babies it is hard to find time to spend with just my boy. He's an amazing kid and he rarely complains but he deserves more alone time with his mommy and I'm really trying to make that happen for him.

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles! I don't typically give the girls a "bubble" bath but they both had a little congestion going on so I filled the tub with vapor bath. Thumper had never really had a "bubble" bath and she absolutely loved it. It was really difficult though because she was so excited that she couldn't stay still. I had to keep my hands on her because she kept flipping over in the water. She's mobile now and I can't contain her. Sister, well she's always loved a good bubble bath. Keeping her from jumping and splashing is a chore. Bath time with my girlies is so much fun!!!

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Thumper!! She loves to play airplane. She laughs and giggles the entire time. Just be careful and keep a look out for falling drool, if your not careful it'll put you're eye out, lol.
