I am excited to participate in Ali Edward’s Week in the Life project again! This time I went about it a little bit more low key and yet still captured plenty of life. I didn’t take a huge amount of photos this time like I did the last time I did Week in the Life. I never finished my project last time because I was too overwhelmed with all the photos. (several years ago). It was just right this time…I still didn’t use all that I took.
It was harder capturing the older kiddos because they don’t like that as much anymore. (Maybe I should have mentioned #selfies would count??) How about a peek into a teen’s room though? That was allowed! Or her little pile on the kitchen counter that documents her life right now…play practice every evening!
Phebe on the other hand was no problem. I loved capturing her “day in the life as a bug” on Halloween! She seemed to enjoy wearing her costume all day! Here are a few of my favorites of her…a rough day, getting ready for the day, kitchen play while mommy cooks, and trick or treating!
This is one of those perfect captures that I LOVE!
I loved how Ali captured her own routines and experimented with capturing my own morning tea routine,
Lest we forget the day in the life of a cat,
Or that gas prices are coming down and that we get our gas at an old mom and pop station (though I think it’s just Pop!)
And my all time favorite of the whole week. This photo just really captured the emotion and routine of the end of the day for me. The clock shows the time, the last load of laundry is waiting to be folded and put away. DD2’s clothes pile on the kitchen counter (after numerous reminders for her to put it away). It was a rare balmy day and evening for this time of year, thus the door is open and DH and DD2 are out visiting with the kitties on the swing. You might not and won’t see it all…there is more than words can say in this photo and it will be my personal treasure when I look back years later! This. was. life.
I tried to get everyone involved, telling them they each had devices with cameras so there was no excuse. I still only ended up with one useable photo from DH!
I have uploaded and ordered my pages through Persnickety Prints. Awesomely fast shipping and gorgeous prints.
I can’t wait to work on my album….hope to share that with you soon!
We are having some delightfully cozy days here. Grey, cold, wind, a little snow. Perfect for scrapping, stamping and crafting!
