#ProjectLife Week 12

Soccer, Superheroes, Elmo, LSU Baseball, and more….

Image

My little superheroes….. they love dressing up in their costumes and pajamas.  I know one day they will no longer want to dress up so I am trying to capture every adorable moment.

Image

FINALLY I feel back on track.  Praying, sleep, making lists, and completing some tasks have gotten me over the hump.

Image

Braxton’s ADHD counselor has been working with him on following directions and one of the ideas that we use at home is a chore chart.  Braxton has been doing excellent with this visual tool.  He loves putting the stickers on the chart and feeling a sense of accomplishment for doing well.  After spring break, we will work on visual tools for school.

At the beginning of the year, I wrote down some resolutions.  Seems like people lose sight of their resolutions quickly, so this year I am using my Project Life album to help me refocus on them throughout the year.  Some of the resolutions I am not doing well on such as Sit Ups – haven’t done it once ! Others such as praying more, playing with the boys more and using other tools for creativity in my album, I have been more successful at.

Friday Fun Time – playing outside with the family. PawPaw helping Braxton be Superman.

Image

Here is my favorite part of this album : RIGHT NOW.  It helps me capture things that I might not necessarily have pictures of such as…… Braxton sending his best friend Carter a video to wish him luck on his 1st swim meet or Jaxson showing us his food in his mouth and laughing out loud because it is so funny to him.

Products I used this week were Becky Higgins Project Life Cobalt Edition, Design A page protectors, EK Success stickers, Creative Imaginations Bubble Letters, Tracy reed Digital Bowl A Rama Kit  Arrow.

I love this project !

Favorite story of the week: Jaxson wanted to put a DVD in the player, when Braxton realized which one it was he was adamant that Jaxson could not watch because it had a ‘naked’ person in it. When I looked at DVD it was of MDA camp, We do skits to entertain the kids and one of the guys had dressed up like baby Cupid so he had his shirt off. It was so cute to see Braxton being protective of his baby brother.

Feeling blessed that my best friend and I get to have our kids grow up together….

Loaded Cauliflower and Broccoli

So we are eating lunch at my mother in laws today and I love her cooking… Rice dressing, potato salad with homemade mayonnaise, steaks and pork n beans. Carb festival but delicious!!!! I needed to find something HEALTHIER to contribute and this is what I came up with.

Loaded cauliflower and broccoli from Pinterest (all those hours pinning stuff and I am finally creating one).

1 cup cauliflower
1 cup broccoli
1 tsp butter
1 tbsp ranch dressing
Shredded cheddar cheese
1 strip bacon , crumbled
Salt and pepper

Steam veggies with butter. Place in Baking dish, mix in ranch dressing, top with cheese, microwave until melted. Add bacon to top.

Less carbs than baked potato with all the flavor.

Project Life : Week 9 Lottery trip, Soccer, Playing, Right Now

When I begin putting this week together, I was struggling because I had been out of town all week and felt like I was not in touch with what the kids did.  When I got back, I caught up quick with some photos.  I went up into my scrapbook room and started working on the journaling.   It all came together quickly and I was even inspired to use other products such as Creative Imaginations – Impress-ons.  I am trying to be aware of my goals to branch out and be creative in my Project Life posts.

Image

Lottery Fun – we are not allowed to play Louisiana or National Lottery games so when I go visit another state, I like to have some fun with their scratch-off tickets.  When someone was going to the store, I jumped on the chance to buy me a few.  I WON $1.  Whoohoo !

Image

One of my favorite Features this week was my RIGHT NOW journaling cards.  I scraplifted this idea from Kristina Proffitt on Michelle Bostinelos Saturday Blog Hop.  Discovering this idea was perfect timing since I hadn’t been with the boys for the whole week.  It allowed me to capture a different aspect of our lives.

Project Life : Week 8 busy, busy, busy, Rodeo

Two words to describe this week : BUSY and Fun!

03 10 13_6670

We had an incredibly busy week…. karate, soccer, homework, WORK, WORK, WORK,  then Houston Rodeo.  It was nice to have some downtime to enjoy Braxton one on one.  He gets less attention now that Jaxson is around so I enjoy small pieces of time with just him.

Robbie, Corrina and Brandon recently moved to Houston.  They met us at the rodeo and we got to spend the day together.  Sure do miss them but enjoyed our time.

The rodeo is full of sights to see, from animals to shopping to events.  We love going every year.

We started soccer practice this week and games on Saturday.  I see more agressiveness with Braxton than two years ago.

Got to have a night out with the hubby…. Jason Aldean concert 1st time.  Stood the whole time and danced my behind off.  Thoroughly enjoyed this concert !
