I know I probably say this every week now but ... one week closer to the end of this year's Project 365! WOOT! :) At this point in the year, I'm so ready to be done. Even with all the pretty Christmas lights and decorations. I'm sure I'll look back at my photo books one day and be glad I did this for three years in a row. And, who knows, I might even decide to do it again another year down the road. But for now, I'm excited to be almost done. Have I said that already? :)
This week was another busy one. (When aren't they busy anymore?!) Meetings, sick kids, doctor appointments, and birthday celebrations, just to name a few things I was busy with. Doug was on vacation and we had planned to go shopping, but that didn't happen. We're planning to try again on the 18th when he has the day off for Keira's Christmas concert. Her concert is at 8:00 a.m. so we'll leave straight from there. Unless, of course, I have all the shopping done by then. Which is highly possible. I'm more of an online shopper these days. I can take my time and very often get better deals and free shipping. Gotta love it when Christmas presents get delivered right to your door. And I can shop in my jammies. :)
Anyway, let's take a look at what last week looked like ...
Keira made this sign in "shop" class and asked me to photograph it, along with a few other items she made. She needed to make a display board documenting her time in class.
I picked up this cute ornament at Target.
Alex turned 7 today! Seven! My baby! I did a little tribute post to him. You should go see it. He was so stinkin' adorable when he was smaller. He still is, but you know what I mean. :)
We had some cupcakes left over from Alex's birthday celebration at church Wednesday evening. So I photographed them for the "colorful" prompt for the Scavenger Hunt.
When all else fails, photograph some bokeh. :)
We celebrated Alex's birthday with family today. I made his cake again this year. I didn't want to, but my cake-making friend was all booked up this weekend. I need to remember to ask earlier. Her cakes are incredible! Although mine wasn't bad for whipping up on the fly.
This week is another busy one. Fun stuff, but busy. We already had our church's Christmas dinner, had a quick photo shoot yesterday, and Bible study this morning. Coming up are: prepping for Wednesday night church (yes, I tend to wait until the last minute), painting my living room (I hope), craft night with the girls, my birthday, possibly a girls' movie night out if I can swing it, Praise & Coffee, and the Toby Mac concert with Keira and the youth group. I think I might just sleep all next week. :)
